In looking ahead to this weekend's UFC 160 fight card, we revisit that one special moment in the career of each main card fighter that best defines him as a mixed martial artist.
The moments chosen for these combatants all meet certain criteria. One, they represent a time of transition for the fighters, either marking an accomplishment, disappointment or career move. Two, they are memorable. Three, they altered the manner in which fans and media perceived the fighters.
There are several ways to go about choosing a set of criteria, but we are using the one laid out above.
Also note that many fighters have experienced several such moments during their careers, and in those cases, the "defining" moment was chosen at the discretion of the writer.
