Dan Henderson vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua 1 was an epic five-round war between two legends of the sport! There were lots of momentum swings in this one. Both men scrambled into dominant positions and rocked the other man, both men had to show off toughness and fight back, and both men had to dig deep keep going for 25 hellacious minutes. There is no question that these twomen left it all in the Octagon that night.
Mark Hunt vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva 1 took place at UFC Brisbane on December 6, 2013 and ended in one of the greatest draws of all time. Both men scored knockdowns, both did big damage, both bled, and both men left everything in the Octagon that night. This was a grueling war with tons of momentum swings, haymakers, and a healthy dose of plasma. This was truly special.
