No, no, no.

Even when Timmy is fighting well, he looks like shit. His style is horrendously unattractive. His posture. The way he plods forward... dragging one of his zombie legs behind him. His cumbersome punching style. The way his flab hangs over his shorts and wobbles around every time he takes a step. All of it = horrible.

He belongs in the history books. Piss off Timmy you fat wanker.

Arlovski on the other hand was pretty close I imagine until he somehow lost to AJ.

Fighters I'd like to see back in the Octagon someday.

Huerta
Crocop
Junie Browning (although no longer UFC material his crazy antics cracked me up)
Jens Pulver (give the dude one satisfying win w/ fight bonus so he can retire gracefully.)
Brock for sure cuz he's just entertaining.
Kid Yamamoto (have no idea what happened to this guy when he came into the US market.)

Frank Shamrock several years back. I would have liked to see him vs GSP. He was bad ass back in the day!
Why was Huerta cut back in the day? He was 6-2 and a legitimate contender at one point. Did losing a split decision to Maynard really hurt him that much, or was there something else going on between him and UFC management?

From what I remember he had planned on starting an acting career and the Maynard fight was just the last one on his contract. So basically he just didn't renew his contract, then when he got back into MMA he got offers from Bellator and Strikeforce.

The UFC is obviously setting up a rematch with Vera. I don't know how any can miss the signs.

See below. He was up there in contender status. First MMA fighter on Sports Illustrated and was going out with Arianny Celeste too I think. Actually now I remember, it was about the $50 per diem among other issues.

This and I "think" Huerta might have said something in terms of pay or whatever that rubbed the suits the wrong way.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
