This was done before those two fights took place. I bet they would have made the list for voting.

There's a new #1. This needs to be updated.

Fan or not, rematch or not. Best fight ever.

2nd most strikes landed by one fighter of any match in UFC history.

The MW championship implications, pre-fight hype, UFC's greatest fighter gets anhilated for 23 minutes and comes back ... all that.

Silva getting rocked so many times, Sonnen getting bloodied up with a big gash....Silva getting taken off his feet with strikes to the chin and solid takedowns, Sonnen in full guard landing strikes clean strikes, Silva with shots from the bottom, both constantly exchanging.

The fight had no losers in the eyes of fans of either fighter, cause wherever you were, you probably had to get off your feet and say holy f-in $hit 10 times.

The stand-up, wrestling, the BJJ, the non-stop action - Even if (rather when) there's the rematch, I don't see that fight being this great.

I'm sure we will re-do this list sometime in the future, but we're not just going to add fights here and there... so stop bringing up fights that happened after this list was created. knubbes




What a stud

cool list

the biggest thing i noticed, and it was pretty much unavoidable, is that established fans understand who guys like fedor, cro cop, nog, wandy, chuck, randy, etc, etc, are, and that makes their fights more important to them

a newer fan wouldn't know those guys, so a fight like fedor/cro cop, which had huge importance to any longtime mma fan, wouldn't mean much to a new fan, especially since the fight itself is merely good, nothing spectacular.

i could name a bunch of fights that could have made the list, but as its already been said a thousand times, the list is only 25 fights long and mma has hundreds of amazing fights. penn/stevenson, couture/ortiz and anderson/hendo do seem like the odd fights out in the list though. none were anything special in my eyes

Talking

This is only off the top of my head.I have all the UFC's on dvd and there are some other good posts on here.A few fights that stick out to me.

Belcher vs Akiyama
Akiyama vs Leben
Foster vs Story
Stout vs Fisher{1st or 2nd}
Penn vs St Pierre 1
Quarry vs Credeur

Realize some of these selections are more brawls, but my list is more just to highlight the toughness of a UFC fighter.It is good to get new fans aquainted with the UFC through fights with good standup.Then slowly introduce them to the finer, equally important, points of MMA such as jiu jitsu, grappling, and more importantly octagon control.

To be fair part of showing fights to a new fan is also EDUCATING them on the greats as well. If it can be a good/exciting fight WHILE helping them learn about the legends of the sport its called "Killing two birds with one stone."

I'm not interested in creating a bunch of new "fans" who are only interested in the fighters of today, and would have ZERO respect for the guys of yesteryears. Too many of those "fans" already.

Excite and Educate, thats the goal my man.

take them through the development

I think what I would like to do is sit them down and take them the story - show them half a dozen fights from UFC 1-4 - culminating in Royce vs Sevren! and then try and represent the different influences of wresting / take down defense and re-establishment of the importance of striking - the recognition of boxing as one of the most effective striking disciplines - culminating in the importance of a genuine cross-discipline mix of martial arts

that's what I would do anyway...
