The Ultimate Fighting Championship debuts, as eight fighters enter the Octagon for a one-night tournament to determine the superior fighting style, including Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, and Gerard Gordeau.
UFC 3 used an eight-man tournament format, with the winner receiving $60,000. The tournament had no weight classes or weight limits. Each match had no time limit, rounds or rules; therefore no judges were used for the night.
UFC 4 - used an eight-man tournament format, with the winner receiving $64,000. The event also featured three alternate fights. All seven tournament fights were shown on the live pay-per-view broadcast.

Four UFC champions! Three UFC finalists! Plus Keith Hackney! It doesn't get much better than this. It's UFC 7.5, Ultimate Ultimate. A star-studded lineup including such combat luminaries as Tank Abbott, Dan Severn, Marco Ruas and Oleg Taktarov . . . but seriously, who invited Steve Jennum? I know the guy "won" UFC 3, but he's clearly pants. There is no super-fight this time, instead a simple single elimination tournament featuring the biggest names, minus Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock, but an exciting prospect nonetheless. There is a groundbreaking new change of rules that will impact the UFC as we know it. This is the first UFC to have three judges who decide the winner in the event of the 15 minute time limit expiring. This is a huge step forward that brings the UFC closer to what we all know and love today.
