By the end of PRIDE, Wand was already damaged goods.

I can see your point but Hendo did what no one his size or smaller could in Pride. It was a great win. War Hendo. :mrgreen:

The point was the pick the best wins, not best names mr sir.

Hendo was 46 and what 2-5 in his previous 7 fights? not to mention Bisping only wins on the bs 10-9 formula to judge fights.

Cung Li was like 42 and well past whatever his prime was

Silva way past his prime and off the juice


Rockhold was indeed a huge win for Bisping though. Belcher, Mayhem and stann as well.

A couple of others to mention:

Shogun Rua

Shogun was a huge underdog in the 2005 Pride MW GP. He blew the roof off the division by winning the entire thing with wins over

-Rampage (opening round)
-Lil Nog (quarterfinal)
-Overeem (semifinal)
-Arona (final)

He destroyed Rampage who was one of the favorites and had just beaten Shogun's brother Murilo. The fight with Lil Nog was one of the best ever with Lil Nog coming off wins over Hendo and Overeem. Shogun then obliterated Overeem as usual, and finally upset Arona in with a sensual finish to win the entire thing. Four great wins over four huge names in their prime and a legendary tournament win for the LHW GOAT.

Ending the Machida era by touching up the untouchable one was also a very big win.

Mark Coleman

Coleman beat four legends of the sport at or near the height of their careers in four very meaningful fights in MMA history:

1. Don Frye at UFC 10 - Coleman’s first appearance in the UFC was at the UFC 10 tourney which he won by destroying the unbeaten favorite Don Frye on the ground (which he would later coin ground and pound).

2. Dan Severn at UFC 12 - Coleman won the inaugural UFC HW championship by finishing Severn who was on a 9 fight win streak that included wins over Ken Shamrock, Tank Abbott, and Oleg Taktarov.

3. Igor Vovchanchyn at Pride Grand Prix 2000 Finals - Igor was on a ~40 fight unbeaten streak and the favorite to win the tournament. Coleman ended Igor’s reign and won the tourney by finishing Igor with knees.

4. Shogun Rua at Pride 31 - Shogun had just won the MW Grand Prix and was on a tear winning 8 in a row. Coleman won by TKO when Shogun broke his arm trying to stop a takedown. This was also when the famous brawl with Chute Boxe occurred in the ring afterwards.

I would also like to add that Hendo beat Wand in a Pride event held in the USA. It wasn't the usual Pride rules where he could be the Axe Murderer i.e. soccer kick, stomp and such that were staples of Wand's offense.

Still going with Jones. Shogun, Rampage, Cormier, Gustafson. Not in a row but all part of the same streak.

Conor does have a hell of a list. The Aldo win especially but also the Alvarez win too

I think people might discredit the Max win to a degree but I think that is dumb. Yeah it was right before he went on that big tear but Max was still incredibly good back then. Was he as good as the Max who fought Aldo? Probably not but that win is still a huge feather in Conors cap.

Hard to pick just 4 wins. Werdum, Sylvia, Volk Han, Hendo, Couture all are deserving of his top 4 wins list too.

Coleman has a hell of a rushmore dude. Good work. Especially with how fucking unstoppable and scary of a fighter Igor was at that time particularly. That scarf hold neck crank he hit on Severn was awesome too that was a gigantic win.
