Dream Fights

Fights don’t always end clean and decisions aren’t always cut and dry. Sometimes rivals have a score to settle. Fighter’s trash talk each other yet never make it into the ring. All of these are legit reason we fans demand to see a fight. But as fans we sometimes just get an idea that two fighters would make a good fight. There are many reasons why we demand fights but that is what makes us fans. Below is a list of fights we as fans want to see, along with the reason. If you don’t see yours on here, then submit it here and you’ll get your credit.

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Randy Couture[Submitted by Brain J]
It would seem increasingly impossible for this fight to happen but I think it should top any list of “fights that need to happen”. Randy has wanted if for a long time and is one of the most popular fighters of all time. He isn’t getting any younger so time is ticking on this one and at this point I wouldn’t care where this fight happens, in the UFC or a Russian back alley.

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett[Submitted by Chokewho]
This should have happened at Affliction but it didn’t. It would have been #1 v #2 in the world. Barnett messed it up by failing a drugs test.

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brock Lesnar -[Submitted by JdashRIDE]
Fedor is the #1 HW in the world and Brock Lesnar is considered by many as the guy to beat him. This would definitely be the biggest fight in MMA history.

Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami - [Submitted by Killjoy_]
The spider hasn’t lost in 4 years and that was to Yushin Okami. The defeat was a controversial one as Silva was disqualified for an illegal kick. Once Both Silva and Okami reached the UFC the talk started about a rematch. Everytime the fight looks like it will happen something goes wrong. Before Silva has another super fight this fight needs to happen.

Anderson Silva vs. Lyoto Machida[Submitted by JdashRIDE]
With these two Pound 4 Pound top 10 fighters being friends, this match will most likely NEVER happen. But too be honest, it would probably be a snooze fest if it did happen because both are counter strikers and there wouldn’t be a lot of action going on. But I picked it for the small reason that it would let us know who should be higher on the pound 4 pound rankings.

Anderson Silva vs. Anthony Johnson - [Submitted by P.J. Harrison]
Johnson will at some point be a 185lbs fighter. If Silva is still fighting then these two would put on a great war.

Michael Bisping vs. Matt Hamill 2- [Submitted by Brain J]
Most agree that Matt Hamill won the first meeting at UFC 75.  One thing most remember about that fight is Hamill stalking Bisping and Bisping literally running away. The fight was in England so I’m sure the judges were swayed in favor of the hometown hero. Too bad they are different weight classes now.

Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans 2[Submitted by Killjoy_]
Now that Tito Ortiz is back in the UFC I’d really like to see these two fight again. Their first fight ended in a draw because Ortiz was deducted a point for holding the cage. Without that point taken away Ortiz would have won the fight and several things might have been different.

Randy Couture vs. Dan Henderson[Submitted by P.J. Harrison]
Two legends going at it, Nothing more need be said. They better do it soon at 205lbs.

Jake Shields vs. Jon Fitch -[Submitted by Chokewho]
Two good wrestlers and it would gage how good Shields really is.

Eddie Alvarez & Joachim Hansen vs. UFC -[Submitted by Chokewho]
Both fighter’s should go to the UFC if they really wants to test their skills

Kimbo Slice vs. Sean Gannon[Submitted by JdashRIDE]
Sean Gannon is the Boston police officer who beat Kimbo in a bare knuckle fist fight which can be seen on YouTube. Dana White saw that and signed Gannon to fight a virtual no name fighter (Brandon Lee Hinkle) in the UFC. Gannon got beat in the 1st round by TKO and was quickly released by the UFC. Kimbo has been stating that he wants to fight Gannon under MMA rules to prove himself against the dude that once beat him but Gannon’s asking price was way too high. The UFC has money and anything with Kimbo’s face on it will sell PPV’s.

Urijah Faber vs Tyson Griffin 2 - [Submitted by chingon3]
If you watch that YouTube vid it happens so quick with an awesome KO. This rematch would be interesting since they both have established winning careers. Urijah could avenge a loss.

Chuck Liddell vs Forrest Griffin – [Submitted by Daniel]
Both are stand up fighters would be a good brawl!

Gilbert Melendez vs Shinya Aoki[Submitted by apostlemma]
Coker wants it, Tanigawa needs to step up and put his boy on the line. WAR GILBERT!!!
• This fight happened at Strikeforce: Nashville with Melendez winning by U.D.

Shogun Rua vs Anderson Silva - [Submitted by Nathan Crowe]
There’s a good chance this fight will happen and it would be a fight that would bring out the best in silva and wed see what he’s really made of.

Georges St. Pierre vs Anderson Silva[Submitted by Nathan Crowe]
In my opinion this fight would crown the real p4p champ and there’s no reason it shouldn’t happen

Rampage vs King MO Lawal - [Submitted by MMAQuick]
King Mo is a now the Strikeforce champ but has a keen disgust towards the former UFC light heavyweight champ Ramapge Jackson.

Frank Shamrock vs. Royce Gracie[Submitted by Colin Timberlake]
If Royce can come back to fight Hughes, then both can come back to fight each other?

Mark Coleman vs. Mark Kerr[Submitted by Colin Timberlake]
There’s still time to make this one happen just for the hell of it…

Brock Lesnar vs Bobby Lashley – [Submitted by Michael Osborn]
Both are huge guys with impressive collegiate wrestling backgrounds. Lashley needs more experience, but this one should happen in the next few years.
