    Long time lurker on this part of the board - it's a great source of information all around.

    What's the first MMA event you saw that got you into the sport? My first was Christmas 2004 when I went to my friend's house to watch Shockwave. My most vivid memory was the Ryo Chonan flying heel hook. I thought Chonan was the best fighter in the world after that.

    I also thought that Wandy sucked, Mark Hunt was incredible, and had no idea who Cro Cop or Fedor were and fell asleep during their matches.

    UFC 1, with the karate side kick to the black sumo on his knees, with the tooth flying out into the crowd. Hooked for life after that.

    I watched all of the old UFCs at Blockbuster....like Shamrock vs Gracie when I was super young. I got back into it after Tito Ortiz became champion.

    UFC 1 for me. I remember that event because we were over at a family friend's house and my mom and dad kept saying that I shouldn't be watching something so violent :rofl:

    Seen 3 local shows in person. I have no clue on what was my first ppv/dvd fight I saw. One of the early UFCs I'm sure.

    Exact same thing here. A bunch of family got together to watch it. I was pretty young to be watching it though.

    I was about 5 or 6 out in the school yard during recess. I clearly remember the other kid mounting another and laying down some GnP.

    first event was pride final conflict 2005. after that, i took up judo, then brazilian jiu jitsu.

    i'd say that was a great way to get me hooked. It was an awesome show too!
