BJ Penn (see avatar for details)

Chuck, for being my first 'favourite' and getting me into MMA. The first time I saw him batter Ortiz against the cage with a flurry...I fell in love

I have three.

From the 90's it was The Phenom. He was the first BJJ blackbelt who liked to bang and knock people out cold. BJ, Nick, and Nate have followed suit. Definitely the Mike Tyson of MMA.

Early to late 2000s it was Crocop. After watching Tito, Coleman, Hughes, Randy, and basically all the wrestling based fighters take over it was refreshing to see a one dimensional striker kick peoples' heads off...literally.

Presently the MW Kingpin. He is truly one of the few if not the only fighter that I've witnessed able to put EVERYTHING together in a very calculating way. He does not fight just to win. He fights to end you decisively...when he wants to.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Brock Lesnar is my favorite fighter. I like him so much because he's a villain, no one gave him a chance, and he won the belt so quick. Its sad he won't be fighting anymore, but I really enjoyed him as a fighter and entertainer in the UFC.

the Spider.

The very first MMA fight I ever watched was Yves Edwards V Josh Thompson back in the day and i loved his style, Anderson is kinda like an Yves Edwards but a million times better.

No.2 is Cain, very humble, love his terminator style.

No.3 is Barao, I love his style, very nice guy aswell.

No.4 is Nate Diaz because he has never been in a boring fight.

No.5 is Erick Silva, a Brazilian prototype designed to destroy GSP, Big Nog & Andy's protege

From reading this you can probably tell that I love fluid striking and BJJ.

Silva is definately a good fighter but to me he can be arrogant at times. I do like Cain as well, really humble guy to say the least. Nate to me though is beyond arrogant at times.
