    # NEW!!!!! CONOR KHABIB

    #1 BJ Penn vs. Georges St. Pierre 2


    [​IMG]

    It's not often an entire message board is so divided between two distinct groups of loyal fans. In MMA terms this fight was the equivalent of the American Civil War. The difference being team Penn hurled insults, and made bold statements the whole time leading up to the fight only for it to be completely thrown back in his face. It doesn't get much worse than your mother speaking at a commission hearing for you. Mods were banned, and butts were prolapsed.

    #2 Anderson Silva Vs. Chael Sonnen 1&2

    [​IMG]


    The best fighter we've ever seen in the cage fights a solid wrestler with the biggest mouth the cage has ever seen. If Chael was a poster on sherdog.net he'd be banned within an hour. Nobody has ever insulted someone as badly as Chael did to Anderson. Again the fans were divided, and Chael gained a loyal following afterwards for his stand up efforts. Also It's pretty damn humiliating, and humbling to get submitted with a few seconds left on the clock after you've been taking something to increase your male hormones.

    #3 Heath Herring Vs. Brock Lesnar

    [​IMG]

    This was a case of Pride veteran, and fan favorite meets the male soap opera star viking with a blunt instrument tattooed on his chest. Little did Heath know even with all of his experience, and stand up he was no match up for an elite wrestler who resembled a white rhino when he charged for the take down.


    Honorable mention:

    Tony Bonello Vs. Ninja Rua

    [​IMG]

    Anderson Silva Vs. Chris Leben

    Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman

    What goes around comes around.

    i don't really understand lesnar/heath. not like heath needed to be humbled, or that he was even a well-known ufc fighter. i think this was his 2nd or 3rd ufc fight? either way:

    penn/pulver 2

    tito/sham 3

    cain or overeem/lesnar

    chuck/rampage

    Heath talked a lot, and didnt think Brock was on his level. He hasnt fought again since that loss, i'd say that's humbling. I like Heath too.

    If you want to talk humbling also Aoki getting knocked out in the MMA portion of his fight with Nagashima after he ran during the stand up portion.

    Munoz needed a reality check, he was high off his on aura before that fight.

    Same, even though I felt bad about the diverticulitis. Cain restored the natural order of things!

    I think the Heath Herring- Brock Lesnar thing is meant as the measure of Butt-Hurt from fans at the time rather than the actual fighter needing to be humbled. It's too different things really.

    Shogun vs. Forrest 1 came to mind.
    Both humbling for Pride FC fans and Shogun.

    Agreed about the butt-hurt, but as a result he was humbled because he said Brock shouldn't be in the same cage as him. He completely disregarded Brock, and thought he was a side show.
