The old UFC days was definately exciting. I remember watching every single UFC show from the first. Belfort was my favorite. His fight against tank and wandy was one of the his best. He showcased what he was known for, speed and fierce. His hand speed was just awesome.

Hes alright, I sort of think he didn't deserve that title shot against Smith after being killed against Belfort.

And the fight against Rizzo was amazing, he got knocked down about five times, Rizzo is boring but that fight had me on my feet!

Some of the best submissions ever occured in old school UFC, the 2001 era UFC 30-39. Ricardo Almeida .vs. Eugene Jackson, best ever triangle choke in the UFC. Matt Serra .vs. Kelly Dullanty was great. And how about Newton squeezing the crap out of Miletichs head?

I can never stop talking about the old school UFC, I will make this thread survive.

I'm not getting the "Rizzo is boring" comment. Rizzo was a very fun fighter to watch in his prime. Sickening leg kicks, and really good striking. I will say that an unmotivated Rizzo is frustrating to watch.

Frank Shamrock vs Igor Zinoviev=Sickest slam I have ever seen. Frank just drilled poor Igor to the mat, right on the back of his head & neck. I love Frank Shamrock.....in a totally hetero way of course.

Rizzo was sometimes boring. I didn't like his fights after UFC 34. His fight with Gan McGee, well a little exciting but he was picked apart. His fight with Matyushenko made me fall asleep. His rematch with Telligman was a great bout actually, favourite match from UFC 43 besides Couture .vs. Liddell. But his final match in the UFC, don't like to talk about .

I take those words back, hes an exciting fighter.

How about Patrick "Prince Of Bel Air Hair" Smith . Best fighter ever.

Do me a favor and stop referring to yourself in the 3rd person. You're username is "Redwings7777", not "Rush".

Definitely. Pat Smith was like the Mark Hunt of his time. Good standing, and absolutely clueless on the ground. Yes, Smith rocking the Kid N Play eraser head hairstyle did indeed rule. His decimation of Scott Morris is easily one of the most violent beatings I have seen.

Jon Hess needs more love as well. Hess was all "Screw this Jiu Jitsu shit! It's all about SAFTA, dawgz!". Hess punched like a mentally challenged Chris Leben.

I absolutely dug Severn's promo's as well. So wooden, so hilarious, so....awesome.

Stop referring to yourself in third person as "Rush". Very annoying and deceptive, makes me think this is a thread about GSP's opinions instead of some armchair expert.
Yeah, I agree. For a while there I thought I was reading a blog by GSP...very misleading.

I loved Pat Smiths UFC 1 promo, so cocky it was funny. I also loved his guillotine submissions and the KO over Scott Morris. My favourite KO of all time.

How about Hackneys promo at UFC 4 I believe. Hilarious. He punched the bag then Jim Brown is like "that is cement!" lol hilarious. He was crazy Hackney, wouldn't stop hitting his opponents head, reminded me of a hockey fighter.

And the mullet Harold Howard, where did he get that black belt from?

the old fights are definitely great and more people need to get in and watch em. they are very important to the sport and are really entertaining fights to watch. but if anybody saw the bonnar v griffin fight...i think they are locked in to watching modern day fights. and i honestly can't blame them. what a brawl
