Of all the major fights coming up over the next two months -- and there are plenty of them -- none is more anticipated than the UFC 94 main event of Georges St. Pierre vs. B.J. Penn II.

Silva vs Liddell was a long time in the making. 5 years ago it was all MMA fans talked about...

There's a good argument for it being the most anticipated bout. Simply because these are two of the biggest fan favorites. GSP being #1 and BJ being #3 on the Playground favorites at least. Both fighters also have huge nuthugger followings, so essentially you have a lot of people that aren't "in-between" who they want to win, but are extremely hopeful their favorite comes out on top.

I'm really looking forward to the fight, but it's not the bout I have most been anticipating. I agree with the majority, Fedor vs Cro Cop for me was my most anticipated bout.

I think that right now this is the best fight that could be put together in all of MMA.

GSP vs BJ 2 is one of the best and most anticipated matchups in recent history and any thoughts overwise is a bit nearsided.

You can talk about Liddell Silva all you want but it has already happened. And the biggest problem with that fight was it wasn't a title fight. I feel this is the most anticpated fight in the history of MMA. You have two of the top five pound for pound fighters going at it.

I thought it was a shame to say Couture Lesnar was going to be off the charts PPV, this one actually is (although it was impressive numbers and it was a great fight). You have best against best, and it will be a war IN A "REAL" TITLE FIGHT. Easily contender of best fight in MMA history.

cc/fedor...really? CC's probably already going to get dominated by Overeem, i can just imagine what would happen vs Fedor.

He already fought fedor before and came close at some points.
