The event was the third UFC event to be held in Japan.
The Octagon announcer was local Sanshiro Matuyama instead of the regular Bruce Buffer.
This event also contained an interview with John Perretti, the UFC matchmaker at the time.
UFC 25 was initially seen live on pay-per-view. Spike published a DVD release of UFC 25 exclusively in Japan, with a wider video release occurring after UFC was purchased by Zuffa years later as part of a DVD collection covering events initially unreleased by SEG Sports due to their financial difficulties leading to the sale.
