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 5 Finale Nate Diaz vs Manny Gamburyan3. Nate Diaz takes on Karo Parisyan, Season 5
Nate Diaz refused to be punked by Karo Parisyan (who was there to visit his cousin, fellow finalist Manny Gamburyan) in season 5. Some people try to pull rank on you and just expect you to cater to their ego. Something has to be said for standing your ground when you're the newcomer

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.
