Nog vs Sapp

Im pretty surprised that Ranleman/Fedor was number one. It was an entertaining fight, but not anywhere near number one on my list.

Me too. It got 24 votes, compared to 8 votes for Tito vs. Shamrock. Scandalous!

Great list but i think you really need to add
Ryo Chonan vs Anderson Silva, Prob. the nicest submission ever !

This list doesnt work for me because the only fights listed all have big name fighters in them. There have been other very exciting/great fights out there that you could show. But for some reason some people just wanna see the big names...... lame

Davisty69 01-07-2010 12:50 PM

There were 80 fights listed off by the members if this forum, and then wittled down by the members of this forum.

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.
