Rematches are a big part of MMA. Can you honestly tell me we wouldn't be where we are today if Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski hadn't battled it out three times in the UFC Octagon? Well, we probably would, considering that those fights set the new standard for boredom.
But intense series of fights between two fighters can be a major drawing point for fans. Don't tell me that Ken Shamrock's intense hatred for Tito Ortiz didn't have something to do with them drawing about 750,000 pay-per-view battles in the mid-2000's when they fought, or when they drew an equally as impressive number to Spike when they fought for a third time.
Fans like rematches, especially when they feel one fighter was given the short end of the stick in the first fight.
In the 17 year history of the UFC, there have been many rematches, from the lesser-known series between Oleg Taktarov and Dan Severn, to the almost legendary battles between UFC rivals Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell.
In the following contents, I have compiled a list of the twenty best series of fights, or rematches.
Please feel free to comment, and let me know which rematches you felt were left out. It makes for a great debate. Now, on to the main event!
