Some of you got some strange fights you think are the best ever. For historical reasons a majority of you are wrong. If you are looking at the most dominating performances, you may be right about what fights you've said. When talking about the "Greatest Single Fight Performance Ever" you can't narrow that down.

My 12 fighter army is as follows:

Dan Henderson
Mac Danzig
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Anderson Silva
Fedor and Aleks
Mark Hunt
BJ Penn
Q. Rampage Jackson
Karo Parisyan
John Fitch
Frank Shamrock

Well, if you put it that way...

Heath Herring vs Jake O'Brien.

Heath Herring puts on the performance of a lifetime. The way he just lays there is amazing. He lays there like Steven Wright on Valium. If there ever was a single greatest performance for laying there, then Heath has taken the award.

That narrowin' it down enough?

I must say that fight was quite satisfying to watch, not sure if I enjoyed it as much as you though lol.

The Leben Vs Silva fight was also crazy, I never watched Silva b4 that fight.

LMAO "steven wright on valium"....THE GUY ON THE COUCH!....nice reference

I will say...

Penn's performance against Hughes the first time...he completely OWNED Hughes when Hughes was in his prime.

Sr. Pierre vs Trigg
Hughes vs. Trigg 2
Parisyan vs. Shonie Carter
Sanchez vs Diaz

People who said Diego vs. Karo wanna explain how that was only a great performance by one fighter? That was an extrememly close fight, neither one of those guys dominated.

Here we go again, ricefarmer never has anything good to add to a post, please take your ball and go home ricefarmer...please

btw: Hughes-Triggs is still one of my favorite overall performances, Hughes took a shot in the nuts and was almost choked out but hung in there, slammed Triggs to the ground and choked Triggs out again...

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?



Favorite Fighters:

Chuck Liddell
Rich Franklin
Diego Sanchez

The prompt was the "greatest fight performance" not the greatest fighter and those two put on a very good fight.

The SINGLE greatest fight performance. I was under the impression that meant one guy, I just thought if you were gonna pick one of Diego's great performances, his fight with Diaz was much more dominating and great IMO. He barely beat Karo so I didn't think that was all that "great".

Absolutely brilliant. Heath Herring's performance in that fight is one of my top five boldest strategies of all time. "OK Mr. Wrestler, I'm taken it to your world, I don't need my hands"....sure 15 minutes later he lost, but it was bold.

It will probably always be overshadowed by Salmon's risk that didn't pay off. In round 1 it was obvious that Salmon had the reflexes of a cat. I think he saw that kick coming a good half second before us mere mortals saw it and decided to break Rashad's foot with a head butt just to show how tough he was......Oops!

A groan of tedium escapes me...

It's like Sean Salmon watched Ken vs Fujita, and thought he's have an iron chin. His strategy of trying to break Rashad's leg with his head was inspiring, but it didn't pay off. I hear Salmon was then going to go for some sort of flying leglock as well. That Sean Salmon, always trying to be a risk taker.

I hear Heath Herring shits Ambien.
