We are nearly halfway through 2008 already and I'd like to compile grades for events thus far. I'm only going to add ones that have been on this site. Feel free to tell me the ones I'm missing as I'm sure I'll overlook something obvious. Please grade them yourselves as well so we can get some sort of consensus on this board. I'm doing mine on a scale of 1-10.
1-4 - Lackluster, Average
5-6 - Good, Above Average
7-8 - Very good, Great
9-10 - Amazing, Best

My order:

UFC 80 (Stevenson Penn) - 8 (solid up and down)
Dream 3 - 7
UFN 13 (Lauzon Florian) - 7
WEC 32 (Condit Prater) - 7
UFC 81 (Lesnar Mir) - 7 (Many solid fights, but also 3 snoozers)
UFC 82 (Henderson Silva) - 6
Dream 1 - 6
IFL (Hieron Miller) - 6
World Victory Road - SenGoku 2 - 6
Elite XC: Kimbo vs Tank - 6
IFL (Nelson Imes) - 6
UFC 83 (Serra St Pierre 2) - 5 (saved by unaired prelims)
Strikeforce/Elite XC (Le Shamrock) - 5
UFN 12 (Swick Burkman) - 5 (saved by Pellegrino/Crane and Stephens/Miller)
WEC 33 (Marshall Stann) - 4
World Victory Road 1 (Gomi Ludwig) - 4
Cage Rage 26 - 4
Dream 2 - 3
Cage Rage 25 (Berry Shamrock) - 3

I don't remember each event well enough to rate them all, but the ones that really stick out in my mind are UFC 81, WEC 33 and Dream 3.

I liked the Shamrock / Le event a little more than you, but otherwise, a pretty good list...

can't wait to see what happens after Ill Will and Banned....

I really feel that the next group of events are definately the ones ive been looking forward to the most. UFC 84 has 4 great fights at the top that i definately want to see. The next WEC event has the Faber-Pulver fight which i want to see because i want to see how good Faber really is. Im very curious about what EliteXC will look like on CBS and how it will do in the ratings. And the Affliction event has the potential to be the card of the year. I think these may be the 4 events i am most excited about all year.

I agree, that's why I decided to make one now. The events of the second half of the year should blow these away. The next WEC looks great as does Affliction, UFC, and future Dream events.
