ZMG's Top 100 Fight Scenes

While I find myself agreeing with many of your choices (and admiring the dedication to put together 100 fights)--Johnny Cage versus that boss... Goro! That fight took the cake in Mortal Kombat.

I had considered it. The dialogue was decent if only a couple lines but the fight itself was little more than a quick blow to the yarbles, some long shot fighting and a very cheesy fall off the side of a cliff.
