A deep show (in our opinion) is one that features matches between fighters that are BOTH ranked at the time of the match. These first-half shows had the most of these matches.
1st Place: UFC 97 
T-2nd Place: Affliction 2, UFC 95, UFC 98, Sengoku Seventh 
Rounding out the Top 10
T-6th: UFC Fight Night 17, UFC 94, UFC 96 
T-9th: Sengoku No Ran, UFC 99, WEC 40, Dream 8, UFC UF 9 Finale 
Note: The above list was calculated after the fact, using our current ranking limits (Top 150, 100, etc). Although approximate, it should be extremely accurate.
Note #2: List was updated as current ranking limits were not being used.
