1) Mirko Cro Cop vs. Wanderlei Silva
Their first fight in 2002 was a draw. Their second fight in 2006 was downright epic.
As two of the most flashy knockout gurus of their era, seeing Silva and Cro Cop tie it up for a reboot was simply spectacular. What made things even better is the fact that fight fans got the finish they were looking for, as the Croatian landed his patented head kick to stop Silva in Round 1.
It’s one of Cro Cop’s greatest performances of his lengthy career and a finish that truly stood out during a time when PRIDE legends were all in their prime.
