Best season of talent. A must have!

"The idea was brilliant: pit two legendary UFC Champions competing against eachother in another aspect of Mixed Martial Arts - COACHING. The Teams are divided by divisions and weight classes for Randy Couture (The former Light-Heavyweight and Heavyweight champion and future heavyweight champion) and Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell (Reigning Light-Heavyweight Champion). Interesting team challenges decide whose team gets to pick the first fight, and so on. Great season, introducing the likes of eight of the best middleweight rising stars and eight of the best light-heavyweight Future Stars of the fast growing phenomenon that is MMA.
Team Liddell: Bobby Southworth, Sam Hoger, Forrest Griffin, Alex Schoenauer
Team Couture: Stephan Bonnar, Mike Swick, Lodune Sincaid, Jason Thacker
Team Liddell: Diego Sanchez, Josh Koscheck, Kenny Florian, Josh Rafferty
Team Couture: Nathan Quarry, Chris Leben, Alex Karalexis, Chris Sanford

Not "old school UFC" as someone said on here, but well done

"First of all, the UFC has been around for a long time. I know alot of people didnt jump on the "bandwagon" until they made a reality show, and thats fine, it was underground and many didnt know it even existed. This, however is not old school. Check out UFC 1 to see old school. No weight classes, just show up and fight. The names Gracie, Shamrock, Severn, Frey, Kimo....thats old school, not Lidell and Coutoure. Now, on to the dvd. Im not a big fan of reality tv, but UFC did a great job on the show. Its interesting to see how these guys worked toward their goal of being a pro fighter, the ups and downs of the fight game itself, and how a guy like Griffin can rise up and become a future star in the making. Unlike the people who "graduate" from American Idol, these guys actually stick around and become solid pros. I think this is a good buy for anyone who wants to see just how hard it is to become a pro fighter."

"My boyfriends addicted. He didn't have any of the Ultimate Fighters before I bought these, but he loved watching them on TV. He's a guy, they can watch fights over & over & over, it doesn't get old. I purchased season 1 thru 4 & will be getting the rest, very soon!"
A decent start to the now popular series

"This DVD for sure gets 5 stars because it is a well-packaged/designed box set and it was full of then-unknowns that have now become the faces of MMA fighting. The numerous discs do not take up a ton of space on my shelf because the box is folded/packaged well.
Now, for the show itself. It was great to see the struggles of a professional fighter in this sport (and boy do some have it hard) and also to see how much someone can improve in a sport. This series has it all, from cast backstories worked into the show, mostly exciting fights, great finale, and stellar bonuses on the extras disc.
It was painfully obvious that the producers were still trying to work out the perfect formula/format for an elimination/fighting-type tv show because sometimes they reversed rules, questioned decisions, and had lop-sided teams often needing to trade fighters.
Other than that, you really got to know the contestants, coaches, trainers, and the sport of mixed martial arts! I highly recommend getting into this series/sport and start it off right with season 1."
