MMA FORUM Fan Favourite Fighter! (third Fight)

Alright folks so im goin to be running a 16 man tournament to find out who indeed is the most beloved fighter on MMA Forum.

Im going to go through a few things before I get the first match underway:

1. The list was what I personally thought are some of the most loved fighters around, you may not agree with all on the list and thats fine, but im sure you'll find at least a couple of your fav fighters out of the 16 I've chosen.

2. This has been approved to be in the UFC section even though there will be several non-UFC fighters.

3. This is suppose to be fun, so keep it light and share your thoughts, and make sure to vote for your favourite out of the 2.

4. This is to find out the fan favourite, not who would win in a fight (although I did look at some of the matchups and went "hmmm...")

Lets get this 3rd matchup up and running!


Why he is beloved: Not so long ago considered the top LHW of the world. A well rounded fighter with all the skills to become a UFC LHW champ. Aggressive style makes him very exciting to watch, and he is a good looking cat to boot!

Aleks Emelianenko:

Why he is beloved: Widely considered one of the top 10 hw in the world. Has impressive KO power and is one of the scariest lookin dudes you will ever come across. Many of us (including myself) would love nothing more than this guy to make his mark in the UFC at somepoint.

This will be a tough one guys, but when ya have to narrow it to 16, your only gonna get contenders!

Here is the brackets so far, winners are in bold:

Forrest Griffin


Aleks Emelianenko


Anderson Silva

Voted Shogun, I'll be surprised if he loses this. Aleks is a bad ass though.

I voted for Aleks because I felt like this will be a runaway and never really loved Shogun or Aleks

I voted for Shogun Rua. I hope he comes back at 100 percent. This guy is capable of cleaning out a division.

Shogun should handle Aleks E in this even though Aleks is probably the scariest man fighting if not he's number 2 behind Cyborg.

I like Aleks E. a lot but of course I'm voting for Shogun the guy is just an exciting fighter win, lose, or broken arm

I love both dudes, but I love Aleks more (especially after the Moraes fight). Plus, Shogun should be fine without my vote.

I'm a Chute Boxe fanboi, but I have to choose Aleks. How can you not like a guy who rocks a mullet looks like he just woke up two mins before the fight and then proceeds to beat ten shades of crap outta people.

Fav. Fighters
Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva
Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira
Ken "You got kicked. By a kick." Shamrock

WAR The CroCop!

I could care less = you care

I couldn't care less = you don't care

Seems as if the Shogun fans have came out of hibernation! Where is Wukka at? I know he is a big Aleks E fan.

Possibly the sickest tattoo in all of mma...

Shogun in one of his epic fights...this against lil'nog
