GREAT list, I love this. 100% worth the effort and I will be saving this to a few servers and my personal machine, I recommend lots of others do it too.

Shogun vs Rampage IMO should have made the list but all fights are great!

edit: lol @ "John" Fitch. Mythbusters made that same mistake.

awesome list and thanks for throwing that together. I disagree with showing a new fan the Bonnar/Griffin fight, although it was one of the best fights I've ever seen. A new fan may think it's too barbaric or bloody haha

EDIT: That is of course by new fan you mean someones dad who recently started enjoying spike tv re-runs of fights...

I still reckon Torres v Mizugaki was one of the best, most entertaining fights there is. But nice list compiled there, agree with most of them.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig
