Default MMA's Greatest Round

The whole MMA explosion of the last decade has largely past me by. Except for maybe the first couple of UFC events and a few badly organised events from Russia in the 90s I'm a blank sheet.

If you were to recommend one round that epitomises the best of everything MMA has to offer, it's greatest round which would it be?

Does it have a Hagler Hearns 1, a Corrales Castillo 10, a Sithchatchawal v Monshipour 10, a Gatti Ward 9 or anything like the many "hair standing on the back of your neck rounds" like Barrera v Morales gave us?

Nick Diaz vs Paul Daley, round 1, always deserves a mention IMO......

For me, its Hughes vs. Trigg II, or Lesnar vs. Mir I. Great first rounds.

The 1st round of Sanchez vs. Guida was rather batshit crazy.

I agree with Daley/Diaz. Both rounds of Hominick/Jabouin are insane, too. That's probably my all time favorite fight. A two round war.

This one doesn't encompass everything MMA has to offer, but it is a great fight to show to people that are iffy about the ground game.

Somewhat lesser known guys, but the first round of this fight is a war. The second round has one of the nicest standing elbows you will in MMA.

PRIDE 25. The first time Big Nog and Fedor fought. Was ****ing insane. Some of the most brutal GnP in the history of the heavyweight division. Bas and the Fight Professor were going nuts like children for the entire 3 rounds.
And Igor vs Inoue. That fight was sooo F'in brutal it would make you wince. Both men wailed on each other for 10 minutes. Except Inoue was left with a swollen brain in hospital for 3 months and couldn't even walk by the end of the fight.
Honourable mention has to be Shogun Henderson as well in recent memory. Dam shame that fight never happened in PRIDE.

Hendo / Shogun. I believe the 2nd round, could be wrong though.

Shogun vs Minotouro round 1 (IIRC was the round 1 the best, the whole fight is great)
