Just for fun I’ll mention some such as the Stout vs. Fisher fights, Quarry vs. Credeur, Lawlor vs. Aaron Simpson, and most recently Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Stephan Bonnar.
quarry vs credeur was awesome and you could throw in nog vs randy

Epic battle. I've always been a fan of competitive fights.

Domination's are not good fights. They're just good performances.

Excellent way of putting it.

For me it depends on who is fighting. If its one of my favorite fighters, I prefer a beatdown so I dont get all worked up and nervous and can just enjoy the fight.

If its two of my favorite fighters facing each other OR its two guys I dont particularly care for, then I prefer a close epic battle.

Its actually interesting that there is a thread for this because I often found myself saying "I dont really care who wins because (I really like both guys/I dont particularly care for either guy) but I just want a close competitive fight" and I didnt realize it until I read this thread.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I love watching close epic battles. However, when a fighter I really love absolutely desimates his opponent, I can't help but smile all the way through. It's alot easier on the nerves that way.

Shame all the recent epic battles haven't really involved cream of the crop fighters. I would give my right nipple for a full 5 round epic title battle. Shogun vs Machida came close but the last 2 rounds were poo.

that would be the closest for me but if i saw the rampage vs hendo fight i probably would have been on the edge of my seat the entire fight and than would have went absolutly nuts the way rampage finished but i wasn't into MMA back than

I liked the last 2 rounds. I really liked that fight. Expect a re-watch thread about the show here soon.

Shogun vs Machida was insanely close. I can't stand when people say that Shogun was robbed. He wasn't. Machida won that fight. He just didn't get to be as dominant as he normally was. Great performance from Shogun.

I like close epic battles. I mean I love watching GSP own whoever he fights. But fights like Chuck/Wandy are definitely my favorite.
