Well that's certainly true. I think a panel of people should make a list of the best fights. That way they are the best.

#1 by far should be Griffin vs Bonnar. I think that was one of the sickest stand up fights i've ever seen. An all out war. I think any GSP or silva fight also. and Brock vs heath herring. i think that was one of the best displays of raw power i've seen by a fighter.

I'm sorry but even though Griffin versus Bonnar 1 was a great fight there have been much better ones since then. It's important in that it basically launched the UFC to mainstream. Other then that it is nowhere near what it should be.

??? This is an awesome fight to show a new fan, it shows an excellent display of grappling and rather than simply jostling for position McDonald is trying to keep his arm from snapping behind his back, it shows excellent technique whilst still being interesting to a layman.

I would recommend whoever is incharge of this list give it a watch, it is probably the only fight my girlfriend has watched fully with interest and amazingly the best parts are the grappeling.

5 Star recommended from me.

Too much effort. My point is you didn't actually pick fun fights to watch, but rather fights that had some sort of meaning behind them. That, to me, defeats the purpose.

And also, I think you meant to put Maynard-Edgar 2 & 3, not 1 & 2. The first time they fought Maynard won.




What a stud
