    Hello everyone! For a while I haven't watched any M-1 fights besides couple Fedor and Jeff Monson fights. Recently I decided to learn about the org since it produced some fighters that are successful in the UFC and Bellator right now. Which M-1 fights should I absolutely see immediately? Like UFC has that classic fights which everyone knows: Griffin vs Bonnar, Sanchez vs Melendez, Jones vs Gustafsson, Aldo vs Mendes II. Pride also had ones like Fedor vs CroCop, Fedor vs Nog (x3), Wandy vs Rampage (x2), Sakuraba vs Gracies... What are fights of such type in M-1?

    Slava Vasilevsky is a must known, and entertaining to watch. His competition is pretty lame though.

    I've read about it being worse than Werdum's butt scooting.

    The famous kick starts at around 18:51. This is one reason why soccer kicks should be legal imo.

    wow, thanks for sharing that first time i've seen it. (i'm still a newbie i guess)

    after watching that it makes me wonder why people complain about palhares. palhares seems quite tame compared to that

    These are probably not "must watch" fights but I thought these were some good fights.
    Zavurov vs Yakovlev: first round is pretty slow but the pace picks up it round 2.

    Here is another fight of Mairbek's who will be fighting on Jan. 24 on the UFC Fox card:
