    I remember enjoying Couture/Big Nog from a striking stand point.

    Stann/Wand too.

    Obviously not as memorable and legendary as some others that are bound to be mentioned, but Mark Hominick vs. Yves Jabouin at WEC 49 was fantastic.

    Eddie Wineland vs. Scott Jorgensen at UFC on FX 3 is up there too.

    at the time griffen vs bonner was an incredible battle.
    kz vs garcia was pretty intense too

    a. silva has had plenty of impressive fights that showcased his stand up... not battles but fun too watch lol

    Talk about a fight that delivered, just a shame it wasn't a five rounder.
