UFC 20th ANNIVERSARY
I can tell you that things changed for the worse.
Twenty years ago, it was the first ever UFC. UFC was The Big Thing. No rules, no gloves, no shoes, no rounds, no time-limit, no weight categories, no drug testing, nothing stupid and crappy. Just two warriors colliding in the Octagon. It was fighting at his purest form. It was great!
3 ways to win
In an 8-man elimination 1-night tournament. So to win the UFC Championship, the 6'1", 175-lb Royce Gracie needed to outlast 3 bigger and stronger fighters in order to get the title.
Fighting 3 times in the same night!!
Todays UFC fighters hardly fought three times a year!!!
Royce Gracie won 3 UFC Championships that way.
Royce Gracie's standard of excellence will never be equalled.
|Royce Gracie 3-time UFC champion (UFC 1, 2 &4)|
UFC record: 11-0
ROYCE GRACIE IS THE BEST UFC FIGHTER OF ALL TIME!!!

THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (UFC 1: The Beginning)
Some faggots said that the first original UFC were bad. That it wasn't a pure sport at the beginning???? What is purest than a no rules fight?? You can't get any purest sport than this! This is martial arts, buddy! This is combat sport!
Now the UFC is pure faggotry. Thankx to senile shithead John McGay. Maybe todays fighters are better prepared now. But what was the most natural form of combat sport (anything goes) have become a silly overuled sport. Pointless weight classes?? Rounds?? Stand-up rules?? Judge decision?? Dress code?? Drug testing??? Unfrequent matches??? Everything is lame and uniform. Every fighter looks the same. UFC fighters are all identical clones with identical look, identical physique and identical fighting style. BOOOORING!!!
No need to say that I don't give a fuck anymore about the UFC. Pride and K-1 were the only survivors of the great tradition of Combat Sport/Martial Art. But where are they today? To they still exist?? Isn't the UFC monopoly that strangeled them into death??
BUT at least today, 20 years later, UFC is a well-oiled mainstream lucrative business generating several millions of dollars at each of his events. Nonetheless, I prefer his underground roots. A lot better, no fuckin' rules, more entertaining, a greater diversity of fighters (look, style, physique, etc).
