    I have been watching MMA fo 20 year now, and I gotta say as a fan that I have never been this exited to see a fight. I think the huge draw to this one is not only the fact that they're both undefeated, and they hate each other, but the fact that you knew these to guys were going to fight at some point for the last few years. The anticipation to this fight is insane.

    Who's with me? And if not, what fight were you more pumped to see? Before this, it was probably Fedor vs Crocop for me, and like this fight, it was because of the build up.

    In no particular order all of these were more anticipated by me:

    Shogun v Machida I/II
    Couture vs Liddell I/II
    Liddell vs Tito I/II
    Fedor vs Arlovski
    Fedor vs Crocop
    Lesnar vs Mir II
    Carwin vs Lesnar



    Jones vs Cormier is definitely on my list somewhere. But I'd say at the back-end of the Top10 or even Top 11-20, maybe.

    I'm not even that interested in this fight. Wish the Gus rematch would have happened instead.

    Fedor vs Crocop actually made my chest hurt during the walk in.

    I was pretty amped up for Anderson/Chael II.

    But this is the best fight in a while.

    All Anderson fights, except for maybe Okami and Bonnar, the last five years are ahead for me. But that's only because he is the only fighter I root for more than Jones. This is the best fight though, for sure. Gonna be fucking awesome.

    It might just be. Cain/JDS II is up there as well.

    Wouldn't say I'm most pumped for this fight but that's just my own subjective experience. I will say that it's probably the most significant fight in the history of MMA in terms of the competitors' ability

    Nope but mainly due to the fact that neither are in my "favorite" fighters list but I am still pretty pumped for it as this is probably one of the highest level title fights that the UFC has put on.

    I'm more pumped for Diaz/Silva honestly. Not saying that's rational, but it's the truth.

    It doesn't top both Machida/Shogun and Anderson/Chael fights, but I'd say it's in my top 10. It is without a doubt my most anticipated fight in a very long time.

    Fedor - Crocop was the biggest fight for me, and will probably never be topped.

    AS vs. Chael II
    AS vs. Weidman II
    Jones vs. Machida
    Aldo vs. Mendes II
    Wand vs. Arona
    Wand vs. Lidell

    But the top was JDS vs. Cain.
    Was already pumped but when Cain met JDS in the center I went insane!
