Fight of the Year

Winner: Forrest Griffin vs. Quinton Jackson (UFC 86 - July 5)

This was a close, five-round battle for one of MMA's most coveted titles. From beginning to end, both fighters had each other on the brink of defeat, but neither man would be finished.

In the end, Griffin earned the decision victory to become the first Ultimate Fighter winner to see championship gold. The outcome was highly controversial, but luckily these two fighters seem to be destined to meet again.

Honorable Mention: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Tim Sylvia (UFC 81), Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch (UFC 87), Chris Lytle vs. Paul Taylor (UFC 89)
