    God I love those old cheesy event names:

    UFC 2 - No Way Out
    UFC 7 - Brawl in Buffalo
    UFC 15 - Collision Course
    UFC 31 - Locked and Loaded
    UFC 42 - Sudden Impact
    UFC 49 - Unfinished Business
    UFC 77 - Hostile Territory
    UFC 85 - Bedlam

    It's like bad 80s movie titles but I love it. I know they stopped doing them for promotional reasons...but I kinda wish they would go back and start naming some of the events but also promote the names of the fighters...

    UFC 248 - WORLDS COLLIDE - Adesanya vs Romero
    UFC 249 - THE COLD WAR - Khabib vs Ferguson

    No Way Out was referring to the shoddy construction of the cage at the time.

    Yeah I miss the cheesy event names too. Other organizations had some bad ones too.

    I dig. But I think we should save the broad ones you used. Cold War is fine for Tony Khabib.

    Pretty easy - just license all of Seagals' & VanDammes' movie titles ,.... apply as needed .


    double impact ..................... hard to kill
    hard target ....................... under siege
    lionheart ......................... on deadly ground
    sudden death ..................... out for justice
    maximum risk .................... half past dead
    death warrant .................... exit wounds
    nowhere to run ......................... out of reach


    This shit writes itself ......

    Haha, these are awesome. Wet-n-wild!? Lol what were they thinking? Were they subliminally trying to add sexual innuendos into it thinking it would attract more viewers lol?

    I'm just glad the UFC never had a December event called "Seasons Beatings" like every small-time local promotion.

    The funniest thing about this is it was held at an open air arena and it just so happened to rain that day. It resulted in this.
