    Hello Sherbros, just want to get your thoughts on the most entertaining fight in UFC Middleweight history. As in terms of overall action or excitement. One of my first choices would be Machida vs. Weidman, what do you think?

    I got Silva vs Diaz as the funniest, and most fucked up.

    Silva vs Maia was pretty fucked as well.

    The one I looked forward to the most was Franklin v Anderson 1 and it turned out to be pretty exciting.

    To be fair, it was 24 minutes 30 seconds of, "Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening", followed by 30 seconds of, "Oh yeah, Chael can't defend triangle chokes."

    Wanderlei vs Brian Stann was wild. Fight of the year, wasn't it?

    Belfort-Bisping
    Silva-Stann
    Bisping-Le
    Franklin-Loiseau
    Tanner-Baroni

    Middleweight has a rich history of great fights.

    Good call, that fight had me jumping up and down while it was happening live. Back and forth action, drama, weirdness. That fight had it all.

    I gotta give it to Silva vs. Leites, the unfulfilled suspense was just too much.
