    Boiling point, supernatural, redemption.

    There was a time where ufc events used to be known by more than just who was fighting on the card, they used to be known by iconic names. BRING BACK THE COOL NAMES GUYS

    if they weren't so corny then sure

    they should be meme-ish names

    They should let Khabib name them because he comes up with some off the wall ideas.

    The War of 04 was bad, but the rest were all awesome.

    It certainly made it a lot easier to remember which event was which. No fucking clue what was on UFC 167, but I will always remember that UFC 51 was Super Saturday for example and was headlined by Ortiz/Belfort

    A few that stick out to me:

    UFC 85 - Bedlam
    UFC 59 - Reality Check
    UFC 101 - Declaration

    What does that even mean? I love it. Bring it back!

    My favorite was UFC 76: Knockout

    There was no knockouts on the card.

    Don’t forget UFC Knockout, which went without a single knockout on the whole card.

    Kind of hard to say "This isn't wrestling" at this point...

    Oh, and my favorite was UFC 84: Ill Will

    First UFC PPV I bought and it was well worth it :)
