    For me it has to be Fedor's KO of Mir. He didn't have a great win in years and is so far past his prime. Seeing him beat the odds was great. Hope he wins the tournament.

    What is your favorite back-to-the-wall, last chance victory?

    Anderson over Chael the first time.

    I actually called Tito over Bader believe it or not. I've never cared for Tito but Bader was so arrogant and clearly looking past him going into the fight I just had a feeling. I will admit I always enjoyed his Gravedigger thing though and it was nice to see again.

    Loved Fedors KO of Mir as I was really nervous about that one and have always felt Mir was actually the 1 UFC HW that may have been trouble for Fedor back in the day. Both guys are just shells of themselves now though.

    Aldo is my favorite fighter and even though I was watching the fight alone I couldn't help screaming with excitement when he got the finish, lol, great moment for a legend to remind everyone how talented he still is.

    Not sure about favorite but Wand's wins over Jardine and Bisping were good.

    This one. I don’t think anyone’s career ever rebounded like Hunt’s did after this win. I can’t believe the man fought his way to a title shot.

    Is this like the equivalent of when an athlete beasts it up during a contract year?

    Who was about to get cut but didn't because of a big win?

    I'm not a huge Ortiz fan but nearly jumped through the roof when he beat Bader.
    Does Wanderlei vs Cung Le count as one of these scenarios? If so add that to the list.
