UFC 10: The Godfather of Ground and Pound

Mark Coleman

UFC 10: The Tournament – Birmingham, Ala. – Fairgrounds Arena – July 12, 1996

Bruce Beck welcomes us on play-by-play and throws it to color commentator Jeff Blatnick for an interview with Don Frye, who won UFC 8. He relishes his role as the favorite in tonight’s tournament and calls his first-round foe, Mark Hall, a “dangerous’ opponent.

Big John McCarthy keeps up his streak of refereeing every UFC event. Bruce Buffer makes his debut as the Octagon ring announcer, and he sounds great right off the bat.
