I was wondering everyones favorite rivalries/feuds, I'm including team, fighter, and promotion feuds.


My faves-

#1- Tito vs Ken- I came into this sport in 2005. The first fight I ever saw was Hughes vs Trigg I and II. Then I stumbled onto a little show in 06, TUF 3 made me an instant hardcore fan.... And like everyone else I laughed my ass of during the verbal wars, especially Ken calling Tito a monkey as his best insult at the end of the show lol.

#2- UFC vs Pride (Who has the best fighters?)-
considering ---
Gomi never came over,
Pride had no 170,
Anderson was from Pride, (Ironically Hendo faught in the UFC before pride so it was kind of upside down when he faught Anderson,
Wandy and Shogun both tanked,
and Fedor never faught Randy,
the world may never know.

#3- Kazushi Sakuraba vs the Gracies- He was in his prime, and he was like the greasy dude off of family guy, while mirking several Gracies "ya all cant catch me!!!" lol EPIC!


#4- Kimbo Slice vs THE WORLD!!!!- and he lost lol Definantly a mentionable during any discussion of MMA in the late 2000's. Need I say much?

#5- BJ vs GSP, the other slippery dude from Family Guy. o wait, uh oh! I mean the guy who has had crazy untrue accusations made by only 5 of his last 7 opponents that he greased up (WHICH IS ENTIRELY UNPROVEN!) LOL just messin around. Obviously this rivalry is gonna last.

Good topic, i really have a hard time picking a favorite...

I'm going back to the early days, and to some semi-recent.

I really liked the whole Mark Coleman/Don Frye rivalry.

Wandy vs Chuck. Most hyped up fight of all time for me and it was totally worth the wait, even if both guys had slipped down the rankings by the time they actually fought.

#1 all time for me is Saku vs Gracie's. the had to invent a special match just so that they could settle the feud...it wound up being the longest match in MMA history with Sakuraba winning when Royce's corner threw in the towel after 90 minutes. that rivalry had controversy (Saku vs Royler), ground breaking fights (Saku vs Royce), longevity (5 fights) and even history (Kimura vs Helio). the Gracie's never tapped against Saku because they had too much pride...i'm sure Royler's and Renzo's shoulders are regretting that decision.

#2 for me is HH vs Chute Box...who can forget Coleman stomping out Wanderlei? there was a lot of bad blood there...probably one of the only rivalries where i was legitimately scared for the fighters' lives.

You they had one heated moment that was more caused by a fight between their fighters then something between them. I got the impression they liked each other and it was business. rivals require hate. IMO
