View Full Version : Youtube: UFC Select

9/16/2013 9:11pm,
Zuffa launched UFC Select on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/UFCselect), a while back. It's been popping up in my "suggested for," stuff for a couple of weeks, and last week I started my 14-day free trial.

The pros:
1) Inexpensive. at USD $5.99/month, the price is tough to beat
2) Action, action, action. I guess the "select," part is just that - outside of the TUF vids, pretty much every fight is a bang-fest with a great KO or a devastating submission.
3) Lots of great old Pride fights - it's amazing to watch some of these 10-year old or older MMA fights, particularly because the commentary is so much better, these days (now that Joe Rogan has a BJJ black belt and sorta-kinda knows what he's talking about).
4) Playlists - just click a list and watch commercial-free uninterrupted TUF, Pride, UFC for as long as you can stay awake.
5) Pretty much a recap of #2, but there are some really awesome fights that don't get to see much of during regular UFC programming - some really great lightweight, featherweight, even flyweight matches in here.
6) If you can manage to watch all the vids in the trial period, it's free!!!11!1

The cons:
1) Lack of content. I'm about a week in, and I've watched several fights every night. The end is nigh - there have only been a handful of new fights uploaded since I started my trial. I don't think I'll make it through my first paid month before I run out of videos (136 as of this writing).
2) Youtube only allows this on your gmail-gplus-linked identity.

Well, that's about it. If nothing else, it's enough to tide me over until the next seasons of Breaking Bad and Borgia find their way onto Netflix.
