There are a lot of upsets to pick from.  I think you could argue a ton of upsets in the top10.  The must haves on your list is Serra/Gsp 1 and Fedor/Werdum imo.

What I don't get about these rankings, is that it isn't really objective criteria. The odds have been made, and it is just fact about which is the biggest upset. 

However, I say that when I'm sure mine aren't in proper order (I think Nogueira/Soko is number one)

@Cash, I've got it in the exact same spot.  And Saku was kicking Elvis' ass before he caught that knee.

@Gloom..good job!  the more I think about that fight the more I think I should have it even higher...not only was it such an upset but it just came from no where..It was almost embarrassing to watch how Schembri was completely a deer in headlights in that fight until the finish

Good call @Swick... any list w/out that fight is pretty shabby.

@Cash, then there's the rematch.  Saku completely outclassed him again.  Truely a fluke KO, the only one of Schembri's career.

@Gloom I still remember Renzo's reaction to Schembri winning..he was like "finally we got that f@#ker!" funny that it was Elvis freaking Schembri and not any Gracie that beat him..and for the record i will NEVER have Petruzelli/Slice on any upset list never mind a top 10
