Not the highest skill fight in the world, but lots of twists and turns, and certainly no shortage of action. A bit reminiscent of Sithchatchawal-Monshipour.
I don't know if it's a no-brainer for fight of the year, especially when this is the same year as Vasquez-Marquez III, but I'm sure it will make a lot of lists at the end of the year.
SC's Edit: Everyone watch this fight. Your 2008 best-of lists are not complete without it.
