Royce Gracie vs Kazushi Sakuraba 2
Both legends, but not sure how that was meaningful. Both are pretty old and no where near the top 10. Royce was on steroids so it wasn't exactly a fair fight either.
I guess it depends on your definition of meaningful. I looked at it from the standpoint of interest rather than how it affects rankings/titles. The TS used the phrase "dream match" so that's what I went with. I looked at it from the perspective of the history and all that was riding on the fight with respect avenging losses or maintaining legacies.
As for the steroids, come on, I think the question was geared more toward the hype of the fight rather than afterward. Similarly with how the fight pans out, I think, does not necessarily justify a "dream match"
As for not being in the top ten, I agree totally, but I don't think there are any fights listed in this thread where both fighters were ranked top ten.... at least not on this site.
....well there's my justification.
