By Sebastian Fernandez VINE VOICE on October 12, 2007
One of the many reasons that make MMA a great sport is how quickly things can change and the fact that favorites can go down in a jiffy. In this sense, UFC 69 was a great event, with several great fights and a couple of surprises. However, there are two things that gave me mixed feelings towards this DVD. First, there are a couple of undercard fights that are not good at all, and even more surprisingly, the fight between Sanchez and Koscheck, which I expected to be one of the best in the event, was one of the worst fights I have seen in the sport. The other aspect that I did not like is that since the producers wanted to include nine fights in the DVD, and most of them were lengthy, something had to give. They decided to eliminate most of the usual interviews, the breaks between rounds, and even limit the replays and presentation of the fighters. In my case, I would have preferred to see one less of the undercard fights and get all the previous elements. I can understand that some people may disagree and prefer the fights, so those will be happy with the decision.

As to the fights themselves, there are four that I can point out as outstanding. In Sell vs. Leites, the winner of the fight puts on a clinic of Ju-Jitsu, ground and pound, and submission defense. Grove vs. Belcher starts out the main card with some amazing striking and a beautiful submission to decide the bout. Huerta vs. Garcia is a fight with lots of action, striking with fists and feet, ground and pound, you name it. Finally, the main fight of the night is electrifying, not only because of its technical aspects, but also due to the energy level of the gladiators and the crowd.

To sum it all up, there are some great fights here, but the overall quality of the DVD is damaged by some of the bouts and by the poor decision-making by the producers.

For those who were lucky to see the event live, I envy you. This event definately stands out from the past few as it had it all. It had knockouts, a darce choke, pillow fist punches from the mount, a leg lock, comedy on the microphone, and most importantly: the biggest upset in UFC history.

If there was a time for the saying "anything can happen in MMA", Matt Serra (11-1 underdog) proved it with his dynamite fists and knocking off and out George St. Pierre. Remember, George St. Pierre was just about to start his legacy with title defenses and most likely become the greatest welterweight in the post-Hughes era. But all that was derailed as Serra walked away with the win and the gold.

Who still believes in the saying "nice guys finish last"?

The biggest disappointment of this card was the Koschek/Sanchez fight. A major letdown for what should have been a slugfest. However, the main event made up for it, as Matt "The Terror" Serra made all the doubters and skeptics eat a major slice of crow by shocking the world and upsetting a very talented and capable George "Rush" St. Pierre to win the welterweight title. (SIDE NOTE: Travis Lutter, TUF 4 middleweight winner who blew a golden opportunity by failing to make weight for his bout against middleweight champ Anderson Silva, should take a lesson from Serra.)

As good a Serra is, nobody gave him a snowball's chance in the hot spot of winning. It just goes to show how unpredictable MMA is. Serra's TKO victory over GSP (who, by the way, has nothing to feel bad about and I'm sure will be back in winning form before long) was just one in a series of stunning UFC upsets.

Overall, it was a pretty good fight card.

- Breaks in between rounds are cut

- No prefight/postfight interview, except main event

- No replay of the KO... or analysis of something in slomo.

- No victory celebration from the winning fighter... everything is cut.

- Main Menu setup looks extremely cheap starting from UFC 69.

Honestly, I don't understand... usually the tendencies are, that the quality of a product gets better with time. Clearly not the case with UFC DVDs. The last DVD that has prefight/postfight interviews to my knowledge, was UFC 54, and people made a huge deal about it. Obviously whoever's in charge of DVDs, doesn't care about the feedback...

On the flipside, if you get a WWE DVD, you get the entire event front to back. Nothing is cut out. All the promos, pyros, entrances, postfight BS, everything is left in there. If you haven't watched pro wrestling in a while, it's like you're watching it LIVE. Not the case with UFC DVDs. The only incentive to buy these DVDs now, is for the prelims. From now, I'm just gonna burn the events on DVD.

UFC 69 is a great DVD to own, lots of action and some great war's that entertain throughout the fight. The main event even after watching it multiple times gives me goosebumps, its great fight card and a great DVD to own.
