Biggest Upset?

UFC has had a lot of big upsets this year. GG vs. Cro-Cop and Serra vs. GSP are two examples.
What fight in UFC history do you feel was the biggest upset?
IMO, it was Penn vs. Pulver I

Petey Williams head kick on Mark "The Hammer" Coleman was a huge upset. Here is this 22 year old kid making his UFC debut on 2 weeks notice beating the returning former HW Champion.

Yep, that was pretty big at the time...not too many people were giving Petey a chance.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

I was watching my recently purchased UFC 68 DVD and the first special feature had a cool feature on "The Natural" and his three upsets on Vitor, Chuck, and Tito. I think the Vitor upset was the biggest though.

What about the Joe Lauzon vs. Jens Pulver fight? .. When that fight first happened, I thought Joe had absolutely no chance.

I have to agree.

Brock Lesnar will be the #1 ranked fighter, and will be best fighter ever.

Favorite fighters:

HW = Lesnar
LHW = Arona / RAMPAGE
MW = Filho
WW = Koscheck
LW = Ruediger
