    Saw a "Best Strikeforce fights" and wanted to start this one. Last time one of these threads was made about Bellator was in 2012 and I think alot of good fights have happened since then that are worth discussing. Eddie Alvarez vs Michael Chandler 1&2 are the obvious ones. Emanuel Newton's last three fights (Beltran, Vassell, and McGeary) are the ones that made me a fan of his, seen those numerous times. I also enjoyed:
    Patricky vs Caveman
    Warren vs Dantas
    Brooks vs Chandler 1
    Patricky vs Woodard
    Lima vs Saunders 2
    Koreshkov vs Zaromskis
    Gonzalez vs Zaromskis
    Askren vs Hieron
    Shlemenko vs Marshall
    Shlemenko vs Ward
    Shlemenko vs Cooper 2

    Any else?

    "Emanuel Newton's last three fights (Beltran, Vassell, and McGeary) are the ones that made me a fan of his"

    I thought this was a serious thread until I got to that sentence.

    The inverted triangle fights - Imada and Hale. LC Davis/Tokoro fight was contender for FOTY.

    Sucks this is a troll thread. But I enjoyed Rob Emerson vs Joe Taimanglo. That was an excellent fight. 2 rounds of war and then Emerson just picked him apart in the 3rd

    Michael Page vs. Ricky Rainey is probably my favourite one sided fight ever.

    Lol, this is not a troll thread, I don't see how it could be one. You can't deny the Newton fights were awesome, the Beltran one was a pretty good comeback fight with an amazing finish, the one with Vassell was a complete ground war, and the McGeary one was back and forth.

    MVP vs Rainey was a good beatdown, the fans booing MVP's taunting made it better lol.

    The tournament with Ivanov vs Johnson and Volkov vs Siliga is easily one of my favorite Bellator tournaments. Lots of finishes

    Pitbull vs Weichel should get comeback of the year, no doubt.

    Never seen Dantas vs Galvao, might check it out.

    You bastard. That was a good fight, but I can't enjoy that fight, knowing that Joe Soto almost lost his eye cuz of that fight.

    I agree, i thought Emerson was looking great in his Bellator fights was disappointed to see him removed from roster

    Mike Richman vs Popo Bezerra, Akop Stepanyan
    Shahbulat Shamhalaev tournament run was pure destruction ( too bad he quit mma just as he join ATT)
    Jesse Juarez vs Jordan Smith
    Patricio Pitbull vs Georgi Karakhanyan

    those are a few off top of my head
