Gonna take some heat for having feelings in this thread, but I just wanted to address the side of the emotional spectrum people seem to shy away from. Charles winning reminded me that as a fan, this is a crazy sport to watch. These guys are putting their brains and bodies on the line, literally fighting for a better life. In the case of Charles Oliveira, you have a guy who has basically grown up in the UFC, who has come from nothing in the favelas (similar to Aldo), to Worldwide-notoriety as UFC-champ. I felt like people were writing off Charles all fight-week, basically going with Chandler’s narrative that Charles is a quitter and will definitely fold to his pressure. Anyway I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen Charles fight, not to mention the ups and downs he’s had in his career, and I just felt his emotion when he won, I wasn’t sobbing or anything but I can say I was emotional and got teary-eyed for sure. It was like a Rocky movie-moment for me. The other time I remember like this was when Holly head-kicked Rhonda. There have been some really crazy moments in the UFC, and fighters get emotional in the cage all the time. My question is, are there fights you remember that as a fan made you emotional?
