The Fedor versus Jeff Monson I think is the most significant fight in MMA history, not because of the MMA fight or significant for the sport of MMA but because of the boos and cat calls that Putin (or whoever it was directed to) received after the fight. That section along is being called by some political commentators and activists as "an end of an era" and totally out of the norm. The fight was also shown live on prime time on one of the major broadcasters.

All MMA fights to date has been of local importance, this fight leapt out of the sporting arena into the political antenna and plunked itself as a regionally significant event. ALL newsagencies around the world seems to have covered what happened.
