I think it was around 2005 or something like that. I heard about this UFC and downloaded Ultimate Knockouts volume 1 ( I live in Finland, we don't have Spike or TUF in here). I thought this UFC was somekinda event that took place like once a year or something. I liked it alot, but since I didn't know much about it, I just kinda forgot it.

Year later, right around Couture vs Liddell 3, I watched the Ultimate Knockouts again. This time I wanted to know more and visited the UFC website. I had also seen Randy Couture vs Halme fight (Halme is a finnish dude) and back then I was pretty amazed that some could actually beat Halme. And I regonized Randy's face from the UFC website and tought that I gotta see more of this guy.

That fight was boring, but a tremendous win for Shamrock... Gracie left the UFC after that fight and Shamrock started his title run.
