    Was thinking about bispings win over rockhold, and nates win over conor, and thinkibg about how much hespect they both recieved from those single victory's. Anyways it got me to wondering what fighter has gained the most hespect from just one single win. Could be a career defining win, or just a big upset. Anyways, lets hear some imo's.

    Much as I despise the man, McGregor's win over Aldo was pretty amazing.

    Not a win, but Roy Nelson made me a fan after the beating he took from JDS. That was insane.
