Your favourite aspect of MMA?

What is your favourite aspect of MMA? What would be your facourite match-up?

A technical match of BJJ? Imagine Almeida vs Maia? That would be a sick match, sweet subs...

Stand up war? Thiago Silva vs Lyoto Machida? KO's could come from no-where, or a sweet technical fight, one trying to pick the other a part...

Or a wrestling fight, one guy trying to take down and control the other, Sherk vs Griffin comes to mind?

I personally, love a great BJJ match, I would love to see Maia vs Almeida that would be sweet, mind/technique would win the fight, not strength...

standup wars are pretty great, but I think my all time favorites are when someone gets out of a difficult submission hold and knocks the other dude.

I love the skill involved in a great ground fight...specifically when there are tons of BJJ transitions and attempts and what not.

Judo is the coolest art in Mixed Martial Arts. Seriously, I'd rather watch 2 great judoka's fight then anything else (MMA related, of course).

My thoughts exactly!

Even though it as fun to watch a good slugfest with some skilled strikers...not a lot of the sloppy stuff that gets thrown around, couple of SKILLED strikers.

I voted stand-up. I just love Mui Tai flashing strikes. Spinning back fists, flying knees. Superman punches and spinning back kicks. Not to mention brutal standing KO's...

I love all aspects of MMA. It's the technicality of all the areas that makes the sport exciting. Most of the fans would just prefer to see nothing but standup throughout the match because they don't appreciate the technical aspect of "the clinch" and "grappling".
