Movie Reviews

Finally UFC DVD's are back!!!!!!!
B. Belmonte | Southern California | 08/25/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"So yeah this event was so-so but at least the DVD's are back to the way they were. I won't post the fights cos other reviews already have them. ALL fights are on one DVD while the other has the Countdown show, Backstage bonus, and the weigh-in show. Plus it has all the intro's to the fights and all the Rogan interviews post fights. Keep em coming like this and I'll be fine. Pre and post press conference would be nice too. Enjoy."
Rashad Evans Vs. Lyoto Machida UFC 98

"Ufc 98 was a good event , it wasnt really a stacked card , but , we got to see Rashad Defend his belt for the first time against the Dangerous Karate Master Lyoto Machida, everyone was wondering if rashad could adapt to machida's style and finally give him a loss.
Also we finally see a matchup years in the making , Matt Hughes Vs. Matt Serra - Finally these 2 go at it , lots of talking took place before the match and it was really hyped up. Matt hughes wanted to shut serra up !

Overall the event wasnt too exciting , it did have alot of matches.
The Hughes and Serra Fight was rather boring for me, but alot of people were expecting what happened.

The Main Event Lyoto vs Evans was awesome ! it lived up to all the hype , i was just waiting for the counters and was trying to see if rashad could stop lyoto's unique style , it builds up and then boom fireworks , i wont ruin it but it doesnt go the distance !"
Light Heavyweight Championship, and HUGE Grudge Match!

"After his 1st non-win, a DRAW, against Tito Ortiz, Rashad won a split decision over TUF #3 winner, Michael Bisping, in UFC 78, and he remained undefeated. Finally in UFC 88, it was time for a test, and that test was Chuck Liddell. And mid-way through the 2nd round, Rashad not only knocked out The Iceman, he knocked him out COLD! And after that, it was his turn to fight for the title, still undefeated, against the original Ultimate Fighter, Forrest Griffin. And after having the first two rounds taken away from him, Rashad Evans found his opening, got his TKO, and his Light Heavyweight belt. Now, who to defend it against? Well, after a 1st round KO of Thiago Silva, fellow undefeated Lyoto Machida would get that honor. Sam Hoger, David Heath, Kazuhiro Nakamura, Sokoudjou, and Tito Ortiz were all the names that have stepped into the octagon with Lyoto Machida. Not ONE had yet to even win a single round against the karate master. And Machida's goal was to simply win this fight and be the new Light Heavyweight champion. Rashad Evans would say that he didn't worry about what Machida was doing, Machida should worry about what he's doing, and he was going to knock Machida out! That was the Main Event for UFC 98.

The Co-Main Event was a heated grudge match that had been seething since season 6 on The Ultimate Fighter. Matt Hughes and Matt Serra both have the exact same thoughts. They don't like each other, and they just want to hit each other! Enough said.

There are 10 fights on this DVD, and they actually included pre-fight and post interviews, with the exception of one. I will list the fights below.

Dave Kaplan vs. George Roop: After TUF 10, both of these guys were on the Finale card. Kaplan fought a FIGHT OF THE NIGHT performance on the losing end to Junie Browning. Roop fought a hard fought battle, only to lose a split decision to Shane Nelson. This would be a good scrap that earns a split decision for the winner.

Yoshiyuki Yoshida vs. Brandon Wolff: Both of these guys had nightmare performances when they fought for the troops. One of them gets some sweet redemption with a quick submission in the 1st.

Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Andre Gusmao: Hard cranking kimuras and a tough attitude bring these two together. But one shows the other the meaning of KO power, and in the 1st round!

Phillipe Nover vs. Kyle Bradley: Well, despite a questionable stoppage just a minute into the fight, the winner doesn't offer much apology. He won, and that was good enough for him. And I suppose, there's nothing anybody can do about it.

Pat Barry vs. Tim Hague: Brutal slugger is ready to offer some brutal punches and kicks for newcomer Tim Hague. THE TRASHING MACHINE just might have other ideas. One idea becomes a reality in the 1st round with a great finish!

Brock Larson vs. Mike Pyle: Props to Mike pyle for taking this on a day's notice for Chris Wilson. Is he ready for Larson? A submission in the 1st is the answer to that question!

Sean Sherk vs. Frank Edgar: I was tickled to death with this fight, and I watch it with a big smile every time I do! Unanimous decision, too bad for the loser!!

Chael Sonnen vs. Dan Miller: After his last performance, Dan Miller is pretty certain he knows Sonnen's weakness. But this is a fight fought with wit, and a unanimous decision is awarded for the effort.

Drew McFedries vs. Xavier Foupa-Pokam: POP-POP-POP...POW!!! Under 40 seconds and you have your KO of the night!!!

Matt Hughes vs. Matt Serra: Some say this could've gone either way. Either way, here's your grudge match, that goes to a unanimous decision.

Rashad Evans vs. Lyoto Machida: Both came in undefeated, one got handled the whole way through, and got KO'd in the 2nd round. People will be watching this champion and wondering who can take him out!

Lots of good stuff on this double DVD. Everything we liked that we thought had been taken away. I enjoyed this the whole way through. The Countdown was awesome as well! ENJOY!!"
