UFC 2: No Way Out
UFC 2: No Way Out (later renamed UFC 2 or The Ultimate Fighting Championship 2) was a mixed martial arts (MMA) event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on March 11, 1994, at Mammoth Gardens in Denver, Colorado.
The event was seen live on pay-per-view in the United States, and was later released on home video.
UFC 2 featured a sixteen-man tournament format, the first and only one in UFC's history, with the winner receiving $60,000. The tournament had no weight classes or weight limits. Matches had no time limit or rounds, therefore no judges were used.
Competitors could only win a match by submission, by the opponent's corner throwing in the towel, or by knockout. The event marked the first appearance of referee "Big" John McCarthy, who was until 2007 a UFC staple.
The event featured fifteen separate fights, of which only the last eight were shown on the live pay-per-view broadcast and home video versions.
