    For some old school classics:

    UFC 3 (Three words.... Harold Clarence Howard!)

    UFC 4 (for Hackney vs Joe Son)

    UFC 17 (Coleman vs Williams)

    UFC 22 (Frank Shamrock vs Ortiz)

    UFC 30 (Barnett vs Rizzo)

    UFC 31 (Rizzo vs Couture, Serra vs Carter)

    UFC 34 (Hughes vs Newton, Penn vs Uno)

    Brad's covered most of the good recent cards. I'd add UFC 95 to the list.... had some great finishes and fights on it.

    UFC 1 definitely so you can see what the fuss is all about,
    UFC 6 for the entrance of Tank Abbott
    UFC 22 for Tito v Frank Shamrock
    UFC 116, great card with some sick fights
    UFC 140, some brutal finishes on this
    UFC 101, some great fights

    That's off the top of my head. And don't bother with UFC V, just trust me, don't bother!

    I'd recommend watching Griffen Vs Bonnar in the Ultimate Fighter season 1 finale.

    Great, great fight!

    Silva/Sonnen I have on dvd. Some of the fights aren't much chop, but the main event, and the Struve fight on the undercard are great

    There is a lack of hype around here for Silva - Sonnen 2

    Prob one of the best smash ups/technical fight (that i've seen) was Hendo v Shogun...such a brutal match that one...
