So I rewatched Anderson Marquardt, Hendo Rampage, and Hendo vs Anderson and I forgot how different these guys used to fight.

I have forgotten how technical these fights were and especially in the Anderson Hendo I had never noticed some things, like Silva rocking Hendo and overwhelming him standing. The fight was really much less competitive than I remember and the Hendo Rampage fight was ridiculously more competitive than I remember.

Anyone else watch old fights and realize youve forgotten big things?

49. One of my favourite ufc cards of all time.

I rewatch old fights all the time. I've got Pride 17 loaded, ready to watch when I get some spare time.

Nice. I just came back to say 47 as well. Such a good card. Liddell smashing Tito, Diaz upsetting Lawler in an epic slugfest, Arlovski smacking around Cabbage, Lytle with a school yard choke and several other exciting fights. Only one decision on the card and it was an entertaining one.

80 is really good as well. B.J. Penn at his finest. I'm going to have to mention 92 as well. The Ultimate 2008.

So many great cards over the years. Best thing about it the event DVDs are now pretty cheap.

I've watched some cards from looong ago and realized I remember them much differently, but I think that's due mainly to having seen so many fights over the years, I may have had a different idea on judging back then.

Usually when I go back to watch old fights I pick a fighter and go through their fights in order to see the fighter progression, something you don't get as much watching full events, not to say watching full old events isn't a blast.

I'm not much for watching sporting events after I've already seen them. Hell, I can't really stand to watch if I *didn't* see it live but already know the outcome.

The element of the unknown while watching an event/fight live is part of the attraction for me.

I'm the same way, but I wish I recorded Game 6 of last year's World Series

I really do get this but some fights are just a technical or heart filled blast. Its hard watching really old UFC events is hard because the talent back then was just so much less not to mention the cheesy production.

Watching old Pride events however is something different.

I do think its fun to go back and remember things punch for punch in all fightsports though.

I love watching old fights and old movies which I haven't seen in a while. I especially love it if I'm watching it with someone who hasn't seen them. I become sort of the third commentator while spilling my expertise as I dissect each scene or exchange between fighters. I get a boner like how my English teacher used to get his when he read us Shakespear.

Every few years I will go back to zuffa start and rewatch the fights.

My views do change. Giving too much credit or too less credit for fights

A big plunder example would be Ufc 76 knockout

Two best fights for me was Fitch vs sanchez and lidell vs Jardine

Now I would scratch Fitch vs sanchez and add griffin vs shogun
