Review-Keep in mind only one disc has the full fights; the other disc is more of a highlight reel of certain fights. I know most people do not read the fine print, I am guilty but I wanted to clear that up before we talk about this blu ray. I will always think of the last year for UFC as a building time again, they were in the ashes of Brock Lesnar running back to a 5 million contract with WWE and Strikeforce on its last legs to start using more women in 2013 after White has been vocal against ever doing that. To me, the match that is a must watch over and over is Georges St-Pierre Vs Carlos Condit, as I just felt that was the fight that you knew people would remember where they were at that night when it went down. Another match that really had my interest and delivered was Junior dos Santos Vs Cain Velasquez, that was another one of those major fights that you had to witness it, but the repeat watches of this match are not as strong as they are for GSP vs. Carlos.

I know people will complain that you can get the bulk of this off free television, and I agree but for me being such a huge UFC fan, this to me is a keeper for the simple reason that I collect all the other blu rays and dvds, so I have to have the best of year in review. For me though, I think UFC is starting to feel almost like the same old same old that women now fighting was such a smart decision, and for Dana White to personally call out Vince McMahon and the WWE as he is trying to dominate the field, it can all only help. As far as this blu ray goes, the price tag is on the very cheap and if you have a UFC lover in the family this could keep them occupied for hours. Buy the blu ray, get the extra matches and content. I am looking forward to seeing what memories are in the Best of 2013 blu ray next year.
