    What are some old/current UFC fights that are widely considered meh/boring that you actually enjoy/rewatch?

    I'll start with a couple for me


    Forrest/Franklin

    Basically any GSP fight
    (Specifically I'll say GSP/Fitch and GSP Kos II for example)

    What are some fights that aren't considered exciting/classics you enjoy?

    Wasn't the most exciting fight, but I enjoyed Edgar shutting out Penn in the rematch.

    People claim Overeem is fighting boring now because he's more cautious, but I love his fights.

    Couture vs Ortiz. It was just Randy out-wrestling Tito for 5 rounds, but it was hilarious to see Randy literally spanking Tito like he was his son.

    Recently, I enjoyed Pettis vs Alvarez even though most people said it sucked and I was rooting for Pettis.

    Basically any GSP and Dominick fight, along with several fights like Condit vs. Diaz.

    I honestly think that the level of dominance and therefore greatness achieved by fighters like Dominick Cruz and especially Georges St-Pierre could never be referred to as boring, just like I think a smart fight can be way better than a bar brawl. Still, I acknowledge that common sense says they're not exciting, so that's my vote.

    I've never felt bored during a fight with Dom or GSP in it, but I can see where some people would. I admire the high level game planning both fighters employ and stick to.

    I don't think Fitch vs GSP was considered boring...

    But anyway, the answer is any boring fight in which the guy I'm rooting for wins.
