one of my favorites has always been GENKI SUDO!

though he is retired now, while active he had one of the most entertaining fighting styles
and definitely had the best entrances.
and he's not just flashy entrances, he backed it up.
very unorthodox, crazy fighting moves, and an all around great fighter.

GSP
Rickson Gracie
Forrest Griffith

I dislike Tito Ortiz and BJ Penn the most (Bisping is getting there too)
talk about mouth pieces!!!!

i knew Jake Shields was a vegetarian, but i had no idea the Diaz brothers were.
but they all train at the same camp under Cesar Gracie, so maybe some of Shields habits rubbed off on them :D

In my opinion should put a weight limit of the maximum category, otherwise goes as k1.
Someone like Brock Lesnar did not rise more towel off.
He rightly uses the rules to his advantage but its meetings are disgusting.
Did it lies above and hammer you until failure. :?

There IS a maximum weight limit. The heavyweight division goes from 206 to 265 lb (93 to 120 kg). Brock's natural, walking around weight is somewhere more in the range or 280-285.
It might be good for UFC to implement a superheavyweight division, like K-1 but I don't think they'd be able to get enough good fighters to fill it.

I really dont think a superheavyweight catagory would be exciting at all. Id much rather watch grass grow then watch two fattys hugging each other for 15-25 minutes.

yes,Jake shields is vegetarian,him and his brother were raised pretty much vegan by their veg*n parents.
Both nick and nate,i have read in a few places are veggie and maybe vegan,they are buddies with jake shields so maybe he put them on the right track,dunno.
