Most epic HW MMA fight ever?

I posted this because my friend said that Lesnar vs Carwin is the most epic HW fight ever, and I proceeded to laugh and call him an idiot because that's just a ridiculous claim in my opinion. It is not how the fight turned out it is about the lead up to the fight and how much people looked forward to it, and the talent and reputation of both fighters. Also, I don't know how to make polls, if someone wants to edit this and do so they can.

My vote is Fedor vs Cro Cop at PRIDE Conflict 2005.

I know this thread is probably kind of stupid, but I just wanted some opinions on this topic.

Sylvia-Monson UFC 65.

A matchup for the ages no doubt, I remember we were on the edge of our seats for 5 rounds of HW throwdown!

I think in all honesty, Lesnar Carwin is a pretty epic HW match up. Not the greatest of all time, but I'm stoked as all hell.

I remember a few years back when there was an article speculating about who could beat Fedor and Brock and Antonio Silva were both on the list and you were ALL like hahahaha, including you HISTORY, now one of Brock's biggest fans.

I didn't dismiss either of those guys then. Look at where Brock is now, and Antonio Silva isn't doing badly either.

Brock and Carwin are both top 5 in the world right now, and in terms of raw power, they are possibly number 1 and 2. I'm excited.

My favourite HW match to date was Randy and Big Nog... but that fight looked more like 2 big LHWs going at it.

I can't think of one HW fight that I ever watched that was better than that fight between Couture and Nog. That one was epic.

I'm stoked to see this fight between Lesnar and Carwin, but I just think it's going to be a quick thrill of a few minutes before one of them is laid out on the canvas. That's the only thing that sucks about MMA at times is that you get so excited for a certain fight or match up for months and it all ends within a few minutes in many cases.

You should have paid to see Tyson KO fuckers in 20 seconds back in the day, I'll never forget that growing up.

My dad was like "I'll never pay for this shit again"

At least we get undercards that normally are outstanding in MMA, you're almost guaranteed a great KO and fight every PPV.
