It seems that someone wised up and figured out that people were just getting the 'Best of' collections and skipping the event DVDs and still getting most of the good fights of the year. So I guess they decided to make this years 'Best of' into a teaser in order to try and get you to spend more money and pick up the events on DVD. This wouldn't be an issue for most except that they only release the events on DVD in SD quality which is a big concern to some. I would gladly buy the events on Blu-ray but they don't release them this way so I can really only pick up compilations that come out on Blu-ray and hope that they include the fights I'm interested in. I really hope that they move to releasing the events in DVD/Blu-ray combo packs or just separate editions on each format because I can't even buy compilations anymore because of this highlight non-sense.
It really is surprising how a company can have the best year of its existence only for the 'Best of' compilation to be such a letdown.Read more ›
I don't think it's any surprise at this point that this product isn't what fans were expecting. I think the mistake that the people who put this set together really made was that they weren't just gearing this towards a casual fan, but the kind of person who really doesn't know anything about the trend of how 2011 went. It basically shows every big name fight while emphasizing the important parts of each bout. Highlights really aren't that important to me, personally speaking. Especially when most of the fights highlighted are noteworthy fights worth being on a set in their full. Realistically, would Cheick Kongo vs. Pat Barry been such a crime to have in its entirety, or even Tito Ortiz vs. Ryan Bader? These are both one round fights and although the action didn't come off with a bang to say that they were big points of the year would be an understatement. Replacing full fights for a show composed of highlights felt a lot like a slap in the face. It also hurts the fact that on the Blu-ray many of the fights shown on the highlight reel were shown in their full on the second disc so it came off feeling repetitive.
I think the 2007 set was the best set the UFC has put out to date because not only were highlights kept to a minimum but it emphasized fights that were truly the best of (with the exception of missing both of Couture's fights that year) but it had variety.Read more ›

Good DVD but I wish they had the full fights. They were mostly highlights and the fights I wanted to see the most were just about 30 seconds.Published on February 20, 2013 by Vianney J Hwang
