    Long time listener, first time caller...

    I've been watching MMA for a few years now (I'll admit I missed Pride, but have watched some on the web). If you could make a list of some fights to watch that would show everyone what they're missing, what would they be? I'm not just looking for knockouts, but fights that showed off well-rounded skill sets. Thanks.

    Watch all the mismatches their all crazy, watch all the fixed wand and cro cop fights and dont forget to watch Shogun's rise to fame, you know what watch the Fedor's and Nog's fights its worth the watch.

    Jones x Gus
    Machida x Shogun 1
    Wandy/Page trilogy
    Silva/Chael 1
    Fedor/Crocop/Nog (any combo you want)

    I might have get it wrong. Do you want to show Pride or MMA in general?

    Yeah, thanks for the suggestions...was watching on Saturday. Kind of got me thinking with all of the initial "Greatest Fight of All-Time" nonsense. And then I thought, "Who am I? I've been barely watching for a few years. I'll bet there's better fights out there by the plenty."

    Throw any MMA fights up there. Organization doesn't matter, I was just looking for quality fights where superb skills are displayed.

    Hm, I get it. You might wanna look up to WEC fights too, if you are a fan of the lighter wheightclasses. (Actually it was my fav org, before UFC bought it)

    Here are some fights from WEC you might wanna watch: http://www.tapology.com/rankings/823-best-wec-fights-of-all-time

    Oh mate don't worry, I've been following the UFC regularly for a year now. I've spent so much time watching older fights just to know what the hell's everyone talking about haha.
