    Usually when you are a champion of the ufc you're there for a reason and if you're going out you're going out with a bang. This wasn't the case for Jones vs Rua or Cain versus Cigano.

    What previous champ do you feel was more decimated whilst handing over the throne. Personally I give the edge to Jones because shogun tapped to strikes but Idk...Cain just really beat on JDS from start to end.

    I love Franklin, but you'd have to throw his name into that hat.

    Jones Rua imo. Rua got finished and before that he was totally dominated. He stuffed no TDs and didn't get back up once.

    Franklin vs Silva is the only real winner here.

    Of the two you listed I'll say Jones/Shogun by a fair margin, but all time it has to be Silva/Franklin I. That was a beating for the ages.

    I'd say Rua/Jones. That was a one-sided beatdown starting in the first 10 seconds. JDS at least landed some punches, stuffed some takedowns and had a couple moments. Shogun didn't even come close to doing anything in that fight. Worse than Franklin/Silva I in my opinion as well.

    Have to go with Jones/Rua. Silva/Franklin was more shocking tho.

    Great thread TS! It's close between Jones/Rua and Silva/Franklin for me. I really thought Rua was going to be the champ for a long long time. I thought his experience was going to get him through Jon Jones. So it was quite shocking to me, to see Jones just completely rag doll him like that. I don't think I would have ever expected to see Shogun lose a fight like that.

    But I think Silva/Franklin still takes it. This may be a little dramatic, but I remember thinking that it was like watching an execution.
