    I have always heard nothing but good things spoken of this fight by people. I thought it was pretty beloved.

    anytime there's a new "post your favorite fight" thread on sherdog, it's typically listed on page 1.

    but yeah- it's a personal favorite of mine.

    Never heard it talked about much on here.

    Then again, 90% of posts are on McGregor or what the latest loudmouth fighter just tweeted.

    Great fight but it's nowhere near as competitive as it's made out to be, Poirier got dominated.

    A typical "I'm posting a false narrative with the sole purpose of making a point already unanimously agreed upon" thread.

    Poiriers heart and resolve made it seem closer.

    He never gave up and who knows maybe in another fight he would have caught KZ.

    Didn't realize it was unanimously ageeed on.

    Honestly I just get tired of the UFC being mostly talk and all about money now,and wanted to have a thread talking about an amazing fight.

    The fight was raved about when it happened and for a while after. Tons of fights (both amazing and otherwise) have happened since so it shouldn't be that surprising that people aren't still talking about it regularly. Not what I'd call an underrated fight by any means; of course it isn't still brought up often, but everyone remembers it very fondly when it is.

    Never seen or heard of this fight. Didn't even know they fought. Thanks for the heads up. Will watch.

    I'm pretty sure anyone who's seen that fight would put it in their top 5 fights ever.

    That's why I'm a fan of both those guy's, true fighters in every sense of the word.
