OSMMA Review: UFC 11, Part 2 - Epic Tournament Fail

In the second part of the OSMMA Review of UFC 11, we look at the huge brawl between Tank Abbott and Scott Ferrozzo, and how a pay-per-view kills 70 minutes of dead air time with filler until we get the weirdest ending ever!

Welcome back to the second part of this two-part review for UFC 11. If you did not watch part one yet, make sure you watch it at this link here!

In this two-episode, we examine UFC 11 from September 20, 1996 at the RIchmond County Civic Center in Augusta, Georgia. With one event away from the second "Ultimate Ultimate" tournament, we get a tournament lacking in overall star power, but bringing back returning UFC 10 champion, Mark Coleman, as well as Tank Abbott, back from suspension after an incident at UFC 8 involving Art Davie.

We also get a few other familiar faces back in the octagon, like Brian Johnston, the Lion's Den protege Jerry Bohlander, Sam Adkins, and Scott Ferrozzo, and the glorious return of announcer Rich Goins! It's quick finishes, dull brawls, and never-ending Jeff Blatnick interviews & filler segments, as we examine one of the most bizarre events in UFC history with a surprise ending that no one expected!

Part 2 of this episode includes the semi-finals which features Scott Ferrozzo stepping up as an alternate against Tank Abbott to give us one of the most famous and maybe most disappointing brawls in old school UFC history, a quick Coleman smackdown, and then 70 minutes of filler as confusion ensues, leading up to the one of the strangest endings in the history of the UFC tournaments.

On the first article about UFC 11, our poll question was a Compuserve Chat inspired question - How would Mike Tyson do in the UFC (back in 1996)? If you want to vote on that, go back to Part 1 - in this post, your poll question is who would win in a fight between Don "The Dragon" Wilson and Jeff Blatnick? Vote now and leave comments telling us how this fight would go down!
