Worth it for the quality and fights

"UFC's first blu ray release will be a "best of comeback" fights in which one fighter is getting beat and ends up winning in the end. 240 minutes total makes for 4 hrs worth of fights. I posted the match list below but im not really sure why fights like Jardine vs Alexander are on this because that was a generally one sided fight except for one punch. 5 of them were also released on the "Best of 2007" dvd set and only 2 of them are unavailable anywhere due to Ultimate Fight Night events not being released. I recommend this if you dont have any of these fights and are just looking for a "best of" compilation because theres really nothing new here besides that. All are great fights though and the quality will be perfect so I gave it 5 stars.

The Real Deal

"Since I'm not a cagefighter, and have never been to a mixed martial arts
competition, and have never purchased an ultimate fighting dvd before, please let me give you those disclaimers.
The purpose of my buying this dvd, aside from a lifelong interest in boxing. etc., was to get a greater understanding of this sport. My nephew is a heavyweight cagefighter in Flint, Michigan. Haven't followed his career as closely as what I would have liked, but I do know that he has won a recent "main event". Having migrated from there to here (Oklahoma City) in 1981, I try to keep in touch with the family.
I would love to tell you that my nephew has inherited his skills from me, but that would be somewhat of a stretch (you ought to see me in action!)
So, all kidding aside, this was just a great ultimate fighting dvd!
Amazon has listing this dvd at 240 minutes. The dvd lasts about 2 hours and 3 minutes of 100% action. Featured bouts:
Pete Sill vs. Scott Smith
Alessio Sakara vs. Drew McFedries
Martin Kampmann vs. Drew McFedries
Renato Sobral vs. Jason Lambert
Keith Jardine vs. Houston Alexander
Jon Fitch vs. Roan Carneirio
Colin Robinson vs. Eddie Sanchez
Paul Taylor vs. Marcus Davis
Chris Leben vs. Terry Martin
Jon Koppenhaver vs. Jared Rollins
Roger Huerta vs. Clay Guida
These are all full length bouts, althouth none of them goes to the scorecard (of 3 rounds of 5 minutes). Most don't last into the second round, but a couple come close to the distance. At least one is very bloody, which may be enough to satisfy some. You can't really tell who's
the really comebacker, till the fight is all over, which may be a very strong point of this dvd.
After having a tough day in the warehouse, I would have to say that this is an excellent way to unwind. These bouts are excellently officiated, and are strangely enough, very relaxing. I am looking forward to having an intellegint conversation with my nephew when I see him this June.

"The overall interface and fights are quite nice, exciting as well. Yet, some fights aren't in super high res as some other ones; for there were fights which didn't use to be broadcasted in HD back in the day. So the upscaled fights are really the only fights you can pick out the difference HD rez quality.
