UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights Premiers Tonight

Except it’s not actually all 100 of the UFC’s “greatest fights.” Dave Meltzer explains (via Bloody Elbow):

“I am told the five-part show, which concludes an hour before UFC 100, is very good. As for the list, let’s just say it’s so petty that they didn’t even allow fans to vote for the fight that was No. 2 (Frank Shamrock vs. Ortiz) in this web site’s poll and even No. 7 in their own magazine. Basically, everyone on the outs (Ortiz, Frank Shamrock, Maurice Smith) were not allowed to be voted onto the top 100 by fans unless it’s a match they lost, and since Frank Shamrock never lost in UFC, he doesn’t appear at all. Ortiz’s losses will likely all crack the top 100 but none of his wins were allowed to be voted on.”

That sounds about right. The show premiers tonight at 9PM on Spike TV.
