Check out this video of Dan Henderson walking backstage just after UFC 139

Just before composing this article, I finally agreed on a sequence of fights that I believe are the greatest in MMA history. At number five, I have to give it to Jorge Santiago vs. Kazuo Misaki at Sengoku 14 mainly because Misaki felt that he was going to die in the cage — and he readily accepted his death. Don’t worry if you missed the fight, Bloodstain Lane already broke it down for you. The fourth greatest fight would undoubtedly be Joachim Hansen vs. Eddie Alvarez at Dream 3. I would even venture to say the opening round to the bout is possibly top five greatest single rounds ever. You’ve got to respect a guy that gets flash-dropped and immediately goes for rubber guard within seconds. Coming in at the third slot is Nick Diaz vs. Takanori Gomi at Pride 33. Rarely do you see a gogoplata actually being executed in MMA and it’s even more rare when the NSAC takes away the win due to medical marijuana. The second greatest MMA fight has to be the first encounter of Big Nog vs. Fedor Emelinaenko at Pride 25. There’s no denying that it was the greatest display of ground prowess by any two heavyweights, ever. As far as the greatest MMA fight of all time, well watch this video of Dan Henderson walking backstage just after UFC 139 and find out for yourself. [Source]
