    Barnett vs Rizzo 2 fits the bill. Though Pedro was not in his best form.

    I couldn't believe that Pettis sub. He was having success with those body kicks, then he does some cartwheel kicks and I roll my eyes as Goldie is like "Pettis going for a little bit of showtime". The memory of Guida grinding him out was still somewhat fresh, so doing anything to let Benson get on top seemed like a terrible idea to me. Then he pulls off that armbar like it was no problem, and I believe they were just talking about Benson getting his black belt during the walkout.

    That just shows the advantage of height. Werdum is not a great striker. But put a 6'4" normal dude against a 5'10 champion... 6'4'" guy wins

    Werdum is a good striker when he's at his best.

    Exactly, that's why Stefan Struve beat the ever loving crap out of Hunt.

    More impressed at a striker subbing a high level sub grappler/bjj guy due to the skill involved/necessary in most situations, but it's not as big of a jump out of your chair moment.

    Couture beat up Liddell in their first fight & Couture beating up Tim Sylvia (although he didn't get a KO).
