Pride era --> Machida era --> This so called 100th evolution of mma era -.-

honourable mention:



Sonnen's face after the silva fight.

I hate sonnen and was rooting for silva ll the way, but still its always sad to see someone fight so good only to lose in the fifth round.
LMAO...He had a TE level of 16:9:1 ... Feel sorry for that cheater all you want...

I felt sorry for Chuck after Rashad KO'D him....

For the me the Saddest moment involving the UFC was when they broke the news that Evan Tanner had passed. I had read about it, most likely on here, but just hearing them say it during an event really made it hit home.

As far as a moment within the UFC, I would have to go with Lyoto getting KO'ed by Shogun. I really thought that would be the fight to cement Lyoto's legacy, and lay to the rest the controversy of the first encounter.

I was thinking about Evan Tanner too. After he died I read all about him and those who knew him and how they described him. I felt a sense of loss. Then when they announced it on TV it was hard.

Fight-wise, some of the saddest have already been mentioned - Chuck ending his reign, Randy going into retirement the final time, BJ Penn getting beat by Diaz, and also the time Forrest Griffin was outclassed by Anderson.

In no particular order:

Lesnar beating down Mir in the rematch

Wanderlei getting KO'd (every time)

Shogun tapping to strikes

Rich Franklin getting displaced from 185

Every time Big Nog gets put away

Kenny Florian's post-fight conference after losing to Aldo

For me it was BJ losing the second fight to Edgar. That seems to be the beggining of the end of the dominate BJ Penn. I know he beat Hughes and drew with Fitch after that, but c'mon, we can all agree BJs dominate days are behind him unless he goes back to LW which we all know he will not do.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

It was the first time i ever watched the UFC live, UFC 38 Brawl at the hall, Ian Freeman vs Frank Mir. When Ian won it was probably the greatest moment of his life, but he also had just found out that his dad had just died literally straight after the fight.
