Description

UFC 8: David vs. Goliath was a (MMA) pay-per-vie event held by the UFC on February 16, 1996, in Bayamon, Puerto Rico at Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum. It was the first and only UFC event in Puerto Rico to date.

UFC 8 featured an eight-man tournament, and a UFC Superfight Championship fight between reigning UFC champion Ken Shamrock and Kimo Leopoldo. The event also featured one alternate fight, which was not shown on the live pay-per-view broadcast. The tournament had no weight classes, or weight limits. A 10-minute time limit was imposed for all matches in the tournament except Superfight and final (15 minutes).

The event’s matchups pitted larger fighters against smaller fighters, hence the term “David vs. Goliath”. The tournament championship fight featured Don Frye against Gary Goodridge, with Frye taking the victory when Goodridge tapped out.

This black shirt was worn by referee Big John McCarthy in the octagon for several of the match-ups in UFC 8. It come’s directly from Big John’s private collection. The manufacturer tagging in the collar shows it is Body Alive [XXL] – the verso also has custom embroidery from the manufacturer, Body Alive. The front chest features the event details – “DAVID vs. GOLIATH – UFC VIII embroidered in white.  For authentication it was autographed on the front in silver paint pen by him with the inscription, “UFC 8 WORN – February 16, 1996.
