    I've had this sherdog account for about 5 years, and been browsing the forums since like 2008.

    I can't really remember a fight/rivalry that has divided sherdog as much as Conor vs. Khabib, can you? Perhaps it's just recency bias, but this feels like by far the #1 divider in Sherdog history that I've seen.

    Some other ones that come to mind:

    Sonnen vs. Silva 2
    -My memory from this is foggy, but I remember this being a big one given the buildup, their 1st fight, Chael's promotion.

    GSP vs. BJ Penn 2
    -One of the best build ups to a fight ever IMO (their 2nd one). There were some die-hard Penn fans that were devastated from this fight, understandably.

    Lesnar vs. Mir 2
    -I think now that time has passed, people generally like Lesnar and what he has done in MMA (minus the USADA debacle) but I remember back when he was making a tear in the UFC HW division, people who were not a fan of his/the fact he came from the WWE were banking on Mir being the one to overthrow him.

    I used to hate my dad because he was cheering for Chuck instead of Tito.

    Silva/GSP
    Jones/DC
    Conor/Khabib
    Fedor/GSP

    That's 95% of Sherdog right there.

    @Bu11etproof_JBE vs Sherdog’s picture posting function

    Recent, yet a tussle for the ages. Sherdog’s picture posting function, via vicious KO, IMO.

    Rumble vs the weight cut to 170

    Conor vs the weight cut to 145

    Seriously harsh arguments over these.

    I know how to post a photo just fine, I couldnt however figure out how to post a photo from my gallery.

    Not a huge deal, but you nerds ran with it anyways. The photos just would have made you all jealous anyway. Nothing you could probably ever afford.
