Best Fights for Introducing People

Fellas,
I need some advice. I am looking to introduce a group of dudes to MMA and want your advice on the best 5-10 fights to get my hands on to show them.
What do you think?

I'd say Randy Couture versus Tim Sylvia, one of Royce's earlier fights, the Rampage slam, a JDS fight, and an Anderson Silva fight.

Oh yeah I forgot about that fight. Though I should note that Fedor and Big Nog fought three times. That list should mention the match number.

Do you want to show them some nice technical battles or some entertaining wars? Depends on what you want to show them.

You think Rampage vs Arona is one to show? Maybe if he wants to show some highlight finishes. You can find some sweet HL reels that are amazing. If you want to go that way I'll pass along some epic HLs. Lombard, Shogun, Wand, Erik Silva, Fedor and plenty others have some great ones. Or if you want to go with submissions you can look up Aoki, Gracie, Nog and others. You can show them some wars like Chandler-Alvarez, Hendo-Shogun, Bonnar-Griffin, Chuck-Wand and others. Just depends on what you want to show them.
