Most Boring Fights In The History Of UFC

UFC has given us some of the greatest fights, but also the most boring ones. Here are some that will put you to sleep-

Dan Severn vs Ken Shamrock at UFC 9 (Catchweight championship)

The sluggish fight went on for 30 minutes, torturing the audience with two men only circling around each other most of the time.

Anderson Silva vs. Patrick Cote at UFC 90 (Middleweight championship)

Though considered one of the greatest during the time, Anderson Silva managed to put the audience to sleep by avoiding contact with his opponent Patrick Cote, during the fight.

The trilogy fight was a complete fail as it didn't succeed at capturing fans' interest after the two phenomenal face-offs before.

Tim Sylvia vs. Andrei Arlovski III, UFC 61 (Heavyweight championship)

Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia at UFC 112 (Middleweight championship) Even the UFC president Dana White agree with us on this one!

The one match that was so slow-paced, continued till the 4th round with Maia on the canvas the entire time, White had to take the matter into his hands and present the title to Silva's manager in the middle of the fourth round.

Francis Ngannou vs Derrick Lewis, UFC 226 (Heavyweight championship)

The bout between the two seemed more like a game of defence, which made the audience doze-off midway, making it one unforgettably boring fight.

Israel Adesanya vs Yoel Romero, UFC 248 (Middleweight championship)

Started off as a very much anticipated bout, the bar soon went underground as it turned out to be one of the most boring fights in UFC. Even the UFC president Dana White admitted to regretting the decision of booking the match.

And the last but not the least, the fight that put Israel Adesanya to sleep!

Rose Namajunas vs Carla Esparza at UFC 274 (Women's strawweight championship)

Adesanya, who once gave fans the most boring fight himself, called it the most boring title fight ever.

Which is the most boring title fight in the history of UFC according to you?
