Oleg Taktarov Signed Poster UFC 7 Brawl in Buffalo SEGGo Back
UFC 7: The Brawl in Buffalo was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on September 8, 1995, at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York.
UFC 7 featured an eight-man tournament, a UFC Superfight Championship match between reigning UFC champion Ken Shamrock and UFC 6 tournament winner Oleg Taktarov, and three alternate fights, which were not shown on the live pay-per-view broadcast. The tournament had no weight classes, or weight limits. Each match had no rounds, but a 20-minute time limit was imposed for the quarterfinal and semi-final round matches in the tournament. The finals of the tournament and the Superfight had a 30-minute time limit and, if necessary, a five-minute overtime.
Consistent with early UFC events, the time limit was not followed as the Superfight only featured a three-minute overtime, perhaps due to pay-per-view time constraints. Regardless of this, the show ran over its three-hour pay-per-view slot, cutting off some viewers from seeing the final match. The referee for the main card was Big John McCarthy. Michael Buffer served as the guest ring announcer for the night.
Presented is a poster from the UFC 7 event. It was autographed by the main event contributor, Oleg Taktarov on the surface of the glass in silver felt tip (“8”). The poster measures in at 26″x 38.5″ with display. It originates directly from Big John McCarthy’s private collection.
