First Step in the Octagon

I would like to give you all a bit of background on how we decided to attack this initial release of UFC cards.

When we were planning UFC Round 1 we knew that for many of these fighters this would be their first trading card and for all of them, their first official UFC card. These would be their rookie cards, but how do you produce a “rookie card” for legends of a
sport, some of which that have been fighting for years?

What we decided to do was to feature 90 fighters and their first official fight within the UFC Octagon. Royce Gracie is pictured grappling with Art Jimmerson at UFC 1. Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar are shown in their battle at the TUF 1 finale in one the most exciting MMA matches yet. Shane Carwin is photographed during his 44 second TKO victory over Christian Wellisch.

Personalities other than the fighters will be presented as well such as the lovely Octagon Girls, referee Herb Dean, Bruce Buffer, and Dana White.

Included are some photos of the cards mentioned above. Please let us know what you think and submit any questions you may have in the comment field.

  1. We've seen many examples on how the fronts of the cards will look like but we haven't seen any shots of the back. Can you post any up?
