    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Favorite all time MMA fight and why?

    In this thread you will give your favorite MMA match and why,

    --- and if you can find video in the day and age of UFC controlling and suing anyone who shows Pride or UFC fights you get extra points.---

    The one that comes to mind for me is Carlos Newton VS Sakuraba.

    The grappling in it is off the hook, you can see the strategy, move and counter move clearly.

    Also the respect shown before, during and after the fight was great to see.

    It's a fight I can watch over and over again and one I would have no problem showing anyone as an example of what's best in MMA.

    - Any of the fights from Pride Bushido 9...they were all very competitive and displayed a great variety of techniques, be it standup, clinch, or ground. But the ones I liked in particular were Mach/Pulver, Kawajiri/Gomi, Azerado/Gomi, and Mach/Hansen...

    ....Or Mach ;o)

    Either way...if I literally had to choose one fight...it'd be Karo Parisyan/Nick Diaz from UFC 49...b/c to me, that sorta epitomized the beginning of the "hungry young, go for broke UFC fighter that's willing to take risks"

    Pretty hard to pick just the one....err

    Cro Crop vs Remi Bojansky

    Sakuraba vs The gracies we're all pretty entertaining..

    Sakuraba has been in a few of my favourite fights. Anyone remeber UFC'S Ultimate Japan tournamant?

    The tournament was intended for heavyweights, and Sakuraba, at 183 pounds, was nearly twenty pounds beneath the UFC's 200 pound designation for the weight class. Reporting himself as 203 pounds in order to gain entry, Sakuraba was paired off against the 250 lb Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blackbelt Silveira.

    I remember they actually fought twice in the tournament (for some reason) they were both good fights.

    Let me put it this way

    If you had to choose ONE fight to show to a non MMA fan what you love about MMA which one would it be.

    JUST ONE!!!

    cro cop vs big nog would probably be the one i show to people new to MMA. It was technical, exciting, loads of punches and kicks to the face, and had a rocky-esque come from behind victory to it. Furthermore, it shows the exploits of a quick, clean ground game. Won't have to worry about new people complaining about somebody just "lying" on top of the other guy.

    I have to mention Tyson griffin vs Guida though as a close second (the only reason being that it went to decision, and a controversial one at that).

    It's very TUF noobish, but Griffin vs. Bonnar at TUF 1 finale is a pretty good match to show to a newbie.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Frye vs. Takayama. It's more awesome than 300, Army of Darkness, and Bloodsport run through a blender!
