CC / Hendrix doesn't belong.

Biggest thing... Wanderlei / Stann is one of the greatest fights in history and easily #1 in 2013. Phone Post 3.0

Wanderlei vs Stann #1

Both guys rocked and throwing massive leather, a real back and forth war.


So was Bermudez and Grice, just more.

Stann v Wand was a flailing melee fest. It was not as much a dynamic fight.


Hunt v JDS was a much better fight, dynamically competitive and showcasing skill over mere throttle, and comprised of intricate subtleties in either competitor's game, approach, and mid-fight adjustments. How is that fight not on the list?

Yeah, and Healy v Miller was another fight that was better than some on that list.

What the hell is that commentator talking about re: Brian Stann? That was just stump-dumb.

Stann didn't go into that fight with the attitude of "I have a better gas tank/chin", he went in to put on a goddamn show and MAN, was it ever a goddamn show. Had he gone in with a real gameplan and strategy to win, it would've been a massive disappointment. I firmly believe that had Stann gone in like this was a must-win, he would have. Instead he went in and fought Wand's fight and made it something very special.

Seeing Wand and Stann go at it like that in Japan was magic. This is one of those fights that'll forever be part of Wand's legacy and Stann ended up gaining a ton of fans in the process.

Yea its funny people keep saying should have boxed more technically. Yet he did better when they were brawling. When the pace slowed and became more technical Wandy knocked him out.
