Another awesome selection showing five of the very best comebacks in the history of the UFC. Whether it’s the former Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, almost getting stopped by Shane Carwin. But turning the fight on its head to win via head and arm choke. Miesha “Cupcake” Tate winning the bantamweight belt from the new Champion Holly Holm in her very first defence.
Todd Duffee was steaming through Mike Russo, with superior speed and athleticism. The fight looked signed sealed delivered until Russo caught Duffee flat-footed and knocked him out cold. As Joe Rogan said, like a scene from a movie. Frank Mir making a Superman-like recovery against Big Nog. Only to get hold of his arm and snap it with a typical Mir submission win via kimura. Did you have to snap it, Frank, did you?
What about Darren Elkins in a fight he wasn’t supposed to win? Facing a dangerous talented fighter in Mirsad Bektic. At one point Bektic had Elkins in a crucifix and was reigning blows down, cutting him badly. Losing on points and with some deep cuts. Elkins made a comeback and knocked out Bektic with a series of strikes followed by a kick to the head, what a comeback! And one which makes Joe Rogan tear up to his very day.
