Top 10 Biggest Fights that Never Happened

In MMA’s relatively short life span the sport has missed some intriguing bouts due to promotional shake-ups, retirement, injuries, or simply bad timing. Here’s a look at ten possible pairings most fans would kill to see…

Randy Couture vs. Fedor Emelianenko

Picture 9 of 10

“The Last Emperor” against “The Natural”? Talk about a no-brainer! At one time, this was the most talked about ‘superfight’ in the sport following Emelianenko’s free agency after the UFC purchased the remnants of PRIDE FC back in 2007. Speculation followed that Couture was offered somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000,000 plus to stand across the ring from Fedor at an Affliction show, but wasn’t able to do so, as he was still under contract with the UFC. In an effort to make this dream fight a reality the UFC began efforts to lure Fedor into the Octagon. Try as they might, however, UFC never could get Emelianenko to ink that dotted line and fans lost out on one of the sport’s most anticipated fights in history.
