PostSubject: UFC.com’s 10 Biggest Upsets of 2007   Tue 01 Jan 2008, 6:42 pm




Years from now, 2007 could be remembered as the Year of the Upset in mixed martial arts. Or, perhaps, it could simply be the first year that the sport woke up and realized anyone can win at anytime.

Regardless, the underdogs reigned supreme in the UFC this year, and our friend Thomas Gerbasi of UFC.com created the website’s official Top 10 list of upsets for the 2007 fight season.

Although some choices, such as Quinton Jackson’s first-round TKO of Chuck Liddell at UFC 71, require some clarification as to why they rank where they do, most of the list is pretty straightforward.

So what does the list tell us? If you beat Chuck Liddell or Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic — or if a belt changes hands — there’s a good chance you’ve got an upset on hand. Additionally, we realize just how good the UFC 69 and UFC 76 events were.

In any manner, Gerbasi’s list includes:

  1. Matt Serra def. Georges St. Pierre via first-round TKO, UFC 69
  2. Forrest Griffin def. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua via third-round submission, UFC 76
  3. Gabriel Gonzaga def. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic via first-round KO, UFC 70
  4. Jake O’Brien def. Heath Herring via unanimous decision, UFC Fight Night 8
  5. Houston Alexander def. Keith Jardine via first-round TKO, UFC 71
  6. Quinton Jackson def. Chuck Liddell via first-round TKO, UFC 71
  7. Keith Jardine def. Chuck Liddell via split decision, UFC 76
  8. Cheick Kongo def. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic via unanimous decision, UFC 75
  9. Randy Couture def. Tim Sylvia via unanimous decision, UFC 68
  10. (Tie) Josh Koscheck def Diego Sanchez via unanimous decision, UFC 69/Yushin Okami def. Mike Swick via unanimous decision, UFC 69


For all the details and analysis, head over to UFC.com.
