UFC.com's Megan Olivi continues the My Favorite Fight series, with Joe Lauzon.

The Octagon moment that jumps out in my mind more than any other fight is when Randy Couture fought Tim Sylvia.

A few events before the Couture-Sylvia fight I had made my UFC debut at UFC 63 and beat Jens Pulver. About a month later at the next event, my brother Dan came out and fought Spencer Fisher. My brother took the fight on about 10 days' notice, and he lost.

Backstage after the fight, Tim was being a jerk and saying some really unnecessary things to my brother about his loss. He kind of kicked Dan when he was down. Tim went over to Dan and said “Nice 2 minutes, ha ha,” and walked away. After that I instantly named him my nemesis, and obviously I had this intense hatred for Tim Sylvia more than any other fighter on the planet.

So a few months later Randy and Tim fought at UFC 68, and we went over to my buddy Chris’ house to watch the fights with friends. Randy was supposed to be the wrestler and Tim Sylvia was supposed to be the elite striker. And there was Couture dropping Sylvia, just putting him on his butt right away.

When that happened, I jumped out of my chair. It’s actually probably the only time I’ve ever jumped out of my chair watching a fight. Randy was my hero from that point on.

Me and my brother Dan still talk about it to this day.

Joe Lauzon fights Jim Miller Saturday night at UFC 155 in the night’s co-main event, right before the heavyweight title rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez.

Ray Mercer putting him to sleep was a sight to behold, but the Couture moment was one of the best moments in ufc history. Phone Post

Anyone remember when Joe threw his own brother Dan out of the gym a couple years ago? Did they make up?

To be fair IIRC Fisher was his teammate at MFS at the time, he might not have realized it sounded so rude, if he came in assuming that Fisher would one-punch this inexperienced kid or something. That said I hated him back then too. In addition his unexciting and complete lack of charisma or aesthetic as champ, he seemed to have a blah personality and he got busted roiding which doesn't help.

Harder to hate him now that he is down on his luck and seems a lot more humble and just trying to fight to keep the rent paid.

I think that fight is one of the most memorable fights ivd ever seen as well. I remember everything about that night. Everyone in the house I was at jumped out of their seats when randy dropped him. Also probably the loudest crowd I've ever heard. Phone Post
