5 Best UFC fight cards of all time
- These cards featured some of the greatest UFC fighters of all time, including the likes of Conor McGregor and Michael Bisping.
Over the years, UFC has delivered some memorable fight cards.
Though the definition of a ‘good fight card’ might vary from person to person, there is a handful of fight cards which a majority of the fans would agree on.
This might be due to the star power that the fight card boasts or the memorable moments that it produced. Or it could even be a combination of these two. The possible permutations and combinations are many.
So, without any more beating around the bush, here is a look at some of the best UFC fight cards of all time.
#5 UFC 217
UFC 217 was one of the best cards in recent history. The event took place on November 4, 2017, at Madison Square Garden and was headlined by the Middleweight championship bout between champion Michael Bisping and the returning Georges St. Pierre. It was GSP's first fight in nearly five years and since it was two legends, the hype was real.
The fight lived up to the billing and saw GSP finish Bisping in the third round via TKO.
In the co-main event, TJ Dillashaw knocked out Cody Garbrandt to win the UFC Bantamweight title and it was an equally compelling fight. The showdown between Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jędrzejczyk was another major attraction on the card. Joanna seemed unstoppable as the champion coming into the fight but Namajunas surprised everyone by knocking out Joanna in the first round itself.
There were some memorable moments and fights in the undercard as well featuring names like Stephen Thompson, Jorge Masvidal, Paulo Costa, Johny Hendricks, and James Vick among others.
