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.
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.

It was fine. The filming on 1 thru 3 was average. 4 was much better. If you're a UFC fan, you'll like it. (At least an older UFC fan will.)Published 2 months ago by cyi
Some of the most brutal fights you will ever see. I've been a long time MMA fan but even these fights are hard core. Good times for when the guys are over for poker and beer.Published 4 months ago by Regular Guy
