In the last few months, it seems like theres been some really big mismatches in both UFC AND PRIDE. What was the biggest mismatch in history? not the acual fight....for example Sanchez was a huge underdog but he didnt get owned like i thaught he would...but before that match the talk of EDDIE VS CRO COP......TITO VS KEN III...

Joe Lauzon anyone? That is the biggest one that comes to mind has he won by KO with the one punch. what was he like a huge underdog? i believe on polls less than 3 % thought he would win.

If I understand correctly, you're asking for the biggest mismatch, right?

So, if the underdog doesn't have to get the upset, and we're just talking about mismatches, I think I'd go with CroCop vs Dos Caras Jr...

That was just silly...

that was sick too. Clinch let go. Left High kick skims the head. Out and gone. one more punch in the face just to make sure.

Cro Cop-Minowa at last year's OWGP was kind of ridiculous too, iirc.

Minowa's crazy, although he did put Butterbean in an arm-bar, which is kinda cool...

He fought Giant Silva too. Which was kinda sick. A 185 guy fighting a guy who is over 7 feet tall and over 300lbs.

Has to be Sokoudjou vs Rogerio. Sok paid off @ +1250, if I'm not mistaken.

I didn't see it, but supposedly Cro-cop vs Nobahiko Takada was even worse. They didn't even put it on the dvd.

+1600 at some places.

Cro Cop didn't finish Takada.

I know, I'm talking about it being a mismatch though. Didn't Takada hurl himself on the mat repeatedly?

I know he was running away, haven't seen the whole fight but Mirko was getting exasperated about it. Kinda funny as he was running away from Hunt.

how about way back to the beginning. how many people outside of a few cities in brazil and japan thought that Royce was gonna beat old "one glove" fArt Jimmerson?

Lindland vs Fedor

I think its also Joe Lauzon vs. Jens Pulver. Who the heck heard of this geeky internet kid who Jens was supposed to knock out in the first minute of the fight? Well some one got knocked out in the first round of the fight but Joe Lauzon was the one with his hand raised in the end.
I think Soko vs Nog is a big one too.

dos caras had to be a huge underdog when he fought crocop. what a joke, a guy with a background in lucha libre vs a top tier k-1 kickboxer.
