There are a lot of matchups I would have liked to see.

JDS
Big Foot
Roy Nelson
Crocop
Gonzaga
Struve
Barnett
Fedor

and yes...MIR III. When people talk about bad blood. There is no doubt both fighters wanted to hurt each other badly.

But seriously.

I sadistically enjoyed his losses. Good riddance.

Don't miss him at all. He was arrogant and wasn't a very good fighter.

I do. Dude had a personality, and not in the typical WWE way which a lot of people hate him for but others like Sonnen are actually more guilty of.

Was also a great fighter and achieved so much for having so little experience.

Hmm... kind of but not really.

He wasn't the same after the diverticulitis. Not that I think he would have held on to that title for much longer but he clearly never fully recovered from his disease. Retiring was probably the best decision for him.

It's interesting because the first time I seen em on WWE I was like man...he's an absolute beast of a monster. IMO not a true MMA fighter although an anomaly. He demonstrated that in modern MMA still, athleticism and brute strength can get you pretty far. Imagine if he was a black belt in BJJ. Problems is all I can say.

All in all I'm glad The Reem took care of em though. That was the match up I wanted to see VERY BADLY along with Fedor. How would Brock fare against someone his own size. Well, we got our answer.

To answer the OPs question. One guy would love to fight em and that's Frank Mir. He's going to have to spend the rest of his days knowing Brock got the last laugh.

Now we got Batista.

His career was just like sex with me - Fast, furious and nobody really appreciates it once it's done

On a serious note, I miss the feel of his fights because it was a big deal. He also accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, though the division was kinda thin back then.

I won't miss his personality though
