Yes, the first 10 UFCs allow you to watch the sport change to what it is now, as well as watch how the martial art community slowly 'wake up.' I recommend watching 1 through 10.

The more modern ones are rife with rules, but you can gain a better understanding of what 'works' in these sort of competitions, as opposed to the "guessing game" that existed in the early UFCs.

I found it odd that so many people recommended the earlier events.I think the new stuff is so much more entertaining.The fighters are matched up better and each opponent is very well rounded.

The first few are a must see. They may have not contained all of the best fighters as they do now but the diversity was incredible.

Now it seems there are only grapplers and strikers due to the rule changes.

Oh and I think it was the 2nd one where a dude is hitting a guy square in the nuts like 5 times. Ye, you gotta check out the first few to see what no holds barred really means. I would start at 1 and just get the next one every weekend till I saw all of them. There is something to learn from all of them.



That 210 pound guy was Keith Hackney,he beat the hell outta that fat dude.He's also the same guy who punched Joe Son in the nuts....but it was more like eight times.

Well, to me it's not about entertainment. I watch these things to help expand my understanding of the arts, to see things in action, to catch the mistakes, and the finishing moves. The more modern UFCs have far more rules and refereeing, so less 'street' applicable activities are being implemented. The weight classes implemented in the newer UFCs have significantly undermined what can be learned from watching these fights. As well, the actions are more focused on a particular blend of techniques that work well in such events, but would be detrimental outside of the ring. And finally, the first ten show differing systems going head-to-head, while the modern UFCs show people pretty much hitting each other with same or similar techniques/styles.

So, if you're into entertainment... i suppose the more modern stuff would be more attractive. That's just not my bag baby.

Best UFC! Prob UFC 40 with Ken n Tito, UFC 22 n UFC 2, 5 n 6 were pretty cool even despite the 1st few UFCs were mostly primitive brawling.

My favourites from what I have seen are :

UFC Brasil - watch belfort as he uses the true version of the straight blast on silva's face.
see frank shamrock just destroy john lober.

43 - couture beat up liddell & other good matches

44 - couture beat up tito , loisseau shows how to use elbows x rivera plus others.

42's not bad too.

As a few people have said, Hits 1&2 and knockouts are a good laugh

Hits 1 has some of the really old school classic stuff, very entertaining

It sure was. What was funny about that fight, the one where the big guy charged him through the cage door, was that this Hackney guy...not sure what he trained in but he was just whacking him in the back of the head once the fat guy was down on his knees. It looked like punching a bowling ball, his head hardly moved, must of hurt his hand pretty bad. No sign of any elbows, kicks, submissions...nothing lol

nick,

Hackney was a " white tiger " kempo man , and he broke his hand on the fatty's head .

that's why he could not continue .

damn hilarious fight though . just goes to show , no matter how big they are , a well connected power strike will bring 'em down.
