One mans opinion of the top 4 that should have never happened.
(if you dont wanna read the whole article, here's his rankings)
#4 Shamrock/Ortiz Part III
#3 Fedor/Circus Freak Choi
#2 Sakuraba/Wandy Part III
I can get behind that list except for the circus freak bit
Hughes/Royce was a fight that needed to happen, I'm going to disagree with him on that one. Royce faught much bigger guys than Hughes, and won, although Hughes is incredibly talented, that event was just to show all the UFC fans that times have changed. Its like saying that Mark Coleman vs Brock Lesnar is a fight that shouldn't happen, I can't tell you how psyched for that fight I actually am.
I think that the Choi fight was whatever, I kind of wished Fedor would have fought someone at least in the top 10, but it really showed some similarities to me between him and Randy, he faught the biggest guy in MMA and won, props no matter what. Shamrock/Ortiz III is very true, the only Shamrock that should have rematched Tito is Frank. I'm going to go ahead and vote that Tito Rashad shouldn't have happened, two fighters who don't push the pace to really win doesn't make for the best matchup. Also I'm going to go ahead and say that the Gannon Hinkle fight shouldn't have happened because Gannon was tough, but not fit, the UFC is for dedicated athletes, you don't look like Tank Abbott if you train every day. SPEAKING OF TANK, I think that the Tank/Kimbo fight was the most worthless fight ever, I knew from the second that match was made Kimbo would KO tank early in the first round. Thats not even based off any props for Kimbo (not that he isn't a great fighter), but Tank is long out of his prime if he ever had a prime while in his MMA career. The Kimbo/Tank fight had great marketing and everything with the street certification and all that jazz, and Kimbo and Tank both being famous for never turning a fight down, the fact is that if Bas Rutten really wants to show his pupil off he won't keep putting him up against heavyweight has-beens and nobodies, he can't just keep feeding him, Kimbo is going to have to earn the respect of the true MMA community.
