In September of 1997 the world of professional fighting was changed forever when Brazilian promoter Sergio Baterelli introduced a brutal new form of bare-fisted fighting that edged out the Ultimate Fighting Championship as the place to go for hard-hitting, full-impact action. As the popularity of the IVC grew, fighters such as Vanderlei Silva and Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell rose through the ranks to become two of the top fighters in the Pride and UFC organizations respectively. Now, directly from the Brazillian television masters comes some of the rawest fighting ever telecast. With nine total fights including two single fights and a jaw-dropping eight man tournament, this is bare-fisted fighting in its purest form.
