I'm surprised nobody mentioned these:

Schembri TKO Sakuraba - this was back when Sak was dominant, and Schembri was a straight submission fighter with ZERO standup skills. Probably the most shocking upset in the history of Pride.

Herring Submission Erickson - the famous "come on fatboy!!" fight. Erikson was a huge. unstoppable GnPer back at this time and Herring pulled it off.

Frye TKO Goodridge - this one shocked me for a number of reasons. While Frye was a great fighter, Goodridge had absolutely blasted his opponents leading up to this fight and was a bigger & much stronger man. This was actually a really good fight.

Shamrock Submission Kimo - most people would think this is kind of wierd to call an upset, but Kimo had already made a huge name for himself at this point. Kimo was also much bigger than Ken and one of the more well rounded fighters of the pioneering days of the UFC. Shamrock had a lot of credentials as well of course, but looking back on it this would be like Silva beating Cro Cop for the OWGP...which would have been a big time upset all things realistically considered.


All of those were really big upsets in my book. They're all pretty interesting fights to watch too.

yeah but he was dead after that second round, he could barely stand! I like BJ too, he is a great fighter, but he needs to start taking it serious again and work on cardio if he wants to make it back to the top. he really hasnt looked good past the 2nd round in his last two fights... i hope it was an eye opener for him and he comes back hard! i would love to see that.

I agree with you on the cardio training becuase he did not look too great after the 2nd when he fought GSP.

But, I think (if the rib story is true) and he wouldn't have seperated his rib that he could have taken Hughes out in the 3RD.

I think a 3rd fight would be great.
