Just picked up the DVDs today. I had them on VHS but haven't watched them in years because, well... they're on VHS. "The King Of the Streets" cut the "Polar Bear" down. Some of the most vicious leg kicks I have ever seen. It's kind of funny watching Mark Hall, Harold Howard, Remco Radoel and the likes. I did get to see Oleg "The Russian Bear" Taktarov foght Shammy.

I like Blatnik, but "The Dragon" had to go. Beck wasn't bad. Would ask questions of technique to Blatnik and "The Dragon" who really had no idea at the time what was happening and they would try to say something and the fighter would do the complete opposite to escape. My, how things have evolved

Those elbows making Herrera's head flop were a scary sort of comedy

Gotta love old school UFC. My only complaint is watching guys that have absolutely no idea what they're doing, as its a bit frustrating watching every single guy get taken down, mounted, then roll right into a RNC. At least they were still bare knuckle though.
