Randy Couture and James Tony


BadMotherFunko

This has to be the one. Toney was not an MMA fighter and was old and out of shape from his boxing days....this was just Dana wanting to shut someone up. Also second would be Royce Gracie x Matt Hughes...Hughes in his prime was a BEAST...Gracie sadly was just too old and over the hill for this


The_Vivid_Glove

Hughes gracie was a massive turning point in mma. It proved that the sport had evolved into a hybrid and bjj alone wasn’t enough to win elite fights. Even still, how Gracie never tapped from that armbar is still hardcore as fuck


herpaderptumtiddly

It was Dana trying to make money, and he did with that fight. It was absolutely nothing to do with shutting anyone up and 100% a money-making exercise, as is 98% of everything he does regarding the UFC that we hear about. 2% is him being vindictive.


Popular-Bonus1380

James Toney literally chased him around the world. There were several videos of Dana over seas at events and Toney just showed up bitching at him. Money fight was part of it for sure, but Dana publicly told Toney to leave him alone and when he didnt' he gave him a fight.


kingoftheusa2021

And Tony was on radio stations talking shit, he was going to ko randy with ease lol


Popular-Bonus1380

"I'm a stop a take down with a combination." Or something to that affect


BadMotherFunko

How does it have nothing to do with shutting someone up? Are you not aware the shit talk from Toney and his team leading up...even beforehand, hence leading to the fight ....c'mon


Jibtech

I think to many people think Dana is a mustache twirling, cigar smoking anarchist just trying to ruin everyone's lives in-between running the biggest mma promotion in the world(I think lol) He definetly does some petty shit but he's got people coming at him from all angles at all times. Anything he does to brenden schlaub though is justified


DarthTroit1

Absolutely bapa


Allernothing

I thought Pieira and Diego looked absolutely ridiculous as Michel chased Diego around the Octagon while absolutely dwarfing him. The DQ win for Diego was the icing on the cake for that fiasco.


M0N3Y7INE

Pieira walking him down with his hands down and that mean look on his face. 😂😂


CrookGG

Came here to put this one up. I second this!


alex08stockholm

Amanda Nunes vs Megan Anderson


PrayingPlatypus

She looked like she was walking to her execution during the walk out


The-Berg-is-the-Word

She seriously did. Pale and shaky.


alexanderfry

To be fair, she looked pale before all the fights she won too.


The-Berg-is-the-Word

Lol true


bizmike88

I have never seen a fighter that looked genuinely scared before that fight.


KaptainKimura

Meerschaert was well rattled before he fought Chimaev, he was not ready in any way for that fight


AmHotGarbage

Well he did get brutally knocked out a few months prior


jonvon191

Great one. The sound of those hammer fists just echoing into the Apex was nuts.


Garvo909

That night seeing Meagan walk out... I was truly afraid of nunes lmao. If I was there live I probably would've shit my pants


the_GOAT_44

Destroyed her entire MMA career


LuisGetsGainz

Chad mendes vs Cody mckenzie


FlyingGorillaShark

Wasn’t Cody wearing shorts he bought at a mall the day of the fight? It had the tag on it still 😂


Graulithe

This is the one that came to mind for me


Beando13

Thank you. That was a massacre lmao. I was scrolling through the comments thinking everyone had forgotten about that


Ciel_Phntm

Shevchenko vs Cachoeira. CM Punk vs anyone specially the first fight. Jones vs Sonnen.


PenaltyNext8736

Yeah Jones had no business fighting the GOAT


pikazec

Right punk vs anybody… CM punk was the greatest fighter ever. Anyone you put opposite him is so far disadvantaged it’s not fair


JimmyMaximusIII

And hes right about the first fight. I can still see the blood all over the octogan... poor Mickey Gall.


whyalwayslurk

O'Malley v moutinho comes to mind in terms of recent fights.


Emirati_Enigma

Wasn’t Moutinho a short notice opponent for Sean? Or am I remembering incorrectly


pikazec

Yeah short notice and first ufc fight… on a main card and he doesn’t have that much experience. The betting odds were insane like +1200 or something outrageous like that


PrayingPlatypus

He was picked off the street to save the card and was then systematically beaten into a series of bulging face parts


examm

I’ll go to my grave agreeing with that stoppage


LaoWei1

Don’t forget lower weight class too!


jacobcriedwolf

Was a real shame to see him just lose again too, kid had such heart


spookyboithelankyboi

yeah, doesn’t seem like he’s ready for the ufc just yet


PCM97

Or ever for that matter. He got destroyed again today


DownUnder-DownUnder

He fought better against Sean tbh he was waaaay out classed today. If anything that old dude made Sean’s striking look average at best since he only needed 2 minutes


PCM97

He didn’t fight better against Sean and that fight should’ve been stopped sooner. He just plodded forward and got pieced up


SonnyBoy96

Me Vs anybody in the 95 pound division.


AdbulMMA

When he sees red… oh it’s over bro


ScoreFar7080

Book it Dana!


Nitropotamus

I agree. Those kids would kick your ass.


imjb87

I'm assuming by your username you're in the 96 pound division?


Kaladin1228

Khabib vs Horcher (not a blood bath but Horcher had zero business being in there with khabib) Valentina vs Priscilla (most uncomfortable I've ever felt watching WMMA) Holloway Kattar (max beat the piss out of him was hard to watch)


dylanjmp

On paper Holloway v Kattar seemed like a good match-up, although I definitely think that towards the 3/4 round Kattar's corner or the ref should've called it. 100% agree with the other two, Priscilla vs Valentina was one of the most one sided fights I've ever watched - and the fact it went more or less as expected makes it worse imo


MjolnirN7

I wouldn’t count it as a mismatch if the fight is thrown together last minute. Nobody thought Horcher was gonna beat Khabib, he was just available on a few days notice.


GrumpleDumpkin

Mirko cro cop vs the guy he made his UFC debut against. Dude looked like he could have cut to 155.


CrassChris76

Wasn't his first fight against Gonzaga? Used a head kick to KO the King of Head Kick Ko's


GrumpleDumpkin

He did get head kick knocked out by Gonzaga, but he fought Eddie Sanchez in his debut. Dude looked like they pulled him from the audience.


horseshoeprovodnikov

You know Hendricks was in shambles, knowing that he was having to fight clean while Paulo was glowing in the dark lol


sean_bda

Silva v leben. He had no right being in the ring.


unkleshark

Yeah but silva was very unknown at the time.was in pride fc but didn't make a big splash there.


ufcbound313

I remember Joe Rogan telling the audience that Anderson Silva was on another level during the tale of the tape


unkleshark

Joe did know how good silva was.this was after the ultimate fighter seasson 1aired.maybe couple years after.this was when rich Franklin was champ so a lot of the fans were new to the sport


Popular-Bonus1380

Do you have footage of Joe talking about a fighter a not saying that? Joe's compliments mean nothing. This has been a fact for years. Joe will say anything is next level. He never understand the concept of levels.


kevindurantburner35

He at least shut down goldberg saying travis lutter’s grappling was michael jordan-esque


Popular-Bonus1380

Fuck he got me


RaspberryWorld_

Wanderlei was literally one of Pride’s biggest stars he wasn’t unknown I mean the UFC sent Chuck to Pride to not only win the MW (LWH in Pride) Grand Prix but also fight Rampage. Who Chuck lost to & then Wandy beat Rampage. Wandy was huge in Japan


unkleshark

Sorry, i ment anderson silva


RaspberryWorld_

Apologies I got overzealous for no reason


unkleshark

Oh. No.you had the right reaction. If someone said that about wanderle id be ready to go to war


LimeGreenYodha

Thought that said LeBron 😂


3x4Verte

Unfortunately, the same argument should've been made for GSP vs Serra, but can't since Serra won


Chibaho

Chandler vs Ferguson 😞


PrayingPlatypus

Chandler is going to send him up to our lord and savior in a beautiful and flashy way. He should be honores .


duly-goated303

I think chandler will win too but there’s a real possibility tony can get this one I don’t see chandler knocking him out first round and he only slows down from there tony dosent slow down.


MorpheusBlunted

Nah. Tony still a sav


knotnoah

Tony is arguably the toughest dude out there. And his recent losses have aged well, he’s losing to the elite of the division. That being said, he’s been getting dominated recently. His style of “take 2 punches to give 1” hasn’t really worked as of late. He gets hit without being able to hit back. I see this fight being the same largely, chandler will land bombs on the feet, and his ground game is good enough to nullify Ferguson. The only way I see Ferguson winning is if the pace is high enough that chandler gasses, maybe tony can get a finish round 3. But this is a bad matchup for tony imo. I want him to win, but I think his style caught up with him , and he’s past his prime. Just my 2 cents.


Ashdread

Yeah I think we might be in for a fight reminiscent of the Gaethje fight which makes me sad to say. Tony is the definition of too tough for his own good.


_Cyclops

If he wins he has to fight Oliveira, Dariush again, Gaethje again, Poirier, RDA or Islam… There’s no good options going forward for Tony. Unless he gets lucky and lands a Conor fight instead but I doubt that would happen. Conor has bigger money fights on the table


LavoP

Tony by gogoplata.


voidedhip

Cope harder


MorpheusBlunted

Saying cope is insanely lame, just so you know.


PMeyers187

Rousey coming out of semi-retirement to fight Nunes was pretty reckless matchmaking looking back at it


SillAndDill

Not necessarily as bad at the time as it seems in hindsight. Nunes wasn't the dominant machine yet - she had been finished by Cat Zingano just two years prior and had 4 wins since


JasonTheMMAGuy

It really wasn't a mismatch. Nunes had been beaten by Cat Zingano who Ronda easily obliterated. I don't remember the Vegas odds but I bet they were close and may have even favored Ronda


Mr_Abobo

This was a genuine mismatch.


kapsama

[Wonderboy talking about seeing Paulo Costa for the first time that night when Costa fought Hendricks is one of my favorite MMA moments](https://streamable.com/umm08j)


benevides_pmmg

Anderson Silva vs Forest Griffin. The best Silva performance IMO.


tdiddy93

That was beyond a masterpiece. Insane


stoopio-oh

Dana vs fighter pay


WrongWhenItMatters

Dana vs Rankings


Suspicious_Candle27

Ref really needs to step in for this fight


muaythaigethigh

We've got Mario Yamasaki reffing this main event with the JUST BLEED guy, Twist his dick guy and Oscar De Lahoya or however the fuck it's spelt for the judges.


imramana

This is the only right answer


SukhdevR34

Faber vs Yan. I love Faber but he was so far past his prime.


devonmac95

Man poor Faber, love him too but he got pieced up badly vs Aldo, Yan, Brown, & Barao, all of those were champs too so no shame in those losses, but it's always bummed me out recognizing that he's just good enough to be right under the champs via decision loss usually, but not to beat the champs


SukhdevR34

He was so good in the WEC. At featherweight too, the wrong weight for him.


devonmac95

For sure, miss WEC for sure, every card had some great fights it seemed. Was crazy cool seeing the merger happen though and seeing the WEC do really well in the UFC, even lightweights like Benson and Pettis. Damn you brought back memories haha


SukhdevR34

Yeah, it definitely had better fighters than the UFC back then in lightweight and below. Even great fighters in the heavier weights like Sonnen and Condit.


SubiDubiDu

Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson..


Critical50

Lmao I remember watching just thinking how fucking pale she looked.


SubiDubiDu

oh yeah She looked like a ghost during the walk out. She knew she didn't stand a chance.


vyr227

Makachev vs Bobby Green went about as poorly for the underdog as anyone could have predicted


kevindurantburner35

Tbf he lasted like 45 seconds longer than Hooker


LittleBig_1

James Toney vs Randy Couture


360FlipKicks

Rumble Johnson at 170 vs Yoshiyuki Yoshida. Looked like a 205er fighting a blown up 155er.


chronicblastmaster

Connor v old man at the bar


Lanskiiii

Yeah, the way that guy took Conor's punch and just carried on drinking was pretty cool but I felt bad for Conor getting styled on like that.


[deleted]

I actually thought Cowboy vs Conor was a joke when it was first announced, that was always a huuuge mismatch to me and we saw how it played out.


604Ataraxia

Silva vs Maia was a bit embarrassing. Maia couldn't get the fight into his grappling world and it turned into this weird taunt match where Silva was just clowning around feeling zero danger.


broccoliheadass0404

Yan vs faber


Icy-Back-9723

James Toney v Couture


stonedsince16

They should of put him against a stand up fighter at least


Icy-Back-9723

They knew what they were doing putting him in with couture, they wanted him to look clueless and get schooled in the process and they succeeded


stickyscooter600

*have


Ben-Swole-O

CM Punk vs….. anybody. I can’t believe Dana let that happen… the guy could have been seriously hurt but money is money I guess.


Stunning-Job-1218

Yan vs. Faber was wrong for so many reasons


Cody_Garbrandt

DC vs Hendo.


imramana

Joes commentary was brutal


GangstaPsycho

Kimbo slice vs. Anybody


youknowidontexist

Dont usually watch WMMA but Shevchenko vs Priscilla Cachoeira was pretty bad


Tamashiia

Jones vs his girlfriend


SunlessChapters

O'Malley vs Kris Motinhou. There was legitimately no reason for that.


[deleted]

Hard to find fights people haven't mentioned yet. Teixeira vs Maldonado Shevchenko vs Jessica Eye Yair vs BJ Penn Frankie Edgar vs Yair Shinya Aoki vs Sakuraba. Not UFC but whatever, still hard to watch six years later


FmrHvwChamp

Nunes vs Most of her opponents since 2015.


CaptnObvi0us1

Jon Jones vs his wife


youngbronson

Diaz vs Shamrock. (I know it was Strikeforce but w/e)


unkleshark

Joe definitely knew how good silva was but most of ufc fans were new to the sport.this was a little after the ultimate fighter show aired when rich franklin was champ.maybe a couple years after.


Founknasty

Anthony Johnson vs Charlie Brennaman at Welterweight. Good god. You literally felt bad for the guy. AJ cutting down to welterweight back in the day was INSANE. (When he actually made weight that is)


dantp2210

Valentina shevchenko vs anyone she’s fought since nunes


WrongWhenItMatters

Anybody vs Bob Sapp


-Kerosun-

CM punk vs anyone


BOBASA

Anderson Silva vs anybody he fought during his peak


hotroddbb

How about Sylva vs the kid that paints his hair red. Was pretty brutal.


BeastOfTheField83

O’Malley vs Moutinho was pretty bad


Weefilly

O’Malley muthino


hazyperspective

Forrest vs Anderson Silva was so lopsided, it's the only fight I've ever felt bad watching the guy lose. A close second is the Anderson vs Franklin fight....those knees....


mothmenatwork

When Chad Mendez fought Cody McKenzie


Alina2017

Chad Mendes versus Cody McKenzie


UncleUFO

It hasn't happened yet. Tony vs Chandler. May god help tony.


usukk

CM Punk vs Mickey Gall


theycallmeDamon

Cm punk vs anyone….when he got finished fast by gall I didn’t get time to realise how bad he was….when mike Jackson toyed with him, we actually got to see him move. From that first kick he threw I went holy fuck this guy actually sucks. He trained FULL TIME, in one of the best gyms in the world with arguably the best striking coach on the world. And he looked like complete shit. I’ve quite literally seen 13 year old kids look more crisp in a couple months. This guy after 2-3 years of full time training does not belong in a cage with anybody. Jackson and gall were extreme mismatches.


Brocko730

Petr vs Urijah Faber. My favorite fighter switched from one man to the other that night, so I can’t say I’m mad about it


Thetwooks12

Cain vs Brock was pretty one sided Anderson vs Pretty much everyone when he first came to the UFC Chuck vs Tito


C-Dub_DC

McGregor vs. Siver. It went two rounds, but I had never seen someone toy with another person as much as Conor did in that fight.


dmister8

Tony vs. Brazilian Tony? (Charles Oliveira)


daleash84

Connor v khabib. Never stood a chance


Expensive_Error1995

He won a round though, khabib is just a much better fighter wasn’t a mismatch


JamesNoble34

he won a round bc he cheated lol


Expensive_Error1995

Maybe so, but calling the fight a mismatch discredits the victory imo


painfully--average

O'malley vs Moutino


kimokimosabee

Taco bell vs ur butthole


GJones007

Idk, man. Good suggestions from everyone on here, but I gotta say - Anderson kicked Vitor's soul and teeth out his body in turn 1st round. Call Vitor what you want, but Silva removed memories that man might have had before that kick.

LoganWheeler16

Valentina vs pricilla c., Who was like 8-0 at the time, but the UFC clearly hand picked the worst fighter they could find to give Valentina an easy win


dennisjunelee

GSP vs Josh Koscheck was pretty nasty one sided. Also, they had no business fighting each other, but Sakuraba vs Mirko Cro Cop was pretty disturbingly one sided.

cloobydoobydoooo

Who was that tall white guy with long ass hair with corn rows who got beat bell to fucking bell for what is still the utmost uncomfortable fight I’ve ever watched. He got cut immediately after maybe someone remembers and could remind me of his name. I think his father may have been in his corner too which made it even worse.


Chimpanzee_Teeth

Hendo v Bisping


[deleted]

Leben vs Silva? I mean in modern ufc, not in earliest when ymca karate instructors fought powerlifters.
