English P4P

I know I only ever to seem to make threads about English fighters, sorry; but here is another, inspired by the latest ESPN UK UFC podcast, always worth a listen imo. http://www.espn.co.uk/UFC/sport/story/116890.html What are your top ten English fighters? Other nationalities can join in with their countrymen or do one for us Brits too.


Number ten: Tom 'Kong' Watson


Kong is 11-1 in his last 12 fights scoring victories over notables John Maguire and 'Ninja' Rua. Know for a fierce muay thai style but with improving takedown defence too.



Number nine: Jimi 'The Poster Boy' Manuwa


Undefeated UCMMA champion who holds his biggest win over Valentino Petrescu. I think he could leave an impression in the UFC but has aparently declined three contract offers, most recently to fight on UFC 138 in Birmingum.



Number eight: Terry Etim


After a lackluster start in the UFC Etim strung together an impressive streak of four straight wins incuding that of Sam Stout. Etim then lost to Dos Anjos but many people belive he would have won if he didn't gas himself out trying to finish with the armbar. Returns at 138 after over a year injured, could be a future contender.



Number seven: 'Relentless' Paul Taylor


A far better fighter then his record sugests many belive Taylor should have earned the nod over Chris Lytle and Marcus Davies and lost a close split decision to Sam Stout. His fight with Paul Kelly sums up his attitude, he always brings it.

SOMEONE MAKE THIS GUY A HL REEL!!!!!

Number six: Dan 'The Outlaw' Hardy


Oh how the mighty have fallen. A sublime four fight streak gave 'The Outlaw' a somewhat undeserved title shot, nonetheless he was the first Englishman to achive the feat. Now on a four fight loss streak Hardy needs to stop moaning about being taken down and learn some takedown defense.



Number five: John 'The Hitman' Hathaway


A young fighter who set the octogon alight with wins over Paul Taylor, Rick Story and a 30-26 victory over Diago Sanchez. He rebounded from his first loss with a close victory over Mckray. Now with personal problems behind him he can get back into rhythm. Unfortunatly he had to withdraw from UFC 138 because of injury. On MMAFighting.com's ton ten welterweights.



Number four: Ross 'The Real Deal' Pearson


Winner of TUF with wins over many notable lightweights. I alsp belive he won the Edson Barboza fight. Now cutting weight to 145 I think he will earn a title shot but loose out to Aldo.



Number three: Paul 'Semtex' Daley


Explosive welterweight (barely) who's only losses come to wrestling specialists (exc. Diaz)and he has shown improvement in this area in recent fights including a victory over Radev. If he takes the Marquardt fight on BAMMA 8 and wins he will be back in the top ten WWs for me.



Number two: Micheal 'The Count' Bisping


A hugley impressive record that lacks only victories over top five middleweights. This record includes a split decision loss (that in my opinion he won) against Evans and a close decision to Wanderlei Silva, however this is kind of evened up against Matt Hammil. Certainly only two victories away from a title fight, weather that would be against Silva or not we shall see.



Number one: Brad 'One Punch' Pickett


Hugely underestimated fighter, if he gets past Renan Barao he definatly deserves a title shot, he destroyed Demetrious Johnson in their match and could give Cruz some real problems. Most likley to become first British title holder.















And remember Britain's got talent -_-

He is. But he was born in England, so he gets claimed by the English a lot.
