for me it was UFC 1. didnt get to see the whole event tho... we had the old Dish, the big 8 foot one in the yard when i was in high school. our provider, with sporting event ppv's they would give you like the first 15 min free. Seeing Gerard Gordeau punch and kick Teila Tuli in the face and see his teeth flying was all i needed to see!! unfortunatly my dad was too cheap to pay for a ppv... so later events i had to call on somone with a black box to record them for me and give them to me (im pretty sure statute of limitations ran out on thos by now). But then came the Dark Era of MMA, and i kinda forgot about it.... then i was able to watch UFC 38 Hughes vs Newton 2, and i knew it was still out there but never able to see it, and i wanna say UFC 50 is when i was able to see it again and havent really missed an event since.
i have bought the first 20 UFC's on dvd (2 box sets), and im up to UFC 12, and ima probably get the others i missed on dvd, so one day ill be able to say ive seen every UFC event =D
