Came to say masvidal and pettis but glad they were mentioned on the front page.
Barnett vs Rizzo 2 fits the bill. Though Pedro was not in his best form.
And Melendez, and Oliveira, and Shane Roller.
"Improved Striking" Frank Mir submitting Noguiera
Big Ben vs Barnett
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.
Matt Serra KOing GSP
Anderson vs Sonnem
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.
Pettis vs almeida
Reem vs Vitor Gracie...(matter of perspective though...)
Exactly, that's why Stefan Struve beat the ever loving crap out of Hunt.
Metzger vs Tito
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.
Travis Lutter when he knocked out Marvin Eastman
Couture beat up Liddell in their first fight & Couture beating up Tim Sylvia (although he didn't get a KO).
Randy's TKO over Chuck at UFC 43
