Whenever you put together a set, and include the word "best" in the title, there's always going to be room for debate regarding the included content. Ultimately, this is a decent selection of fights from 2008. Even though I had already seen all of the featured fights, it somehow all seemed fresh again. Well, at least for awhile. The main feature does an adequate job of focusing on certain obvious fighters, and it generally flows pretty well. One surprise was the inclusion of the Mir/Nogueira fight on Disc 1, which wasn't listed on the insert. Extra fights are always good! The Top 5 Knockouts and Top 5 Submissions were nice extras as well. My only slight complaint, well, make that a suggestion, is the UFC: Behind The Scenes extra. Don't get me wrong, I like the footage. I think that it could have been removed as an extra though, and instead, worked into the main feature. In the opening of the DVD, some of the highlighted fights are briefly discussed. As you go through the DVD, many of those fights are shown in their entirety and analyzed. After you get through it all, the Behind The Scenes extra literally goes through chosen fights AGAIN, with further analysis from different angles and relevant personalities. It seemed to me that all of the exclusive footage could have been worked in around each of the full-length fights, and once it was over, move on to the next topic. By the time it was all over, I felt like I had been in a fight myself, being beaten over the head with the same material. In the end, I really did enjoy the set though. It wasn't the knockout that it could've been (per the above listed), but ultimately a hard-fought decision victory."
