4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Fights April 8, 2006
Some really good fights at this event, it's like a continuation of UFC 52 which was also a very good event. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu phenom Nick Diaz shows off his well rounded skills by duking it out with Koji Oishi, with an ending similar to his previous stand-up battle with Robbie Lawler at UFC 47. Nate Quarry gets his chance to show his skills that he couldn't show due to injury on The Ultimate Fighter, against cagey veteran Shonie Carter. It's another stand-up war with an explosive finish.

Karo Parisyan and Matt Serra go the distance in a very exciting match. They're both masters on the ground, but also well rounded fighters who throw with aggression on their feet. Even though it went to a decision, both fighters tried to end it throughout the fight, so it's far from a boring decision fight.

Charles Mccarthy and David Loiseau is a classic grappler vs. striker match. Loiseau the striker, drops some vicious elbows from the top, while Mccarthy the grappler, makes several submission attempts. The explosive finish features one of the most brutal body shots in UFC history.

Even Tanner and Rich Franklin engage in a mostly stand up battle, which is surprising considering Tanner's tendency to unleash ground and pound fury on his opponents. Tanner worked hard on his boxing skills, and it shows when he drops Franklin, damn near knocking him out. Tanner's stand up has improved, but it's not quite up to Franklin's level yet, and Franklin turns his face into hamburger meat by the end.

In the main event, up and coming heavyweight Justin Eilers takes on dominant heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski. Eilers has heavy hands, and Arlovski has a questionable chin, but Eilers is a huge underdog against the superbly skilled Arlovski.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Production and Event April 23, 2008
By MMAfan
One thing I like about this dvd release is that they have all the replays and most interviews after the fights. That's one thing missing from almost every UFC event DVD but they have it here! Now onto the event, it was a decent show. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the show does feature lots of mismatches. The guy Diaz fought was a joke, he was so bad even I could have beat him with 1 arm tied behind my back. Quarry did great along with Griffin and Arlovski. Serra vs Parisyian was a great fight and opens with a bang! Overall, if you want to expand your UFC collection, this is a great event to get!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Main Event Featured September 27, 2006
UFC 53 - Heavy Hitters featured two (or 1 ˝) title matches along with interesting match-ups to round out the card.

The night was kicked off with a fight featuring young, but experienced Cesar Gracie fighter Nick Diaz. Diaz had already 4 fights under his belt with only one loss against the talented Karo Parisyan. His opponent was Pancrase fighter who was experienced and versatile. Koji Oishi was a solid fighter who had many decision victories in the Pancrase Organization. This fight Diaz and Oishi would end in an obvious knockout considering the strategy the loser would pathetically employ. Easily, the funniest fight of the night.

Canadian fighter David Loiseau and his sharp elbows was back to reestablish himself as a contender for Evan Tanner's 185lb belt. Loiseau nearly sliced Gideon Ray's head in two at UFC 51. In this awesome display, he lined himself up for a tough challenge against a UFC newcomer. As a smaller show standout, Charles "Chainsaw" McCarthy was pumped and ready for a shot at the big leagues. The fight between the Crow and Chainsaw would feature a rare spinning thrust kick that set up a match ending flying knee! A true highlight reel of a fight!

The sport of MMA has characters and veterans; the one fighter that has both of these two in check is "Mr. International" Shonie Carter. As a veteran of 50 MMA fights and other countless combat related arts, Carter was accustomed to a fight, regardless of what level. His charismatic behavior provides as a plucky comedy relief at times, but in the ring he is all business. This was to be his first fight in the UFC since losing via knockout to Pat Miletich at UFC 32 in June of 2001. His opposition this night would be against a veteran in age only, but certainly not a novice.

3.0 out of 5 stars UFC 53: Heavy Hitters February 1, 2006
Koji Oishi vs. Nick Diaz - Oishi has one of the worst stand-up stances I've ever seen and Diaz makes him pay for it. Quick, so-so opener, wish it would have been more of a contest 5/10

David Loiseau vs. Charles McCarthy - SLOW first round, not helped by McCarthy's youth and not knowing what to do with a downed opponent, but after of the most amazing finishes I've ever seen to a fight 7/10 (3 for the finish)

Nate Quarry vs. Shonie Carter - TUF 1 veteran Quarry takes on the always hysterical Carter in a decent little slugfest, Carter is not ther most gifted fighter in the world, but it's always fun to watch "The Rock" 5/10

Forrest Griffin vs. Bill Mahood - Not too exciting of a fight, but Griffin showed he did have a submission game, Mahood looked like a completely different person in there, Griffin is finally getting a true test at UFC 59 4/10

Kevin Jordan vs. Paul Buentello - Good fight here, Buentello looked on top of his game, Jordan has not impressed me yet, but he may yet, I did not know Buentello could make people tap 6/10

Rich Franklin vs. Evan Tanner - Middleweight Championship - Hard fight to rate, slow first round with a decent knockdown, after that Tanner got BRUTALIZED by "Ace" Tanner has the heart of a lion to even stay in there after the third round, hard to watch someone take so much punishment, a good fight but like I said hard to watch 7/10

Matt Serra vs. Karo Parysian - Great fight from two vets, third round can get a little slow in parts, but first two rounds are excellent, I wish Serra would fight more than he does, because we'd get more fights like this, Karo too 7/10

Andrei Arlovski vs.

1.0 out of 5 stars absolutely horrible.
Just terrible and not worth the money. The fights are horrible and the fighters have very little skill. Puchase PRIDE instead where the best fighters in the WORLD come to fight.
