2019 Topps UFC Knockout Hobby Box Break & Review

Enter the octagon at your own risk.  Be warned.  Two contestants will enter, but only one will come out victorious.  Que Queen’s Princes of the Universe song from the Highlander films… haha!

I can’t open a box of UFC Knockout without thinking about the first box of this stuff I opened back in 2015.  Waiting for me inside one of the mini-boxes was a Ronda Rousey/Miesha Tate Auto/Relic Booklet #’ed/5.  Absolutely nuts!

UFC Knockout is a staple when it comes to the Topps brand of UFC products.  Collectors look forward to it as it is very hit driven.  The 2019 incarnation has (4) packs per box.  Each pack comes with (2) hits.  That’s a total of (8) hits per master box.  Lots of opportunity for some interesting looking relics and autographs.

Most fans open boxes of UFC Knockout for the hits.  But there is a base set to put together.  (100) cards make up the base set.  Its a good mix of veteran fighters along with rookies.  I like the smokey design.  Three levels of parallels can be found – Green #’ed/149, Blue #’ed/88, Purple #’ed/25, Red #’ed/8, and Gold #’ed 1/1.  Outside of the base set there is one insert – UFC Fire.  The UFC Fire set consists of (24) total cards, and comes with that artistic Fire look we’ve seen in other products.

As I mentioned before this is a very hit driven set.  Hits include Knockout Autographs, Knockout Autograph Relics, Autograph Jumbo Fight Mat Relics, A.K.A. Ink, UFC Fire Autographs, UFC Champions Autograph Relic Books, Dual Autographed Jumbo Relic Books, Knockout Relics, Jumbo Fight Mat Relics, and One-Two Combination Relics.

The on-card autographs found in the Knockout Autographs, A.K.A. Ink, and UFC Fire Autographs sets looks extremely cool.  Not everything is signed on-card though.  Some are on stickers.

My box delivered quite the variety of hits.  Much more than just base-level cards.  A lot of color compared to what I’m use to seeing from this brand.  When opening this box things felt more exciting.

  1. One of my favorite products out there. Even without hitting a top tier name you can still feel like you did well, 2 former champion autos in this box is solid but I would be VERY stoked about my favorite up and comer Cynthia Calvillo! I really hope to see that one in a future contest, she is a beast!
