It's fair to say that back at UFC 1 in 1993 not many people thought that 16 years later UFC would be getting ready for its 100th event and would be easily doing over a million pay per view buys in the U.S alone and have a worldwide audience and would even be now accepted as a mainstream sport and be sanctioned in most U.S states, and sell out arenas in those that it is sanctioned. So what better way to celebrate the historic event UFC 100 would go on and become is to count down the top 100 moments in it's history.
It's fair to say two things saved UFC, first was the Fertitta brothers listening to Dana White and buying the company that was on it's last legs and the second was the self financed make or break reality show The Ultimate Fighter(TUF) becoming an overnight sensation on cable tv mainly thanks to the finale featuring finalists Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin.
So what you get with this dvd is over 3 hours of a countdown(from 100 to 1) of the UFC's greatest moments, whether it be Ken Shamrock's and Tito Ortiz's heated rivalry, Matt Hughes coming back from an illegal groin strike or Randy Couture defying the critics and father time to become a champion at the age of 43 they are all include here, all the great fights and upsets!! I don't want to give away too much as that would spoil the countdown but there's many jump out of your seat moments and it's a great dvd for new fans of the sport to learn a bit of history.
There's loads of talking heads to talk about the moments including UFC president Dana White as well as commentator Joe Rogan and of course loads of the actual fighters that actually competed in the fights.
This dvd is really a must for new and old fans of the UFC and it must hurt the knockers of the sport who said it would never last and was too barbaric. One thing is for sure is that it won't take another 16 years before UFC 200 comes along!!
