Most anticipated/hyped UFC fight

With tomorrow's Silva/Sonnen II fight, and they're calling it the most anticipated fight in UFC history, what is everyone's thoughts on the most hyped/anticipated UFC fight(s).

For me personally, these would be my top 10. (PPV buys next to it)

1. GSP v Penn II (920,000)
2. Silva v Sonnen II (N/A)
3. Lesnar v Mir II (1.6 million)
4. Liddell v Ortiz II (1.05 million)
5. Liddell v Couture II (280,000)
6. Ortiz v Shamrock I (150,000)
7. Rampage vs Rashad (1.05 million)
8. Liddell v Ortiz I (105,000)
9. Liddell vs Silva (750,000)
10. Lesnar vs Couture (1.01 million)

That's a very good list. I seem to remember Liddell/Ortiz 1 having more hype than their rematch but I could be mistaken. Honorable mention to Shogun/Machida 2 and Silva/Sonnen 1

I'd say it's in the mix for tops throwing it in with GSP and Penn. My top 3 fighters of all time Sonnen is a great fighter - as much as I love Silva I can't say I have any clue what will happen tomorrow night.. this trumps any other fight I've been hyped for.... can't ****ing wait!!

Liddell v Rampage was really big for me. The hype was really big leading up to it, Chuck got on the cover of ESPN the magazine that week.

Also Lesnar v Cain was big for me too. The card was deep as well, which helped.

So do I. I also remember Hughes/Royce Gracie having a ton of hype.

Pretty good list. I would throw Liddell/Rampage in there somewhere.

Silva/Sonnen 2 is huge but out of the fights that could and should happen at some point, I'm looking forward to JDS/Overeem and GSP/Diaz more than this one.

Many good matches listed! I have not been pumped to buy a PPV for quite a while but silva vs sonnen 2 sold me. I have quite a few favorite fights that I myself was hyped to watch:

Belfort vs W. Silva - Ultimate Brazil
Tito vs K. Shamrock - Vendetta
Couture vs Liddell 2
St. Pierre vs Kos 2
Overeem vs Lesner
Rampage vs Liddell
Penn vs St. Pierre
Florian vs Gomi
St. Pierre vs Fitch
Sonnen vs Silva 2

god I could make a list of at least 30 fights I was hyped for.
As for as media hype that reached out to non fight fans....I have to give it to Sonnen vs Silva 2. Pretty much had 8 non fight fans wanting to tag along with five of us to see who wins so we ended up hosting it at my friends cabin.

Next up for hype will be Overeem and JDS..........fingers crossed.
