4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be so much better..., 16 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UFC Best of 2012: The Year In Review [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Worth a purchase if you like mixed martial arts and want a taster of what the UFC had to offer in 2012.

However, buy the Blu Ray not the DVD or you will be short changed and not receive the majority of fights - be warned. The DVD I would give only two and a half stars as there is hardly any content in comparison to the Blu Ray.

There is an overview of the year but many great fights are shown in highlight form only and the fights are so tightly edited that there is a rushed feel to things and the interviews after the fights are generally skipped.

There are some great fights in full but there are others that are conspicuous by their absence. The UFC is a big business and they are blatant in their treatment of the fans - spend, spend, spend if you want to follow the sport. Best of 2012? No chance, they have missed too many great fights out and would rather you buy their full collection. Compared to all the other Best of UFCs this one is better than 2011 but not as comprehensible in its coverage of the best fights of the year when compared to other editions.

Nonetheless the UFC is an exciting format for showcasing MMA and those fights that are covered are generally exciting to watch. Just be prepared that the Best of 2012 is arguably good but short changes the fans to the extent that it cannot be considered great or genuinely the 'Best of 2012'.
