    For me it's Rockhold-Jacare. Rockhold entered the fight not even ranked in the top 30 and Jacare at the time was in his physical prime and ranked number 3 in the world. The fight itself was amazing, Jacare rocked Rockhold in the early round and Luke stuffed his takedowns and picked him apart in the later rounds with the fifth round being very close.

    Frank vs Le is still one of my fave fights. And you can't go wrong with any of the Thomson-Melendez fights.

    Good thread, and AWESOME picks, TS.

    Rockhold vs. Souza, Diaz vs. Daley, and DC. vs. Barnett came to mind here too.

    rockhold in the strikeforce days was kinda cool to watch. he had an different charisma in those days and he was acting more skilled imo. i liked him more as an underdog with the ufc belt he changed.

    Lawler vs Jacare was somewhat crazy at times. Lawler rocked Jacare and showed good defensive Ju Jitzu. Still got subbed tho.

    Win / lose Scott Smith had a lot of entertaining fights there.


    Probably this though.

    Diaz vs Daley, possibly the best round in mma history. Man was Strikeforce good. If you look at the cards they put together, they were actually quite stacked, def better than the average modern ufc card.

    It was short, but no question for me it was Diaz/Daley.

    Rockhold/Souza is close.
