Calling all JMMA aficionados and fight historians!

The 25th anniversary of the Pancrase organization is coming up and UFC Fight Pass will be commemorating the milestone by releasing a collection of the 25 greatest fights in the organization's history.

I can't give you a 100% guarantee, but I have it on good authority that if Tapology can help come up with some of its own favorite and best Pancrase fights, we can:

a) make a big influence on the collection
b) get some of the fights released for free

So dig into your memory banks and post a list of or any individual Pancrase fights you loved. Deadline is a couple days from now!!

Bas Rutten vs Funaki. If impatient, skip to ~20:00 mark to see finishing sequence with a disgusting knee at the end.

I've been off the grid for a week cause of hurricane Florence, but now that I'm back, as soon as I find the energy I'll make a list. Is it too late for the whole Fight Pass thing?
