If you could change just 1 fight...

I was going back and watching some of my old Pride videos, and while I was watching Final Conflict 2005, I found myself wishing Wanderlei would have gotten the nod over Arona so I could see him fight Shogun in the finals. I think it would have been a historic fight and likely an official passing of the torch from Wand to Shogun, and would have added to an already historic card.

If you could change just one fight in the history of MMA, which would it be and why? I think some obvious would be the Fedor/Arona decision, or the GSP/Serra, so GSP could sit atop p4p without much debate.

First one that I thought of too. Had mirko won that I think he would have also beaten Randy for the HW title.

To the o.p why would changing the fedor arona fight be a common answer?

A lot of Fedor haters point to that fight and think Arona was robbed. If Fedor loses that fight, he would not have his aura of invincibility. Fedor would likely still have achieved his success, but he wouldn't have the same legendary status. The most impressive think about Fedor is he has never been beaten in a sport where everyone gets beat (and yes I am aware of the TK "loss", but no one recognizes it)

I've never seen the arona fight so I can't comment.

I'd prob also change the result of rampage chuck then have chuck retire immediately having avenged all his losses

Chuck/Rampage I so we could have seen Chuck/Silva when it mattered.
