Plot: What’s it about?
Most high profile fights in the UFC involve trash talk, but few fighters have taken it to the level that Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson have. The bad blood between the two was more than evident when the two coached against each other on The Ultimate Fighter, with constant back and forth banter. But Jackson backed out of the original fight, which only fueled Evans to new levels of trash talk. A new fight was set months later, which headlines this event, UFC 114. The words have been vicious, but which man would actually back up his trash talk inside the octagon? Ten other fights are also present, with warriors like Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Diego Sanchez, Todd Duffee, Michael Bisping, and others. UFC 114 has a solid undercard and a heated main event, not much else fight fans could want.

Video: How does it look?
The event is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. This is a clean, crisp presentation that captures the event just as you’d see on television. Of course this isn’t as refined as the high definition broadcast, but it still looks quite good. The colors are natural, the lighting looks perfect, and no errors at all creep in.
Audio: How does it sound?
The audio is solid, but won’t dazzle the ears. The comments from the broadcast team are loud and clear, as are in-fight elements such as corner men, the crowd, and the referee. Not a lot else we could want from the audio here. A Spanish commentary option is also available.
Supplements: What are the extras?
