There are many epic moments in MMA that I wish I could re-live again. Some of these events may be sad for some people, but in general the events listed united mma fans as a whole, and they are one of the biggest moments in the sports history due to the hype and buzz at the time.
My personal top 5 and reasons why I like it
- UFC 229 - Conor vs Khabib - although I do like Conor and find his fighting style entertaining, he did take the trash talking too far and his antics such as throwing a metal dolly at a bus and calling Khabib's father a coward was way too much and was bad for the sports image. Seeing Khabib absolutely destroy him and choke him out was very satisfying, and hopefully it taught him to be humble
-Ronda Rousey getting knocked out by Holly Holm - Ronda was way too overhyped, arrogant and thought she was invincible. Glad she got her overrated ass kicked
-Conor vs Aldo - 13 seconds. The hype was insane, and the build up as well. Aldo really wanted to kill Mcgregor and rushed in like an idiot. Possibly the most embarrassing defeat in UFC history.
-Jon Jones vs DC 2 - Cormier was arrogant as hell and talked about how he is going to rip Jones head off. Full plays some gangster 2pac music for his entrance, puts on a mean face and then gets emasculated, destroyed with head kicks, brutal GNP then cries like a baby on national tv
-Amanda Nunes destroying cyborg in less than a minute was badass. She also whooped Ronda in 48 seconds. Truly the GOAT female fighter. If she spoke good english, was good looking and white the UFC would have made her a bigger star than Rousey.
