Chuck Liddell vs Randy COtoure
Mino/Nog vs Bob Sapp
Mino vs Fedor
Royce Gracie vs Kimo
Rickson vs "Zulu"...
Cotoure vs Belfort

joe lewis vs. max schmeling. those MMA champs may be great, but how many of them can say that they defeated hitler's champion?

I love Royce vs Yoshida. I just wish they would've let it finish. I didn't realize until rewatching it yesterday that Yoshida ended with a full mount!

I'm gonna fight, fight, fight, fight, fight and destruct the world.

Do you believe that modern NHB fighters fall into the greatest fights in martial history?!

Maybe a few of them, but COME ON!

Man there are a lot of fights that are better than that:

Mel Gibson vs. Jet Li in Lethal Weapon 4.

Bruce Willis verses that German dude in Hard to kill.

Keanu Reaves vs. Agent Smith in the Matrix.

Superman vs. Lex Luther

Batman vs. Mr. Freeze.

Don't you guys watch anything other than sport fight shows?

real life fights and movie fights are very different things, movie wise there is the usual jet li ,jackie chan (and of course 'rowdy' roddy piper Vs keith david, in they live)
in real fights do you for one second (and dont be biased in the usual way..) that the listed UFC/pride fights will be assessed in the collective conciousness in 30 years time as 'great fights' the way that Ali's fights are? or even Tysons early period?

TCDD: Oh, really? I could've sworn they were the same thing.

I'm thinking that a precious few of the modern NHB fights will be remembed as the greates in martial history. And if they do, it will be based less on the merit of the fight than the fact that it was recorded on video.
