Luke Cummo5. Sam Morgan vs. Luke Cummo, Season 2 Semifinals
Sam gets knocked out and cries once he realizes he lost. As a viewer, I could see that both guys left it all in the ring chasing their dream. It also makes you realize that sometimes you will come up short.

The Ultimate Fighter Episode 09 Frank Lester vs David Faulkner1. David Faulkner vs. Frank Lester, Season 9
Yes, I'm a little biased, but my personal favorite is Lester vs. Faulkner. It's just a great comeback story that proves it's never just skill in this game -- often heart can supersede skill and take you just as far.

See DaMarques at UFC 112 Saturday, April  10
