good reasons, tito= well respected, great guy

J kos for respect, he started as a wrestler and now is a beast

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

I was impressed by Titos ability to train other people at TUF.
I was impressed by Rich F. for not having a bunch of excuses for his loss to Anderson Silva.
I even gained some respect for Shonie Carter. During most of the season of TUF I thought he was just a show stealing douche. But during his pre Matt Sera fight interview he actualy sounded humble and hungry for respect, and I thought he had good fight too.

I've always liked Franklin but I definitely have gained more respect for him as well, he took his loss like a man and did not make nay excuses.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

For real though. Tito is a jackass. He obviously cannot help it.

Franklin impressed me with his unwillingness to make excuses for the loss.

Griffin always impresses me with everything he does, he is just a quality person.

Fedor impressed me because he refuses to lose, which I love. I will order every Fedor PPV from now until he loses, he is just that fun to watch.

Bj Penn...for whooping hughes ass again then getting injured and not making excuses.

Chuck...for being so damn good.

Kenflo...raised it a notch against sherk and hung in there 4 5 rnds.

Rich...For losing gracefully

Diego Sanchez - I still think he lost the first 2 rounds but he tore Karo up in the 3rd and that was impressive even though Karo got poked in the eye. He was relentless in his attack and I thought he might end the fight then and there.

Rashad Evans - Finally finished a fight and against a formiddable opponent too

Basically everyone else mentioned except not so much for Tito and KenFlo and Matt Hughes. Matt Hughes was really only "supposed to lose" one time and that was against BJ. Everyone knew he was too powerful for Royce, everyone knew Joe Riggs wasn't championship material at the time, everyone knows Frank Trigg is not as good as he lets on, everyone knows GSP was not as complete of a fighter at the time and somewhat inexperienced. I think Matt Hughes is always "supposed to win" really. But I didn't gain any more respect for him and I didn't lose any so there's my

Amen

Tito should not disrespect the people that built the organization he now gets his paycheck from. Tito is overrated anyways.

Josk Koscheck has really seemed to step it up a notch, most noteably in his recent win over Jonathan Goulet. After this, I hope he starts getting some tougher opponents that will test him a bit. Goulet seemed outmatched the whole time, but so far the new Koscheck has impressed me.

Diego Sanchez has turned into one of my favorite fighters to watch, just based on his last two performances only. I think he's really going to work to improve his stand-up, and we'll see an even better Diego throughout 2007.

Georges St. Pierre has obviously won me over the most. He's my favorite fighter, he's an incredible athlete and he's gonna look good as the Welterweight Champion.
