Alistair Overeem , Sergei Kharatinov , Luke Cummo , Jeremy Horn , Anderson Silva , Valentijn Overeem ,Kazushi Sakuraba, Nate Diaz and his brother, Aleksander Emilanienko and his brother are some of my favorite fighters to watch . I was a big PRIDE FC fan as you can see .

I'd have a hard time naming my favorite. I only know that it isn't Brock Lesnar :roll:

Broc Lesnar is an undeniable force in MMA . Somebody will eventually :boxer: up that big head of his . Rumor is he was grappling with Gabriel Gonzaga at an exhibition and submitted him in a Kimura in around 30 seconds .

Yeah they said it happenned at Ludlow Mass. I dont know anyone who was there. I think that two things come to mind. It didnt happen or it was an exhibition and brock came at full force before
Ganzaga could up his intensity. Interesting that they describe him doing the same thing to Ganzaga that Mir faulted himself for letting brock do during their match. Letting Brock take the wrist in a prone postiion.

Anderson Silva. Watching him fight is like seeing perfection embodied. He is amazing. Also probably the nicest guy the sport has ever seen.

Years and years ago Mark Kerr was invincible, then he screwed it up with pain killers.

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.

GENKI SUDO HILIGHT REEL

I have to agree, genki sudo is one of the most entertaining fighters I have seen :D .

This doesn't make him my favorite, but I do find it comical, but not for the homeless guy.

Jake Shields - The makings of a true role model (being a vegetarian helps)
Forrest Griffin - No matter how many bad losses he takes, his endearing every-man personality and demeanor will see him through
Frank Mir - He's got determination and style, time and time again he beats the odds and bounces back. Watch out Brock. Part 3 is coming.
Brock Lesnar - His dominance makes his fights extremely entertaining if nothing else
Anderson Silva - because he is soft spoken and respectful when he could clearly be otherwise
GSP - He's got 500 suits and all the ladies love him :lol:
Mackens Semerzier - a local fighter who has broken into the WEC and has been dominant thus far. Will be watching his career with great interest.

I am guessing you mean putrifying, we dont want people thinking that meat purify's anything . :lol:

:lol: true. I agree about forrest as well as bonner, that TUF made them famous in the industry but bonner has either been injured for the upteenth time or has not fared quite so well. Forrest did win the championship but against rampage who has always been a sucker for anything under the belt. He just doesnt like acknowledging those kicks. I would have been very interested to see him in his now off fight with Rashad, because rashad will kick like crazy given the chance thanks to the influence of his pal jardine.

While we are at it. I dont know why Forrest stepped in to the ring with anderson silva. I hate when a lower weight division kicks the crap out of a former or present champion of a higher division. Now everything forrest does will be tempered in my eyes with " yeah but you are protected by a weight division from anderson silva" So now he has to dump anderson or lose even more cache in my eyes. Now I know there is alot of talk about anderson moving up a division, but that hasnt happenned yet that I am aware of.

Fedor and Anderson also GSP for today. :lol:
