I will do my top 5 moments. To ufc live events I have watched

1. Begging my boss who is a fan of ufc to give me a few days off to go to vegas
And go see wandy vs chuck. Live!!! Best fight ever!!!

2. Watching hendo knock out. Bisping out cold!!! And I took the pic of the punch thrown at bisping which knocked him out

3. Seeing a crap card in 115 degree heat in vegas and seeing rampage and griffin go toe to toe for 5 rounds , the fight making up for the rest of the card

4. Going to portland last year too see couture fight just once live before he retires. And seeing a hell of a fight between big nog and him

5. And going to my first ufc fight. Watching two major upsets happen in
Jardine beating lidell and griffin choking out shogun. Man was I pissed off!!!

my list is gonna be more of like every time there was a changing of the guard an enhancement in the sport

1. BJ Penn beating Matt hughes no more one dimensional fighters started learning to be complete fighters i think hughes realized that too after that fight he changed his fighting style some

2. GSP beating Matt Hughes just proved that there is a new breed of fighters starting with GSP

3 Frank Mir beating NOG and then Cain beating NOG just proving what it takes to be in the HW division
