9. Connor MacLeod Vs Kurgan (Highlander)
Connor first encounters Kurgan, a mercenary, in early 16th century during a battle between the MacLeod clan and the Clan Fraser. Connor was nearly beheaded, but rescued by his cousins, Dougal and Angus. Five years later, Kurgan sexually abused MacLeod’s wife while Connor is away. As bitter rivals, Connor and Kurgan eventually meet in 20th century at New York, which results in numerous intense sword fighting.
