Misaki-Santiago II is likely the greatest. Then there are fights like Maia-MacDonald, Wand-Le, Silva-Sonnen I (strictly for the drama though), Lawler-Manhoef, Smith-Sell, Leben-Akiyama, Machida-Mousasi ...
Why strictly for the drama...the fight in and of itself was awesome. Dropping Silva, rolling away, the domination, the comeback..

It was a tremendous fight.

Probably the closest 4-1 fight i've ever seen if that makes sense.

one of my favorite MW fights is doerksen/cote... a beautiful technical fight with a great finish.

saku/zelg is probably my favorite, although saku/smirnovas was much more dramatic (tainted by being so fuckin tough to watch).

newton/pele might've been contested at MW (PRIDE WW... 183), but I guess i'll just dismiss it because they're both WWs
Great mentions man, can't believe I forgot about the Saku fights and the Doerksen one was great (dude has gotten underrated in recent times). I don't think I've seen the last one or I must have forgotten since I was watching MMA at that time.

That's what made the fight great, the comeback which was the drama. If he didn't hit that Hail Mary sub it's thought of as one of the most one-sided title fights in MW history. It's not like any of the rounds before the 5th were close, Sonnen was out-striking and out-grappling him, likely had a 10-8 or two.

183 in PRIDE...Baroni/Minowa.

Fucking foot stomping classic.
