Description

The card featured an eight man tournament with two alternate bouts, and was the UFC’s second “Ultimate Ultimate” tournament, held to find the best of the winners and runners up from past UFC events. This event was the first to introduce the “no grabbing of the fence” rule.

Ken Shamrock appeared as a guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on the mainstream network NBC to promote the event, a groundbreaking moment for the young sport of MMA.

The event would also be the last time Don Frye fought in the UFC, as he would also transition into pro wrestling, signing with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Mark Hall, who Frye defeated in the semifinals, would later claim that Don Frye and manager Robert DePersia came into his dressing room during the tournament and convinced him to throw the two fighters’ upcoming semi-final match. 

Referee John McCarthey later wrote in his autobiography Let’s Get It On!:

Presented is a poster from Ultimate Ultimate 1996. The poster from the SEG era measures in at 24×36 and shows some display wear around the edges/corners (pin holes etc.). The signatures in a variation of ink colors include (19) in quantity and are – Ken Shamrock, Tai Bowden, Don Frye, Steve Nelmark, Tank Abbott, Gary Goodridge, Paul Varelans, Cal Worsham, Felix Mitchell, Brian Johnston, Mark Hall, Marcus Bossett, “Big” John McCarthy (Referee), Jeff Blatnick (1984 Olympic Gold Medalist/Commentator) and others.

The poster originates from the “Big” John McCarthy collection.
