UFC 120 - First Main Event for Bisping and Akiyama on a major ppv. And it was free.

UFC 121 - First Mexican Heavyweight champ crowned

UFC 122 - Noted for being one of the worst cards ever, and it was free.

UFC 123 - First event in Detroit since UFC 9.

UFC 124 - Proclaimed the worst injury to ever obtain while in the octagon, Josh Koscheck had a broken orbital bone, and stated on the weekend of UFC 127, that he still has nerve damage to the face.

UFC 125 - Main Event was a draw

UFC 126 - First round KO in main event, and Jon Jones got the title shot on 6 weeks notice. Anderson still undefeated

UFC 127 - Main Event was a draw

UFC 128 - Jon Jones became the youngest champ

UFC 129 - Most people ever expected to be there. 55 thousand. And its expected to make 11million at gates.

Dang.

I still think Big Timmy's broken arm was the worse injury sustained in the UFC.

I think Corey Hill might have a thing or two to say about that.

Well played. Or how about Sean Salmon getting his neck broken from a Rashad Evans head kick? Rich Franklin also broke Nate Quarry's neck when he knocked him out.

Good thread though! Historic events indeed.

I don't think thats true I never heard either of them having a broken neck. I followed Salmon back then since he fought in eastern ohio. I remeber he went to flordia with his family right after it happened. I had met him at NAAFS events and was worried he was hurt. Quarry had chronic back problems that he had to have fixed but it didn't have anything to do with Franklin

But a Broken Orbital? And he still has nerve damage? Dayum. Broken through skin prolly takes it though.

Corey Hill's injury is the worst. No comparison.

Bisping has been in the main event on more than once. Against Evans, which was PPV and against Leben.
