5. Frank Shamrock vs. Cung Le (3/29/08)
Someone had to shut Frank Shamrock up. Thank God for Cung Le. Shamrock stayed true to his promise to stand and trade with the San Shou sensation, though maybe it would have been a better idea if he didn’t. He got kicked in ways he never imagined until a broken arm forced him to give in after three rounds of action, just when it was starting to get really good. Watching these highlights just makes you mad at Cung Le for running off to be a movie star instead of sticking around in MMA for a while. It also makes you wonder what would happen to Frank’s new braces if he got kicked in the face like that now. Perhaps we’ll never know.
4. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Forrest Griffin (7/5/08)
They don’t get much closer than this light heavyweight championship fight at UFC 86. Simply mentioning who you think won the bout (cough*Griffin*cough) is enough to start a message board argument that will produce countless personal attacks and ultimately accomplish nothing, but that just proves what a close battle it was. Five rounds of back-and-forth action led to a unanimous, though oddly scored decision victory for Griffin, and a few sleepless nights for Jackson. “Rampage” says he’d like to run it back in ’09. We’d rather see him fight Evans for the title, but we also wouldn’t complain about seeing a repeat of this scrap.Read More DIGG THIS
