In your opinion, what was the best rematch of all time, OR what would make the best rematch of all time.

I say Machida/Shogun 2. Shogun proved that he was the real deal in this bout.

Runner Up : Liddell/Couture 3. Liddell proved that he can beat a 3 time heavyweight champ, and a 2 time light heavyweight champ. Not once, but twice.


Best rematch if it happened : Couture/Liddell 4. They should do TUF 15, and have one final bout together. This would be Chucks last fight ever. I know, hes retired, but how awesome would this be? This is one of the only Ultimate Fighters I would watched.

The seasons I watched :

Season 1 : Couture/Liddell
Season 3 : Shamrock/Ortiz
Season 5 : Penn/Pulver
Season 8 : Mir/Big Nog
Season 9 : Hendo/Bisping
Season 10 : Rampage/Rashad
Half of Season 12 : Koscheck/St-Pierre

I found Season 10 and 12 kind of boring. My favorite was Couture/Liddell though. Absolute classic. I do plan on watching Lesnar/Dos Santos though. I think it will bring more potential to the series.

For the poll, my answer is Couture/Liddell 4, as I stated above.

To be honest I don't really want to see any of these rematches. Machida vs Shogun maybe, but not until Machida strings several wins together.

These were just suggestions. What rematch would you wanna see?

At the moment I'm looking most forward to Edgar vs. Maynard II. But in the future I would like to see a few rematches.

Rampage vs. Griffin II
Lesnar vs. Carwin II
Overeem vs. Kharitonov III (one that a lot of people might not think of that is very possible)
Rampage vs. Hendo II
Rampage vs. Arona (Although it will never happen)
Alvarez vs. Aoki II (Just for sweet revenge)
Alvarez vs. Kawjiri II

I'm running out of ideas but those are a few of the ones I've got in mind.

Also, not knocking your choices, I'm sure a lot of people are excited for those fights.

The best rematch of all time to me was Liddell/Ortiz 2.

Ortiz had his ass handed to him, and STILL kept talking smack. What did Liddell do? Beat Ortiz's ass AGAIN, and Ortiz STILL KEPT TALKING. You can't shut the guy up, but you could tell from then on that Liddell owned Ortiz, and Ortiz knew it, no matter how much he talked. For example, on the Liddell/Ortiz season of TUF, when Ortiz was walking toward Liddell's team, you could see the fear in Ortiz's eyes when Liddell jumped from the octagon and ran at him. He just kept yelling and backing up, but the fear on his face was there.


As for a rematch I'd like to see, nothing would be better then watching Machida tool Ortiz again.

Gotta go with Rampage vs Machida. The 3rd round started to get good I would love to see a 4th.

In the UFC, the second Trigg/Hughes fight is probably my favorite rematch. The fight was filled, in the space of four minutes, with everything a great fight needs.

IMO, I would like to see a full out brawl between Rampage and Evans. Like a straight up bang fest, then we will see who can talk the most S#!&.

I suppose a rematch I would like to see would be Werdum/Alistair. Or Penn/Fitch.
