I've been an MMA fan for about a year and half and only recently have I been starting to get really interested in the technical aspect. So stand-up or ground, what's the most technical fight you've seen?

From what I've seen my choice would be Kazushi Sakuraba vs Carlos Newton at Pride 3.

Mir vs Nog?

or any Sam Stout fight

Thats a hard one. I suggest watching GSP even though he dominates, He is just so good in almost every aspect of MMA technically.

Its really rare for there to be two amazingly good technical fighters.

I call that one the prettiest fight ever and keep it ready to pop in if anyone shows the slightest interest. Some others in pride you would like are Guy mezger vs sakuraba and Guy Mezger vs wanderlie Silva, that's wandy's best technical fight. It was all over the place and Guy was giving him a kickboxing lesson right up till he got knocked out. Big Nog vs Ricco Rodriguez is a great heavyweight technical bout.

In the UFC Sanchez vs Diaz comes to mind as an exiting technical match but often to good technicians counter each other and make a snoozer.

Machida vs Sokoudjou UFC 79 - one of the most under rated fights of all time, should be rated as one of the best 10 fights of all time, was the bets fight of the night easy even when Chuck Liddell vs Wanderlei Silva was on the same card, well was obvious which fight stole the hype due to name recognition.

It's uncommon to see MMA fighters who excel technically in every aspect of the sport. Usually, there are guys who may excel in one martial art but are just average at best in other aspects. Guys like GSP and Anderson Silva are exceptions to this rule, obviously.
I honestly think the first Machida-Shogun fight was possibly the best/most technical standing fight ive seen in the UFC.
