    Francis vs. Black Beast may get this distinction, but others have to be close.

    There was more violence in the hype leading up tot he show than there was in the fight.

    Great list, but have to disagree with the first one. We got this gem out of that fight.

    Diaz/Condit especially. Use to be a huge fan of Condit,after that I basically wanted to see him lose and get KOed. I remember having a pretty big fight party for that fight and he basically embarrassed me in front of a bunch of casuals

    Cro Cop vs Mir. You know it's bad when the only knockout of the night doesn't get the knockout of the night bonus.
