    Cro Cop vs Fedor, Pride Final Conflict 2005

    Possibly the greatest MMA fight ever.

    It's nowhere near the best fight in MMA history.

    Dear God, some people still dont get it...I didnt say best fight, but the greatest fight. Two different things. Ali or Louis are probably the greatest boxers, but that doesnt mean they are the best boxers...

    CC isn't on that level of greatness though, so regardless of what criteria we're using, it's nowhere near the greatest fight in MMA history.

    I'm honestly not going to bother debating this with someone whose username is crofighter, but I was a TUF 1 noob, so I was very much around at the time.

    People who started watching MMA because of a reality show, shouldn't debate MMA with people who started watching MMA, because it's the toughest combat sport...

    OK buddy. CC wasn't even the second best HW of his era and has losses in his prime to Mark Hunt and Kevin Randleman. He was one-dimensional and his achievemevents are often wildly exaggerated.
