I think its this kinda thing that p!sses people off. Just a stab in the dark.

And you only say these things because youre sat safely behind your keyboard. You wouldnt speak to the guy face to face like that, so why do it on the net?

for the record, I do talk to people like that more in real life. In real life they can tell I'm just joking around and messing with them. It's hard to convey that on the net so I avoid it.

Griffin v Bonnar 1 by a mile.

If that fight didn't happen, MMA wouldn't by what it is today and maybe not ever. That fight alone shot MMA into mainstream and created Zuffa millions in the years afterward and made UFC in to a monster company.

Back on subject, I don't know how many times I've heard dana say that bonnar/griffin is the most significant fight in UFC history. I guess because if he says it, then it is.

I remember watching it, back before either of these guys were big, and were the finalists on a reality show that I thought was horrible. I remember watching them and thinking, man what a couple of cans! Look at these fools swing away at each other with absolutley no technique whatsoever, they can't even finish each other they are so bad!

But since according to Dana it made the UFC mainstream, then he would probably know.

Edit: just to avoid a shitstorm, I don't think that they are cans anymore. Just wanted to clear that up

It wasn't just griffin v bonner alone. I think the whole tuf1 show helped, can't have a big fight without the drama before but yes I agree if you're talking about bringing it to mainstream and a house hold name.

The most important fight in UFC history was Randy Couture vs. Chuck Liddell 2. This fight made a star of Chuck Liddell among the new fans. Because of his star power he made the UFC alot of money in the process.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Agreed. This was the first time I heard friends who never watched MMA really start to talk about it.

Although as much as it makes me cringe I would put Tito vs Ken fights, Griffin vs Bonnar, and one that maybe a lot of people wont agree with me on Tito vs Griffin. I think though the Griffin/Bonnar fight had a hand in putting UFC on the map I think the Griffin/Tito fight actually legitimized it and turned TUF into something that hardcore and casual fans embraced.
