.::THE FILM::.

So when I received this DVD, ďUFC Ultimate Knockouts 6Ē, I expected there to be tons of kick-arse fighting and a ton of matches to watch. Disappointingly enough though, the bouts werenít actual bouts, they were merely the last twenty-thirty seconds before the knockout occurred.

Even though there are a total of thirty-five fights encased on this DVD, the runtime is only a staggering 66 minutes, and thatís with intros to the fighters in between. Each fight does last only a few seconds, and once itís started itís over. There are a few of the fights that were a little longer than the rest, by a handful of seconds, but the ones that went quickly were the more interesting ones to watch.

I can see why on an Ultimate Knockout DVD that you would like to get to the action, but at least show a full round or something, seeing the two fighters duel for no less than ten seconds before someone gets a roundhouse kick to the face isnít exactly an engaging thing (at least itís not for me, if it is for you, then props). No more though than five of these fights did I find interesting, the rest seemed to the same thing: knockouts. Granted thatís what this is about, but I just wanted more of it.

Notable fights to watch: Evans Vs Lambert, Jackson vs Eastman, and finally Silva vs Drwal.

Ultimate Fighting really isnít my thing, but I do enjoy watching it from time to time. But keyword here is ďwatching,Ē as though itís hard to get into a match that lasts twenty seconds. The best part about this DVD, as is the usual once again, is Joe Roganís excellent commentating. During one fight he nearly falls of his chair from excitement after a knockout that shocked everyone in the arena.

This is a DVD that you go in knowing what youíre going to see: Knockouts, knockouts, and a submission or two thrown in for good measure. Set your sights accordingly.



.::SPECIAL FEATURES::.

Sorry fans, no special features to be found here.



.::AUDIO & VIDEO::.

This transfer is nearly identical to the past UFC DVDís Iíve watched, and as such, I have the same reservations about it. While flesh tones for the most part are good, there are a few of the fights that seem to have their colors slightly astray. Some of the fighters appear to be lighter and darker at some moments during their (relatively short) fights also. The same problem also appeared with the cage in the background as well. Itís a decent transfer, just not a spectacular one.

The same goes for the audio, as it comes equipped with the for some reason standard Dolby Digital 2.0 track, there are issues galore with this one. For the most part the dialogue from the commentators can be heard clearly, but a few of the fights when they commentate are significantly louder than ten seconds prior. At one point Rogan literally screams and nearly blew a speaker it was that much more booming than the rest of the fights. The fights themselves however are crisp, just not what they ultimately should be.



.::OVERALL::.

Even if youíre some diehard fan of the UFC and want to own every possible DVD that comes out, I recommend just renting this one. Itís only an hour long and with no special features and another (yet again) Dolby Digital 2.0 track, I canít in good conscience recommend this for a purchase. Itís always entertaining to watch people beat the living crap out of each other, but not when the fights shown last twenty seconds.
