As the new UFC brass continues to “cut cost” the MMA landscape as we know it continues to ever evolve. With multiple closures and staff layoffs, the UFC’s “Piracy Department” has been touched. Rumblings on the inter-web seem to believe the once heavily monitored “.gif” and “stream” communities will receive some MUCH loved leniency. With all that being said we have decided to look at the “Most Popular” (most viewed) videos posted on the official UFC YouTube channel. 

Click “Published” link to watch video.

10.  “UFC 81: Brock Lesnar’s UFC Debut” – 4,298,913 – Published 01.30.08

The oldest entrant on the list is a CLASSIC pre ’10 Zuffa PPV hype package, minimal graphics and a ton of shadowboxing. Highlights include Rogan with hair and a Kurt Angle talking head. I bought this PPV and recorded it to VHS… in 2008.


9.   “Ultimate Royce Gracie: Final Fight” – 4,318,526 – Published: 06.03.14

This is just bizarre! Not sure why this video is titled “Final Fight” as Royce went on to fight FIVE more times in the octagon. Anyways it’s PPV footage that includes pre-fight interviews of Royce vs. Kimo from UFC III.

 8.   “UFC 202: McGregor vs. Diaz II Octagon Interviews – 4,679,947 – Published: 08.20.16

The most recent entrant on our list, relive the scorecards being read after their instant classic. Conor is also not surprised. THESE TWO ARE MONEY $$$

Uriah Hall EXPLODED onto the UFC/TUF scene with his cosmic spin-kick of fury on Adam Cella. TUF 17 teased the KO over many episodes to build anticipation. “One of the nastiest knockouts I’ve ever seen in the fight business, let alone on the Ultimate Fighter” says Dana White.

5.   “UFC 193: The Thrill and Agony Preview” – 7,687,141 – Published: 12.14.15
