    If you were trying to show a friend MMA who hadn't really seen a fight before, what fight would you show them

    Korean Zombie Vs. Dustin Porier is fun from the very beginning, technical, a brawl, and awesome ground fight all in one. Has all aspects.

    What would u show them

    I used to think Korean Zombie vs Leonard Garcia in WEC was an exciting fight to show to people not familiar with the sport until I watched Marco Polo Reyes vs DHK (155er) from 199 with my girl and showed her the KZ vs Garcia fight right after.

    The Reyes DHK fight blows the KZ fight out of the water.

    Stann vs Wanderlei is great too but probably doesn't have as much meaning to a person who has never watched MMA.

    Edgar vs Maynard II

    Some striking, some wrestling, a little guy fighting hard against a big guy. Blood, sweat, heart, pain....

    That fight has it all.

    Good call on the Reyes DHK fight, that was ridiculously good fun

    I often go back to Roger Huerta vs Leonard Garcia, massively fun fight, like a less sloppy Griffin/Bonnar

    Matt Brown Erick Silva could work as well

    Some great choices here. Brown Silva was pretty one-sided after the first few minutes...brutal beatdown.


    Another fight I liked a lot that would do well would be Condit/Rory.
