10 Worst UFC Moments, Shouldn't Have Been Mentioned

10 Worst UFC Moments, Shouldn't Have Been Mentioned
Yesterday I picked the 10 greatest moments in UFC history.  The credit on doing these two write-ups belongs to Scott Hamill, Bleacher Report writer who compiled his 100 Greatest Moments in UFC History.  After finally getting through the list he put together, I found myself shaking my head at several points while reading.  I already gave you my top ten from his list and today I give you the opposite. I would have never placed these events on the top 100 moments in UFC history.  I hope to hear back on some of your favorite’s from Scott Harris’ list on the Bleacher Report.  I am sure you will find my opinion is more defined in this list I have compiled below.  I didn’t rank them in any particular order.  The number in front indicates where you can find them on Scott Hamill’s original Bleacher Report blog in the slideshow he compiled.  So here are my 10 picks of the most unworthy UFC moments that were chosen for UFC’s 100 Greatest Moments.  Just for fun, I would love to hear what you feel does not deserve to be listed either...

Spencer Tucksen put together a great list of MMA fighters on the Bleacherreport that have never won the belt in the UFC.  I am sure it was hard to decide on only ten.  He says he was inspired by Kenny Florian’s loss at UFC 118 to Gray Maynard.  I am not sure I agree that... Read more »

James Toney Played Dana White for Fame and Dinero

      Well, I know that it is over and done with, but James Toney fighting Randy Couture is just so annoying.  I am glad that Couture got an easy pay day and all, but Toney is such a disgrace.  Some are even calling Toney’s attempt as a ‘hard try.’   Toney is so out... Read more »
