Re: Your favorite era of UFC?
Love the Tito/Chuck=Rock/Austin analogy. That is spot on(on a somewhat smaller scale of course).
Also, that whole build up to Brock vs Mir at UFC 100 was such a great organically built up storyline. It's no wonder why that drew such big numbers. Mir tapped Brock in his debut after a controversial referee interference that somewhat protected Brock in defeat. Brock literally almost kills his next opponent, Mir goes on to win the Interim title from Noguiera, Brock wins the real title from Couture within a couple months apart. Both the lineal and interim belts were disputed at the time, Couture was the lineal champ but he had been gone over a year, Noguiera had just as much of a claim to the title as Couture did in actuallity). Then the trash talking between those two guys leading up to UFC 100. It was a very well set up rematch a year or so in the making, with two champions unifying the titles. I don't know if you could ask for a better backstory for a fight or a wrestling match.
