1. Yoshihiro Akiyama
Total package, this guy, so fun.

2. Mitsuhiro Ishida
Most relentless fighter I've ever seen, so damn fast.

3. Kazushi Sakuraba
A complete legend, his Gracie Hunting days make me wet.

4. Takanori Gomi
Extremely exciting, so dominant and insane hands

5.Genki Sudo
Was such an exciting character, loved everything about him.




1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Incredible fighter, incredible heart.

2. Wanderlei Silva
Love his fight and his career, really carried PRIDE.

3. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Big Nogs other half, this guy also has tons of heart and is a great fighter

4. Lyoto Machida
Love his style, plus he seems like a cool guy.

5. Anderson Silva
I don't tend to love him publicly, but I love his game.




1. Bas Rutten
Do I really need to explain?

2. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic
One of the greatest legends, Mirko revolutionized striking on both fronts.

3. Fedor Emelianenko
An MMA deity, and rightly so

4. Aleksander Emelianenko
Some of the sickest hands in the HW div.

5. Paul Daley
My top 5 best striker, dude was so solid, too bad he quit the game.

I for some reason really respect this guy and like his fights.

5 fav Japanese dudes.

1. Kazushi Sakuraba.

The man who made me love Pride. He went from pro-wrestling to subbing blackbelts. Word to that. He's been in some awesome fights and was ground breaking. A true legend.

2. Rumina Sato.

The man. The Saku of Shooto. He was a little dude, who was way ahead of his time. Not only did he sub fools, but he wasn't afraid to strike. One of my all-time favorites.

3. Hidehiko Yoshida.

The Yoda of MMA. He gives me a judo boner.

4. Shinya Aoki.

banana pants, baby, banana pants.

5. Gomi.

Looks kind of like a chick, kicks ass like a super dude. He likes to punch fools in the face.

5 fav Brazilian dudes.

1. Big Nog.

The man, the myth, the legend.

2. Lyoto Machida.

He makes his opponents look stupid and pisses off impatient fans. I love the guy.

3. Rogerio Nog.

Best stand-up in the 205 division not named Lyoto Machida. Sick BJJ, too. Get thee to the UFC already.

4. Buscape.

Still holding out hope for the guy. Damn you, Kawajiri, damn you!

5. Wanderlei Silva.

I probably should have him at number 3, but these aren't necessarily in order. Wandy is a manly man. He kills people to entertain himself. It's not a Wanderlei fight without violence. He'll give you violence every time he fights.

5 fav Euro fighters.

1. Bas Rutten.

The greatest fighter ever.

2. Fedor.

Looks like a chef, kicks ass like a bulldozer.

3. Sergei.

Still holding out hope for the red undies.

4. Aleks.

Has a mullet, looks like he hasn't bathed in a week.

5. Volk Han.

The king of leg-locks.

5 fav American dudes.

1. Frank Shamrock.

Has nice hair, nice abs and kicks ass.

2. Matt Hughes.

One of the greatest fighters ever.

3. Guy mezger.

Great hair, great stand-up, great personality.

4. Don Frye.

I'd so ride his 'stache.

5. Nate Marquardt.

I'm drawing a blank and needed to pick someone.

Genki and Bas I would have put in.

Paul Daley is back btw. I knew him supposedly "retiring" wouldn't last long. I think it was after the Che Mills fight at Cage Rage 26, he came out and started being himself, so look for that fight next for Daley.

EDIT: Ross Pointon was a bit of a joke, so I'll have Daley in there aswell. Looking forward to him hopefully leaving Cage Rage and continuing with Elite XC.

the above is a gem.
The following are in no particular order. Just group em by weight class, I realize most of my favorite fighters are HWs for some reason. Prolly because it's interesting to see some huge knuckle-dragger turn into a graceful wrecking ball in the octagon.

Randy Couture - classy in victory and defeat. And he spanked Tito. Can make a frumpy suit look pimptastic.
Spencer Fisher - little ass kicking action figure come to life.
Fedor - a russian bear who could submit a russian bear of the bear variety.
Looks like a chef lol! somebody else said he looks like a gym teacher, we need a thread "What profession Fedor looks like he's in" Our local paper said that in the coming year Russian will be one of the most important languages to learn, he's one of the reasons why. (The other ones are arlovski, taktarov, kharitonov, etc. etc.)
Cro Cop - Like Damone, I still hope and wait for the old Cro Cop.
Bas - and you thought the Dutch were a mellow, picture-painting, tulip-growing, hash-smoking bunch. I especially like angry Bas with the mustache. Gives TKD practitioners like myself hope that with the proper tweaks to our art, we can learn to kick ass also.
Lyoto Machida - He's so elusive. Did I remember to
say he's elusive?
Andrei Arlovski - He runs around in the woods at night howling, mauling and competing with Jon Fitch for prey.
GSP - One word: Riddim.
Clay Guida - never disappoints.
More later.

Like Damone? Or like me?:thumb02:

swpthleg 05-30-2008 10:37 PM

Like you, Damone, and many, many others who light a freaking candle for the return of the old Cro Cop, whether we're Catholic or not.

Oh, I forgot to say Joe Daddy, at either weight. he is a beast and his cannonball into the pool and subsequent mostly one-sided drunken conversation with Jorge Gurgel is one of my favorite TUF moments, for some reason.

I need a picture of the absurd sounding banana pants.

banana pants

swpthleg 05-30-2008 10:51 PM

o....m.....g........must.....possess.....aoki..... .banana........pants

must....go......must......buy

I think these pants may have the power of the Shamrock sideburns or the Frye mustache, or the Wandy training snorkel.

They actually have the power of a Rob Emerson leg kick.

Who am I kidding?
