View Full Version : favorite MMA moments

I've been watching a lot of video lately, to get ready for the draft, and was wondering what memories stand out to everyone

If MMA was banned today, what memories would stay with you

here's some of mine

Hughes slamming Newton
Rizzo KO'ing Barnett
Andre Roberts turning his back to Ron Waterman to shake of the punches, and then winning the fight
Mir subbing Pete Williams
Pettis cage kick to Bendo
Hughes carrying Trig across the ring to slam him
Newton subbing Miletich
Rampage slamming Arona

any stand out to you?

Silva/Franklin I. Nobody expected that.

Dan Henderson and his vicious KO of Michael Bisping. I jumped off the couch, yelled, and then was worried that he had killed him. Hendo is my favorite fighter, and Bisping is one of my least favorites, but I was seriously worried that he was hurt (don't want to see anyone seriously hurt).

I was thinking along the lines of something you'd tell your grandkids about

telling them the biggest moments that history maybe didn't record as well as some

Fedor getting crushed by Big Foot (didnt expect that)
the Spiders introduction to the UFC (and his subsequent domination thereafter)
Brock Lesnar riding Heath Herring (I just thought it was amusing)
Matt Hughes destroying Royce Gracie
GSP TKO'ing Matt Hughes
and many others...

Randleman slamming Fedor

Randleman smashing Cro Cop with forearms

I'd show my grandkids Li'l Nog vs. Shogun.

I still feel it was MMA at its finest.

CroCop vs. Fedor as well as Wanderlei vs. CC 1 also fall into that category.
