Tito and Ken Shamrock was crap, even though they really didnt like each other, the first were boring after the first one, even though Tito isnt exactly great, Shamrock was just past it, so they made for really poor fights.
The Arlovski / Timmy thing was crap too, the first fight was great, the second was terrible and the 3rd was just downright boring.
Chuck / Tito was great though. Watching Tito duck for so long, then Chuck finally getting a shot, then destroying Tito. Then Tito coming back for the second fight, and getting mauled allover again. I dont even like Chuck that much, but he put on a great show both times, and shut Tito's big mouth on two occasions, so I respect him for that.
Uh on the Tim/Andrei part..
THE THIRD FIGHT WAS NOT BORING, you could hear Tim's jaw being hit so hard it echoed throughout the arena, it had an EXCITING and UNPREDICTABLE ending that nobody saw coming. It ended in the first round, so I do not even call that "Boring"
I personally enjoyed the Rivalry of Randy/Chuck.
Sure both of these guys had tremendous amount of respect for one another, but when they stepped into the octagon they layed it all out, Randy defeated Chuck in which RANDY was a huge underdog, and then the 2nd and 3rd fights when Chuck knocked him out was incredible, that was a great FIGHT rivalry that was not personal.
Mirko Cro Cop/Fedor would also be in that category.
Wanderlei Silva and Dan Henderson as well.
But I mean if we are talking personal rivalries, what better to watch or hear about Dana White and Tito Ortiz? I mean this two guys have this hatered for one another, and this makes the Shamrock/Ortiz fued look like a Rich Franklin/Matt Hughes slumber party.
Its hard to go a week or two without hearing Dana calling Tito names like a 5th grader and Tito replying back " I can't respond, I don't want to get injured" that is the most fun rivalry right now to watch.
Ken Shamrock and Don Frye though, I mean that still today I believe has alot of heat behind it.
