    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.

  2. This set features many classic fights and is a worthy addition to any fight fans library, but is mainly targeted towards the non-hardcore 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, Spike listed X number of fights 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 fight for rival promotions. Instead they only included bouts which shows their former big draws lose to their current fighters (Tito Ortiz & Nick Diaz) or just pretend others don’t exist (Frank Shamrock, Andrei Arlovski, Josh Barnet, etc.) 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). It’s a travesty that his title defense against Tito Ortiz is not included. The fight is widely regarded as the greatest fight of 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.

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

    Frank Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz – UFC 22

    Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz 1 – UFC 40

    Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler – UFC 47

    Frank Shamrock vs. Kevin Jackson – UFC Ultimate Japan

    Tito Ortiz vs. Evan Tanner – UFC 30

    Yves Edwards vs. Josh Thomson – UFC 49

    Marco Ruas vs. Paul Varelens – UFC 7

    Pedro Rizzo vs. Josh Barnett – UFC 30

    Josh Barnett vs. Randy Couture – UFC 36

    Ken Shamrock vs. Dan Severn 1 – UFC 6

    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.

  3. 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.

    These fights are shown in their entirety,these are not just the little crappy hi-lights shown on spike-tv. I bought this yesterday when it came out and it was on sell at BestBuy for $44.99.

    Now,about the fights themselves. They are the full fights! About the fight selection though…there are definetley some misses like some of Frank Shmarocks fights, Tito Ortiz vs Ken Shamrock 1,Wanderlei Silva vs Rich Franklin,Shogun vs Mark Coleman 2(because these are supposed to go UFC 100 right,soo 1-99?)and several others. A lot of these fights are on Ultimate Knockouts and compilations like the best of 2007 and the best of 2008 dvd sets. I know that these fights were “voted” on but still there are some that could be switched.

    It is an awesome set for 45 bucks, so get it now while it’s on sell. One more thing,some fights on here on shown in even more “wide” wide screen, so depending on your dvd player and or t.v., some of them will have a little smaller picture but it does not affect the fights if you have a big enough tv i guess…the fights that they did this on have superb picture quality so it’s all good for 45 bucks. It’s not on ALL the fights, just some of them.

    Despite Amazon’s release date of December, Best Buy had it in stores 11/10. I am just now finishing up the first disc and have enjoyed it immensely. Even though I have just about all of the UFC DVD releases, this is great to throw in the player and see “greatest hits” fights IN THEIR ENTIRETY. It is a 6 disc release with the fights spread pretty evenly over the discs, except disc 6. This has the top 6 fights as well as the Spike 5 part series. (I guess this would be a spead up version? – Haven’t gotten there yet.) Anyways, pick it up at Best Buy for 54.99 while you can (their sticker price is 79.99 – sale may end Saturday???)
