UFC 50: The War of ’04 Fight Used Octagon Canvas Mat w/ Trump AdvertisingGo Back
Out of stock
UFC 50: The War of ’04 was a MMA event held by the UFC on October 22, 2004, at the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Headlining the card were Tito Ortiz and Patrick Côté. Ortiz one the battle by decision.
Côté was a late replacement for Lion’s Den fighter Guy Mezger, who pulled out of the event after being taken to the hospital due to stroke-like symptoms. Patrick Côté was moved from the undercard to the main event. The event included another episode of “On The Mat”, teaching the Kimura. The event was also featured on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The 750 square foot Octagon measures 30 feet across and 6 feet high, and was created with both safety and fairness in mind. Its walls and padded surfaces protect fighters from falling out (or getting thrown out). The wide angles prevent fighters from getting stuck in a corner with no way out. Since boxing is fought in a square ring and wrestling in a circle, the Octagon avoids giving any one martial arts discipline the advantage. While a fight is in progress, only the two fighters and one referee are allowed inside the Octagon. Between rounds, both gates are opened to allow the cornermen and cutmen to enter the area.
This auction is for the actual UFC octagon canvas from UFC 50. Each mat for the floor is custom painted for each unique event and is never used again. The mat is 30 ft x 30 ft. This one features prominent Trump venue advertising along with the central Xyience.com supplements. Other advertising surrounds the central area.
The canvas was used and abused with remnants of blood, sweat and tears from the evening of October 22, 2004. Notable fighters that fought, bled and sweat on this historic canvas include – Main Event – Tito Ortiz vs. Patrick Cote & Welter Weight Championship fight George St. Pierre vs. Matt Hughes. The canvas originates directly from referee Big John McCarthy’s private collection.
