The biggest fights in MMA history were held in PrideFC. There has yet to be a fight bigger than Fedor/Cro Cop imo.

The biggest fight in UFC history is probably Lesnar/Carwin or something else that is lulz-worthy. Tito/Chuck maybe.

The best fight in UFC history is Tito/Frank imo.

Tito vs Shamrock was apparently the biggest for the company.

Zuffa was close to folding at the time.

Lesnar was by far the ppv king, but I only think his main event at UFC 100 was a big fight.
This is true. I should have added that i think Tito/chuck 2 was the singular biggest fight. Many of the other ppvs i mentioned had stacked cards which helped them sell, as well as a bigger and more refined ufc marketing juggernaut behind it. Tito/chuck 2 was an old school, pre "mainstream" fight on a very average card and basically sold itself.

Bullshit. Bulls over Cavs in finals on Jordan's jumper over Ehlo is the biggest NBA game ever, and it would win a poll to that effect in a landslide. There would be other games garnering votes, but that one game is huge.

Depends on the criteria I guess…..views? PPV? Names? Importance of fight
