UFC 100 is nigh, so it is time for us to decide the best event of the first 99. For the past few months, Yahoo! Sports has been counting down every single UFC, from the first event on November 12, 1993, to the last one, UFC 99 in Germany on June 13.

UFC 31 is my favorite ever. Couture vs. Rizzo, Newton's bulldog choke victory over Miletich, the breakthrough of Chuck Liddell, Mr. International's closing-seconds spinning backfist over Serra, Pete "I'll knock Semmy Schilt out" William's foolishness - great card front-to-back.

UFC 76 is also a personal favorite, although it's hard to like it sometimes because Rua lost his inaugural UFC contest.

It's about impossible for me to choose so I'll list a few that stick out like a sore thumb...

UFC 96: Jardine vs. Jackson
UFC 91: Lesnar vs. Couture
UFC 87: Seek & Destroy
UFC 62: Liddell vs. Sobral
UFC 60: Hughes vs. Gracie

Good call. That GSP/Mayhem fight was an absolute blood bath. Great event!

Yep, Hughes vs. Trigg 2 and Couture vs. Liddell 2 as well. Mayhem showed unbelievable heart in that fight against GSP. That's actually Dana's favorite UFC event ever, too.

I seriously think if these fighters give their all at UFC 100 it could challenge.

There are a few events I would pick over the choices they have. Here are justa few off the top of my head.


UFC 14 because it was truly the first event that it started to become a sport and move away from the no rules aspect.
UFC 33 because that when Zuffa took over and the UFC started to become what it is today.
UFC 52 - because there was so many great fights on this card.
UFC 60 - was also one that should have made the list as well. It was truly the changing of the guard.
TUF final 1 - It might not have a UFC number but this event truly changed the sport of MMA and helped make it the sport it is today. At first I couldn't stand all the new uneducated fans but I was happy to see the sport growing and without this event MMA in the US wouldn't be where it is today.

Now these are just a few and there are more I could list but I think the choices they have are very limited.

I gotta go with UFC 58. Stout vs Fisher, GSP vs BJ, and Franklin vs Loiseau, to this day I haven't been more entertained throughout a whole card. 84 has to be a close second.

ufc 91 probably was probably the best overall card because the undercard was so good, i was bored with the main and co main event. ufc 84 and 87 were probably the best in terms of big names, 92 was filled with hlights but my favorite has to be ufc 73

sean sherks vicious takedowns matched with hermes catching him the first 10 seconds of each round were awesome but the rets of the rounds were borin lol. andersons hlight ko of marquardt, noguiera coming back against heath. and rashad finding away to stay undefeated and force the tie against tito
