The last time I had a "favourite fighter", I was in my teens, and he lost to a cheating, pillow-fisted pretty boy named Ray Leonard.

When Coleman lost to Shogun. The old warhorse was very close to eeking out a decision after winning the first two rounds. In the third round the ref stood them up when he just should have reset the position on the ground where coleman was able to limit the damage. Soon as he stood up shogun came in and finished it. Would have been an epic win for the king of being gassed out!

These fights are a touch older but it was really hard for me to see Wandy loose to Chuck, and it was also painful to see him loose to Rampage. In the rampage fight he held his own for a bit and looked good until hitting the canvas.

I also hated seeing Karo's downfall after being put on hold for a well earned title shot. He was an exciting fighter in his day.

Oh and Lyoto loosing to Shogun blew my mind, I still don't understand that.

1. Chuck losing to Rashad. That was at the peak of my Rashad hate and Chuck is my all time favorite fighter.

2. Diaz vs Condit- I didn't agree with decision and that kind of game plan being rewarded the way it was just sent me into a rage. He literally turned away and ran at points in the fight.

3. Brock landing a lucky punch to the back of the ear of Randy Couture. Randy would have won that fight, no doubt in my mind and he would have won any rematch.

4. Both Nog loses to Mir. Mir is a major douche and Nog is one of the easiest guys to root for in the sport.

5. Nate Diaz losing to Gray Maynard- that was another BS decision. It was a SD but should have been a UD in favor of Diaz who did far more to win that fight.

I'd have no problem with any of Nate's old fights. Before the Gomi fight I was barley a fan. He always had weaker striking than Nick and would allow himself to get easily wrestled. Now that his striking is top notch, he can keep his opponents on the back foot and batter him like Nick does.

I dunno, he did some nice damage to Maynard. I think that was the fight where his pitter pat punches started to pack some sting. He messed Gray up pretty good that fight and Gray didn't do shit to Nate except control positioning for part of the fight. Nate did far more to earn the win.

Yeah he was always a very good striker, but now he's one of the best and it changes everything. He would probably break Gray into pieces in a UD win now.
