...the most important/historical/hyped/biggest MMA fight of all time? What other fights could make a claim for this title?

 
Silva vs Sonnen 2 was the biggest\most hyped fight in the history of MMA IMO.
 
no, only to pride fans, there have been tonnes more important since and before

This is the case in US, Canada and Brazil but back in 2005 in Pride's heydays Fedor vs. Cro Cop was huge in Japan. A fight that had been in the making for two years between two best fighters in the world. It was the biggest fight in Pride's history without a doubt.

you cant really look back and diminish its importance in hindsight. Jack Dempsey set the first million dollar gate back in the day. seems peanuts now, but that shouldnt take away from its value as an important milestone. same with Fedor Cro Cop
 
I still count it as so,

Mainly because it was hyped so badly for 2 years and when it finally happened it delivered on the hype which is what so many hyped fights can not.

Plus it happened to occur during Pride Final Conflict 2005 one of if not the best cards of all time.
 
Quite comfortably really it was much anticipated and dragged out also it was between the two most talented guys in their prime in the biggest organisation in mma at its peak.
 
at the very peak of both men career

Maybe for some of the foreign fans.

Cro Cop vs. Fedor was not even close to the biggest fight in Pride history or even HW fight there. Gardner/Yoshida and Yoshida/Ogawa were bigger fights.
 
Uhm

Brock/mir 2 begs to differ

Yep, as much as people may hate to admit it that PPV did almost 2 mil buys, and brought over tons of pro wrestling fans, some of which who most likely stuck.
 
shame there were never a rematch before Pride went under
