UFC 15: Collision Course was a MMA event held by the UFC on October 17, 1997, in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. It was headlined by a UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between Maurice Smith and Tank Abbott. Abbott was brought in as a last-minute replacement for Dan Severn, who couldn’t fight because of an injured hand.
It featured a Superfight between Randy Couture and Vitor Belfort, a Heavyweight Tournament, and two alternate bouts. The Superfight was billed as a Heavyweight Title Elimination bout, which can be described as a #1 Contender’s match, meaning the winner would advance to compete for the UFC Heavyweight Championship at the next event, UFC Japan. The show also marked the last event to feature Bruce Beck, who had been the main play-by-play announcer starting with UFC 4. He was replaced by Mike Goldberg in UFC Japan.
Collision Course marked a major change in the UFC’s rules, with limitations set on permissible striking areas. Headbutts, groin strikes, strikes to the back of the neck and head, knees to a downed opponent, heads stomps, kicks to a downed opponent, small joint manipulation, and hair pulling all became officially illegal.
Presented is an actual on-site poster that advertised the battles in UFC 15: Collision Course. The poster measures 14×20 (in display) and is from the rare SEG ownership era of the UFC. The poster itself has some wear from display and handling. The poster originates from Big John McCarthy’s personal collection. This lot also includes two important credentials (passes) for the event from McCarthy with one being for a fighter and one was an All-Access.
