No doubt, one of the best UFC of the early times.
6 January 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This tournament is surely one of the best UFCs of the 90's.

Marco Ruas takes the game up to a whole other level. There have been guys in the UFC before, that have cross-trained, but not like him. For the first time in the UFC, you have a fighter who can effectively wrestle, strike, and fight on the ground. Ruas Vale-Tudo's motto back in the day was: "If he likes to punch or kick, I'll take 'im down, if he wants to take me down and fight on the ground, I'll keep standing and strike him".

Today, cross-training between different styles might be nothing new, but back then in '96 it was unheard of for most people. And even those fighters who had some cross-training couldn't blend their styles very well, and were all still too dependent on a single style.

Marco had been cross-training since his youth, and he was already using boxing/luta-livre (grappling) techniques since his early fights in Brazil in the 80's. In '96 he was able to show the martial arts world that Brazil had a lot more than just Jiu-Jistu.

This is HISTORICAL. If you like martial arts, fighting sports, or just some one-on-one REAL fighting action, this tape is for you.
