    For example:Rampage and Mike Pyle fought eachother in 1999, before either was well known.

    Pat Curran fought Daniel Straus before either were in Bellator

    What are some others?

    Lyoto vs Rich and Lyoto vs Bonnar?

    Although Heath Herring was well known, this chubby russian dude was brought in to be dismantled by Heath who would then go on to fight Nog for the HW title but something went a little wrong with those plans. Watch the fight with Bas commentary, knowing what we know now it's hilarious.

    Tyson Griffin Vs. Urijah Faber happened in a small show long before either was well known, this was Faber's lone loss for a long time.
