Video rental in 2001 here in Australia.
Heard about it and was dying to see it. A buddy got the first two from a buddy of his on VHS, we watched them together and I was hooked. You could get them at blockbuster shortly after that.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu, all the way!
Best sport ever! I started watching at The Ultimate Fighter. One of the best things you can get into for health reasons if you don't want to compete.
My dad saw/tape the ufc ppv in michigan i think, where ken shamrock and somebody essencially circled each other for 30 mins. but the rest of the card must have been amazing because he took up like karate or some thing right after (for a month maybe) and when we saw shamrock in the WWF i always knew that this motherfucker was the real deal. I didn't see the PPV that night, my parents treated the UFC like it was porn and he hid the tape away from us till we found it one day and watched it i must hav been 7 or eight. I remember thinking i was watching like some crazy illegal thing, and was always looking out for ufc ever since.
Live Black Box cable Happy Birthday we are 21

Blockbuster video with my dad in the mid-late 90's. We were looking for the coliseum home video collection and it was then that I discovered MMA for the first time.
