There. $20 for 23 hours worth of the biggest/most important fights in UFC history. Granted some are debatable, but that'll get you up to speed on the sport and some of the bigger names in history.

Other than that though, it depends on what you value in a fighter. Do you just wanna cheer for the best? Cheer for the underdogs? Cheer for the classy/professional guys? The goofy/weird guys? Once you figure out what kinda fighter you like, you'll find your favorites a lot easier.

The Pettis Bro's are great young Fighters....( to watch )

But IMO one of the greatest Fights ever and a good Fight that reps MMA's overall style is Gomi vs Diaz....

The whole PRIDE 33 is one of the greatest MMA cards of alltime....must watch for all fans

I had the exact same reaction for that fight that I did for this one. Surreal moment that I'll talk about the next 24 hour with no sleep.

If you want to see why MMA is so amazing just watch...

Korean Zomie vs Poirier
Lauzon vs Varner
Jones vs anyone
Benson vs Diaz


Usually the lightweight and featherweight divisions offer the best mix of excitement, they don't gas yet still deliver KO power, quickness, skill and pure entertainment.

Nah I order maybe 2 PPV's per year, 3 tops

But now that UFC has their big deal with Fox, you actually get a lot of free cards that are better than the PPV ones. Especially with the debut of Fox Sports 1 next month.

Oh okay that's cool then. I hope my provider gets Fox 1 then. The only reason I like Silva right now is because of I was watching his fight against Sonnen awhile ago, and thought that move he pulled was cool

That, and also do you have Fuel TV? They show old UFC events, UFC Unleashed which shows a bunch of great fights, and Best of Pride which shows a bunch of great fights from Pride.
