I'm not talking about upsets, but fights that you were absolutely in awe about, things like unexpected KO's, SUB's or decisions. Some of mine are:

Serra over GSP (Still cant believe that happened)
Gonzaga over CroCop (Kick heard round the world)
Bisping over Hamill (Absolutely B.S decision)
Forrest over Bonnar 1 (Put MMA on the map)
GSP over BJ 1 and 2 (Both epic fights)
Anything that Couture Does
BJ over Hughes (Wasnt supposed to happen)
Silva over Franklin (Couldnt belive how easy Silva beat him twice)
Lesnar over Carwin (Crazy way that fight ended)
Mir over Lesnar (Absolutely loved it)

Scott Smith vs. Pete Sell
Terry Martin vs. Chris Leben

And this probably should be moved to the Lounge, no?

You did say favorite shocker, but a shocker nonetheless from the other spectrum would have to be Kimbo vs. Houston Alexander, at least for me anyway. I was expecting a balls to the wall slugfest, and got nowhere near that.

NUMBER ONE ALL TIME for me would have to be when Rashad completely knocked Liddell out....i mean who saw that coming? SECOND when Silva got that sub over Sonnen with two mins to go.

Serra over GSP was probably the most shocking fight in MMA history still, with Werdum subbing Fedor 2nd.

One that hasn't been brought up yet which I can remember being really shocking was when Pete Williams KOed Marc Coleman with a head kick. At that point in MMA, head kicks were not a very common finish, and at the time Coleman was thought to be among the best while Williams was one step above a nobody.

To compare it to something from today, it would be like Kyle Bradley finishing Jon Fitch by flying spin kick.

Check my picks. UFC 88 Rashad Evans via round 2 KO....




For me their are a few that stand out.
Gonzaga over Crocop.
Igor Zinoviev over Mario Sperry
Randleman over Crocop
Serra over GSP
Coleman over Shogun. Going in everyone thought the weight change would be too much for Shogun but man oh man that fight was just bizarre.
Elvis over Sakuraba (fight 1)

Ncordless hit the nail on the head when he mentioned Williams over Coleman. Total shocker.

though he still lost the fight, Kimo shocked the world when he proved Royce was human.
Fujita over Mark Kerr

Sure, if by "world" you mean the hundreds in attendance and the dozens watching live on PPV.

lol.

I think the #1 Shocker has to be Napau high kick on CroCop. Followed by Serra KOing GSP.

Sure things like Rashad/Chuck, and Werdum/Fedor were incredible to see. But both were at least reasonable expectations when considering how the fight could play out. We knew that Rashad had fast hands and we knew that Werdum is one of the best BBJ players in HW MMA.

I don't think there was a single MMA fan on earth who didn't go "HOLY $HIT!!!" When they saw CroCop get floored like that by a taste of his own medicine. Gotta be #1 on my list.

Anderson getting the triangle on Sonnen was a surreal experience to watch.
