WHAT WE PULLED



Base (3): Nate Marquardt, Quinton Jackson, Miesha Tate



Each pack of UFC Knockout comes with three base cards. The design on the front is reminiscent to previous releases of Knockout whereas the back is a reminder of Finest. Knockout combines fighters from the UFC as well as Strikeforce.

Gold /88 (1): George Sotiropoulos



There are various parallels in Knockout. Not counting the Printing Plates, there are a total of five, each ranging at a different serial number. There is also an insert set called Ultimate Knockouts. Like the base set, it also has serial numbered parallels.

Triple Threads Gold Chan Sung Jung Triple Relic 1-color / 4-color (Korean Flag?) / 1-color /9



Each pack will yield either a relic or an autograph. There is a breakdown of 4 relics, 2 autograph and 2 auto/relics in a box. There are a multitude of types of relics and auto cards found in Knockout. Really hard to go into detail using only one pack.

FINAL THOUGHTS

No Rating due to lack of enough cards/packs to make a true opinion. However, it does look like a solid product, especially for MMA/UFC fans.
