UFC 100 – Making History (Anchor Bay DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C+



The Ultimate Fighting Championship has grown a good bit since we first covered the UFC on DVD many years ago, as this link will show:





Now, by being a success and continuously reinvesting into the, the franchise has moved into High Definition and become a staple in Las Vegas as it challenges boxing as the most popular sport around (and around there).



This new DVD set is split into two sections:


Disc 1 – Main Card


Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir

Georges St.-Pierre vs. Thiago Alves

Jon Fitch vs. Paulo Thiago

Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping

Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Alan Belcher



Disc 2 – Preliminary Fights


Mark Coleman vs. Stephan Bonnar

Mac Danzig vs. Jim Miller

Jon Jones vs. Jake O’Brien

Dong Hyun Kim vs. TJ Grant

CB Dollaway vs. Tom Lawlor

Matt Grice vs. Shannon Gugerty



Though the production has become more polished, the fights are as rough and brutal as ever and a few competing franchises have tried to cut in, but the UFC is ahead of them all and as a result, they can get the best such fighters around.  I have enjoyed seeing this sport grow and hold together better than most of late.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a little soft, but is not bad for what is likely a 1080i HD shoot with good color and a cleaner presentation that earlier analog-based releases, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is sufficient for the fight and play-by-play hosting.  Extras include a behind the scenes featurettes and Countdown To UFC 100 piece.
