Greatest octagon performances?

You know those performances that absolutely define a fighter for you, the nights where a fighter looks like nothing can stop him from winning.

One of the greatest performances I think I saw in the UFC had to be Forrest Griffin in his fight with Shogun. Forrest just fought like a man possessed, he made the #1 LHW in the world look like he hadn't fought a day in his life. It was a competitive fight for a round, but then Forrest showed true grit and ended up pulling off the upset.

Hughes vs Trigg 2 comes to mind. I think this fight is what solidified Matt as one of the true greats. That was the very first PPV I ordered and to see that was incredible. Brink of defeat to an unreal finish, how can ya beat that.

St.Pierre/Fitch. Jon Fitch had never been manhandled before until GSP did it for 5 rounds straight. He dominated a guy who had never been beaten and had fought top notch fighters.

To me this solidified GSP as the truly dominant fighter in his weight, and right up there with Anderson for best fighter in the UFC.

Randy v Tim Sylvia. I cannot get over how great his performance was, the way he just mixed the rounds up. I watch the 3rd round over and over again

GSP vs Fitch is a good one. It really showed that he lives up to the hype built around him. He may not be demolishing everyone like A.Silva is, but that's because I feel the competition is stiffer in 170. Fitch was a beast with the heart of five lions, one for each round!

Randy vs Tito is another good one that comes to mind for me. Totally took Tito out of his game and pounded then spanked him! How can you not say that's a great performance!

Forrest vs Bonnar both fighters never gave up and kept trying for all three rounds. This defined both fighters for me.

Yep, easily. Hughes came back from a nasty nut shot, sick GnP and an RNC attempt(s). Hughes was not losing that fight. That made Hughes legendary, in my opinion.

Speaking of Hughes, he completely smoked Sakurai and actually showed some decent stand-up in that fight. Hayato, a great fighter, couldn't do much of anything except a punch and an illegal knee. That fight was all Matt Hughes. Nasty performance from the greatest UFC champion ever.

okay, i'm going to hug some nuts here

jardine's performance against liddell was awesome...and that is what jardine is capable of...being very elusive and landing effective, damaging strikes

sherk against hughes...yeh, yeh he lost that fight...but lets realize this....sherk wasn't a full time fighter then, he was fighting a man who was at the peak of his career, probably 15lbs heavier than himself, w/ a better wrestling background.....sherk muscled 2 rounds out of 5..and after that fight, i gained a whole new level of respect from him....

The single greatest octagon performance of all time was Frank Vs Tito. I know it, Damone knows it, you all know it.
