Any classic UFC fights or FOTY candidates that took place on the prelims?

    I'm not simply talking Fight of the Night. There are many of those on the prelims. I'm talking top 5/top 10 fight of the year. A classic fight.

    A WEC equivalent is Korean Zombie v. Leonard Garcia, which was on the prelims on WEC 48.

    Any for the UFC?

    Dong Hyun Kim vs Marco Polo Reyes

    Dennis Bermudez vs Matt Grice is a great fight (underrated imo) that was on the UFC 157 prelims

    Robbie Lawler vs Aaron Riley way back at UFC 37 (Robbie's UFC debut and first fight on the card--wasn't shown live on the PPV, but a replay was)

    Somehow I've never seen that. Sounds like it's worth watching?

    Bermudez Grice is one of the craziest fights ever. Real shame it wasn't a draw.

    As another poster said

    Frankie Edgar Vs Tyson Griffin was an awesome fight, not sure if it was on the prelims though.
     
  17. Not trying to be the guy who wants to prove TS wrong, but wasn't that WEC card Leonard Garcia and KZ fought for the first time not technically a WEC card? I know fight finder has it as WEC 48, but I specifically remember that card not being titled WEC or UFC. It was a zuffa PPV (WEC wasn't doing PPVs at the time), but I don't think it was under any promotional banner other than zuffa. This was riiiiiiiight before the UFC absorbed the WEC. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Lawler vs Riley and Salaverry vs Semenov both from UFC 37 undercard and both worth watching. If you are a Lawler fan and haven't seen the Riley fight, do so now. And the Salaverry/Semenov is highly underrated and mostly unknown fight but had some amazing ground transitions and submission escapes. Also, Sam Stout vs Spencer Fisher 1 was on UFC 58 prelims and was an absolute war.
