    Edson is almost primarily a dangerous striker while Khabib is almost primarily an aggressive grappler.. I could have worded that better, but I'm lazy. So what are some other fights like this ? They remind me of the old days. A lot of people thought Brock/Hunt was sort of this way and I suppose I agree.

    These feel like video game fights because typically in a game each character is distinctly unique in their style. It's almost a little less exciting when two fighters have the same exact style. (although those fights can be interesting in their own right.)

    Nog/Crocop is the most obvious.
