"Well, After being lost in the shuffle for well over a year because of a distribution problem/change over and only being released on a extremely limited run (through mail order DVD clubs) UFC 57: Liddell v. Couture 3 has finally seen the light of day and packed together w/ UFC 43 & 52. They call it Liddell vs. Couture: The Trilogy Box Set (Digipak)
UFC 57 Liddell v. Couture 3 is 2 discs. The 1st disc has the entire event, except for the walk in's, though liddell/couture are shown. The 2nd disc has a 20 minute liddell/couture behind the scenes feature that follows both fighters around before and after their classic 3rd encounter. It also has a 7 minute return of frank mir feature. Nothing extremely important, I kinda wish they added more to the 4th disc, they definitely had enough room to do so.
UFC 43 & UFC 52 are the exact same discs from there previous releases.
Definately worth it if you dont have the 3 already!

"Don't let the 1 star reviews fool you. They already had one or two of the 3 events that this set includes. The third one is not available anywhere(except ebay) so this set is worth it if you dont have any of the three. This is a great trilogy set, not only because of the Couture vs Liddell matches, but because of the whole events of all 3. UFC 52 is by far one of the best UFC events I have even seen. Very much worth it!

"Why Dana White is feeling the need to beat up my wallet like it's in an MMA match is beyond me. I suppose if I didn't own every UFC I would be glad and this would be a deal but, since I do already have two copies of UFC 43 both in boxset and on its own, I really don't need another. They should have packaged this fight as a standalone as well. Besides, from a moronic standpoint I enjoy looking with pride down my dvd rack at all of my UFC's yellow/ bold print and numbers in sequential order! Yeah, I have issues but alas, you know I had to bend on buying this! The bonus material is kinda lame as is the packaging hence my 2 star rating but as far as the fight goes...great 5 stars to the class of Randy! Glad he's back after the loss and champion again! If you're new to MMA, buy it...buy everything!!! Check out Pride and WEC as well."
