I completely forgot about Sadollah/Harris. I knew I was forgetting a Sadollah fight. That knee was brUtal and Gerald's slams were ridiculous. Looks like I'm going to have to fix this..

I agree that season 7 had the best fights, not just the Sadollah fights too. The majority of the fights were solid.

Clementi/Carter was pretty good, forgot about that one too.

I thought Cope/Torres was absolutely painful, painful to watch. I was so relieved to see the McGillivray/Bentley fight after that.
