With everyone talking about FOTY i was just thinking back to fights over the years and i was wondering what everyone thought the best SUBMISSION ever, best KO ever, and best FIGHT ever was.


Fight - Hughes vs Trigg 2 (UFC 52) - Such an amazing fight while it lasted. Trigg catches Hughes in the family jewels and the ref doesn't see it, Trigg then pounds Hughes and locks in a rear naked choke, was this payback for the first fight? Hughes then turns into the choke, lifts Trigg up, walks across the cage (The crowd are SCREAMING!) then slams him down, a few minutes later Hughes locks in the rear naked choke and wins again!

Submission - Silva vs Sonnen (UFC 117) - After 4 and a half rounds of domination from Chael, a tired, sweaty, injured, yet amazing champion locks on the triangle and wins.

KO - Yves Edwards vs Josh Thompson (UFC 49) - Fight was going ok, Yves grabs hold of Josh's waist and they both kind of jog across the ring together, then as Yves lets go Josh tried a spinning back fist and Yves throws a jumping kick, SHIN to the DOME!
