What MMA Matchups Should've Happened?   [View Full Version]
Poor_Franklin » Posted 6/7/11 4:52:00AM

Realistically, there's a few fights out there we all wish we could've seen, but for one, or many other reasons, never happened.

I have plenty, but one that always sticks out in my head is Chuck Liddell vs Mirko Crocop.

In their prime, this would have been an amazing fight, & undoubtedly, someone would have gone to sleep, but I didnt even need that. I wouldve given anything for the UFC to make this happen in 2009 or 2010. Sure, it wouldnt have been the same, but neither were winning, nor did they have anything to lose & it wouldve had so many people watch it anyways bc of how fucking awesome they both are!

So....what are yours?

Jones vs. Silva 2013...could still happen. But it would be one of the best fights in the history of the sport. Silva has made his claim as probably the best ever and Jones is on his way to challenging that. I would love to see them fight so one of them can have the top spot in the history of MMA. I know people want to see GSP vs. Silva, but the real match to be made is Silva and Jones.

CroCop vs Fedor II

Fedor vs Couture

GSP vs Anderson Silva

I feel like we've been given the vast majority of match ups that make sense. We've been spoiled as mma fans.

someone mentioned sanchez vs florian 2, id also like to see matt brown vs amir sadollah 2 aswell, have a feeling both of those fights could get turned around from the original. the latter is probably still slightly possible.

brock, mir and couture vs fedor. Would be happy with any of those.

thats the great thing about mma though, you dont really think too much about past match ups just because its currently so competitive and we are really spoilt with some of the match ups coming in the next few months too...but we can always ask for more.....jones vs Anderson lol
