This is probably the oldest online discussion about a UFC event. Keep in mind that most Americans and most people in the world did not have any type of online access at all in 1993. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.sport.pro-wrestling/TUIueDNvDWo/discussion A few snippets: Overall, I'd say the show was *pretty* good. Worth the $14.95 PPV charge? Not really, when you consider the TOTAL fighting time of the show was 13 minutes, one second--and three hours of airtime was blocked off, so I presumed I was getting a three hour show. * How could this be made BETTER in the future? My suggestion would be to eliminate the choke hold (make it illegal), but retain all other submission holds. I think that boxer and the shoot-fighter panicked when the choke hold was put on. Also the choke hold is life threatening, so what if someone waited too long to waive off? * I'm still not sold on the fact that someone like Shamrock or a kung fu badass couldn't take Gracie out given the chance...even a Shorin-Ryu fighter (discipline I used to study/train for years) could land a kick that's just as lethal as a choke hold.
