On the week of the theatrical release of “The A-Team” movie (starring UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as B.A. Baracus), Anchor Bay has decided to release a greatest hits disc of the popular fighter. In this collection we see Jackson battling against: Yuki Ishikawa, Igor Vovchanchyn, Kevin Randleman, Chuck Liddell (twice), Ricardo Arona, Marvin Eastman, Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva and Keith Jardine. Additionally, viewers get a glimpse of his ovrall career, how he developed as a fighter, how he rose to fame, his belt wins, and his unfortunate losses.

If you have any interest in Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, this is definitely a disc to check out. The set comprises of 5 Pride and 5 UFC matches and there isn’t a boring match in the bunch. Both of the Liddell matches were especially intense, fast-paced punch fests and the Jardine and Silva battles do not disappoint. The best match, however, has to be the highly entertaining battle against Igor Vovchanchyn. Without spoiling too much of the fight, let me just say there are some incredible body slams here by Jackson.

Summary: While viewers are better off purchasing individual UFC event discs, this best of collection is certainly a must own for fans of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Fights are presented in both Fullscreen and Widescreen 1080i on the Blu-ray disc. The footage varies in quality as the fights on this disc are from various time periods. The newer matches are obviously much crisper looking. As far as the DVD picture quality goes, the colors are much less refined than that of the Blu-ray disc.

The Dolby Digital track on the Blu-ray contains clear sounding commentators, narration, crowd noise for the most part. However, the roar of the crowd does overpower the commentators sometimes (like in the UFC Liddell fight). The DVD Dolby Digital audio track is about as good as the Blu-ray track.

The only extras included on both the Blu-ray and DVD discs are UFC.com and UFC DVD ads.
