    Has there ever been a fight like this where one guy clearly doesn't have a hope of winning?

    This isn't a Chael bashing thread either, i'm actually a fan of his. Just a fan with common sense. He can't KO or TKO Jones, he can't submit Jones and he can't dominate him for 5 rounds.

    Can you name any other fights where one guy had literally no possible way to win?

    This is exactly how I felt when Neer/Edwards was made.

    The most obvious one I can think of would be Serra vs GSP. Serra clearly had zero chance of winning and was what 10 to 1 or worse underdog?

    Its MMA, anything can and does happen.

    yeah actually, I seem to remember there being a fight where a fighter had absolutely no chance of winning according to Sherdog, two actually.

    Mir vs. Nog I

    Chael vs. Anderson I.
