    I would like to get into some WEC and watch good fights that I didn't see yet, so I ask you guys to educate me - what were some of the WEC fights (especially striking fights) that you liked most?

    Cerrone/Henderson 1
    Torres/Mizugaki
    Henderson/Pettis
    Garcia/Jung of course

    Cerrone/Ratcliff is underrated too

    Garcia vs Jung 1 instantly comes to mind

    Edit: Also, I became a huge Carlos Condit fan in his WEC days

    Pretty much all of Miguel Torres' and Aldo's fights were great. Mike Brown vs Urijah 1 and 2 were also spectacular fights.

    There are so many amazing WEC fights. Many I haven't even watched.

    Lamas vs Jansen was fantastic

    Cruz vs Benavidez 1 was Cruz' coming out party.

    Pettis vs Roller and Pettis vs Bendo were both fantastic

    all of Cerrone's fights were great.

    To add to the great list people have already mentioned Cruz vs Bowles and Cruz vs Jorgensen are great fights that show more of his potential than his UFC fights. Completely out classes them. His fights with benavides are closer but still great fights and even his first fight with Uriah. Actually watch the fight as a whole instead of just focusing on the finish and you could tell he'd be something special. Totally unknown and untested brought in to fight Uriah since he cleared everyone else out and as short as the fight is he out strikes Uriah and gets a couple takedowns before being finished with a brutal one armed guillotine. People who say Cruz is boring never watched his wec fights. Really exciting fights.

    The entire WEC 12 card.

    Best card in all of MMA.

    So many awesome fights, all featuring either good established stars or excellent up and comers.

    Olaf Alfonso vs. John Polakowski 1 & 2, both are brawls on the level of Zombie-Garcia, maybe even better.

    Also anything with Bendo, Cerrone and Pettis in.

    Torres and Condits fights were amazing. I don't think you could go wrong though no matter what WEC event you picked.
