    UFC 2 has a special place in my heart as it was the first UFC I ever saw. I distinctly remember reading about UFC back in the early 1990s in a Finnish newspaper. It was one of those "oh dear lord human cock fighting" -ones, but I was maybe 13 and to me it was the stuff of dreams. A free tournament from martial artists of different styles to see who's style was the best? AWESOME.

    Unfortunately, since Internet was a joke when it comes to moving video back then and my home town is far away from everything it wasn't until 2000 I finally saw my first UFC tournament, the second one. Love at first sight.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    UFC 52: Liddell v. Couture 2

    Only 2 decisions, Van Arsdale v. John Marsh and GSP v. Mayhem (which was fun as hell to watch) and my favorite fight of all time, Hughes v. Trigg 2. Just an amazing event from start to finish.

    I'll have to UFC 4. It was a climatic end to Royce's tournament run and had some really memorable and competitive fights. Plus, Melton Bowen is pretty much my favorite MMA fighter of all time.

    My favorite has to be UFC 83. Had GSP viciously take back his title from Matt Serra and the most hilarious fight between Nate Quarry and Calib Starnes.

    The first UFC I saw was the one with Couture facing Tito for the first time - all the web boards were alight with talk about how Tito was a completely dominant champion and how he would demolish this pathetic geriatric. What followed was a complete and total humiliating assbeating by Uncle Randy to the much younger Ortiz that broke his mystique forever and cemented Couture's status as one of the greatest fighters ever to set foot in a multi-sided enclosure. That main event won the UFC a new follower and Randy a new fan.

    I think in his first appearance in UFC 6 he only weighed 260 lbs, although I've heard that they didn't actually use a scale in some of those early events. Around UFC 11 he injured his knee and ballooned up to about 298 lbs, but managed to work some of it off before UU '96.

    Incidentally, Abbott's first opponent, John Matua, was said to have weighed upwards of 400lbs throughout his career. Would you believe that he actually came from that vicious KO to fight again?

    Like most "favorite" lists, it's hard for me to pick just one. But, based on the number of times I've rewatched it, I'd say UFC 82: Silva vs. Franklin 2. I think that was the point when the magic of Anderson started to become apparent, where he transformed from Muay Thai Wrecking Machine into Windwalking Ninja.

    I agree with this man. I guess that one has special noob attracting magic.

    I think it was because Matt Serra was a massive dick.

    UFC Fight Night 18 also has a special place in my heart because of the Kampmann/Condit fight.

    Love all the first ones.

    Just for the sheer physical mess and complete mystery factor.

    UFC 1. It brought us "why is that guy quitting? The skinny Brazilian didn't even hit him."
