The Ultimate Fighting Championship Part II (later renamed UFC 2: No Way Out) was a MMA event held by the UFC on March 11, 1994, at Mammoth Gardens in Denver, Colorado. UFC 2 featured a sixteen-man tournament format, the first and only one in UFC’s history, with the winner receiving $60,000.
The first seven bouts were not aired on the live pay-per-view broadcast, but were on the home video version. The tournament had no weight classes or weight limits. Matches had no time limit or rounds, therefore no judges were used. Competitors could only win a match by submission, by the opponent’s corner throwing in the towel, or by knockout
UFC 2 marked the debut of referee John McCarthy, arguably the most famous referee in the sport of MMA. Since this was the only 16-man tournament in UFC history, Royce Gracie is the only person to have ever fought and won 4 fights in 1 night in the UFC.
Presented is an actual rare program from UFC 2 that was displayed on a matte and then removed from the display to be put back to its original state. As a result of the program being matted, there is tape reminants on the corners of each page. Pages 2,3,4.5 are missing from the program. These pages were advertisements and not the main part of the program. McCarthy made sure that he had the main items displayed from the program.
The display measures 21.5×37 and features four prominent pages “TALE OF THE TAPE” along with the cover from the event. The pages showcase images on the front and the back. This program originates from “Big” John McCarthy’s personal collection and would be perfect for framing.
