We’re sent plenty of DVD screeners here at 5thRound, but I gotta say, “UFC: Ultimate Royce Gracie” is a pretty sweet collection. Although Spike TV has broadcast the “Ultimate Gracie” special numerous times in the past, having immediate access to some of his best scraps is worth the $24.98 DVD/$34.99 Blu-ray price tag.
“He is the godfather. He is the man who started it all and we all bow down and kiss the ring of Royce Gracie,” UFC president Dana White said. “He kick-started the entire sport of mixed martial arts.”
Anchor Bay Entertainment’s two-disc tribute comes in collectible packaging that includes a book with images, quotes and biography.
The Gracies are synonymous with Brazilian jiu jitsu and Royce unleashed it on the mixed martial arts world. He holds the Octagon record for most submission victories with 12.
The collection starts with UFC 1, where Gracie defeated three opponents in the same night. Watch as he throws down with Ken Shamrock, Kimo Leopoldo, Kazushi Sakuraba and many more.
