If you like brutal or bloody fights, this DVD is for you

"It made me laugh when I heard the jackass Bill O'Reilly complaining about how brutal the current state-regulated MMA is, calling these fights "showcases of brutality". I guess he never saw the old Vale Tudo videos or even the old UFC. There are only two rules in Vale Tudo, no biting and no eyegouging, everything else is legal, including elbows, soccer kicks, stomps, and knees to the head of a grounded opponent, groin strikes, you name it. And they don't stop a fight because of a cut either. And they go one full 30 minute round. Lots of good fights, my only complaint being that some of them were dragged out a little too long, especially the Chuck Liddell x Pele fight. The Wanderlei x Van Arsdale fight was a relatively quick beatdown. Buy this DVD if you're a fan of old school no holds bar fighting, with MMA everywhere becoming a legitimized sport with rules and regulations, you might never be able to see stuff like this ever again."
VTC...Liddell & Silva

"Never knew Chuck competed in VTC in 1998. VTC, (Vale Tudo Championship) in Brazil. Bare knuckle & brutal. (They only pause the fight to wipe the blood off so the fighters can continue)! Pure guts. I bet that's when Chuck wanted a piece of Wanderlie way back then. I gave this 4 stars because it's enduring, but interesting. I would recommend this DVD to true MMA fans as part of a collector's item."
