    Mine are Kongo/Barry, Edgar/Maynard III, and Silva/Sonnen I.

    So many great ones though.

    Kongo vs Barry was the best ever for me, because of the way it happened.

    Hughes vs Trigg 2, loved it and didn't like Trigg so I was happy.

    Russow vs Duffee, haha that fight was hilarious, Russow was just a punching bag for 3 rounds and did basically nothing and threw 1 slow stiff baby punch and knocks Duffee out cold, haha and then the hammerfist :eek:

    from your list ^

    Another great comeback fight back in older UFC days was Tank Abbott vs Don Frye, Tank was beating the shit out of Frye, knocked him down and was lighting him up on the feet and Fryes face was hanging off, and then Tank slips over himself and Frye chokes him out. Epic fight even though it only lasted like 2 minutes

    Silva/Sonnen 1 is the greatest comeback ever. It's the only fight on the list that I was invested in. Even though Edgar didn't win, his 2nd fight against Maynard was a great comeback as well.

    The Nog/CC comeback is my all time favorite in MMA but since TS specified UFC fights I went with Nog/Sylvia

    WTF! I voted the same. :eek::eek::eek:

    Was about to pick Elkins vs Bektic because it was recent but came to my senses and chose Edgar vs Maynard III instead.

    I was blessed to witness Silva/Sonnen, Lesnar/Carwin, Condit/MacDonald, Russow/Duffee and Leben/Akiyama in person.

    I only had enough poll options for UFC fights. There's so many great comebacks in other orgs, remember Smith getting smashed then coming back KO'ing Cung Le in Strikeforce, or EliteXC, can't remember?

    Also Lawler/Manhoef was a good one, too.

    My all time favourite comeback though is Kazushi Sakuraba/Kestutis Smirnovas, what a fucking comeback that was.
