Gus/JBJ is legit. Hunt/Big Foot is legit. Shogun/Hendo was Legit.

The other two are debatable. I liked Mendes/Aldo 2 but didn't feel like it was eye opening. I'd have to go back and watch Maynard/Edgar 2. That was a crazy outcome if I remember.

I like Frankie but his LW reign was a blur of close decisions. Then we got more of the same with Bendo. I prefer the chaos right now.

excited for Bones/Rumble too.. Rumble's on a tear and I honestly hope he knocks him out since Bones has become a douche
Chuck was a big star.

Anderson is debatable. He had a legit reign on top. I'm just talking popularity. Besides the Sonnen, Diaz and second Weidman fight, his fights weren't doing huge numbers. In fact, the deep dark Uncle Dana secret is that none of these Brazillian champs are draws. It took Sonnen's Billy Graham recitations and the assault of pillow fists to finally get water from the Silva well. Before that fight, Silva was getting booed and Dana was extremely frustrated. Anderson was indifferent to it.

GSP doesn't have swag. He just had a cool factor and was the BIGGEST star the UFC ever had. He was marketable, before the knock out heard round the world was an exciting fighter and dominated the WW division. He was their biggest draw (Brock and Tito are probably next).

And Connor/Aldo has the potential to be one of the biggest fights in UFC history. It's a little early but mid June we need to get crazy montage clips cut together from the World Tour.

I'm excited for Jones/Rumble. Rumble had been a juggernaut since his return. He's definitely got knock out power. He might be able to neutralize JBJ's wrestling (I'm not sure after what he did to DC) especially with the Rashad training with him. The only question marks are Jon's reach, Rumble's gas tank in the championship rounds and how Jon can wear you.

He needs to definitely study the tape from the Gus, Glover and DC fights.

And don't get it twisted. I love MMA. And UFC has some really compelling fights coming up. I just wish UFC did a better job promoting their ish. We just Polly about two big fights (not to mention there's Lawler/McDonald and Weidman/Belfort as co-mains).

5. Hendo/Shogun
4. Edgar/Maynard II (the 1st title fight that ended in a draw)
3. Aldo/Mendes
2. Hunt/Bigfoot
1. Bones/Gus

I just assumed Forrest/Bonnar would be #1.

I think that was Brendan Schuab's list.

He mentioned on his podcast that he was putting a list together for a fox show and that's exactly it.

All of those were legit wars so i can't knock any of those.

I thought the Bonnar/Griffin fight was garbage but i saw it a long time after it happened.

People thought GSP was pretty swaggy before he became champ. Then we got to know him better

Glad forrest v bonnar 1 wasn't #1. The fight was important but when they put it at 1 for that 100 greatest ufc fights list, I shook my head.

UFC 187, 188, 189 and that stacked July Fox card are all good cards.

It's sad, they actually have a lot of good fights sprinkled amongst the Fight Nights and that the next Rhonda card that they could make two stacked UFC PPVs with potential 500K buys. The problem is that schedule.

Thinking about making this low risk bet. Only 50 but I like the chances.

We've had some upsets lately, hopefully this Johnson vs that Horicuchi guy will be another upset.

God Rogan, sometimes he's just too much. Stop trying to hype up Bisping

Did Rogan just say DJ was the best MMA fighter ever

This is why it's probably not a good idea to put a guy who said he didn't want a title shot yet because he wasn't ready in a title fight

Joe Rogan :x does he not realize the level of comp in other divisions are much greater than that of 125? 

 

DJ running through these dudes, he got no competition 

 

The dude he just beat tonight didn't even want the fight to begin with :lol
