well one who has inspired me though he was not an MMA fighter in the current sense of the word he was a pioneer of mixing martial arts together to create something better is Bruce Lee. and not just for that but for his work ethic and attitue that everyone should have training avialable to them if they want it. he is mainly the reason Martial arts in general is as popular as it is today.

frank is fighting sakuraba?? i thought he was fighting baroni? and whoever said he'd dominate ace chuck and tito is stupid, a young raw tito dominated most of their fight till he gassed, chuck would knock franks head off because frank couldnt take him down, and i think ace would beat him too..not to take anything away from him beacause hes an all time great, but u just named great fighters from today that are bigger and just as talented..

yep...Lee was an amazing individual...his philosophy, he's work ethic, and his skills where amazing...
he is definitly one of my biggest role models....

as for MMA its Bas Rutten...started out late due to sickness as a child and parental disaproval and made it to be known as one of the best martial artists ever...

in boxing its Sugar Ray Robinson and Bernard Hopkins...Robinson for his brilliance inside the ring (pure genius) and Hops for improving his skill with time....

Matt Hughes has inspired and been a role model to me as a person and a rookie fighter/wrestler. He is a man and fighter of morales and that means alot in this day and time. He was one of the first fights i had ever seen ( i was amazed!). I did a little research on him and from then on i was hooked on UFC and watching him. He is THE MAN! Rich Franklin is another one I like he is the same a man of Morales.

Romans 14:11-12... 11It is written: " 'As surely as I live, says the Lord ' every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' " 12So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. May God Bless us all.www.mmaworld.org
