Best UFC Ever

"Great matches all around the best was the Undisputed Lightheavywight Championship of the World between Tito Ortiz and Randy Courtire. Great match all on ground grappling and no tap out early. They went the distance of 5 rounds. Their was no stoppage like their usually is. Referre John McCarthy was not an issue in this match. Randy Courtire was dominating all the way through the match and Tito Ortiz did not get off the blocks during the matchup at all. Courtire has a great wrestling background used it very well because of his great stamina the man is 40 years of age and in great shape. Ortiz got the living crap beat out of him and could do nothing about it. After the match was over Ortiz was pissed and knew he had lost the match up in a Unanomuis decision because all the judges scored the match to Courtire 50-49. Ortiz cryed like a baby when he lost and he diserved to cry because he sucked throught the match."
Another excellent UFC

"The Natural" is our hero

"Date: September 26, 2003
Location: Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada
This is another exciting and entertaining UFC event. One of the best fight cards in recent years, in fact. We get to see some good matchups and some rising stars in the UFC. Rich Franklin, called "the next big thing" in the middleweight division, fights Edwin Dewees. Dewees, no doubt, came to fight on this night, but Franklin is simply overwhelming.
David "The Crow" Louiseau then faces Jorge Rivera. Louiseau came from Canada with much hype behind him and he had been making a name for himself here - but this fight goes the distance, as the fighters seem to be quite evenly skilled. It's right down to the wire at the decision.
Next was the battle of the giants. Tim Sylvia, at 6'8 took on Gan McGee, at 6'10. These were the two largest men ever to fight for the UFC heavyweight championship. People were expecting a clash of the titans, but the fight does not quite deliver in terms of longevity. It all ends pretty quickly.
On the subject of heavyweights, you've got to mention the rising star, Andrei Arlovski. Here he fights veteran Vladimir Matyushenko. Arlovski clearly has dominating striking ability, speed and power. He makes a serious case for a title shot. He has very impressive skills and he appears to be very well-rounded. This is a heavyweight that moves like a lightweight... something we don't get to see all that often.
In the main event of the evening, after a night already packed with great fights, reigning champion Tito Ortiz takes on interim champion, Randy Couture. When Ortiz stepped away, Couture battled and defeated Chuck Liddell, the contender Ortiz had refused to fight, for whatever reason. On this night, Couture shows that his championship is indeed for real. He continually takes Ortiz down almost completely at will and batters him straight through the fight. He gives Tito a strong taste of his own medicine, treating him exactly as Tito has treated so many of his past opponents- taking them down and using the ground & pound effectively. Randy Couture is a truly inspirational athlete and MMA figure. The fans unanimously predict Ortiz will win this fight - yet by the end of the bout, the crowd cheers "Randy, Randy...". The fight is perfectly capped in the last round. Randy has Tito pinned upside-down in the corner, Tito is trying to escape or apply an ankle hook and Randy spanks him on the @ss as if to say "I'm not giving this up yet... I'm not passing any torch to you tonight"... Beautiful!
There are some great behind-the-scenes bonus features included on the DVD. Highly recommended!"
ONLY ONE CAN BE UNDISPUTED

"This is was a very memorable UFC, there were about 3 good matchups that will keep your eyes glued to the screen. The championship battle between Tito and Couture was well-worth it, they both back up the hype and brought it.
Franklin, Loiseau, Arlovski, Sylvia, Tito, and Couture are the big names on this card... overall it was a good, solid DVD!"
