    Not necessarily forgotten fights but some awesome victories or displays of skill that don't get mentioned very often on Sherdog anymore. I can think of a few big W's and moments from the 2006-2012 era.
    LETS GO BRAHS!

    I'll start it off.

    Chris Leben pulled off beating Aaron Simpson and Akiyama within 14 days. Took a fight against Akiyama on short notice. Got lit up. Hung in there as he always did with his pumpkin head and iron chin and proceeded to submit Sexyama in the 3rd round. It was awesome lol

    Liddell vs Sobral 2

    Chuck was getting some criticism for fighting past their prime guys in a shallow division.
    Babalu was on a great win streak and was looking his best. Seemed like the perfect guy to pull the upset.

    Chuck showed why he was the top of the division with a surprisingly easy win.

    Wonderboy TKOing Bobby Knuckles. I always rated it as one of his best wins.
