I love fighters who seek to challenge themselves such as Penn and Anderson. I feel that they deserve the utmost respect for trying to prove that they are the very best in the world. They want to cement a legacy, to show that they one are of the greatest of all time, and that is what a real fighter is to me.

I like to see fighters take on challenges. I think It's Great that BJ has fought at LHW and at LW, dudes a warrior imo.

I Love the fact that old man Anderson Silva has fought at WW and LHW. In fact, he might go from LHW to WW back to MW. I mean that's just crazy for a guy pushing 38.

Chael Sonnen comes to my head. I've heard him challenge anyone from GSP to Silva to Jon Jones. Heck, the guy is crazy enough to fight JDS most likely.

I love fighters who bounce around and take high risk low reward fights.

Well on what we were talking about, this thread kind of shows you what I meant. If anything, people have MORE respect for BJ because he stepped up for the big fight over GSP. The only reason BJ doesnt get the respect is because he's still active. He's had a string of bad results at both LW and WW since then and he's a big underdog against an up and comer like Rory so he can be short for praise at this moment in time, but as soon as he hangs it up he should be a shoe in for that HOF spot.

I just don't respect him for not giving it his all the last few years. Why go up to 170 and fight top fighters if you aren't going to come in ready? Other than HWs, I haven't seen anyone with the gassing issues he has had at 170. But I like the way he fights. And I loved him at 155.


If he finds some sort of desire to train for real again. He should go back to 155. He can't be taking on wrestlers who can smother him or a guy like Nick Diaz.

Yeah if I was picking a fight for BJ it would be a normal enough boxer/kickboxer or a submission fighter. Against Diaz, that cardio is no doubt going to be exposed with Diaz' crazy pace and body shots, and if he fights Rory then he'll be taken down quite a lot. He could use a few top fighters that kind of fit his ideal style to see if he has his best days still in him.

I'm a fan of Keith Hackney for slaying the 500lb sumo, Fry for beating Goodridge + Tank, Frank winning a long hard fought battle against Tito, Marcos Ruas chopping down the Polar Bear, and of course Vitor smashing Ferozzo and Tank. In the first fight there were no gloves. The size differential was astronomical.

Oh and Mad Dog fighting valiantly against Dan Severn. Sadly he got suplexed to death. Total mismatch. That was a one of a kind fight card; David vs Goliath.

Remember Tuli getting his tooth knocked out in UFC 1? In kind of a reversal of what we are talking about here, although Tuli was a lot heavier then the dutch guy Gordeau was known as an absolute killer and feared around the world. Tuli had some nerve getting in the ring with him despite the weight advantage

I actually respect them all pretty much equally. Bumping up a weight class definitely deserves respect, regardless of the outcome. Huge props. However, it's not for everyone, as everyone has different "physicalities", and/or different philosophies about how to do it. (just quickly packing on a bit of fat vs. building lean muscle & letting your body adapt, cardio considerations, etc.) I take it on a case-by-case basis.

Made me think - I actually do get bothered by fighters who fight at a weight class that (in my mind) is sub-optimal for them. (Big Country & later-career Fedor come to mind)

Fun thread. :]

The way this started was me and Toxic discussing if it was a good idea for GSP to move up to the catchweight to fight Silva. What do you guys think?

Catchweight is a bit of a cop out for both of them. Titles need to be on the line!
