The Beginning of MMA as we know it today
2 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that the first season of the ultimate fighter came out in 2005, and here I am in 2010 looking back on it. And when considering that it has only been five years, it is amazing to think about how much the UFC and the sport of MMA has grown.

The history of this show is well documented by now. The UFC was losing money, there was no mma on cable television, and the UFC was worried about being pulled from PPV (again). It's also been said that the UFC funded the show with their own money and sold it to Spike TV. Considering the show's backstory, few would have thought that it would have caught on with the public, and helped make the UFC what it is today.

When reviewing the first season, the first thing that comes to mind is all the great fighters on Team Couture and Team Liddell. The season included UFC stars: Forrest Griffin, Stephan Bonnar, Mike Swick, Josh Koscheck, Diego Sanchez, Kenny Florian, and Chris Leben. The season also included many classic battles, including the fight that was voted as the best UFC fight of all time in a UFC poll.

If you are a fan of the UFC, or MMA in general, be sure to check out the Ultimate Fighter, where you will see future stars of the game compete for a contract into the UFC.
