Well said, i think this is a great list for new fans who wanna see what this sport is about, however i still feel you need to add Chonan vs Silva......was it one of the eighty?

actually is wasn't. There are several fights that I feel have been passed over, cyborg vs. Manhoef in particular, but it wouldn't be an objective list if I were to take out fights that were voted on, and put in my own picks.

How about you make your list and post it for us, and then we can judge whether or not your list is "lame."

Also, wouldn't you rather show big name fights to a new fan? would you really want to show them some obscure fights that only a few people know about, with fighters you will probably never see again? Not me. I'd rather show them fighters that are still relevant in todays' MMA.
First off I never said the list was lame. I think it's lame that people only want to see fights that have big names in them. It is these same people that complain all the time about "boring " cards.

I think the list should show great fights, but who is in them doenst matter all that much.

My puter's been bust for the last couple of months so I didn't get to vote . It's a pretty good list though IMO with maybe a few exceptions or omissions.

I wouldn't have had the Hendo v Andy fight in there (which I thought was a pretty boring fight) especially when Andy v Franklin I & II didn't make the cut (which seems crazy, as they were both awesome fights). Sakuraba and Aoki should have definitely been on the list too (though I'm probably biased there). I would have liked to have seen Shamrock vs Frye, Rampage vs Arona and Zaromskis's last 3 fights on there also.

Flavours of the month
Diaz brothers
Gomi
Cub Swanson
Aoki
Matt Brown
Ian McCall
Matt Riddle

Good point, i personally think scott smith vs pete sell should have been #1, great example of skill, heart and respect among fighters.
