I have discovered the nerd paradise known as AMAZON.COM!!!! And i have started buying Mma events on the cheap.

So far i have the following:
Ufc 47, 48, 66, 67, 76, 78, 80, 81, 85, 88, 89, 90, 93, 97, 98, 101, 102, 104, 105, 106, 107, 116, 134, 140, 146
The "100 Greatest fights"dvd
Pride Shockwave 2003-2006, Final Conflict 2005, Final Conflict absolute 2006, Total elimination 2006, Bushido 11-13, Bushido Lw tournament
And Wec Faber v. Aldo.

What events would any of you suggest adding to my set? Please add a bit of info on which fights/reasons make it worth having.

Matt Brown, Chris Lytle, Machida, and Tito getting destroyed had a lot of sway in which borderline events i chose.

I really recommend WEC 53. It blows my socks off every time I watch it

Pride Bushido 9 is probably still my favourite event of all time.

LW and WW tournaments.

The LW tournament features Gomi in his prime and some epic wars.

UFC 109

You have two members (Randy & Chael) of the MMA Mt. Rushmore destroying their opponents in such utter, complete, dominance.....a ballet of violence....it is the sensation of the nation. The number-one creation(s).

Im kinda stoked about bushido 9. Hansen, Sakurai, Gomi, etc...

Going through the process of wiki researching the events before buying, i was kind of shocked by how good Ufc 84 and 116 were. 116 had two foty type fights and 84 had an eventful fight in every single bout. I remember a Machida Palhares Reljic parlay was like 20-1

You've got to bu UFC 100! That was a spectacle!
Lesnar vs Mir-The one where Lensar punches a hole where Mir's face used to be and then goes and drinks a Coors light!, GSP vs Alves,Hendo vs Bisping- Worth it alone for this fight, Fitch vs Thiago & Akiyama vs Belcher.
No to mention Jones choking out O'Brien and that weird fight between Bonnar and Coleman!

Nice collection btw.

I would suggest all of the early ufc tournament style events. I don't know if I have been conditioned or what but I still get goosebumps when watching those events. It was like watching a no holds barred event in Mad Max's Thunderdome.

UFC 139
Shogun Hendo
Wandy Cung Le
Faber chokes out Bowles
McDonald Ko's Alex Soto

Recent card but a instant classic.





Also WEC 43 & 48

WEC 43 simply because Bendo Cerrone 1. My favorite fight of all time

48 was an insanely stacked card. Pickett/Mighty Mouse, Yahya/Mizugaki, Chad Mendes second Zuffa fight & first finish, Karalexis/Pettis, TKZ VS GARCIA 1!, Njukuani/Roller, Jorgensen/Banuelos, Gamburyan/Brown, Cerrone/Bendo 2, Aldo/Faber (EDIT: I see you already have this one. Good man. lol)

You guys are all high on past due date oregano.

Pride Final Conflict 2005 is the best event of the sport since it's creation. Thus, making it a must have for every collection.

Yeah, you can find a lot for cheap. I've had a hard time finding some so I've paid as much as $30.

Just watched 47 for the first time.

Thoughts:
Even back then Tito was vulnerable to body shots. What a satisfying finish.
They said Tiki will go down as the best fighter to never win a fight in the ufc. LOL
Hermes Franca used to be really good. The way he rolled for legs is aokiesque. I thought he beat Yves but a very solid performance by both.
Cabbage lost via tko, but on one days notice he didnt do bad at all.
Nick Diaz used to be a bit of a pretty boy. Hilariously enough. I love how all the shit talking he did was 100% accurate. Lawler needed to be humbled. Great fight.
Genki Sudo tooled Mike Brown like id assume hed tool a white belt. That guy was on another level.
Shipp v. Wiezorek was the best fight on the card. Its legendary in its flabberghasting nature.

Very solid card. 10/10 nature by those days standards. 8.5by todays.

You will enjoy it.

And every Ufc numbered event out.
It nice to watch future champs grow up through the prelims and such

Im watching Pride Shockwave 2003. At the end of the event they show footage of a bunch of fans meeting the fighters. First person i see is Val Kilmer. Seriously. Next person, Hayato Mach Sakurai who is just smiling from ear to ear watching Rampage go for a fake handshake to face slap of every single fan. One by one. Awesome.

Footnotes: Royce kicked Yoshidas ass
Giant Silva had the best performance of his career.
Rampage destroyed Minowaman like no one ever has.
Goodridge wins his retirement fight to make him 1-2 against don frye
Sakuraba had a very even fight against little nog until the last 2 minutes. Sak would have beaten Gsp

Good event. Pride commentary makes you want to listen to the announcers between fights, whereas in the ufc dvd you have to skip every second with fast doward.

Pride DVDs are great. Now these days they are hard to find
Last year finally got the pride grand prix DVDs 2002 or 2003 which had chuck lidell in the tournament
