Wow! That is the only thing that comes out of my mouth when I see this collection, UFC: Ultimate Fight Collection 2012. If you are any sort of UFC fan, then this is the box set you must own! It includes 50 hours of footage plus 75 fights not previously available on DVD. When they say ‘Ultimate Fight Collection’ they are not kidding. The box the set comes in to begin with is beautiful! Check it out:
Aside from the beautiful packaging, the set includes 20 discs covering fight cards from UFC 132 to UFC 147. It doesn’t include every fight from those cards but just the best of the best adding up to a whopping 200 total featured fights! Seriously, if you are a reading this and you aren’t a fan of the UFC but you know someone that is, this is a perfect gift for that person. Each fight is generally pay-per-view which is costly to buy every fight night. This box set comes in right under $150 which is an absolute fantastic value.
The only slight downfall, and I mean just a slight one, is that there is no behind-the-scenes footage included. In previous editions of this box set there have been extras included but not this year. Some may not care about that but I enjoy watching all the outside the ring stuff. Other than that, this is a perfect box set! If you think you missed any fights from this past year, no worries, it’s in the box set. My favorite fight on the entire collection would have to be Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans from UFC 145. I enjoy watching both fighters so seeing them go head-to-head for a title was amazing!
Leading up to the November 6th release date for this collection, UFC released two trailers which I have featured below if you still aren’t sold.

We give this DVD collection 4.5 out of five stars, and if you can’t wait to get it in your home, you can buy the whole set on Amazon.
