Zuffa began releasing these compilation DVDs last year with 'the best of 2007'. Let me just say I was a huge fan of this DVD as it contained the great title fights of that year and the hugely entertaining fights featuring lesser known fighters such as the Houston Alexander KOs and Roger Huerta Vs Clay Guida, one of my all time favourite fights.

This year it simply contains the former as Zuffa have simply chosen to include title fights or co-main events which is great for the casual fan but for fans of the sport it seems a little bare.

As a result numerous fights of the night from PPVs are excluded and we are basically given a snapshot of title fights from that year featuring BJ Penn, Lesnar, Mir, Griffin, Evans and GSP. Not a huge VARIETY to say the least. The DVD contains :

Disc 1
-- B.J. Penn vs. Joe Stevenson (UFC 80)
-- B.J. Penn vs. Sean Sherk (UFC 84)
-- Georges St-Pierre vs. Matt Serra (UFC 83)
-- Anderson Silva Video Package
-- Keith Jardine vs. Wanderlei Silva (UFC 84)
-- Fight For The Troops Package
-- Evan Tanner Video Package
-- Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar (UFC 81)
-- Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar (UFC 91)
-- Frank Mir vs. Antonio Nogueira (UFC 92)
-- Contenders Video Package

Disc 2
-- Opening/Highlight Reel
-- Quinton Jackson vs. Forrest Griffin (UFC 86)
-- Quinton Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva (UFC 92)
-- Ultimate Fighter Video Package
-- Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans (UFC 88)
-- Forrest Griffin vs. Rashad Evans (UFC 92)

In actual fact many of these fights are outstanding and contain the biggest and best stars in MMA. Personal favourites include BJ Vs Stevenson, Silva Vs Jardine and Rampage Vs Forrest. However, the GSP Vs Serra fight has no place on this DVD and I can't understand why the UFC chose to omit the GSP Vs Fitch fight from UFC 87, a five round war. Additionally, in my opinion the montage footage of Anderson Silva, best KOs and subs is rushed and doesn't suffice.

Here are some fights I beleive should have been included:
Paul Kelly Vs Paul Taylor (80)
Tito Ortiz Vs Lyoto Machida (84)
GSP Vs Jon Fitch (87)
Thiago Alves Vs Josh Koscheck (90)

Overall the style of the best of 2007 DVD was far superior and more entertaining to watch. Not to mention and hour longer! If it aint broke, dont fix it.
