Well if the goal is to show a new mma fan what mma is all about, then a fight needs to have a great representation of a stand-up game as well as great wrestling and jujitsu, and if that's the textbook type fight that we're going for, then i'm very surprised that Nogueira v Barnett (1&2) didn't even make it to the list never mind the top 3, a fight which showcased great stand up and also great wrestling and jujitsu, very surprised that its not there...

What do u guys think...?

I think you should look at fights that consisted of every part of a Mixed Martial Arts fight and not just a wrestling match or boxing match. A lot of fights are mentioned just because of their fast pace and adrenaline fuelled exchanges, not necessarily a good representation of MMA (stand-up - kicks & knees, elbows & punches and ground - jujitsu & wrestling). But i suppose that's what some people enjoy...

Nog vs Barnett 2 is also one of my favourites! But mostly because Nog won it this time round!

Also i enjoy the really technical fights, or the fights where technique beats brawling as i'm not a big fan of fights where people just brawl without any technique, thats why the fight between Crocop and Silva was one of may favs too. Crocop just dominated the stand-up beautifully by his superior footwork it was amazing the way he moved from one side of Silva to the other and Silva was like what the hell!? And he was throwing straight jabs to Silva's looping punches which weren't reaching him. The pinnacle of Crocop's career, a classic.

Don't forget you also have to throw in ridiculously exciting fights to keep that new fan interested long enough to learn about all of the aspects of MMA.

AND, you also need to throw in the some of the great epic battles that show why certain fighters are revered above all else. If you had a guy getting into boxing, you would have to show them at least one Tyson fight, so you understand why he was so feared.

Or like Chuck/Wandy or Sanchez/Guida shows how some fighters leave it all in the cage!

Yeah, I'm cool with that. I just don't think all the fights have to be technical battles that show all aspects of the sport. That is why you have 25 because it allows you to show the different aspects through different fights.

Well like I said before, Spike had that top 100 UFC fights and they were all important and awesome! That doesn't even include anything outside of the UFC so making a top 25 covering all of MMA is very difficult.

I think that this list is more than acceptable.

agreed alot of new fans dont know what kind of a killer Crocop was when he was on top of his game. and most only remeber the high kick( they were memorable though) but the versatility he showd with his left hand in the open wieght touney was some of the hardest cleanest puching ive seen in mma !

p.s. this reputation thing is kind silly. i get a bad rep cause someone dosnt agree with me or dosnt like me thinking there hero is over rated ?

It happens, but it should work itself out overtime. Also, sometimes the way you call the hero overrated is what gets you the neg rep
