The difference is they have character, flair, they all have their own unique traits which make them stand out as an MMA fighter.

Jon Jones with his sick trips and vicious elbows. Velasquez with his relentless, ruthless ground and pound, Ortiz with his elbows and GNP from the guard position, Randy's legendary clinch work and dirty boxing. They all have character, they all have flair.

I'm just sick to death of these faceless, bland wrestle-boxers jumping straight from college because MMA is the cool thing to do for youngsters thinking they're going to be champion some day. They have nothing that makes them stand out, nothing for me to root for, they're boring, generic and seem to be over populating the UFC roster. I'm just tired of them.
I don't often agree with this guy, but I see where he's coming from on this.

There's a whole bunch of Koscheck the next generation fighters out there. Athletic wrestlers with a fast power double, a smothering top game. And punching power without much diversity.
