    Post up the fights people should watch that happened so far this year. Doesn't matter what organization or weight class it was in, put the event though so people can find it easier or put a link to it if you have it.

    Ones that come to mind for me are:

    UFC 58: Nate Marquardt vs Joe Doerkson
    UFC 62: Hermes Franca vs Jamie Varner
    WFA - King of the Streets: Ivan Salaverry vs Art Santore
    WFA - King of the Streets: Quinton Jackson vs Matt Lindland

    None of the pride fights that I saw this year really jumped out at me by just sitting here.

    UFC: 61 Yves Edwards vs. Joe Steveson. Horror movies aren't as bloody as that fight.

    I think Sherk vs Florian and Couture vs Belfort(3) were both bloodier if I remember right.

    Obviously Silva's destruction of Franklin is a must see. Last UFC.

    I'd have to disagree. Sherk/Florian was bloody, but no where near the level of Edwards bleeding skull. Couture vs Belfort 3, I don't even remember.

    that was insanity, both guys were just standing there in the rind doing nothing. Cyborg is off and on in his fights. That was a good fight, I dont think that was KO that was a ref stoppage due to lack of energy left.

    Agreed on most of these. Maybe its because of my Russian heritage but I really enjoyed watching Aleks/Sergei at the last round of OWGP. And Nog/Barnett was just an incredible battle.
