Review- Being a fight fan this is just a must have, look at the countdown alone. You have Strikeforce, Pride, WEC and UFC all on one list. To me this is just the definitive list and to hear little comments and interviews by the ones involved in the fights really brings a passion and insight that I felt has been missing from past compilations. While lists like this are also subjective and we will feel there are some serious contenders omitted, I still felt the list was really great. If you saw the special on Fox Sports, you pretty much own this and if not and you are curious about UFC, this is a good little start. I would also like to recommend UFC 100 and the upcoming UFC 168 also as some of the dvds you need to seek out, for a beginner to see what UFC has to offer.

Review-UFC 167 will be the PPV that will be remembered as quite frankly as a very emotional night. I have been a fight fan for the majority of my adult life, I was in awe when Tyson came into the boxing scene and just took the sport to a new level. UFC came on the scene when people wanted an alternative, and the blueprint was a bunch of dudes who were out to either kill or maim their opponents. When Dana White took it over, is when things changed and UFC started to be taken seriously as the true alternative. One thing Dana has believed in is evolution. As the world is changing daily, UFC has also embraced the changes and worked them into the sport. When people think of GSP, this night and this fight was probably the last thing they thought would happen. St-Pierre vs. Hendricks was a hell of a fight, without spoiling the outcome, that if you follow the sport you know that George has decided to take a hiatus and vacate the title. The fight itself went the distance, and was a full and action packed back and forth five rounds. This is a fight that when they come up with the next compilation of greatest fights this has to be in the top 10. The controversy I feel that people are griping about was how they judged the fight. That started a lot of unfair criticisms directed not only to UFC but also fighting in general. The undercard to me was not the story, the press conference after the fight was. But, onto the dvd the undercard was to me a little lackluster and not impressive at all, but the main event and what it started after, is more than worth the price tag. UFC 168 is the one I am the most stoked for, which I will say right now is the must buy of 2014.
