Cannon punch, lightning speed to the legs, and bear power are all about Don Frye, the legend of old school MMA. Today he will be the hero of the night of champions within which we remember the Ultimate Ultimate 96 tournament which took place in 1996..

Can anyone point me in the direction of some videos very similar to this one, meaning condensed (under 30 mins), yet reasonably detailed overviews of some of the earliest UFC events? I would watch them all in a heartbeat. I miss those days. I remember the first UFC I ever saw on a VHS tape the day after someone recorded the PPV. I saw Kimo vs. Royce. I thought, "That huge guy is going to kill the guy in the gi." I had a lot to learn about BJJ and fighting in general. But I was hooked from that point on.

All men that fought are crazy bastards. Full on nut jobs. Their lives are drowned in heat, revenge, lust and darkness. I enjoy watching but will never become.

I remember those fights back then. I also remember seeing Tank lose his first fight. It was against a smaller opponent who I can't remember, but the guy was fast and stayed just out of Tanks reach as Tank threw haymaker after haymaker. Tank lasted about one minute before getting tired and that's when the other guy moved in and took Tank down. The fight only lasted just a few minutes.

that was Tank in a nutshell. . 100% all out from the start and using that to overwhelm his opponent, but of course he didn't have the stamina to last a much longer match which is why he always went full speed.

The fights before the broadcast was not trying to manipulate the tournament. The fights before the broadcast was for alternates. In the event a fighter in the main tournament could not continue an alternate would step in. Which actually happened in a couple of cases that night.
