    TJ vs Cody

    that fight had everything.
    The prefight: TJ leaves TAM after winning the belt, snake in the grass, the choke gif, Cody basically admitting TAM takes roids and TJ showed them how to, the Knock down video.

    The actual fight: Cody Knocks TJ down, taunts TJ in between rounds and dancing after a miss head kick,
    everyone chanting "FK YOU, TJ!", Then BOOM, TJ bounces his shin off of Codys skull, and momentum just shifts, and TJ proceeding to outposition Cody and knocking him the fk out.

    but thats not all folks:
    The postfight:

    TBH, I honestly thought this rivalry was just a fake beef like Cruz and Faber. But when he did this. I knew this wasn't fabricated. Dudes on his fking tippy toes, screaming in his face!

    TLDR: Top notch theatrics, amazing fight sick comeback, and probably going to be a classic rivalry.

    Diaz vs McGregor I would be my second.

    Woodley vs Maia

    Hadn't been able to sleep well those few days before that fight.

    I owe both fighters.

    Realistically probably Rory vs Lawler 2. It had heart, grit and determination from two warriors.

    Another fight I like a lot is Hendricks vs Lawler. Amazing fight back and forth.

    Way too many for me to pick just one, but an example would be Hendo vs Shogun.

    That was one of the most savage, back-and-forth Just Bleed wars ever. The sheer toughness and fighting spirit exhibited by both guys was awe-inspiring.

    No quit in either of them in that fight, no matter how badly they were hurt.

    Lawler vs Rory

    Cain vs Bigfoot 2 and Cain vs Rotwell.

    Khabib vs Barboza for big gnp.

    I like gruesome punches and ruthless Mario Yamasaki.

    Diaz vs Daley
    Shogun vs Machida

    Was at the Diaz one live and both those fights were so tense on first watch.

    I lost $5 on Cain vs Rothwell. I was like “who’s this lame Brown Pride guy, I will take the big ogre” then Cain whooped his ass.

    Jones vs Gus

    Because Juice-boy got his ass kicked, and looked like he was about to shit his pants after the fight.

    Gonna have to go with Fedor vs. Cro Cop

    That fight had so much build up, plus Cro Cop's KO of Aleks. That's a fight the fans had been waiting for for a long time. The atmosphere was insane for that fight. I was in the edge of my seat every second. It was a real chess match.

    Jones X Gus

    Fighter that looks unstoppable goes up against heavy underdog, underdog gives him the fight of his life in a razor close back and forth war

    Didn't really like Jones before that but that fight made me a Jones fanboy and a fan of Gus

    Wanderlei/chuck.

    Happened a couple years later than it should've but it delivered. I'll never forget Chuck cracking Wanderlei, following him to the fence and wand just exploding with a fucking hurricane of hooks and haymakers. Great fight even tho Wand lost.

    Conor vs. Chad Mendes. My anticipation of Conor vs. a wrestler was very high. I had fully bought into the Conor hype machine by that time. When Conor was taken down for the first time was possibly the most excited and anxious I ever got as an MMA fan. And then the finish...just wow.

    Because it was well deserved and started the GSP era.
