This set features many classic fights and is a worthy addition to any fight fans library, but is mainly targeted for the casual fan.

With that said, the set is missing many important, or otherwise, some of their greatest fights. When the concept of this set was created, SpikeTV listed X number of fights on their website and the fans voted the order. The top 100 from the poll were included in this set, in the order which they were voted. This created much controversy within the MMA community, when some of their biggest stars from the past and several key fights were nowhere found on the list of fights that the UFC allowed the fans to vote for.

Zuffa/UFC/Dana White decided to re-write history, by not including fights from fighters who were on bad terms with them or left to compete in rival promotions. Instead they only included bouts which shows their former draws lose to their current fighters (Tito Ortiz, Tim Sylvia, Nick Diaz, Josh Barnett, Ken Shamrock, and Vitor Belfort) or just pretend that others don't exist (Frank Shamrock & Andrei Arlovski). By them doing that, they ruined the credibility of a release that truly could have been something special.

Most notably are the lack of any Frank Shamrock fights (the UFC's first ever 5X MW/LHW Champ and their poster boy of the late 90's). Where's his stunning debut against the undefeated 2X Pan Ams champ Kevin Jackson? Where's his first title defense that ended with an absolutely brutal career ending KO? Where's the exciting grudge match against John Lober? Most importantly, where is his title defense against Tito Ortiz? It's a travesty that his title defense against Tito Ortiz is not included. The fight alone is widely regarded as the greatest fight of the UFC's pre-Zuffa era and is still regarded as not only one of the UFC's greatest fights, but as one of the greatest title fights in the short history of this sport we call MMA.

Shame on you Zuffa, UFC, and Dana White for trying to bury the past and re-write history to satisfy self-promotion, while giving the fighters, who made the UFC what it is today, a slap on the face.

A list of key fights that you won't find on this release and may want to look somewhere else, if you're expecting to find them here.

Frank Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz, Igor Zinoviev, Kevin Jackson, and John Lober

Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz 1, Dan Severn 1, Kimo 1 & 2

Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler

Tito Ortiz vs. Wanderlei Silva, Evan Tanner, Vitor Belfort, Guy Mezger 1 & 2, Ken Shamrock 1-3, Forrest Griffin

Yves Edwards vs. Josh Thomson

Marco Ruas vs. Paul Varelens

Vitor Belfort vs. Tank Abbott, Marvin Eastman, Wanderlei Silva, Tito Ortiz

Josh Barnett vs. Randy Couture

Ricco Rodriguez vs. Randy Couture, Andrei Arlovski, Tim Sylvia

Andrei Arlovski vs. Pedro Rizzo, Matyushenko, Tim Sylvia 1 & 2, Marcio Cruz, Cabbage

Mark Coleman vs. Mo Smith, Don Frye

With the exception of the Don Frye fight, all of Tank Abbott's infamous early fights, including the Oleg fight are missing.

If you're new to the sport and want to see a little history of the UFC first hand and watch some of their best fights that were omitted from this release because of politics, the list I provided should be a good start for you.

***The Blu-Ray version includes all 5 episodes of The Ultimate 100 Countdown Show, which is Blu-Ray exclusive and not included on the standard DVD version***

There is also a production mishap, where discs 5 and 6 are labeled incorrectly. Disc 5 is actually disc 6 and vice versa.

Whether youre an old time fan or wanna experience and learn more of UFC, this set is a must own! Almost all fights are exciting(some I find a bit boring); and the HD quality is superb, though one must understand older fights/videos wont have same picture quality as the newer ones, but still good nontheless.

Ultimate 100 Countdown Show is on disc six. A 5 part documentary of highlights and short talks about the 100 fights. Nothing special, but a nice way to recap the fights. Dont watch it if you havent seen the full fights cuz it contains spoilers!

If there are complains I have in this set, its that they should have included the entrance of the fighters, because it adds to the excitement, and some of them are just entertaining to look at! Also, it would have been nice if they added a way to view the fights chronological order, especially when there are rematches involved, cuz the announcers will talk of the previous fights during a rematch, thus spoiling it to newcomer fans. But these complains are just minor, and doesnt really affect the overall experience, so its not worth deducting a point.

NOTE: Previous complains that Disc 5 and 6 are mislabelled/switched, this new set corrected it. And to those wondering why there are 2 of the same item in Amazon, but with different price - this newer and cheaper one uses a regular Blu-ray case, while the expensive one is a digibook version - with a booklet of some stuffs. But other than that, the video contents are EXACTLY the same, nothing was remastered or changed.

All of these posts have NOTHING to do with this DVD, The product on this page is the ULTIMATE 100 GREATEST FIGHTS... Not UFC 100 which all of you are ranting and raving about... UFC 100 would never sell for $90... you are all tools.... this is a recap of the top 100 fights in the UFC, Fans voted for their favorite fights of all time, they had a series on Spike that lasted about 5 episodes briefly covering all 100 bouts, this DVD *probably* has the entire length of the 100 fights on it, instead of just the Highlights like the show. Ha, even the front of this DVD has Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva on it, which was one of the most exciting fights of all time at UFC 79:Nemesis... Far from UFC 100, Next time you write a review and start telling everyone how great it is, make sure your writing a review on the correct product, in this case, the correct DVD. I do not own this DVD, and Im not saying what this DVD is or is not, but it is obviously not what the other posts are referring to. So Buyers beware, this product is not even for sale until November 2009, and the people below that are "Reviewing" this product, are sadly mistaken.

The first and oft addressed issue with this set is that the list lacks some credibility. Certain fights weren't eligible to make the list because the winning fighters were on the outs with Dana White at the time. While Dana has done great things for the sport, this kind of manipulation is eventually going to be the thing that keeps this sport from becoming truly mainstream, the NFL wouldn't get away with that.

That said, the fights that are included are for the most part great fights, the audio and video are the best available for each fight. Keep in mind a number of the early fights were shot in 4:3 format and in a quality only slightly better than VHS.

My biggest complaints about the set are in the actual quality of the DVD production. The menus are incredibly basic with a painful lack of useful information in them. Just seems lazy.

Even worse, though kind of funny, the discs themselves are mislabeled "Disc 6" is in fact Disc 5! Zuffa really aught to be able to hire a production team that can avoid silly mistakes like that!

Overall, it's a satisfactory product with a lot of great fights for the price! But it is a little lacking in polish.

Great offering of some of the best UFC matches of all time. I stress the word *some* though, as the ever-political Dana White and Zuffa omitted some clearly deserving fights that featured fighters who were on bad terms with the company when this set was made (Frank Shamrock and Tito Ortiz maybe?) Still gets a 5 because of my love of MMA but it sure would be a lot nicer if UFC stopped acting like a hormonal teen with its talent.

The "UFC's Ultimate 100: Greatest Fights," a collection of the MMA promotion's 100 greatest fights as decided on by a fan vote, will soon be available on DVD.

And unlike the five-part Spike TV series, which showed just clips of the 100 contests, the new DVD collection will offer all 100 fights in their entirety.

Anchor Bay Entertainment, the current distributor of UFC DVD's, today announced that the eight-DVD set will be available on Nov. 10 for a suggested retail price of $99.97 (you can pre-order UFC's Ultimate 100 on DVD at Amazon.com for $55.99).

Each set will be packaged in an individually numbered, limited-edition box set. A six-disc Blu-ray set will also be available for a suggested retail price $119.97 (you can pre-order UFC's Ultimate 100 on Blu-Ray at Amazon.com for $73.49).

"UFC's Ultimate 100: Greatest Fights" originally aired as a five-part series on Spike TV after a fan voting process determined the order of the contests. The series averaged 1.3 million viewers per episode.

i just returned it as there was great matches however, all through the discs some froze and a lot of the time there was no audio. i sent a email to the company but up to now have not heard anything back. it is very annoying when you can't hear any commentary during these matches.

Sure the UFC left a few fighters off of this collection, but that doesn't stop it from being a great, great collection of 100 fights. You could argue all day about where Fight X should be rated and Fight Z was too high/low, but it doesn't matter in the end. Most fights are in HD @16:9 while the classics are in their original 4:3 format.

It's fun to see the (de)evolution of fighters (see early GSP vs. post-Serra GSP) and some of the grueling battles Randy Couture has been involved with. A decent amount of the fights have a few minutes of intro (like on the PPVs) then skip the introductions and get to fighting. Once the winner is announced, you're off to the next one. It would have been nice to see Rogan (or whomever) interview the participants after the bouts, but it's not a deal killer.

I highly recommend this collection to any MMA fan.
