Great thread. I loved the Rea - Franklin fight. Rea actually put Franklin in some trouble in that fight.
Loved this quote from one of the commentators: "You need to finish this shit to win the fight". Cool that Matt Hughes was reffing the fight.

Thanks so much! This is a great resource! I just watched the Couture/Horn fight. Pretty good. Interesting how Horn stood on the lower rope to get a better angle on Couture - I've never seen that done before. Looked like Horn's conditioning was nothing compared to The Natural's. Great fight!

The AA fights aren't too hard to find.

The only AA fight I have a hard time finding is the Ricco Rodriguez one. I saw it once a long time ago before I really started following the sport.

If anyone can link me, PM me please!

I'm not saying any of them are hard to find, I just want to start a libraryesque thread of fights most people may not have seen... I just chose those fighters at random.

Understandable, and I realize there is a video thread stickied, I guess the best I can do is link this thread to it, or maybe you can just merge it...
