Which UFC fights would you say are the Best of 2008?

I've been buying alot of UFC and PRIDE DVD's this past month (mainly because the local stores around here have been selling them for 5.00!) The new DVD I just bought (paid a little more then $5.00 for this one. Not a complete cheap ass you know) is the UFC: Best of 2007. It included fights like Gabe Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop, Wandy vs. Chuck, Huerta vs. Guida, so on and so forth.

So whats the point of this thread! Well, were about 9 months into 2008 (with three more months to go) and we have seen some pretty good fights in the UFC. Which fights would you say was the very best this year (you can name more then one. Hell, you can name 20 for all I care).

Nogueira/Sylvia for me, definitely the most dramatic fight of the year, I could totally feel Nogueira coming back and snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

Kawajiri/Alvarez and Alvarez/Hansen are the only DREAM fights I'd put ahead of Nogueira showing the heart of a champion (again).

Wiman v Tavares has been my favourite fight so far this year and I'm fairly certain Pellegrino v Tavares will be my favourite of the year.
