Trying to do a bit of last minute shopping on the UFC 92 card (like how I threw in that Christmas reference?), and I'm wondering what members of the PG think is the essential fight to watch for each fighter on the card.

I've seen a bunch, but I'm willing to watch a few more again.

Main Card

Griffin -
Evans -

Nog -
Mir -

Dollaway -
Massenzio -

W.Silva -
Jackson -

Kongo -
Al Turk -

Undercard

Okami -
Lister -

Hardonk -
Wessel -

Hamill -
Andy -

Chonan -
Blackburn -

Evensen -
Barry -

Thanks for your help. Props to people who mention great fights.

well for the main 3 fights id say:
griffin- griffin/bonnar 1- THE fight that launched mma into the mainstream
evans- evans/liddell - easily his biggest win, and in stunning fashion

mir - mir/timmy - title fights define careers, and this was mirs biggest win easily
nog - i thought about one of the fights with fedor, but im going to say his fight with sapp, it perfectly illustrates his resilience

wandy - either fight with rampage shows his brutality, and his style of coming straight forward perfectly
rampage - either fight with chuck would qualify, as with evans, if you take down the biggest star out there its a great win for the career. his fight against arona is a VERY close second.

I would've recommended these as well. Also, check out Forrest's fight with Rampage for the title that happened earlier this year. That is, assuming you haven't seen it..

Seen most of these, but they're all still great. Going back to watch Nog vs. Sapp right now.

Griffin - Shogun/Rampage were both excellent performances with great outcomes for Forrest.

Evans - Liddell/Ortiz were huge fights for Rashad, even though he didnt win the ortiz fight, he showed he can hang with the elite, as for chuck, rashad proves he carries power.

Nogueira - Bob Sapp, Cro Cop, Nogs heart is what makes him so good.
Mir - Big Tim, he showed he has great technique and strong bone locks.

W. Silva - Rampage1 and 2, Fujita, these show Silva's brutality
Rampage - Chuck1 and 2, Henderson, All were awesome perfomances

Dolloway - All the TUF Fights he had and JT
Massenzio - All I can think of is McFedries

Kongo - CC, and Assuerio Silva
