Close epic battle or clinic in domination?

Hi guys, I was wondering do you prefer a close epic battle where the 2 fighters are very close and put on a great show with a climactic decision pending?

Or

A total domination with a fighter at the top of his game pulling all kinds of rad striking and/or submissions to easily overcome an opponent?

Which do you prefer and why? Use fights to illustrate points of view if need be.

epic battle all the way. If I order a PPV and the main event or fight I wanted to see is a domination I feel let down.

Epic battle. There are very few fighters that I'm looking to see get squashed.

Either/or. I'd love an epic, closely contended war, as long as it's not between 2 dominant wrestlers, but I also love watching GSP, Silva or Penn rip people apart.

I enjoy watching both, the epic battles have you on your feet but watching a really good domination by GSP/BJ/A.Silva is entertaining in its own way, You are watching some of the best fighters since the UFC was created, and even when all of those 3 retire... I dont think anyone will match their legacy anytime soon.

its always fun to watch legacies / legends of the sport

Depends. If a fighter I like is fighting, Id like to see him win via domination. However I prefer epic battles over domination...if that makes sense.

I prefer close fights. I would actually rather watch two decent guys battle it out then watch a great fighter make a fool of somebody.

Griffin/Bonnar 1 was a great fight even though at the time neither guy was great.

There are a few instances in which a total domination is a real pleasure to watch, such as Penn vs. GSP II, Penn vs. Sanchez, and all kinds of other awesome beatdowns I could mention. But for the most part I think everyone prefers to see the back-and-forth battle. 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.
