If your a big UFC fan then guaranteed you have your favourite fight cards in your memory, and what better way to immortalise your favourite card in your house then by getting your favourite UFC Event posters.
Not just any UFC event posters, but also they are autographed by all the fighters that were on the card! I mean lets be honest everybody holds onto memories, and posters is a way that fans can express there enjoyment they had of a certain moment, experience or sporting event.
As I say in all my ticket posts, there is no live event like UFC events in terms of pure crowd buzz and event energy in my experience, and the poster for the event is all a part of the experience.
So today we are going to have a look at some of my favourite UFC event posters in history, and why they are an awesome feature inside the house of a big MMA fan.
Now I don’t know if you noticed, but if you think about all the best UFC fight cards you have ever seen, I guarantee that in many of them, it was the event poster that gave you that extra bit of buzz in the days leading up to the card.
Whether you saw it on the internet, around your town, or at the event arena itself, when you saw the image of some of your favourite Martial Artists going toe to toe with a high quality piece of artwork – your excitement just got notched up a level.
This is the fight game and event posters are a big part of an event being a success or not, so while some can be much better designed or more memorable for us for certain reasons, the event poster is always a big part of the prestigious marketing heft for the card.
What are some of the best event posters ever?
I mean this is a difficult question, because its not the poster that we remember from the event in our memory, its what happened on the night of the fights, or maybe something that happened in our own personal life that made that specific UFC event extra memorable to us.
Also for me an event poster, no matter how well its designed cannot save a fight card that is a disappointment when the kicks and punches start flying.
So for me the best UFC event posters are the ones that are well designed of course, but also follow through with an amazing night of epic fights. Here’s a few of my favourites –
UFC 165: Jones vs Gustafsson – This was flat out one of the closest, and most compelling fights I have ever seen before, and this has to be one of the best Event Posters I have seen.
UFC 44: Undisputed – Couture vs Ortiz – Was a great event at the time, two absolute legends of the sport in their prime and the facial expressions of Ortiz and Couture on this poster really sold the event!
UFC 155 Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II – This is a cool design, both men look like some kind of roman statues which is fitting considering how gargantuan this fight was.
UFC 201: Lawler vs Woodley – was a good card and had a climax of a shocking upset in the main event, the poster really shows Woodley in the back looking like a predator ready to strike his prey, which is basically what he did in the fight!
UFC 70: Nations Collide – Cro Cop vs Gonzaga – Who could ever forget the event where Cro Cop got Cro Copped? This is truly one to remember.
UFC 32 Showdown in the Meadowlands Ortiz vs. Sinosic – this just takes me back to a more simple time in MMA, back when I first started finding the sport – check the hair on Tito!
UFC 207 Nunes vs. Rousey – Shes back! Oh yeah shes back and took an absolute beating from Amanda Nunes! Wow what a shocker, and this poster highlights how Rousey was promoted too hard for this card, and Nunes not enough.
Remember they are autographed and highly collectible
Now I don’t care who you are, guaranteed there was someone you saw on TV once whether it was some musician, actor, athlete, politician etc. And you thought they were amazing, something about what they did captivated you, and then what did you do? You went to a live event to see them right.
Then what did you do when you met them? I bet you shook their hand, maybe even cuddled them if they would let you and you damn sure didn’t leave them till you got some pictures and of course an autograph.
Every sports fan knows that anything you get from a live sporting event that gets signed, just gives it more weight. Before every UFC event you see fighters signing event posters, because as fans we love getting our hands on some of these posters to immortalise the memory for us.
Also who knows if you get two posters, you could keep one, and then sell the other one in 20 years for a great price if you keep it in good condition! So don’t forget that these UFC event posters are highly collectable.
- These posters are officially licensed by the UFC directly from their store, so there are no cheap imitations here, just the real posters you see fighters signing on fight week at the arena.
- Also all these posters include an individually numbered tamper-evident hologram, which again makes forgery impossible.
- All these posters are directly autographed by the hand of your favourite UFC heroes.
- Some of the best Event posters are not only nice enough to frame, but wouldn’t look out of place in any house no matter how big or small.
- These posters ultimately immortalise those special events for us – the ones that we will never forget, maybe it was the fights on the card, or maybe we became a parent for the first time, or got an awesome new job. Whatever your reason for getting a certain event poster, the memories will be all that more legendary in your mind because of buying it and hanging it on your wall.
- The designs are really varied and are really made with some top design work and fight promotion.
- They are all framed which will keep the poster in mint condition for as long as you like.
- Well lets not beat around the bush, these UFC event posters are not cheap, but then what is the price of our best memories in our lives? For me they are priceless, so there is no price I cannot match to immortalise that special event in my house.
- There is a few event posters that the UFC store don’t have available, but remember because of their collectability alone these posters do sell out quick!
Lets never forget our history
So after reading my review I expect you have come to your own decision about if you want to get a UFC Event Poster. But as we have been talking about throughout this post, these posters are ultimately a piece of history and we all love to remember the best parts of our history.
If you take care of these posters they will outlive you, and you will be able to pass it one to your children, and them onto theirs as a priceless piece of memorabilia.
