I still remember when I first purchased UFC 3 on VHS in the 90's. It was so fresh, underground, and controversial. There were allot fewer rules and no weight classes, and the fighters were masters of their own disciplines. I liked seeing a master of jiu jitsu face off against a master of kickboxing. Today nobody really has a single discipline (they are all mixed martial artist). That is really the huge difference that you will see. The old tournaments featured men, who had dedicated their life to their craft and were true masters of their discipline. Case in point, Royce Gracie is better at Jiu Jitsu than any current MMA fighter, but he also isn't as well rounded as todays fighters, who are well versed in multiple fighting styles.

I also liked how these original tournaments addressed age old questions, such as which fighting discipline is the best, or can a David really beat a Goliath? I also like the classic way the tournament was run. 8 fighters began and winning fighters would advance to the next round to face each other until only one man was left standing as champion.

Yes, I agree that today's fighters are probably better than the ones you will see in these old tournaments, but these guys laid the ground work.

If you are reading this it means you are probably a hardcore UFC fan. You will enjoy the fights I am not going to spoil it for you by telling you who wins. Its great to get this because you get to see how the sport evovles over time, for the better or for the worse, it is up to you to decide. I would recommend going to ebay to buy UFC 1-30, that is what I did becasue UFC only released 1-8 of the UFC classics series.

Longtime UFC fans have no excuse for not buying this set. You get UFC 1-4 in this box set with all the televised matches as well as some retrospective interviews adding insight to the managerial side of the early UFC and some of the fighters. These early UFC matches also feature some of the most legendary fighters such as Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, and Dan Severn.

However, this collection isn't for everyone, hence the 4 star rating. Those of you who only discovered the UFC in the 2000s or later will barely recognize these events as the sport they love. A majority of the matches were highly chaotic and unbalanced. While watching Royce Gracie and Keith Hackney fight each other will likely be entertaining to a modern UFC fan, they would probably find it boring to see Gracie fight Ron Van Cleef in a disapointing one sided match.

The brutality of early UFC may also turn some modern fans off. As brutal as recent UFC fight may seem, they are rather tame and controlled compared to the nearly anything goes mentality of these early UFC events. Kicking grounded opponents, rabbit punches, punches to the groin, and knees to the head were all legal and frequently done.

Also note that these early UFC fighters did not train in what is considered to be the MMA fighting style common over the past few years. This meant that few fighters had a strong ground game and often flopped around on the ground when taken off of their feet.

If you are an old time fan of UFC, then stop reading and buy this set. If you are a newer fan, then it is probably worth checking out anyway, but don't expect the mixed martial arts you're familiar with.

Videos themselves are a great throw-back. Footage is not improved from when it was first produced. However, the learning points and how the Gracies captured America are all there. I purchased them for a class and had it expedited. It arrived three days late. It was not amazon's fault but one of the UPS driver's incompetence. UPS did re-emburse some of the cost, but I would not recommend you purchase this item at an expedited rate.

To no real fault of its own, I was kind of disappointed with this. When I first watched this many years ago, it was so groundbreaking. The knockouts and bloodshed were unlike anything we had ever seen. To watch them now, as a student of the art, it's almost painful. Most technique goes right out of the window after the first punch lands. The majority of the fights end within a minute or two. Even royce looks unimpressive compared to the bjj you can see today (blasphemy, I know). But it is kinda cool to reminisce about how the sport got started and who doesnt want to see a 600 lb sumo wrestler catch a roundhouse to the face?

the old UFC was quite a bit different than the current UFC. I think these matches are much more interesting to watch.

This timeless classic beats any of today's silly "no holds barred" action shows. Royce Gracie and company = the real deal. Too bad this type of quality sparring and grappling is a thing of the past. This 4 box set is a legendary example of where the sport grew from.

The beginning of what is now known as "MMA." Awesome no holds-barred fights-"before there were rules." This is a must have for anyone into MMA. Great fights that show why you must incorporate grappling into your MMA arsenal in order to be successful. Royce Gracie was incredible-taking down much larger and stronger men utilizing "Gracie Jijitsu." A great set of DVD's. Very high quality resolution. I recommend this DVD set.
