Default Which fight was the highest-level ever fought? Both guys ATGs?

Is it the GSP-BJ Penn fights?

I mean, if you're making a top-10 p4p MMA ATG list, then GSP and BJ are both on there.

And there's more than a few who say that those guys are two of the five best MMA fighters to ever compete.

Hughes vs GSP and Fedor vs Nogueira. Penn was never a ATG welterweight

I rank Fedor #1 of all-time and Big Nog #4 of all-time, therefore Fedor vs Nog is the highest level ever in terms of ATGs involved.

Fedor v Nogueira

You rank GSP and Silva above Nogueira I take it?
I think Andersons MW division has been poor. Cant argue with St Pierre though.

I think the answer is currently Fedor and Nogueira.

I suppose there was a time when Sakuraba and Royce Gracie would have been considered as such.

I wonder if our next fight like that will come from the 155lb division.

Hughes-GSP is a good shout.

The greatest welterweight ever up to that point against the greatest welterweight ever going forward.
