With six months and a week in the bank, 2007 has already been one of the most eventful years in the history of the UFC, and that’s not even including what’s happened inside the Octagon.

Pretty accurate.

I might switch #1 with #2.

Take out Chuck / Rampage at #5 and put Koscheck / Diego at #5

What a retarded list:

Jackson vs. Liddell - not an upset at all

Okami vs. Swick, and Jardine vs. Houston - "upsets" because two Tuffers lost. When are people going to catch on to the fact that being a Tuffer and being a good fighter are two completely different concepts?

Couture vs. Syliva - a real upset only got an "honorable mention"

Koschek vs. Sanchez - how is that an upset? Their first fight Sanchez got his ass handed to him, their rematch just sealed the deal

Couture vs. Syliva should have been on the list even though just becuase of the way Couture won. Dominated 5 rounds and he actually rocked Tim who had an enormous reach on him. Great story and a match which i can watch again and again seeing Syliva fall down from that punch was amazing to see. Then as the fight ended Syliva's eye kept getting bigger and bigger as Couture was keeping busy on top.

Man couture sould be near first, and rampage shouldn't even be on that list.

Aslo, how is Okami.V. Swick an upset? Okami has faced better fighters and is more experienced...
