Which discipline is the most impressive to watch in mma (UFC)?

Im not talking about which one is the most effective, but which one is the most impressive/pretty to see.

Do you guys prefer a westling (doubles,singles,slams),striking (flying knees, spinning stuff), BJJ (transitions,chokes,arm/leglocks,sweeping)

Personally I prefer bjj myself, seeing nate triangling fighters with 2 fingers in their face is badass XD

Muay Thai is the best to watch. Cung Le's Sanshou or however you spell it is fun to watch as well. Pretty much anything that combines kicks and punches are the best IMO. Muay Thai also has the clinch that is fun to watch.

Kind of a bitch answer, but i love it most when everything is combined. Really enjoyed Korean Zombies blend of slugging, takedowns and slick submissions to dismantle Poirier.

BJJ is the most impressive for me when a fighter is able to pull off a quick transition, or when two BJJ guys are attacking each other and the dominate position is going back and forth.

It's not exactly a prominent aspect of a 99% of the fighters arsenals.

I really, REALLY like seeing slick head movement. Silva/Aldo and Pearson before he became a brawler (WHY WHY WHY).

Judo throws and slick, fast moving BJJ.

I'm a bit bias for muay thai. I love good clinchwork and standing elbows. Just don't see it all that often in MMA.

Hard to go past a really slick BJJ sweep or sub though.
