ESPN Names Top 5 Fights Of The Half-year

5. Hunt vs. Struve

Co-main eventing UFC on Fuel TV 8 were heavyweights Mark “The Super Samoan” Hunt and Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve. They battled it out for nearly three rounds until Hunt’s hands got the job done late in the fight.

4. Zingano vs. Tate

What was the second ever women’s fight in the UFC to decide who would coach on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) opposite Ronda Rousey, Miesha “Cupcake” Tate and Alpha “Cat” Zingano tested their toughness at the TUF Finale in Las Vegas, as they went go two hard rounds before Zingano landed twenty-six unanswered strikes in round three, forcing the referee to halt the contest.

3. Silva vs. Stann

When Wanderlei Silva returned to the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, many fans weren’t sure what to expect from the aging PRIDE veteran. Silva would bring back the epic kind of performance that fight fans will always remember him for, he and Brian Stann let it all out, and “The axe murderer” proved he can still put on a jaw-dropping display of mixed martial arts for you fight fans out there.

2. Hendricks vs. Condit

What was supposed to be a rematch between Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald at UFC 158: St. Pierre vs. Diaz, before MacDonald pulled out of the fight with an injury. Johny Hendricks stepped up immediately to face Condit, and not many fight fans were upset about the sudden switch of opponents. The two matched up perfect, stylistically, so it made for an all-out war.

1. Grice vs. Bermudez

In what was probably the most competitive feature on the 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche fight card, Dennis Bermudez and Matt Grice went to war on the FX prelims and pleased the crowd with nonstop punches being thrown from bell-to-bell.
