Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by The Fight Network's John Pollock.
On the heels of Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson's five-round instant classic at UFC 165 in Toronto, Breen and Pollock look at whether or not “Bones” and “The Mauler” staged the best title fight in UFC history and how it stacks up against the greatest of yesteryear. The two consider Jones-Gustafsson alongside the Octagon's best title clashes, such as Randy Couture-Pedro Rizzo 1 and Frankie Edgar-Gray Maynard 2 and 3, as well the sport's all-time best from other promotions, including Benson Henderson-Anthony Pettis 1, Wanderlei Silva-Quinton Jackson 2 and others.
Breen and Pollock weigh in on the trend toward having more memorable 25-minute fights in the sport, how and why it's come to pass, the three greatest Bellator title bouts to date, which UFC current champions might be primed to have a title classic in the near future and much more.
