The IVC was a Vale Tudo promotion which ran 13 events from 1997 to 1999 in Brazil. While MMA in North America at the time was running towards ever greater regulation, the IVC reveled in its renegade reputation, pitting bare-knuckle fighters against each other in single round, 30minute no-holds barred brawls inside a boxing ring. Nevertheless, MMA luminaries like Chuck Liddell, Wanderlei Silva and Dan Severn competed in IVC. Now, almost two decades on, UFC FIGHT PASS gives subscribers the chance to witness 1990s Brazilian Vale Tudo fighting for themselves.
All 13 of the classic IVC shows from Brazil are now live on UFC FIGHT PASS here:
