    I've seen that Nate vs Edwards fight before, I've seen almost every Nate Marquardt fight.

    Here is one of my personal fav's.



    I was watching an old Cage Rage event when I first really got into MMA and stumbled across that beauty. Anyone else seen it?

    I couldn't find the whole fight, but here is the third round of the best fight not seen last year.



    Two former UFC punching bags absolutely slugging.

    Semmy Schilt vs Gilbert Yvel
    Rings Holland (1999)
    rules: no GNP to the head, standing 8 counts in effect, no close fists from Schilt since he is not wearing gloves....and a bunch of other weird rules i dont understand.
    its a war and the ending is great.



    edit: and i have no clue what happens at 3.15

    Yea, afraid you lose Chels, everyone in the UK should have seen that fight, nothing like a good ole fashioned slug fest! Love the end of it when Cyborg sits up and starts hammerfisting Melvin's chest Laughing

    DAMN IT!, I should have known that Cage Rage would show replays of there only good fight Evil or Very Mad

    Great post though, some awesome fights in there. Ive seen the Nate one and and the Schilt vs Yvel though.

    Well since I'm here anyway, I stumbled across this fight while I was looking for something. Jacare's first ever fight against the very exciting Patino. He has had some great fights.

    Assuming that everyone's seen the early Vale Tudo fights involving Wandy? Came across this, and I have to confess that I haven't seen it before.

    Ninja vs Sperry from pride 20 is such an under rated fight. As good as shogun vs nog if not better. Not as rare as some of these, but essential viewing if you've not seen it. Can't track down the video on iphone, but if someone could that would be great.
