"the Pentagon Combat show with Bustamante vs Bohlander is pretty hard to find. The Kuwait show with Pele vs hughes is probably the one you're talking about though " You've got to be shitting me.Both of those are fairly easy to find.In fact that COWA guy used to sell Pentagon Combat on his website way back in the day.

There was an event years ago. It was in Hawaii and had Fred Floyd, Kimo and John Lewis.This was before Extreme Fighting even. If there's a tape of that it has to be very rare.I think it was called Ultimate Pankration or something. And I'm not talking about the event where Kimo fought Brian Johnston.

Pentagon combat is very easy to get. Tape traders had that one sent to everyone years ago and yes COWA also had it. I would say Rickson vs Zulu 1. The first event they fought in when Zulu was 140-0 and Rickson was 20 years old.

"Mars Rising Stars.Not Reality Superfighting but the 8 man tournament that was held earlier in the day" I was there for the Mars event with Oleg, and didnt even know there would be a tournament before the main MARS show. We showed up at the venue hours before the event and saw a bunch of fights with absolutely no one in the audience. I think that Hanssen guy won the tourney...
Good stuff. Thanks gents. Was Clash of the Dragon's a legit event? So I guess everyone agrees Rickson vs. Anjoh is the holy grail of MMA collecting? Or is it one of the following: Tito/Murray Riccio/Robin Rooftop NHB fighting with Coleman and Randleman ;-) DUNK1
