Okay This Has Been Bothering Me For A While Now.

It's regarding the "Top 25 fights to show a new MMA fan"

Mirko Cro Cop Vs Fedor Emeilianenko

Why the hell is it on there? I watched it again yesterday which is about the third time i have seen it to try and understand what is even remotely good about this fight and i can't find anything and it pisses me off that people consider this one of the greatest fights of all time just because of the hype behind it.

Seriously there is nothing about that fight that says this is what MMA is about. it consists of Cro Cop doing his best Punching bag impression and then Fedor lay and praying him while occasionally landing some good GnP and if that qualfies for a great fight then cro cop vs Schuab should be on there.

So could someone please explain why you would show this to a friend who is interested in getting into MMA and why it is considered one of the greatest fights off all time?

Not that great of a fight but it was between two pioneers. Can't blame people for ranking it high.

doesn't matter if its with two of the greatest fighters at that time, new fans wouldn't know that and it might leave a sour taste in their mouth.

Don't pay attention to Giantssuckballs op. It might not be the best fight but it's a good idea to introduce new fans to the glory days of MMA.

There might be arguments about PRIDE vs UFC back then but that era will probably be remembered like the late 60's, early 70's of the NFL.

A year ago I didn't know who Sakuraba was. That's screwed up on all sorts of levels I'm all for educating the newbs

Care to elaborate! Why do you think this is a great fight? I don't think it was bad but it wasn't great!

IMO, The reason I think this fight was rated so high was because Fedor's fans loved the fact that he was so dominant. Keep in mind, the Fedor love was threw the roof back in those days and for him to so easily control Cro Cop (Second Best HW at the time) like he did just added to his mystique. Thus making it one of the greatest fights of all time!
