Yeah, here was a fighter that at one point could've challenged for the title. Now he is a UFC exile who can barely win fights. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I may be alone in this and I'll construct a list when there is more time allotted to me but a Roy Nelson fight should be somewhere on the list. Either v JDS or Werdum. The man with the best chin since the chin was invented should be shown to new fans.

Yeah, I agree that Roy Nelson should be on at least one to be sure.

Griffin/Bonnar 1
Garcia/Zombie 1
Cruz/Faber 2
Machida/Shogun 1
Dos Santos/Nelson

Now I know there are some I have missed but I definitely had to add in Marius Zaromskis vs Seichi Ikemoto. That was one of the best(and Most Bizzare) Fights I have seen.
