    I was looking at the ufc unleashed game and some of the fights on there were good but they were the more recent ones. Just wondering what you guys thought were some of the most legendary fights in ufc history. Heres my list

    UFC 1 Royce Gracie vs Ken Shamrock

    this was probably the biggest fight in mma history because two guys who would become mma legends would square off for the first time. Both of these guys helped shaped the beginings of mma. Shamrock with the lions den and gracie and his family with the introduction of BJJ to the states.

    UFC 3 Kimo Leopold vs Royce Gracie
    Kimo was a much bigger guy and had some skills for the time. Royce managed to use his technique to nuetralize some of kimos streghnth but as the fight progressed kimo was powering through alot of technique and just out muscling royce. In the end royce managed to slap on an arm bar and pull out a victory.

    UFC 4 Dan Severn vs Royce Gracie
    This was a 15 minute long war where royce managed to pull off a win but he had to earn it. Dan Severn was in his prime and built like a freaking tank. Royce was much smaller and much weaker. He managed to hit a triangle and finish the fight after a long ass battle.

    UFC 5 Ken Shamrock vs Royce Gracie 2
    The fight went on for 36 minutes with no breaks. Shamrock has gone on record to say that he left feeling he won that match. It was ruled a tie but god damn these guys fought for 36 minutes. I dont think theres many people who would have had the streghnth of will to do that. To this day I think this is one of the most grueling fights in UFC history.

    UFC 12 Mark Coleman vs Don Frye 2

    I think Bonner VS Griffen is 1 of the biggest fights if not the biggest. That fight got people talking about the UFC and has made it what it is today.

    Not the best fight - but it was epic. Hell, my MOM even watched that fight.

    Bonner vs Griffin did more for the UFC then any fight ever has. It was an epic fight technically not awesome but a great slugfest.

    fedor vs cro cop was better IMO

    But UFC bought Pride and the music died. I like the cage better anyway

    best fight in mma history IMO. The ending was a little Meh when CC ended up on his back. But that fight was still epic;
