For hardcore MMA fans I think GSP-Penn was the most hyped fight as it featured 2 of the 3 most popular p4p guys at the time.
Which means the supposed, well who are we kidding, we wanna see it regardless the outcome next Sat. with Fitch, fight with Penn at the end of the year would make that I think, even more anticipating than the GSP/Penn 1.
Now as bad as Syvia got thrashed by Fedor, I think the Couture fight lost a little of it's luster, otherwise that was building up to be one of the biggest.
Tito vs. Ken 1, Tito vs. Chuck 1 and 2, and Tito vs. Randy were some of the biggest, and otherwise anticipated fights in UFC/MMA history.
The Liddell/Silva matchup was the fight I had waited for the longest though, so that one is up there. I really wish that would of been a Champ. fight, even though Chuck would've still took a decision I believe, but it lived up to the hype, and Wandy was reborn in the UFC/MMA scene here in the states.
I'm sure the Silva/Sakuraba fights, or any of Sakuraba/Yoshida fights in Japan were as anticipated as any fight here, in the U.S.
For the future...
Shogun/Coleman 2, Wandy/Tito 2?, Wandy/Liddell 2, Any fight between the Spider, the Prodigy, or Rush would be up there, Faber moving up for BJ maybe,...and just for sh@#$ and giggles...I'm anticipating a Fedor/Kimbo Slice execution. How bout that one?
