The Ultimate Fighting Championship Part II (later renamed 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.


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 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]

Stuntman, and co-creator of the UFC: Ben Perry, joined the announcing crew for the first time in UFC-2. He was quoted that evening as introducing Scott Morris into the ring by saying: "We don’t know much about Scott Morris, because he is a Ninja". [6]

This event did a buyrate of 300,000 [7]
