Has any fighter ever inspired you or been your idol?
 
For me no not really. Mixed martial arts doesn't inspire me in any way its just fun to watch lol. Well, maybe its taught me a few techniques but no fighter has ever been my idol or inspired me. Maybe Bas Rutten but thats about it. Anyone else?

Not Any Mma Fighter Really, Maybe Tito, Cuz Of His Work Ethic..but As Stupid As This Sounds I Cant Watch A Rocky Movie Without Being Inspired..you Cant Tell Me That When U Watch Rocky Movies, Your Juices Dont Get Flowin And Watchin Him Train Like An Animal..i Dunno Man, I Use It As An Inspiration Because I Bet There Are Alot Of Real Fighters Just Like That And It Pushes Me To Push Myself To The Max..

I personally like sean sherk alot. I donno if i'd call him an Idol, but he's definetaly the guy id most like to train with and train under.

Well what inspired me to join wrestling was watching Matt hughes and Tito dominate in the late 90's early 2000'a... i loved their styles , they are my 2 all time favourites still to this day.

Matt Hughes didn't start to dominate until after that loss to Dennis Hallmas which was about 2001. He didn't start dominating until then. But Tito hes dominated ever since he joined UFC. He also has the best cardio and endurance. Thats why once he is done he is going to be inducted into the hall of fame for sure. I'm inspired by Tito too and his trash talking. Hes so good at it.

hehe of course , if he came back to the ufc he would be like the matt hughes of the middleweight/light heavyweight division. i would love to see him dominate ace, the crow, liddell, babalu, tito once again oh goshh i can see it now. lol but i heard he wants to fight sakuraba in pride. hopefully it happens.

I wouldn't say that any fighter is my idol or has inspired me to fight, although I agree with jdun11 about the Rocky movies. If I could train under a fighter it would be CroCop to work on my stand-up game and Matt Hughes for ground and pound, which probably suits me more.

lol tito didn't dominate when he started and he didn't have great cardio either.

Jesus get off the mans ****.

He lost to Frank Shamrock BECAUSE of his cardio.
