    Brian Stan vs Wanderlei Silva. I don't remember if that was a scheduled 3 or 5 rounder, and i know it did not go the distance....but oh man what a slugfest

    SHOGUN VS HENDO, second fight (ended in the 3rd, but maybe it was a 5-rounder?). Romero vs Costa is a romantic comedy by comparison.

    Stann vs Wanderlei (as someone else mentioned) rules as well.

    Gaethje vs. Alvarez
    Medeiros vs. Oliveira from the same card was a banger as well.
    Also Griffin vs. Bonnar.

    There are so many, but one that stands out for me is when Chuck Liddell fought Wanderlei Silva. It was a year or 2 past their prime, but it was a great fight anyhow!

    I'm guessing this is for fights that went 3, so like Diaz-Daley wouldn't count? In that case:

    Shabliy-Vartanyan
    Shogun-Minotouro I
    Emelianenko-Filipovic
    Alvarez-Gaethje
    Edgar-Griffin
    Romero-Costa
    Luque-Barberena
    Diaz-Parisyan
    Kattar-Burgos
    Stephens-Bermudez
    Sanchez-Parisyan
    Lineker-Ozkilic
    Strus-Dipchikov
    Swanson-Choi
    Swanson-Semerzier
    Askarov-Leone
    Reyes-DHM
    Lawler-Riley
    Poirier-Miller
    Luque-Perry
    Dillashaw-Assuncao I
    DJ-McCall I
    Torres-Maeda
    Brown-Silva
    Almeida-Pickett
    Khasymkhanov-Peduson
    Condit-Ellenberger
    Ortega-Tavares
    Condit-Hendricks
    Sanchez-Alessio
    Benavidez-Ortiz II
    Kerefov-Avagyan
    Emmett-Burgos
    Cerrone-McCullough
    Lawler-MacDonald I
    Medeiros-Oliveira
    Kampmann-Condit I
    Yan-Rivera
    Chito-Yadong
    Ortega-Moicano

    I'm guessing most here haven't seen Shabliy-Vartanyan, but you have to watch it:



    2 of the best LWs of this era, and arguably the best 3 round fight ever. ACA has been amazing for years now..
