"Though this follows UFC Classics 7 Buffalo, they skipped over the Ultimate Ultimate which you will hear mentioned in the broadcast. This was billed as the David vs Goliath card. Basically it featured guys around 200 lbs facing off against men 300 lbs or larger. It was an interesting card, with a few knockouts that you still see today in highlight clips. It features the superfight between Shamrock and Kimo, which was not a let down like the previous superfight. The card also is the introduction of Don Frye and Gary Goodridge to the MMA world. 2 guys still competing today. All in all, this is a good buy for someone looking for the genesis of the sport."
ONE OF MY FAV'S FROM THE EARLY DAYS

DAVID VS GOLIATH
This was one of my favorites back in the day and still is to this day, I love the David vs Goliath idea.
1.DON FRYE VS THOMAS RAMIREZ-Don Frye shows exactly why they call him The Predator in this fight. This fight lasts only seconds as The Predator Don Frye lays the Goliath out with some great strikes. Excellent quick fight but very very fast.5/5
2.JOE MOREIRA VS PAUL VARELANS-this fight lasts the entire 10 minutes which very much the opposite of the last match. Also unlike the last fight the Goliath won this via unanimous decision, Varelans. The fight was very close and is actually not boring in my opinion.4/5
3.JERRY BOHLANDER VS SCOTT FERROZZO-Ferrozzo the Goliath in this fight starts things off nicely and dominates the lion den's fighter. Jerry tries to lock in a guillotine choke but is thrown to the floor eventually. The fight gets restarted a couple of times but then with less than a minute left Jerry finally sinks that choke and takes it for the Davids.4.5/5
4.PAUL HERRA VS GARY GOODRIDGE-maybe even shorter than Don Frye's fight but Big Daddy and Goliath of the fight Gary destroys Paul with one of the most vicious knock outs ever. You have to see this one right here.5/5
5. DON FRYE VS SAM ADKINS- Sam Adkins replaces Varelans due to him being injured, so here we go with the first semi final fight. Still it does not matter as Frye makes his way through this go almost as fast as the last. He takes him down and just demolishes him with some great ground and pound. Another great showing fro Frye in this one.5/5
6. JERRY BOHLANDER vs GARY GOODRIDGE-this is an excellent fight right here as it truly is a back and forth battle. Gary starts really strong and gets him down but after a while Jerry hits a nice sweep and gets the mount and pounds away. But Gary eventually comes out on top as in position and with the win.5/5
7.KEN SHAMROCK VS KIMO-excellent fight right here that shows why Ken is the World's most dangerous man. Ken is on top for a while on this one looking for the mount. Once he finally gets it Kimo sweeps him and takes the top. But Ken being the deadly submission fighter he is he rolls into a beautiful knee bar. Great fight right here. This fight puts into place the rematch between Ken and Dan Severn who Ken beat the last time.5/5
8.DON FRYE VS GARY GOODRIDGE-the finals of the David vs Goliath ends with a David vs Goliath fight. A very exciting fight takes place in the finals as these two really do battle. Gary slams him around and goes for big strikes while Don is more precise with his punches and ends up making big Daddy tap to strikes. There is a lot of exciting moments in this one.5/5
This was one of my favorites from the original UFC days, I absolutely loved the David vs Goliath idea. I recommend buying this one right away.
