This is their list, While I agree With at least 75% of the fights on this list, I dont agree with the order.

here is their list...then heres mine

FS1 25 Greatest UFC Fights-
25. Kongo vs. P Barry
24. M Johnson vs. J Gaethje
23. Penn vs. GSP
22. Rousey vs. Carmouche
21. Korean Zombie vs. Poirier
20. Jedrzejcyk vs. Gadelha 2
19. Brock vs. Carwin
18. Swanson vs. Choi
17. Akiyama vs. Leben
16. Forest vs. Rampage
15. Sanchez vs. Melendez
14. Alvarez vs. Gaethje
13. Lawler vs. Condit
12. Forrest vs. Bonnar 1
11. Hughes vs. Penn
10. Hunt vs. Bigfoot
9. Hughes vs. Trigg 2 .
8. Silva vs. Sonnen
7. Jones Vs Gus
6. Liddell Vs Silva
5. Edgar Vs Gaynard 2
4. Lawler Vs Rory 2
3. Henderson Vs Rua 1
2. McGregor Vs Diaz 1
1. McGregor Vs Diaz 2


Honorable Mentions-
*Aldo vs Mendes 2
*Dillashaw Vs Garbrandt
*Rose Vs Jedrzejcyk

I dont Agree With-
Rousey vs. Carmouche(Important but not one of the Greatest Fights ever)
McGregor Vs Diaz 1(Huge Upset at the time, Good fight, Not one of the greatest let alone #2)
Alvarez vs. Gaethje(Great fight, Not a top 25)





Mine Rankings at least 1 through 7


1. Jones Vs Gus(The Greatest Title fight ever IMO)
2. McGregor Vs Diaz 2(My Favorite Fight of All time)
3. Lawler Vs Rory 2(has IMO the single greatest moment in UFC history at the end of the 4th round when Rory and Lawler stare at each other)
4. Henderson Vs Rua 1(Incredible)
5. Silva vs. Sonnen 1(One of the greatest comebacks ever after one of the most surprising Dominate performances ever)
6. Hunt vs. Bigfoot(This fight Literally defies Logic and Human Ability, Theres simply no way either of these fighters should have been able to take the shots and punishment they took by HW fighters as big as they are)
7. Swanson vs. Choi (IMO the greatest "Firefight" ever, The best Wild, rockem-sockem robots type fight of all time)

after this it gets too close

Off the Top of my head, a couple that MIGHT be in my top 25 that arent listed here-
Hendricks Vs Lawler 1
Aldo Vs Mendes 2(definitely in the top 25)
Aldo vs Holloway 1
Weidman Vs Machida
Dillashaw Vs Barao 1
Hendricks Vs GSP
Edgar Vs Maynard 3
Edgar Vs Aldo 1
W. Silva Vs Stann
Condit Vs Diaz
Cruz Vs Dillashaw(Definitely in My Top 25)
Matt Brown Vs E Silva
Holm Vs Rousey
Vera Vs Shogun(extremely Underrated, very fun fight)

what do think about this list and how is yours different?

Cool, thanks for sharing this.

I'd go crazy trying to figure out which fights I feel are the best. Most of them have been covered in here and by you. I definitely don't think, McGregor vs. Diaz (1 or 2) belongs in the top 10. Kind of crazy to me they're the top 2.

The one fight that will always stand out to me was when GSP won the welterweight belt for the first time with his head kick ko over Matt Hughes.
That was a big moment for me as a fan in this sport.

Just my personal preference here but my top 5 would look like this:

1. Edgar vs Gaynard II
2. Henderson vs Shogun I
3. Robbie Lawler vs Rory MacDonald II
4. Jones vs Gustafsson
5. Hunt vs Bigfoot

1-4 were easy for me but that 5th spot could go to several different fights. So many back and forth wars over the years

Come on UFC! McGregor v. Diaz fights take the 2 top spots - seriously? Those were good fights but there is no way they are #1 and #2.

Good list but not correct. This is the UFC machine trying to promote fighters. McG with top 2 EVER!?!?! Fuck off. I am disappointed that Hendo/Shogun is not up there. I do think Diaz/McG #1 definitely should be high on the list because of the upset factor. And how come there's nothing in the early ZUFFA era? Gracie/Severn, Shamrock/Gracie (UFC 5), Severn/Shamrock.
