UFC

In combat sports, the greatest champions have always defined themselves through trilogies against other great champions. Muhammad Ali fought timeless trilogies against Joe Frazier and Ken Norton, Georges St. Pierre battled 3 times against Matt Hughes, and Fedor Emelianenko battled the great Antonio "Minotauro" Nogueira in the Pride ring. Even lower level fighters can elevate themselves to legendary status through a great trilogy — Gatti vs. Ward is a prime example.

While the record may show that Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez both possess one win against the other, the record doesn't tell the full story. In their first encounter in November 2011, Junior Dos Santos blitzed the current heavyweight kingpin at 1:04 of the first round — on the first ever card televised live on Fox — to take the heavyweight strap from the newly minted champ. In their second encounter, then challenger and current champion Velasquez was able to stagger Dos Santos in the first round and proceed to dish out a sustained beating over 5 rounds, handing the Brazilian champion his first UFC loss.
