Royce Saku 2 - 90 minute battle
It might not be the best ever, but Nguyen vs Smolka had everything in terms of grappling. Crazy transitions for the whole fight.
Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit.
Saku and aoki deserve mention for their fights
Ogawa vs Gary
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 think you didn't get his joke.
Guida vs Pettis hahahaha
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)
Did not last long, but imo :
If it's not available then use proxy
20 seconds that are worth it.
worth a mention
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.
Just watched the entire vid on the toilet and yes it was worth it.
Barnett-Nogueira I and II
