The Ultimate Fighting Championship Part II (later renamed UFC 2 or UFC 2: No Way Out) was a mixed martial arts (MMA) event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on March 11, 1994, at Mammoth Gardens in Denver, Colorado.[1] The event was seen live on pay-per-view in the United States,[2] and was later released on home video.

History[edit]

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. [3]

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 Big John McCarthy, arguably the most famous referee in the sport of MMA.[4]

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.[5]
