Great finish in that title fight.
Julian Cowles
The battle of the streaking fighters would be even for a round, but would end at the beginning of the second round with a textbook submission.

This is yet another solid UFC event.

The feature fight was short unfortunately but really good. I've waited to see the rematch of Liddell and Couture fight for awhile. The Matt Hughes fight was unbelieveable!!! Great finish in that title fight. Quite a few tap outs on this DVD. As soon as I saw it on pay per view I couldn't wait to order the DVD and watch it again.

This is yet another solid UFC event. I don't want to give too much away, but there are some things that should be obvious at this point. As I've said before, George St. Pierre is indeed dangerous. At this event, St. Pierre takes on Jason "Mayhem" Miller. Miller is certainly up to the challenge, but St. Pierre is just too much for most fighters to handle. He's on his way to MMA greatness as one of the most well-rounded fighters I've ever seen.

In another moment of note, Matt Hughes shows the spirit of a true champion in his rematch with Frank Trigg. Hughes experiences a scary moment in the octagon, but collects himself and gets right back into the bout, making for an inspirational performance. This is a must-see.

The Couture/Lidell fight is a shocker! We again are treated to seeing two of the greatest MMA fighters of all time square off again. In their first meeting a few years earlier, Couture dominated Liddell during one of the most amazing late-career victory runs in UFC history (defeating Liddell, Ortiz & Belfort). By this time, Liddell is a different fighter- and the battle bears little resemblance to their first meeting. Regardless of the result, these are the absolute cream of the crop in the light heavyweight division and I love watching them fight...

There isn't a poor fight on the DVD. This should be required viewing for fans of mixed martial arts. The DVD also includes the usual UFC behind the scenes snippets that are also definitely worth watching.

I don't know why I waited forever to come and put up a review for this event, but I guess I got lost in the moment of how good, if not great, this event was.

I'm a hardcore MMA fan and I loved the idea of the returns of Mike Van Arsdale, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Travis Wiuff, Joe Doerkson, and Ivan Salaverry. also, the fight of the night on paper was George St. Pierre vs. Jasan Miller....GSP never disappoints.

the main event was definately overshadowed on how great the card unfolded before we got to the last fight. I was incredibly pumped throughout the Cote/Doerkson fight, which was easily the fight of the night. these guys worked and entertained. Cote was nearly flawless in his submission defense while Doerkson kept with the pressure. there were no holes during this match that was boring....all action from these 2 well deserving fighters to be in the UFC....rating: 10/10

Ivan Salaverry made a great impression to the fans and the UFC with his performance against Riggs. hardcore fans know that Salaverry is a defensive fighter, but when a fighter brings it to him, that's when he shines and proved that against a very aggressive Riggs....rating: 7.5/10

Miller/GSP did not disappoint one bit. Miller was game, but GSP was just too strong. my favorite moment from that fight was when Miller tried to kip-up from the bottom, only to be met by GSP's right roundhouse that sent him right back down to the mat on his back....rating: 8/10

Lindland was very aggressive against Lutter. this may have been the only time Lindland was entertaining other than the 2 fights against Baroni. Lindland was definately on a mission and wanted to make a statement and claim that he was prime and ready for a MW title shot....

I ordered this on PPV, and it was worth the price. Overall, the fights were great to anyone who is a fan of MMA. If you say it sucked, then you are just someone who wants to see a brawl.

I would offer more insight on the matches, but I watched this a while back and can't remember details. It isn't going to be the only DVD out, King Of The Cage has over 13 hours of fights for just about the same price or lower.

If you are a fan of MMA, I recommend this.

Somehow, 'Captain America' Couture seems like the good guy in these battles, and this rematch with Lidell. Maybe because Lidell comes across as a thug, and lacks the presumed intellect of the older thoughtful Couture. Randy on another dvd, said he found the knockout fascination 'being morbid'. Doubtful Lidell knows the use of this word.

The bout is pitched as a battle of a striker vs a grappler, though that dichotomy is moot at this level, as both fighters have strong skills in each area. Nonetheless, great grappling 'should' defeat great striking, not so much the case here. The undercard is listed elsewhere, and was excellent. Officiating here is very weak, whereas it is usually right on the money (you will see what I mean).

The organization UFC still is guttoral and classless, regardless of what you think about its BJJ/Gracie roots. Do we really need audience shots of celebrities. Are the rocket scientists behind UFC trying to tell us its ok to like UFC, the cool kids are doing it? The 'personality' of the fighters is preserved by UFC. This would be good except that for most fighters, you picture them out of the octagon circa Cell Block D.
