They just swung away. However entertaining it was it's not a top five fight.
Agree!

I really don't know why this fight deserves to be on such a list it's the same with Guida vs. Sanchez it just wasn't a good fight at all! I still call them a brawl, nothing I enjoy watching!

Forrest and Bonnar helped the UFC and the whole MMA world a lot with this bout. I guess thats why I would say they can be on that list. But still the fight was rubbish!

Couture vs Gonzo or Sylvia should be on the list and in fact towards the top. This would go to show said new fan that MMA is a lot about heart, training, and technique rather than size and strength all the time.

The list wasn't just chosen, it was voted on in numerous threads and this was just the final 25. There were a lot more fights nominated than just these. Like I said earlier, Spike had the greatest 100 which was only UFC fights. They were all great and important fights.

This list was 1/4 of that one and included all of MMA. It is impossible to get all of the fights on the list of the best. We could make a top 500 if we really tried. I think this list is a very good one and the fights show what MMA is while also keeping the new fan interested in what is happening.

Thanks, I have explained this too many times. There are fights on this list that I disagree with, but it isn't my list. It is the forum's list.

As always, for anyone that wants the excel file of the original 80 fights before they were narrowed down, simply pm me with your email address and I'll shoot it to you.

It's all good, don't even sweat it. I agree about this place though. I have some friends that are into MMA, but no where near as much as me. I have to go on here to learn new stuff and debate others, otherwise the only person I can talk to about MMA is my wife, and she only really knows what I know. It gets old preaching to the choir.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask myself or any other moderators.

Yeah there were tons of fights that were voted on and this was what the forum voted as the top 25. There were plenty of great fights that were nominated though.
