Top 10 fights in MMA history ranked with Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz 2 at UFC 202 only seventh

The top 10 MMA fights of all-time have been revealed as Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor 2 is only ranked seventh.

Diaz and McGregor ran it back following the Stockton slugger's shock victory at UFC 196 back in March 2016.

The American submitted the Irishman as they renewed hostilities a few months later at UFC 202.

Diaz and McGregor put on a five-round war, with the 'Notorious' exacting revenge - winning the fight by majority decision.



But, according to user rankings on Tapology, the rematch between Diaz and McGregor only comes in at seventh of the best MMA fights in history.

Classic UFC fights, however, feature in the top ten, including one of the most important MMA fights ever.

Check out the list below:


10 - Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit

9 - Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka

8 - Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Zhang Weili

7 - Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor 2


6 - Shogun Rua vs. Dan Henderson

5 - Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero 2

4 - Forest Griffin vs. Stephen Bonnar

3 - Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum


2 - Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson 1

1 - Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald 2


The rematch between Lawler and MacDonald takes the top spot as they were involved in one of the most brutal fights in UFC history. They busted each other up, with MacDonald eventually succumbing to Lawler's onslaught in the fifth round.

The first meeting between Jones and Gustafsson comes in at second as the Swede delivered the best Octagon performance of his career to nearly score a huge upset victory.

Adesanya and Gastelum battled five rounds for the interim UFC middleweight title in an incredible fight.

To this day, Griffin and Bonnar remains the most important fight in MMA history as their slug-fest helped propel the UFC.

MMA legends Shogun and Henderson enjoyed a thrilling fight, going toe-to-toe in the Octagon.

Jedrzejczyk vs. Weili, Teixeira vs. Prochazka and Lawler vs. Condit also feature in the top ten.
