UFC: Best of 2008

 (TV) (2008)

UFC: Best of 2008 Blu-ray delivers great video and poor audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Looking back on a year packed with explosive mixed martial arts action, this collection of memorable Ultimate Fighting Championship matches rounds up the best bouts of 2008 and stacks them together in one convenient package. From mettle-tested world champions defending their reputations to title-hungry rookies on the rise, these are the most exciting and entertaining battles the UFC has to offer.

For more about UFC: Best of 2008 and the UFC: Best of 2008 Blu-ray release, see UFC: Best of 2008 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

UFC: Best of 2008 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080i utilizing the VC-1 codec (at an average bitrate of 35Mbps) UFC: Best of 2008 looks surprisingly good on Blu-ray. Simply put, nothing elevates the enjoyment of a sporting exhibition like high-defintion. Having suffered through years of watching old UFC tournaments on VHS, followed by years of buying UFC events on highly compressed pay-per-view, this is finally the way MMA was meant to be viewed. Every drop of sweat or blood is clearly visible on the face of the fighters and I was impressed with how easy it was to read the fine lettering of the sponsor names on the shorts of the opponents. Colors are completely natural, and accurately reflect the hues digitally captured with various high-definition cameras placed around the ring. I only have two minor complaints about the video quality of the feature. First, I noticed a slight bit of aliasing from time to time on the Bud Light sign in the middle of the ring (nothing terribly distracting, and won't deter the overall viewing experience). Second, though it's not the fault of the transfer, there are occasional shots that appear out of focus immediately when the fight switches to a new camera angle. Since this is a source issue, it can't be helped, but it's still worth mentioning if your considering picking up this Blu-ray set.

Note: taking screen captures of 1080i material containing fast movement has an unfortunate tendency to create blurring or blocking that doesn't accurately portray the viewing experience. I've done my best to include shots that demonstrate the visual clarity, but there may still be some shots that contain some nasty blocking or blurring in certain areas of the screen (where movement is present).


UFC: Best of 2008 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The only audio offering on the disc is a measly English Dolby Digital 2.0 track. I keep hoping UFC will eventually catch up with other sports with the use of audio equipment that puts you square in the middle of the action. Football has implemented this in recent years, and I doubt it would take much to place some decent audio equipment over or around the octagon. As it stands, you can make out some faint sounds from within the octagon that are picked up in the background of the announcer's microphones. I've never been a big fan of the commentary by Joe Rogan or Mike Goldberg, but I've grown accustomed to their constant chatter throughout the fights and the audio track reproduces the dialogue with sufficient clarity. Overall, this is an entirely unremarkable audio experience, but it mirrors the quality most fans have grown accustomed to on pay-per-view cable.
