what fights would you recommend to someone's who's just getting into mma?

To be honest, I kind of prefer female fights. I find them more entertaining. I've seen some of Ronda's fights and some other random female fights I found on Youtube. From the men, I think the only ones I've seen are a few of Lesnar's.

    Gina Carano vs. Julie Kedzie really put WMMA on the map in the US:

    Cung Le vs. Frank Shamrock was an entertaining stand-up battle:

    The third match in Pancrase between Shamrock and Bas Rutten had some entertaining moments. The rules were pretty different from modern rules: no close-fist punches to the head, and you could escape a submission by grabbing the ropes:

    Highlights of Kazushi Sakuraba vs. a young Quinton "Rampage" Jackson:

    Really, there's a bunch. Most you can't find online. Carlos Condit tends to have pretty exciting matches, early 2000's Sakuraba would do some wild stuff, I always liked Spencer Fisher's striking and Karo Parisyan's throws, Fedor Emelianenko would run through people, Igor Vovchanchyn would hit people like they'd slept with his mother, Cristiane "Cyborg" (Santos) Justino has smashed all of her competition, Ken Shamrock was a submission machine during his Pancrase/early UFC days, Megumi Fujii is the greatest female fighter to ever live, Genki Sudo was about entertaining the crowd as much as he was about winning, watching Ikuhisa Minowa submit giant guys is always fun... it depends on what you want to see, I guess.

    Most fights with greats like Fedor, Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, or GSP are great to watch.
