    I'd say Koscheck taking on Thiago Alves on 2 weeks when Thiago was KO'ing guys.
    Who you got?

    In hindsight I think it was probably Junior Dos Santos vs Werdum. Werdum didn't know the baddest heavyweight on the planet was stepping up on short notice to whup his butt(Werdum's).

    What I was thinking.

    Also, didn't Jamie Varner say he was a little scared going into the fight with Barboza because he's been a monster in the UFC and he felt he most likely won't win? I think he said that in the post-fight press conference but I could be mistaken.

    Spaniard vs. Story

    Brenneman literally only had a day to prepare facing Story who was on a roll.

    Weidman had to cut 30+ lbs to fight Maia, a top 10 fighter who can have ended his undefeated streak. Probably not so much 'scary' and more so 'risky'.

    This has to be the right answer.

    On only 3 days notice, Wanderlei went from thinking he was gonna fight Sakuraba, to fighting a K-1 guy 100+ pounds bigger who could have knocked his friggin head off.

    Even though the fight didn't take place, Chael agreeing to fight Jones was a bit suicidal...

    Uh, Vitor/Bones.

    I think Eilers fought Arlovski on short notice, that was ugly.

    This.

    The beating he took from Teixiera was unbearable.
