    so what are some fights that paired a technical fighter vs an unorthodox fighter

    for striking:

    Cro cop vs wanderlei. in their second fight wand came out trying to brawl with cro cop and throw wild haymakers. cro cop stayed in the pocket with straights and body kicks and then ended with a high kick.

    for grappling:

    sakuraba vs the gracies. you got sakuraba using catch and pro wrestling moves to defeat the people that helped refine jui jitsu.

    what are some other good examples?

    Silva v Leben is so glaring, that I can't even think of anything else.

    Maybe Lennard Garcia v Take-Your-Pic?
