What are your top 5 fights in MMA history that had the most influence on the sport? Top 5 influential MMA fights, if you will. Come up with your own list or critique mine. I'm going to cheat with mine a little: 5. Rampage v Hendo: After Pride was purchased by the UFC, we finally get the first "Champion VS Champion" fight in the history of major MMA. The first "Undisputed Champion" even though the fight was not for the Pride belt. 4. Chuck Liddell v Randy Couture Trilogy: The trilogy that sets Chuck up as the first true superstar of Mixed Martial Arts in the USA and the face of the UFC for years to come. 3. Royce Gracie v UFC 1: Obviously the start of it all. Royce introduces the USA to Gracie Jiu Jitsu and the effect of submissions on what would soon become Mixed Martial Arts. 2. Fedor v Cro Cop: The very first and greatest Heavyweight spectacular, true "Superfight". The very top 2 fighters in the world meet in what turns out to be a great fight and one we only hope can be repeated ever again. 1. Forrest Griffen v Stephan Bonnar: This fight ended the first season of The Ultimate Fighter and basically launched the UFC to it's current level of popularity.
