    Just thought I'd take the time to appreciate the greatest era in MMA history. From the prime and end of Fedor to the rise and fall of Cain. KOs by high kicks, knees, punches, GnP. Variety of submissions. Olympic wrestlers, BJJ specialists, K1 champions. It was truly a special time to have been a fan.

    I know that there are so many more great fighters and special fights from that time I haven't even thought of. Feel free to share any other moments that come to your mind.

    The end of Pride(2007) is roughly where I think this era begins. Fedor finally fought Arlovski and Sylvia. Brock and Mir in their primes. JDS, Cain and DC bursting on to the scene.

    As if roids isn't used these days. We have an openly using fighter who we consider the P4P GOAT.

    Still, regardless of whether your accusations of PED use only applies to this era or not, doesn't change the fact that they were faster, more agile, more athletic and more technical in that era.

    I'm sorry. I am a huge Cro Cop fan but I just couldn't think of a more iconic moment for him. Also, did it for the laughs.

    Definitely. Almost makes a case for legalizing PEDs.

    Blaydes probably beats every fighter named in OP, let alone Stipe who would wipe them all out on the same night.

    Ngannou in the first three minutes of a fight is the fastest 260+lb MMA fighter I've ever seen

    Obviously past that point he's useless but
