"September 9, 1994
The UFC got progressively more professional with each event. UFC 3 - "The American Dream" was decent, but the main event was quite uninteresting, as an alternate had to step in for the final fight. The true talent suffered injuries in victory that prevented them from meeting in the finals (Defending 2-time champion Royce Gracie & shoot-fighter Ken Shamrock).
We do, however, get our first look at Kimo Leopoldo. He is indeed a strange and eccentric character - and he gives Gracie his best fight in UFC competition to that point.
Aside from this standout matchup, there is some decent action and some rather humorous characters. It took some fighters a while to realize that they weren't in the WWF and that they didn't need a gimmick in order to compete - but as I've said, the UFC was still growing and taking form.
This DVD is worth owning for the history..."

"One of the most underated toughest octagon fighters was Keith The Buzz Saw Hackney, this gives you a glimpse into his character and power with his first dismantling of a 400 pound beast from the east (n.y.) He never won the whole thing, but ufc 3&4 which gives you a classic battle between him and the greasest ever Mr.Gracie is well worth the price of admission, i can't wait to get these classics on DVD."
Good-but not great

"Of the four "UFC Classic" dvd's released to date, this is the only one that I can't rate 5 stars. With the two biggest names out due to injury (Gracie & Shamrock) we are left with alternates. Yes, they do step in and fight, but they are not the caliber of those injured.
This is still an entertaining DVD, but without the big names, it isn't quite up to par with the others in the series.
Keith Hackney is a fun fighter to watch (whatever happened to him anyway?) and Kimo's fight with Royce was Gracie's toughest bout of the first 3 UFC's.
If you're a new fan, try one of the other DVD's first to appreciate the talent of Gracie and Shamrock. But if you're already a fan, this is well worth buying."
Can't wait for this one!!!

"For the first time I am writing a review of a DVD before its release. I am very excited about the release of this event on DVD because it was the first UFC event that I ever watched. Out of all of the classic UFC shows early on, this one is my favorite. The stage was set with 650+ pound Manny Yarborough (Sumo) taking on 200 pound Keith Hackney (Karate). Needless to say I was INSTANTLY hooked to this sport.
The entire card was interesting (with the exception of the main event). Royce Gracie had what was easily his most exciting fight in the octagon when he took on a rather spooky looking Kimo. Man, this is a wonderful bit of history to own. Buy this as soon as it hits the store shelves!!"
