A UFC title shot is supposed to be something special. It's supposed to represent the two best fighters at a given weight class going against one another to see who is the best in the world.There have been a number of title fights that became instant classics, but there have also been a number of duds as well.
The anticipation builds in the weeks leading up to a fight. Perhaps the two guys engage in some trash talk to help generate some pay-per-view buys or maybe they become a little too critical of the other's talents. Maybe it's a rematch and fans are anticipating a different outcome. Any number of these factors, along with others, help build the anticipation for a title fight.
More often than not, these title fights play out in exciting fashion.
Yet the fights on this list failed to move the excitement meter. They were some of the worst title fights to watch, and that was due to the fight being extremely boring or extremely one-sided.
I shouldn't have to explain what made some of these fights so boring, as any fan can realize that a stalemate on the ground, or on the feet, isn't entertaining in the least. I also believe that every MMA fan can appreciate one fighter dominating over another, but there comes a point in time where the fight should end. Whether that be with the referee stepping in or the dominant fighting closing the deal, these one-sided bouts lasted for far too long.
Here are the five worst title fights in UFC history.
