spur of the moment is one thing but continuing to do so is quite another.

Machida/Couture was a bitter pill to swallow. So wanted him to bow out on a win.

Really was better that way. Imagine if Machida lost? From the unbeatable LHW champion, who even ushered in "The Machida Era", to losing to Shogun, Rampage and Couture, three washed up ex-elite MMA fighters. That probably would have been the end of the Dragon right there.

The Rock out-Scorpion Kings his extra-character in the Expendables ass any day.

But really, Toney would have knocked him into Kim Coutures bed if he had the cajones to stand up with him.

Franklin vs Silva 1 for me also. I followed MMA before that but was young and naive like thinking the Gracies would beat anyone bar Franklin/Liddell who were my favorite fighters. That is still to this day my biggest shock watching Franklin in the MT clinch against some random guy who destroyed Leben.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

Why on earth would Randy Couture stand with a professional boxer?

I think ive been pretty lucky. I wanted Bisping to win but Hendo was clearly the better fighter and deserved it

And I thought Bisping beat Sonnen but that was fairly close

Machida losing to Shogun wasnt that fun but i dont mind Shogun so that helped


Nick Diaz losing to Condit sucked, and Daley losing to Koscheck

Actually im usually bummed by the manner of the defeat e.g. my fighter being held down without much offense from guy on top


edit: oh yeh! fedors losses!

Favourite Fighters
Anderson Silva
Mark Hunt
Bisping
Fedor
Machida
Pettis
Aldo
McGregor
'John' Wayne Parr
Nathan 'Carnage' Corbett
Bruce Lee

I wouldn't say Machida is my favorarite fighter, but when Shogun KO'd Machida, I found it to be pretty shocking as I thought Machida with his elusive style was going to run the table as LHW for years to come. A striking moment of reality when a fighter with that Goldan unbeatable aura gets knocked out
