Default Great MMA Rivalries of All Time

Let´s talk about the biggest Rivalries in MMA History. We have quite a few....
I´ll start with an amazing one.....

Jorge Patino "Macaco" vs José "Pelé" Landy

Still in the early days, when people knew it as Vale-Tudo, and only few people were aware of the fights, José Pelé and Macaco started one of the biggest (if not the bigger) rilvaries in the history.
Macaco was a talented fighter with many wins......On the other hand Pelé was a unknown fighter from a gym very unknown in national terms at the time, the Legendary Chute Boxe !

They really hated each other at the time of their fights......After those fights everyone started to know the name of Pelé and more, the name Chute Boxe started to be feared and respected due to Pelé.....

Funnily enough, some years later both become friends and even trained in the same gym, because Macaco many years later joined the Chute Boxe....

Thats supposed to be a rivalry? Royce vs. Shamrock was awesome as well. You have two guys in a tournament in a sport not many knew about at the time. Different styles, both goes through his group easily and meets in the finals not knowing which style will win. That was great anticipation at the time.

Brazilian Top Team vs Chute Boxe

What an epic rivalry, Ninja-Sperry was an absolute WAR!!!, let alone Lil Nog vs Shogun, Azeredo vs Buscape, Wand vs Arona among others.

Was just about to say the same. Matter of fact Chute Boxe against everybody!
Plus Chute Boxes rivalry with Hammer House was pretty epic too when Coleman broke Shoguns arm. Coleman went schiz in the ring and Ninjas Sphincter tightened up.

Those days when you had rival camps going up against each other were the best. Hammer House. BTT. RTT. Chute Boxe.
Funny though i never recall RTT really involved in rivalry's with any other camp?

Yeah, Fedor Vs Big Nog' is the one for me. The two greatest Heavyweights, one epic fight, one brief interlude and disappointing ending bringing us to the rubber match. And what a night for Fedor that was!

The Gracie's Vs Japan: throughout the ages, and especially Vs Sakuraba.

Yeah, the guys from Chute Boxe were a pain in the ass, everyone hated them.....Even some of their fighters were uncomfortable with the aggressive mood of the team, in his Biography Anderson Silva heavily criticized the Chute Boxe bosses, Rudimar Fendrigo and RAfael Cordeiro, saying that Cordeiro slapped him in the face one day because Anderson mentioned that he would give BJJ classes to a guy outside the gym....
Chute Boxe never accepted the fact that the BTT helped Yamamoto in his trainning camp for the fight against Assuério Silva, since that day things got crazy between the two teams.....
Inside that rivalry CB vs BTT probably Wanderlei vs Arona was the greater.....

They had a rivalry with the Red Devil.....Kharitonov never forgave Fedor because he left the RTT to join the Red Devil.....

Chute Boxe really were a pack of animals, I bet we havent even heard the half of the stuff they got up too

And Coleman's ''My Dad'' line always cracks me up

Tito v The Lions Den deserves a mention. Ken legitimately wanted to kill that guy
