Here at Mania we have had favorite fighter lists, most hated list, and lists about the best TnA. However, I have never seen a thread about our favorite fights. What fights left you amazed and just loving MMA that much more? What do you look for in a fight? Do you like brawls? Are you more into skill and technique? Or does there need be a puddle of blood for you to feel you got your money's worth? Also, does there need to be a backstory like in Fedor v. Cro Cop? Or can it just be two guys that know very little about each other, Garcia v. Korean Zombie. We all have different taste and more than likely can appreciate one fight more more than another.
Here is a list of some of my favorite fights-
- GSP v. BJ Penn 1
- Fedor v. Cro Cop
- Carwin v. Lesnar
- Shogun v. Machida 1
- Leonard Garcia v. Chan Sung Jung
- Chris Leben v. Sexyama
- Melvin Manhoef v. Cyborg Santos (the other guy)
- GSP v. Matt Serra 2 (for obvious reasons)
- BJ Penn v. Diego Sanchez (I laughed all night)
- Shogun v. Lil Nog
I have many other favorite fights, but then the list would not be a list, but a short novel. Some fights on this list were not very technical but heart was never lacking. What are your favorite fights my fellow maniacs?
