favorite fighter and why?
my favorite fighter is Ian 'The Machine' Freeman,why ? because hes the owner of the gym i use, hes promoting the fights and im taking part in the fights he promotes i am happy he let me get matched up with one of his lads. he told me i am doing great doing my own training and actually showing a difference. from 46kg to 65kg in 2 months all intense training while working at mcdonalds haha free mcdonalds meal a day thats my only carb load of the day haha

Haha, those are all valid reasons. Mine is Korean Zombie. I know a lot of people are riding the bandwagon now but I knew KZ back from Deep and Sengoku and I can tell you Korean Zombie isn't just "improving every UFC fight." He was capable of doing all he did now back then, just not as refined and patient as he is. The reason why KZ is one of my favorite is because he comes to fight and he puts on a show. Too many times has KZ lost due to getting robbed from judges scoring (Japanese judges primarily played favorites with Japanese fighters. Sort of the same here in UFC too. Korean fighters generally don't get much kudos from judges).

Also, some of the fighters he trains/spars with will make him better. He sparred with Fedor Emelianenko once. Of course KZ lost but still. He trained with Benson Henderson for Dustin Poirier match. Training with someone a weight class above him. Shows a lot of heart and determination. I really hope he's got a good strategy against Jose Aldo. His great chin won't make him invincible to those kicks.

Favourite fighter, mmm cant say i have one fighter i favour over others. There are some i dont particularly think very highly of but thats it.

how tall are you OP? Just curious.

Also Nick Diaz, exciting fighter, brilliant fighter and just brings excitement to his fights. He brings an extra intensity to his fights that no other of my favourites can bring.

I don't really have a favorite fighter. I like guys who come to fight and who're highly active. Guys like Condit (before he lost his killer instinct... hopefully he finds it again), Kampmann, Fedor, Cruz, Frankie, the Diaz brothers, KZ, you get the idea.
