Erik Morales vs Marcos Maidana
Straight out of a movie. As much as I have strayed from boxing in favor of MMA, this sport is like an ex-girlfriend who can still get you hot and bothered from time to time. I know this will probably get moved to the boxing forums. But dammit, these Tap Out kids need to watch this fight and see what MMA as a sport should aspire to one day. Heart, skill, strategy, and pure balls. No safe fighting, no point riding, no "grinding out" a win. This was high danger, high intensity, and high drama from the opening bell to the end. Forget the Alphabet Titles, politics, and bullshit. When a fight like this happens, none of that seems to matter. This goes right up there with Gotti/Ward 1 and Hagler/Hearns. Fight of the Year in Boxing, and maybe a candidate for decade......

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
