The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is an American mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion company that hosts most of the top-ranked fighters in the world and produces numerous events worldwide. The UFC has five weight-divisions (growing to seven in 2011) and enforces the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Dana White serves as the president of the UFC; Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta control its parent company, Zuffa, LLC.
Inspired by vale tudo tournaments in Brazil, the UFC and the sport of MMA have roots in the ancient Olympic combat sport of Pankration in 648 B.C. The UFC held its first competition in Denver, Colorado in 1993. Showcasing fighters of different disciplines—including boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, Muay Thai and other styles—the UFC sought to identify the most effective martial art in a real fight. After a period of political backlash, the UFC gradually underwent reform by embracing stricter rules and achieving sanctioning with State Athletic Commissions.
With a cable-television deal and expansion into Canada, Europe, Australia the Middle East, Asia and new markets within the United States, the UFC as of 2010 has gained in popularity, along with greater mainstream-media coverage. As of 2010 viewers can access UFC programming on pay-per-view television in the U.S., Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Italy. UFC programming can also be found on Spike and Versus in the U.S., on ESPN in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as in over 130 countries and in 20 different languages worldwide.

A one disc DVD composing nine X Division matches (eleven if you count the two bonus matches) held between November 2004 and July 2005. The focus, as you would imagine is on TNA’s then signature division which at the time was the hottest thing going in the company. I should mention of course that a lot of these matches are very spot-heavy, but rest assured there’s plenty of excellent wrestling mixed in.
Sometime in the late '90s, the WWF was losing fans to more graphically violent and extreme wrestling companies. Fans, it seemed, preferred seeing guys beat the hell out of each other legally with foreign objects. Never above pandering to their fans, the WWF finally created their Hardcore division (and a Hardcore Championship, to be defended 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no less). This awkwardly produced, hourlong compilation tries to give historical perspective to the mutant, controversial wing of pro wrestling, while highlighting some of the more famous matches that took place over the past couple of years. You could argue that the strength of the WWF over the years has been the writing, the ongoing soap operas, and that Hardcore matches simply opt for easy sensationalism... but that's another essay. If you want to see men (and, in one instance, women) beat each other with broomsticks, pipes, beer mugs, and boxes of tampons, or choke one another with garden hoses, this is the tape for you. The appeal of this stuff is it usually ends up outside of the ring. For example, the funniest match has Al Snow battling the Big Boss Man in a bar across the street from the arena (talk about bar room brawls!). As one wrestler says, "Hardcore is like watching a car crash: you don't want to look, but once you do, you can't look away.
Early in 2000, a full-length documentary called Beyond the Mat stripped away the facade of professional wresting, intimately profiling some of the top names in the business and detailing the physical and mental hardships endured by the stars. Often brutal and depressing, it was the type of dirty laundry that people like WWF president Vince McMahon didn't want their audience to see. (McMahon unsuccessfully tried to get the film banned.) Eve of Destruction often feels like McMahon's tepid response to Beyond the Mat. The video looks back at some of the more infamous matches in recent years, interviewing the participants and coming across like a sappy VH1 Behind the Music rip-off. In fact, two of the matches featured in this video are profiled in far greater depth in Beyond the Mat. Both Hell in the Cell and Last Man Standing feature Mick "Mankind" Foley taking horrific beatings (during Hell in a Cell, against the Undertaker, he flies 20 feet off a cage and onto a table adjacent to ringside, while the result of a Last Man Standing match against the Rock leaves the man's face split open), but the accompanying interviews are self-congratulatory and over-hyped rather than probing. The whole video plays like a greatest-hits compilation, but fails to give fans an entire match in its entirety.
