It's the most significant fight in UFC history.

Griffin vs Bonnar 1 was probably the most important fight in UFC history.

And Lesnar vs Mir 2 was probably the biggest fight in UFC history.

Definitely not the biggest fight in UFC history.  There were several other fights that meant so much more.  Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to seeing this event tonight.

I agree with Greg. This is a huge fight. If they put on a show the UFC will gain millions of new fans. Not only that, but this is the first proven #1 vs. #2 heavyweight fight in a long time. A lot of people probably had Cain at number 2 before the Velasquez fight, but a lot had Overeem and Werdum ranked higher. Now there is no debate, number 1 vs number 2, two huge prospects who are finally going to fight. 

Remember when this fight almost went down at UFC 108? Back when it was just two up and comers? Someone got injured, but we all knew this fight would eventually happen. Two unstoppable up and comers. In my opinion, this is not only one of the best HW fights, it's one of the best fights in UFC history. I really hope they deliver.

It's not only about Dos Santos VS Velasquez, it's also about being the first fight on FOX, the first fight to have big promotion during the NFL, NCAA, Baseball...

I understand the point just fine, Gregory.  I just don't agree.

Every heavyweight championship has been more significatnt than the last. Lesnar vs Mir was before Cain and JDS had established themselves. We had a changing of the guard, and now we get to see a fight which is unequivically the most biggest HW fight in the history of mma so far. No question.

I'm skipping a friend's wedding to watch this, does that make me a horrible friend?

when he personally gave me the invitation he said: "well, here you go...I know it's the same day as the UFC fights, but I hope you can make it". I think he understands... I'll still try to make it after the fights, its a long drive.
