Both excellent, but I prefer Maynard vs Edgar. Just goes to show what the lighter weight classes bring to the table!

easy answer Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard. It's the less satisfying result, but easily the more enjoyable fight to watch.

I enjoyed Cruz/Faber more only because of the style, excitement and activity Cruz brings. I had it 50-46 Cruz though so to compare what was in my opinion a lopsided loss for Faber to the drama that the Edgar/Maynard draw brought is tough as that comeback from the first round by Frankie was epic.

The Edgar/Maynard fight was a much much better contested matchup that we all sat on the edge of the couch for but I enjoyed the Cruz/Faber fight more because of the styles and the pace that they could keep up that Maynard/Edgar couldn't.

I'm actually surprised the poll is even, I assumed Edgar/Maynard would run away with a poll like this even though I voted for Cruz/Faber.

Cruz is one of my favorite fighters, and all of my friends hate him and were talking all sorts of trash about how Faber was going to win, and how Cruz is just a crybaby who is obsessed with Faber. It was pretty sweet to watch this fight with all of them, and then gloat a little.

Wow I picked Cruz/Faber just because of the pace and wider variety of action.

Both were awesome fights, I liked Grey vs Edgar a little better just because of the comeback, pretty wild to watch and doesn't happen very often.

That's exactly why I made it. I realized that a lot of the MMA sites were comparing Cruz vs. Faber to Edgar vs. Maynard, and saying that both fights are early Fight Of The Year favorites. I was curious as to how The Playground felt.
