The only guy that could think of is Nogueira with all the beatings he has taken and overcome and the beatings that he took from Fedor and never quit. But then I still don't even know how close he comes when you compare him to Andy.
So I ask my fellow K-1 junkies, is there anyone you can think of that comes close to Andy?
I think you know very well no one has come close to the amount of heart, skill and dedication to this sport than Hug. But yeah, Nog would be closest for me as well.

Are you serious? Couture's never been in the same kind of fights as Nog. He's never had to rely on heart and overcome disadvantages. Plus, with the way he's been acting lately, I really question his dedication to the sport.
