Jerome Le Banner vs Cyril Abidi is worth a watch, you can find it on dailymotion quite easily.
5 rounds of sheer hell for Abidi. I have idea how it went to the 5th round, Le Banner mauled Abidi in every round, and aside from an insignificant cut and some very nasty swelling over his right eye, Abidi did little to Le Banner. He was a moving punching bag at best. Sheer domination, but Abidi showed that when he cares (or hates his opponent enough) that his chin actually is pretty respectable. However, if you watch him fight Bonjasky, Bonjasky attacks him with half of JLB's intensity and within the first minute Abidi has already given up and lost the will to fight!
or how about when Rampage beat Abidi twice...Rampage is not even close to the striking ability of Le Banner; Abidi is an interesting fighter alright, i can't figure him out.
My favorite fight, although it is a short one, is when Le Banner shows Don Frye that he should stick to mma and really consider that maybe he isn't as good at everything as he thinks he is
also, Masato's victory over Buakaw in the finals in October was a great fight, i was entertained all 3 rounds and i would have had trouble calling a winner, both fighters fought their hearts out.
