    It might not be the best ever, but Nguyen vs Smolka had everything in terms of grappling. Crazy transitions for the whole fight.

    Check out Charles Oliveira vs. Hatsu hioki. Two very high level grapplers going at it.

    It's been so long I can't recall the whole fight.. but I remember Nog vs Couture being a great fight. It was mix stand up and ground. More specifically I remember Nogs ground game being so damn good in that fight. Nog was smooth and one step a head, where as Randy did a good job escaping and doing just enough to stay a live.

    I should rewatch. Sometimes things aren't always as you remember.

    I was thinking of Tokoro as well. His fight with LC Davis in Bellator had a lot of rolls and chains also.

    Some of my favourites:

    Demian Maia vs. Jason MacDonald
    Nick Diaz vs. Diego Sanchez
    Luke Cummo vs. Joe Stephensen (underrated imo)

    This was the first fight that got me interested in mma, before it as I didn't understand the ground game I found it boring, but that fight I could see two amazing masters at work and got hooked!

    I remember an extremely underrated ground fight being Bendo vs Guida, it wasn't aired thanks to the UFC on Fox debut show with just one fight, but it was terrific.
