    So we always talk about pound 4 pound. What about the best you have ever seen for one night per division!

    Bw: TJ Dillashaw beating the shit out of Barao twice or the Cody Garbrandt that beat Cruz
    Fw: Conor/Poirer & Aldo, Max over Ortega & Aldo twice, Aldo in WEC days can't name the specific fight
    Lw: Khabib over Barboza his pressure standing up was insane and on the ground he beat the living fuck out of Edson
    WW: GSP over Koscheck 2 or BJ Penn despite the size
    MW: Andersons demolishines of Rich Franklin
    LHW: Jones/Shogun
    HW: Cain over Travis Browne,Lesnar,Noguiera, Rothwell, JDS 2 & 3. The best Cain beats the best HW on any other night in history

    Womens divisions its whatever and flyweight the same

    LHW: Shogun vs. Arona. Arona was generally regarded as the #1 or #2 fighter in his division and he'd just come off a win against Wandy in the GP. Shogun just straight up demolished him in under 3 minutes.

    WBW and WFW: Amanda Nunes demolishing every single former champ and finishing them in the 1st round.

    Flyweight: Johnson destroying the undefated Olympic champ in less than 3 minutes.
    Bantamweight: Garbrandt dominating Cruz.
    Featherweight: Conor in something like 10 seconds over the hitherto unstoppable Aldo.
    Lightweight: Khabib. Not sure which fight to pick.
    Welterweight: GSP over Hardy. He had something like 24 and a half minutes worth of top control in that fight.
    Middleweight: Anderson Silva over Belfort and then attributing the finishing move to Steven Seagal.
    Light Heavyweight: Anderson Silva clowning with Forrest Griffin.
    Heavyweight: JDS over Cain.

    Straweight, women: Jedrzejczyk over Esparza. Sheer dominance.
    Flyweight, women: Nothing yet.
    Bantamweight, women: Ronda destroying the unbeaten Cat Zingano in 15 seconds.
    Featherweight, women: Nunes over Cyborg.

    EPIC fight back in the day and one of the reasons why us old school Pride fans talk about “healthy” or “pre knee surgeries” Shogun

    The only correct answer for this is Phil Baroni on the night that he KO’d Dave Menne

    Fedor beating Nog half to death was pretty insane.

    HW Matt Mittrione when he KO'd a prime HW GOAT Fedor with his NFL punch.
    HW Hendo the way he KO'd a younger Fedor with his MW Hendo Bomb.
    HW Miocic the way he didn't get drafted into MLB and joined MMA to become their Heavyweight Champion.
    LHW Matt Hamill the night he beat Jon Jones with his 6 to 12 elbow headbutts.
    LHW Reyes the way he didn't get drafted into the NFL, trained MMA for a few years, and beat the LHW GOAT.
    MW Weidman the way he broke Anderson's leg with his patented Longo check.
    MW Robert Whitaker the way he gave GSP colitis.
    WW Matt Serra the way he made WW GOAT GSP tap to strikes while being 5'6 manlet.
    WW Nate Diaz the way he let Conor win the second fight in hopes that he can get payed in a third fight.
    LW Fat Can the way he KO'd BJ Penn in a street fight.
    FW Conor the way he KO'd FW GOAT Aldo with ease.
    BW Cody Garbrandt the way he made BW GOAT Cruz pillows punches look like pillow punches.
    Flyweight Sherdog the way they still didn't care after a Cejudo won two belts.
    Also,
    Takuya Eizumi for his unanimous decision win.

    To each there own but I have to massively disagree with a few of these. Anderson Silva over Forrest? Forrest is rumored to have been knocked out cold in training weeks before that fight! Jds over Cain? That sounds crazy as there has been many one hitter quitters in the heavy weight division so why would that be so special. And GSP over Hardy was a terrible performance by GSP and hear is why. Chris Lytle went on to submit Hardy after that. GSP is a goat and couldn't submit a kickboxer with almost no ground game and even admitted after that fight he tried to strong man his subs instead of using technique

    Silva clowned with him, just as he went on to clown with Bonnar. Who else, besides Garbrandt against Cruz, has done that to any opponent of any significant caliber?

    Cain was undefeated at the time.
