The Most Memorable Moments in UFC History

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans have seen some pretty unforgettable moments. From unbelievable knockouts to intense rivalries, the UFC has given some of the most memorable moments in sports history, some of which went against all of the odds on offer from the offshore betting sites at the time.

Let’s look at some of the most iconic UFC moments.

#1. The Rise of Conor McGregor

Perhaps the most memorable moment in recent UFC history is the rise of Irish fighter Conor McGregor. McGregor defeated Jose Aldo in 2015 and went on to become the undisputed featherweight champion, cementing his status as one of the greatest fighters in MMA history.

Particularly impressive as it was only his fifth bout in UFC, and he had already won a championship belt. His cheeky personality and unmatched skill made him an instant fan favorite and led him to become a global superstar.

#2. Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm

In 2015, Ronda Rousey took on Holly Holm for the bantamweight title— this fight will be recorded as one of the biggest upsets in MMA history. Despite being considered by many to be unbeatable, Rousey was knocked out by Holm in round two via head kick and punches.

It was a shocking turn of events for fans who had been captivated by her dominance up until then—and it marked a new era for women’s MMA with Holm taking center stage as the new champion.

#3. Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir Part I & II

Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir is arguably one of the greatest rivalries in UFC history. The two men first met inside the octagon in 2008 when Lesnar defended his heavyweight title against Mir—a fight ended with Lesnar being submitted by Mir via knee bar early into round one.

They would meet again six months later at UFC 100, where Lesnar exacted revenge by knocking out Mir via punches late into round two—a spectacular ending to an unforgettable rivalry between two great fighters.
