Fujita is the obvious one. Arona one is debatable but that would be considered his closest fight that went to a decision. I felt Randleman's suplex and Rogers' GnP is along the same lines...it looked
devastating but in both cases Fedor turned it around and went for a submission within seconds. He wasn't rocked in both cases either. If people are going to mention Rogers breaking Fedor's nose within seconds... then they should mention Lindland cutting Fedor within seconds. Both had no effect on the rest of the fight.
Hunt is a good pick and to me is a longer version of what AA was doing. AA was tagging him on the feet and got overzealous and got KO'ed. Hunt didn't know how to finish, and Fedor turned it around and finished him via sub.
