We all know there are those dream match ups that we would really like to see in MMA. There are many obstacles as to why these fights don't get made. One can be to injury, another can be because some fighters don't get signed and other are because they two fighters fight for different organizations. The one that I would want to see the most would be Randy Couture vs Fedor Emelianko but close ones would be Georges St.Pierre vs Anderson Silva or even Matt Serra vs Matt Hughes. Which MMA fight would you most like to see and why?

Ortiz vs Rampage will probably never happen. They're pretty good friends.

I'd like to see

Sakuraba vs Rickson Gracie - Watch the Gracie Killer finish what he started.
Filho vs A. Silva - Wont happen because of the friend thing
Igor V. Vs. Vanderlei Silva - Igor is retired now, but this match would've been epic in their primes..
Uriah Faber vs. BJ Penn
Fedor vs Randy Couture - The fight we've all been waiting for.
Randy Couture vs. Rampage @ LHW.
More to come...

There are many but my list is also

Rich Franklin vs Dan Henderson
Liddell vs Rua (should happen after Liddell heals up)
Jackson vs Kimbo (I know I would pick Jackson but it would be big hype)
Nog vs Couture
Griffin vs Henderson at LHW
Anderson vs Le a bit overated IMO but would still be interesting
Liddell vs Kimbo (two big stand up punchers)

Saku would beat Rickson. Rickson, and don't think I'm a hater, I even had a snake name Rickson, but truth is Renzo is the best Fighting Gracie, and Saku made him look bad. In there Primes, I pick Saku by Decision, unless it's no time limits like the Royce fight, then I see the fight going like 4 hours till someone gives up...

no man not calling u a hater. I can see why your saying what you saying lol. I download Kazushi Sakuraba's Complete MMA career torrent. I've seen all his fights this guy is very very good. i cant even believe some of the stuff he does in the ring. the sliding kick to the grounded opponent... double chop ...2 much to list.

Renzo Gracie the best fighting gracie how can you say that? I know hes great. he dident even tap to Saku with that Kimura. but i want to know why you think he is the best Gracie fighter?

do you know if hes still on the DREAM.2 card. i heard he was on then off?

Renzo is the best MMA guy out of the bunch, he doesn't have the best GJJ but he is more developed in the other aspects of the game than the rest of them. I cant remember who said it, but theres a great quote that goes like this. "There is a difference between doing Jiu Jitsu, and doing Jiu Jitsu while getting punched in the face." Rickson may be the best at GJJ, but I have never seen him fight anyone to make me think he's now or ever was a real contender to a MMAer....

I agree, nice post. Saku-Rickson is one I'd love to see, even at their age.

This one wouldn't be too bad. Liddell is a strong puncher but he swings wildly sometimes. Griffin is a good puncher too but he has soft scar tissue would mean more cuts
