In case you were wondering, this is what full fights are on Disc 1: Hughes v. Serra, Condit v. Ellenberger, Marquardt v. Maia, Franklin v. Belfort, Quarry v. Credeur, Silva v. Griffin, Evans v. Machida, Liddell v. Rua, and Jardine v. Silva. The bonus full fights are GSP v. Penn, Swick v. Hardy, Akiyama v. Belcher, Machida v. Silva, Nogueira v. Cane, and Bonnar v. Jones.
On Disc 2: Main full fights are Snachez v. Guida, Couture v. Nogueira, and Lesnar v. Mir. The bonus full fights are Griffin v. Franca, Diaz v. Guillard, Sherk v. Edgar, Stevenson v. Diaz, Penn v. Florian, Carwin v. Gonzaga, Velasquez v. Congo, and CroCop v. Dos Santos.
Overall, a very good product that has tons of great fights of the price.
Flaws? They missed some really big fights and replaced them with some questionable ones. What about Franklin v. Silva? Or Henderson v. Bisping? Now its obvious why Dan Henderson isn't even mentioned in the Blu Ray - he is no longer under contract and Dana White is clearly one who likes to hold a grudge. Second, it would have been nice to hear some of the post fight interviews.
Overall, still an excellent buy. Even with the awkward interface, it is a great deal.

Bonus: Behind The Scenes
All together a good choice of fights for the best of dvd and bluray. Although there are a few fights that I feal are missing from this, that any fan should check out. The fights are,
Dos Santos vs Struve (UFC 95)
Maia vs Sonnen (UFC 95)
Franklin vs Silva (UFC 99)
Mir vs Kongo (UFC 107)
Penn vs Sanchez (UFC 107)
they could have been :
3) St. Pierre-Alves
6) Griffin-Ortiz II
but still, it's a great buy just like I said earlier, just a bit dissapointed with all the fights reverse above, and they still wasting time with all the UFS. The other weird thing is that they put some fights at the bonus features?? why? well, they know better, I assume.
Hopefully the Best of 2010 will be better and UFC Best DVD series will get their grip again.
Condit v Ellenberger
Quarry v Credeur (love the heart in this one! alas, Credeur loses, but he reminds me of a middleweight Forrest Griffin)
Akiyama v Belcher (awesome!)
Sanchez v Guida (how did Guida get out of that first round!?!)
Penn v Florian (mad respect for Florian who never looked like he even had a chance against Penn)
Some of the fights that made me scratch my head as to what they meant as "best of"?
Franklin v Belfort (yawn)
Silva v Griffin (an oddity to be sure; exciting when it happened but one of the best of 2009? hardly)
Diaz v Guillard (disappointing)
Split out between two discs the fights are interspersed (or interrupted by) with some overviews about divisions and the Ultimate Fighter and other fighter synopses. These features put the main cards on these discs as a retrospective of 2009 instead of a "best of"; at least that's how it felt. And the navigation is clunky. Actually, it kinda hurts (maybe that was the point? make us fight to get through some of this to what we really want?). Still, you'll find some fights to your liking on this and I'm sure some that you want. For the drooling fan it'll be a great add. To the fan who wants more it will come up lacking. But the flaws on this presentation drag it down I think. 3.75 stars. I've seen better.
