  1. If you dont have UFC Fight Pass– I believe that they offer a 7-day free trial. Also, a lot of these fights (though poorer quality) are available for free on MMA-Core.

  2. Great job, Nick. Especially appreciate all the fight links. It doesn’t seem to be limited by number, so maybe you can squeeze Holm vs. Tate in. The significance of the victory and the last minute turn-around and the refusal to tap all contributed to it being special.

    1. Thanks, JR! I just added in Holm/Tate, Tate/McMann and Grasso/Mizuki! I hope to continuously update the page as we get more must-watch fights so that it’s available to everyone to share/like/use!

      1. You da man, Slick Nick ! The only 2 I think maybe are missing , maybe 3, maybe 4, ha ha , are Joanna vs Karolina (awesome 5-round war – even though Karolina was outclassed at times, she stunned the champ a couple times late in the fight – fight had a lot of drama), Joanna vs Letourneau (Letourneau was a warrior in defeat ! ) , Shevchenko-Eye, and Andrade – Karolina (the latter two for the sheer brutality of the KOs) . I’m even tempted to say Joanna – Penne and Joanna – Esparza because until then we had never seen anyone in WMMA brutalize their opponent with boxing technique at the strawweight division before !

        1. For sure!! Going to add those in now– I totally meant to add in Joanna v Letourneau as that was one of my favorite fights. Ill have to put my bias aside and put in Andrade vs KK– I hated seeing that fight as I have a real soft spot for KK :'(

          1. Oh i saw Andrade-KK in the bar and was utterly fascinated when the pretty KK was hammered into the ground by the Piledriver. KK had her block rocked and she looked like a dove fallen from the sky after hitting a skyscraper window, lol. here is a bad link, fuzzy an zoomed in .

  3. Joanna J vs Jessica Penne June 2015
    —“Middle WMMA period” American vs International level competition—
    THe fights which intrigue me just aren’t only the big barn burners between high skill opponents. sometimes it’s a blowout between fighters who are on different planes of existence. For instance, i see a demographic group of female fighters who got in the UFC on TUF 18, the magic season when Rousey and Tate coached. Some of these girls were from the Gina Carano era , and are vital to have “held the line” in the low period as WMMA still existed, but not on any big platforms. So they were veterans even at the period, but the UFC hadn’t gone fully international yet.
    In my mind i refer to these girls as being from a ~2010 “Middle period” of MMA: mostly Americans, classic names such as Modaferri, Penne, Esparza, Torres, Evans Smith, Herrig, Calderwood, Ellis, Eye Aguilar, Fruasto, Sexton. They were good in their time when the gene pool was shallower, though some are still fighting at a high level, such as the ageless MOdaferri
    However, thanks to them for keeping it alive and relevant, to bridge the gap from Carano’s career which ended too soon, to the Ronda era.

    Jessica Penne is the fan favorite, a enigmatic hotty who occasionally drops some super sexy stuff. Joanna is the phenom from Poland, and this fight from UFC FN 69 in june 2015 was during her ascent to the top, leaving bodies everywhere. Before this she had destroyed Carla Esparza, who ended the fight falling limp into the arms of the referee. And Penne was good in the middle years of MMA, but when UFC went truly global in its search for talent,
    Jessica p was 12-2, but Americans like her found many more dangerous sharks swimming in the waters. either younger, or from different cultures and much more experience such as JJ’s 111+ muy thai and KB fights.

    We all know how this fight went: Joanna had a heavy bag session with the utterly overmatched Penne, who looked like she was in a car accident. It shows that the fight career which JJ had, an amazing career in MT which added more fight experience than any mere training can do, showed. Jessica’s 14 fights, and maybe 8 ammy fights, do not compare. Also, Jessica is a hot California girl who happened to get into MMA . Joanna OTH, her body is genetically designed for fighting – low fat, heavy horsey legs which kick super fast and heavy, and lean upper body with fast twitch muscles to flick out those cracking jabs. Penne i think needed nose surgery after this, and her career slowed down big time

  4. Amanda Nunes vs Miesha Tate
    July 2016
    Gritty wrestler versus genetically perfect MMA body type

    Love Miesha tate. Got to meet her twice, in NJ and in Vegas, cool chick so down to earth and gracious to fans. She did well in MMA before ronda, and after ronda left. She has a soft figure, i’ve never seen her really jacked. SHe just had tons of heart, from being on the boys wrestling team IIRC in school, to entering womens MMA in the early days.
    Improbably, she beat Holly Holm in a last second hail mary takedown, but she always didn’t do so well against well rounded strikers. Amanda nunes is the elite of the elite, a iron will, the perfect body for MMA (extremely long arms and legs, ultra fast speed) , and an amazing capacity for improvement. She lost to SArah Delelio, and to Alexis davis who has never impressed me.

    So Miesha Tate, soft and slow, looked like she had been tossed off a building after 3 minutes with the lean mean Nunes. Big breast implants made miesha fun to look at, but to be honest, hampered her as a fighter because, i’m not kidding, the boobs bang around and give the opponent a very clear indication of movement and momentum. Amanda nunes has not gotten them, but Miesha, JOanna, and Claudia all did , and they aren’t winning lately…
    I was watching the fight with two friends, one of whom was a training partner of Tate. She was screaming at me and the other friend, and the screen , as her friend was beat to a bloody mess.

    1. Thats awesome that you got to meet her! Miesha is one of my all time favorites and one of the reasons I am so into the sport today!

      1. Meisha is so gracious, she helped my friend get a bit part in the ridiculous Fight Valley movie that Miesha starred in with Holly and Cyborg. I met her briefly at the wrap party, then a few years later in Vegas when my fighter friend invited me out there, and i had a fan boi’s waking dream of 3 days hanging out and watching the WMMA world from a insider’s view. Man it was fun. i had about four full minutes of talking w Miesha and Bryan Callaway her then boyfriend…ultra nice people.
        Miesha didn’t stay at the top in MMA and retired at just the right time, and with grace, remember how dignified she was when she gave props to Rocky and laid down her gloves. her people skills means that she can do a lot more in MMA, now she is a big cheese in OneFC. Hooray for her

  5. Miriam Nakamoto vs Lauren Murphy
    Dec 2013
    Muy Thai crossover vs former drug addict who overcame to be a ranked fighter

    wow this was the first year i began watching WMMA.
    back in 2013, invicta was finding its footing, putting on good shows with memorable girls. Some of you may remember that the streaming was very uneven, sometimes it would lag, or not even come in and Shannon would refund everyone their money lol. A lot had happened behind the scenes, as i’m told, and Invicta was bout to fold due to internal problems. Thankfully it did not!
    So, Miriam was a recent crossover, having fought a long MT career, lots of wins, but little money, so she came to Invicta. Did real well out the gate, destroying Eliz philips, mila dudavich, and jessamyn duke.
    Lauren Murphy made bad decisions early in life but had a turnaround and put her considerable energy into MMA, handing out beatdowns in Alaska before Invicta called.
    THis fight went on for 4 rounds, Lauren had the strap that Miriam was going for. I actually had Nak winning, as she had more technique than the instinctive low game of Murph.
    in the 3rd, miriam felt her knee go out, but being Miriam Nakamoto, decided to fight on. Her knee blew out, and as i watched the screen in amazement, one of the most touching moments in MMA occured – Lauren Murphy ran towards the fallen opponent, and with a concerned look on her face placed her hands on Miriams shoulders in a gesture of help . There was no hate, just sportsmanship.
    She was shooed away by the ref, but that scene stuck with me forever.
    Miriam has not fought since. She was aiming for a comeback to mma at the age of 42. Just last year, Joe rogan paid for stem cell therapy for Miriam. but it has not worked , according to her social media. Too bad, she is one of those “all in” fighters, for whom fighting is not just a deep hobby but a religion, an escape, an identity.

  6. 1 dimensional wrestler vs 1 dimensional MT fighter, ends in a rout
    TUF23

    I like Ashley smashley and i like Lanchana Green. both are cute olive colored shortys. Ashley is a cop, so cool, and she helped protect Milwalkee during the deadly riots so double cool. But…not a fan of her grindy wrestling style, too much cage pressing, Nowhere near the elite of 115 pounders like rose or jedrezcyk. she is more a 105er…the girls at 115 are too big and long.
    And lanchana green apparently doesn’t know that MMA actually stands for Mixed martial Arts. She is only a striker, and couldn’t stop the numerous takedowns and clinches by Ashley.
    The fight doesn’t excite me with all the ducking takedown attempts which go nowhere as ashley doesn’t do anything with them, and lanchana can’t stop them. Finally Lanchana buzzes Smashley with a knee, then you see the fire go out of Ashley’s eyes, and she is just getting rocked about 35 more times, all flush punches and kicks and knees. The ref steps in and Ashley falls over.
    I describe this fight as a first-rate, second-rate fight. Meaning it’s a bad fight, but so bad it’s good.

  7. Zoila Frausto versus Corina Herrera
    Over the hill veteran versus DGAF scrappy newb!
    feb 2016

    So Zoila Frausto, who was once 12-1 and a queen bee of wmma, had lost 4 in a row by the time of this fight. A local fight at Tai Chi palace, i saw this streamed live on some service, maybe AXS fights or something. You know you’re wmma mojo is on the wane when you’re fighting in a casino in 2016 against a 3 fight freshman. But young Corina did not give Zoila a nano ounce of respect ,she blitzed the veteran and never let up the pressure, i was amazed that she gave Zoila no room to breathe, charging in, getting tagged but ignoring the punches.
    Zoila finally got her wits about her and was able to turn the tide, and the judges gave her the decision. It was another ” first-rate, second-rate” fight which just amuses me for the vastly different biographies of the fighters. alli could find was a short highlights video here, you’ll see why cute fiesty littel corina gets her nickname of “Taz”.

  8. reputed Brazilian steroid vs American. Over in seconds
    March 2012.

    another bad fight, a real stinker . even the name of the promotion is scummy sounding: :EB: Beatdown at 4 Bears 10″. sounds like a d-bag local promotion which didn’t do any drug testing….
    Kaline medeiros was reputed to be roiding at this time. she kills Stephanie with one punch, then drops another overhand bomb on her dead body. stephanie hit her head really hard on the way down from the first punch, and so the three impacts really messed her up. i think the compact little part time construction worker either had lots of muscles from working , or had some of the “brazilian horse meat. ”
    i read on some obscure website that Stephanie was in the hospital and was stable , except she couldn’t form any new memories for several days …
    Some jerk put together a video of the fight, showing the brutal sequence from like three angles and in slow motion.

  9. Cyborg destroyed in striking battle – 4 years before Amanda Nunes!
    March 2014

    did you know, did you know? I knew haha
    Cyborg was 12-1 in MMA at this time, and hand’t had a fight in a while.
    Ronda refused her, and a “cyborg” effect occured resulting in women running to other divisions
    so she went to muy thai to bust some chops – she destroeyd Jennifer Columb, i’ll post that video later. Cyborg then ran into the elbows and knees and feet of Jorina Baars, an expert kickboxer a tall European, i think Dutch. jorina tried MMA in the years before but couldn’t adapt. going 1-3

    Cyborg’s high power brawling style was outclassed by the classic MT of Baars, who used elbows, trips, feet and fists and knocked Cyborg on her ass about 10 times!! Jorina showing fearlessness and years of technique. And when cyborg did connect, the 5’11 baars showed an iron chin, cyborg’s metal hands just glancing off. True, Jorina was in danger a few times.
    i saw a video which i can’t find any more, w cyborg saying she actually had a concussion after that fight. Can you believe that? Few have seen this fight, here is a highlight reel for you about a minute in and give the full fight a look, there is no dead time – all action

  10. I’ve got to update and add a few— Lipski vs. Carolina for the brutal finish and being the second women’s UFC fight to end by leg lock and Mackenzie Dern vs. Hannah Cifers— for being the first to end by leg lock

    1. Nice !

      The new versions of Lipski and Talita Santos with Maryna Moroz and a couple others can soon make 125 pretty interesting, I think. Still wish we could see the Bellator flyweights fight the UFC flyweights.
