old school ufc fights
 
some of my favorite old school fights

Royce Gracie 1st ufc

Wanderlei vs Sakuraba trilogy
http://www.stickam.com/viewMedia.do?mId=181142125

Wanderlei vs Jackson


Cro Cop fights


Cro Cop vs Fedor


Fedor vs Randleman

Rizzo vs Barnett 1

Gomi vs kawajiri


Tito vs Couture

Tito vs Chuck

Arlovski vs Sylvia 1 and 2

edit:
Wanderlei Silva vs Guy Mezger
http://v.ku6.com/show/JdzC2FyW5y8ZDbiu.html

Oleg Taktarov vs Tank Abbott - Another gruelling fight leaving both fighters flat on their backs from exhaustion after 10min + of fighting. A lot of heart shown from both men which would see Tank succumb in the end to a rear naked choke.

Marco Ruas vs Paul Varelans - When striking and grappling finally combined in equal measures to win a UFC championship (Steve Jennum doesn't count). A brutal display of the underappreciated leg kick in this fight with Paul Varelans tumbling down in theatric sky scrapper fashion to Marco Ruas' crisp Muay Thai technique.

Dan Henderson vs Carlos Newton - Back and forth fight that could've gone either way between two talented MMA fighters who both went on to be champions within the sport. Henderson displays his famous granite chin in this contest taking some nasty shots from Carlos, whilst grinding out a decision win.

Bas Rutten vs Tsuyoshi Kosaka - A late flurry from Bas steals the win in his favour with barely any time left after repeated Kosaka takedowns throughout the fight were stifling his offence.

Frank Shamrock vs Tito Ortiz - The fight that Shamrock retired as undefeated UFC middleweight champion after winning the battle of attrition with Tito, finishing him late in the fight with strikes.[/

You make the youtube tags like so:

[ YOUTUBE][ /YOUTUBE] (Remove the spaces)

And add the bit from after the equation-mark in the Youtube link in the middle - like so:

[ YOUTUBE] H_da2hOM9no[ /YOUTUBE] (Again, remove the spaces... Used your Silva-Jackson video as an example)
Yes, UFC does own Pride's name and their footage, but no Pride events have been held under Zuffa management, so I don't see how it's relevant mate :P

The Axe Murderer vs Guy mezger
http://v.ku6.com/show/JdzC2FyW5y8ZDbiu.html

Couldn't find a video of that one that would embed but, I think that Guy is absolutely the most under appreciated fighter of that era. He took
wandy
Chuck
Tito
Sakuraba

to school in their primes. But when it counted most, when the chances for greatness were in front of him, he couldn't close the deal. Still.... a true warrior.

guy mezger used to be good, he was also fighting in pancrase with ken shamrock. he had good fights in both pride and ufc. tito did get the better of him in the rematch though

Guy Incognito 10-04-2010 09:58 PM

Wandy fought a bit dirty in that fight against mezgher too. also the fedor vs cro cop fight is average it was just the build up to it that makes people consider it a classic

_RIVAL_ 10-04-2010 10:03 PM

Nah...

But those are some great old school PRIDE fights.
