    My vote would be for "The Korean Zombie vs. Dustin Poirier"..

    You had the reserved boxing of Poirier against the aggressive, flashy style of KZ, along with some brutal clinch work, takedowns, trips, & of course, submissions.

    No shit ... Amazing sequence. If there had just been a couple kicks thrown that one gif would've shown every phase in about the most exciting way possible.

    I kinda hate to say it right now but most JBJ fights showcase most phases beautifully.

    Good fight but such limited standup - zero kicking game iirc.

    Shogun vs Hendo no1 was cool with the knockdowns, sub attempts and ground and pound to finish the end of the fight. Randy vs Big Nog was awesome back and fourth between 2 popular fighters.

    and the recent reem struve fight..so many HLs in that 1
