    Hunt vs Wand stands out to me. Its a fight that probably wouldnt have happened normally,and it was actually a classic fight. It also showcased Wanderlei's bravery (and love of money) as its the second time he fought a k-1 top shelf fighter,and he wasnt afraid to throw hands on him...and he was supposed to fight Sakuraba,you couldnt find a more different opponent in mark hunt. Bisping Rockhold is another one.

    Bisping vs rockhold was hilarious, even though bisping is the weakest champion ever and it makes the division look like shit.

    Rolled into Vegas, fought, made $600K, rolled out.

    The loss really did nothing good or bad to his career given the circumstances. That's how it's done!

    It was a very brave move,and erased some of the stain from the last few fights he had.

    "I'll beat you with one leg"

    "I'll crawl in there and still beat you"

    "I'm gonna retire you"

    In recent memory not including Bisping. His fight with Ferguson was a blast.

    Gotta go with Leben stepping up to fight Sexyama 3 weeks after he beat Aaron Simpson, pulling off the come-from-behind 3rd round submission win

    Yeah, and was amazing when you consider Anderson had all of two days notice and fought the champ of a heavier weight class.

    It was beautiful. That post fight press conference was amazing. Bisping is so humble.

    Couture vs Chuck 1 , it was hilarious and awesome at the time to see the ass whooping Couture gave Liddell. If you remember UFC 43 was supposed to be Liddell vs Tito.. but Tito didn't sign the contract and wanted more moneys and other things, so Randy came in late and proceeded to give Chuck a beatdown.
