Only two fights have ever made me cringe while watching them. Faber/Aldo and Marquardt/Saffiedine.
what about glover vs maldonado.. that whole fight was cringe worthy, worst beat down i have ever seen
Only one fight has ever made me say "stop the fight" at the television. It was one of the early UFC tournaments back when I was in high school. I was young and stupid (not that all high schoolers are stupid like I was), so I had a blood lust back then and a high fortitude for violence, so my friend's were stunned when they heard me say they should stop the fight.
It was one of the Gracie brothers who was getting kneed in the top of the head while he was laying down... over and over for so long. That was legal back then. I thought the UFC might see it's first death and genuinely wanted them to stop the fight.
One that made me cringe was that Sumo wrestler who had his nose broken. It was bleeding profusely but I didn't notice all the blood until he grazed his face against the cage while falling down, which gave the illusion that he snagged his teeth on the fence and it ripped some of his teeth out. I was cringing until the replays showed it was a punch to the nose that caused all the blood.
