    Toss up between Penn/Hughes and Randleman/Crocop.

    Couture/Ortiz should be on there.

    You can vote on multiple fights. And no if you look at the odds makers Couture was the eventual favorite in that match up. How do I know, I was there for the fight and actually laid down the bet.

    I'd have to say Randleman over CroCop was the strangest out of all the options. Randleman really had no shot (no pun) at winning in my eyes and it still seems insane he was able to floor Mirk with a looping haymaker.

    As an aside the Frank Shamrock and Ian Freeman wins weren't the most stunning or unpredictable. Even if they were percieved as underdogs, which I wouldn't really get, neither was greatly outmatched and both won in ways they're known to win.

    Couture and Belfort, because no one expected it and no one gave Couture a chance in hell.

    Randleman def Cro Cop being in first shocks me. A lot of people gave Kevin a reasonable chance, unless of course you mean the method Randleman won by. That KO was pretty unexpected.

    Coleman beating anybody of merit. Hes a beast, but he doesn't have the cardio to keep moving that juiced up body.

    What about Liddell beating Randleman? People actually Booed when Chuck won that fight. I realize it was in Randleman's hometown, but still. I think it was a real shock how that one ended.

    I was surprised when Nino Schembri knocked out Sakuraba. He was getting his ass handed to him up to that point.
    Mauro: Coming into the ring now is Giant Silva. 7 foot 2, 385 lbs, making his debut in Pride.
    Bas: Wow, that is one big guy!
    Mauro: He must have an enormous Johnson!
    Bas: Ur…I suppose.
    Mauro: What are his keys to victory here in the Pride ring tonight?
    Bas: Well I think he needs to use his reach, avoid Heaths takedowns, and try to use his size to overpower him.
    Mauro: I mean, imagine the size of that thing!
    Bas: Now Heath is coming into the ring…
    Mauro: Do women really like them that big? Doesn’t it hurt?
    Bas: I really wouldn’t know.
    Mauro: I’m starting to feel a little insecure.
    Bas: Let’s just talk about the fight.
    Mauro: You’re right, el Basito. What are Heaths keys to winning here tonight. What does he have to do? What are his strategies for emerging victorious here in the Saitama Super Arena tonight?
    Bas: Well, the first thing…
    Mauro: My wife says she doesn’t like them too big, that it’s all about how you use it.
    Bas: That’s not what she told me.

    A lot of these fights I didn't get to see until after the fact. I actually watched Randleman vs. Cro Cop without knowing the result, and was expecting a quick CC KO, which is why I was shocked by it.

    Also, I didn't get into watching MMA until 2002-2003, so I watched almost all of these matches WAY after they had been fought.

    So Cro Cop Randleman fight by MMA greenhorn default.
