    hendricks GSP? lol...

    We get to see historically how juiced hendricks really was for that fight and why GSP fought so hard to get Hendricks to take additional testing (which he avoided).

    Hendricks is literally a posterboy for post USADA career crash....

    Curran vs. Warren in Bellator. Horrific late stoppage.

    Nate choking out Conor was good too.

    As far as a prolonged, violent beatdown of a heavily favoured champ, it's gotta be TJ vs. Barao, and it's not even close.

    Nah. TS said only when the champ was the betting favorite (Shogun was the underdog).

    That was not a one sided beatdown

    Guys I've got it


    JJ vs Carla
    And on the same night

    Pettis vs RDA

    If I had a time machine I'd be a millionaire

    This was far from one sided. Fight was very competitive up until the last minute or two

    No disagreement.

    He still beat the brakes off of GSP.

    Yeah, this one surprised me. I didn't completely count Werdum out but I didn't see it going down like that at all. He beat Cain at his own game. Wore him down in the clinch and took his soul.

    The great ones have been mentioned

    Holly Ronda
    TJ Barao
    Serra GSP
    Bisping Rockhold
    Rose Joanna

    Gonna throw Nate Conor I in there too

    No one thought Cabo Nate was going strangle Conor and it was gorgeous, maybe the greatest moment in UFC history

    I scored it for Hendricks but it was hardly one sided. Get real.

    Literally everything of significance that happened in that fight was done by Hendricks.

    I thought Werdum had a good chance but no way did I think Cain was gonna get battered as bad as he did. Was well happy for Werdum after that result.

    I didn't personally like it, but Barao vs TJ was a near perfect performance by TJ.
