Recommendations for the Most Brutal Fights in MMA

Hi all, first time posting after reading through these bored every day for quite a while now.

I basically need recommendations of fights that were brutal, but also have meaning to them, ones that show a fighters courage, I'm looking for more than just blood and beatdowns, it needs to have context and significance.

The Henderson Rua fight comes to mind for pure brutal.

I'm basically a huge Boxing and MMA fan and I'm trying to create a video for MMA similar to the one I did for boxing, (same idea, but different angle) which can be seen here:

It's easier to find brutal fights in MMA (smaller gloves, more offense etc) so I'm really just looking for the significance of a fight, shot, knockout etc. Something to really pull at the heart strings and make people appreciate these modern day Gladiators.

Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas.
