Who has really gained your respect?

I was just wondering who has gained your respect lately either by their fighting ability or some other action or words. Tito Ortiz gained alot of my respect by the way he handled himself on the TUF show and after the second fight with Shamrock, I thought he showed alot of class both times.

brace yourself, you just put yourself out there for all the shamrock fans to reign down there verbal assault on you. alot of people thought he was only semi-respectful after the last match. i agree he did a great job coaching though, i was really impressed.

as far as the topic goes though i gotta say the lauzon bros. joe for obvious reasons, and dan for taking a fight on two weeks notice with one of the best lw's the ufc has right now, and doing really well until he gassed. it looked to me like he had a decent shot at winning that fight if he had time to prepare. spencer really can turn it up a notch once he gets going though so who knows. nevertheless i was really impressed with the two of them and look forward to seeing them both fight in the future.

Titos always been one of my favorite fighters but TUF 3 really put him over the top for me. He was just great. He showed great maturity and proved to be a great coach. He's my favorite fighter now. It's gonna be hard for me to see him beat down Chuck though cuz Chucks probably my second favorite.

As far as respect goes, Ed Herman got more respect from me after his loss in his last fight. He was man enough to admit that he basically didn't do his best and just sucked. Takes a lot to admit that.

I had more respect for him after that. I wonder if he still thinks he can beat Tito.

I have for Rich Franklin Since he fought A Silva he allways seemed a bit cocky but it was good to see him get KO'd and he showed alot of respect to Silva. Forrest has gained mine for the good performance he put on against Tito. I hate to say this thought i never would but Tito has he was good at the TUF and if he beats lidell ill think hes as good as you tito fans do i kind of lost respect for Shamrock over the last few years.
and all my respect goes out to Frank Mir who is back from that horrible accident if he can get back into shape will be awesome

Haha, yeaaa....I thought he was a little bit disrespectful in the 3rd fight....just a little Selling shirts during Ken's retirement speech, no, that's not disrespectful. Interrupting Ken during his retirement speech, no, not a biggie. Flipping Ken off after he won....ha...so what? Tito was nothing but class that night and deserves nothing but respect in return.

A few ppl

Forrest Griffin for hanging in there with a vet and one of the most dominant champions in UFC history Tito Ortiz, he did very well, bad knee or not, he showed tremendous heart by eating alll those elbows and still coming back for more. Forrest is a Warrrior. Much respect

Josh Koscheck: Whether i hate him or not, hes gained alot fo respect from me, by showing sooo much improvement in his last couple of fights,this is a man who came into MMA with strictly WRESTLING, nothing else, but now hes training very hard on his standup and JJ and can be a force in the future

Chris Lytle: I have always liked this guy , but watching him on TUF show, hes a very cool guy, kinda sticks to himself and focuses on what he came there to do, trains very hard , hes a deteremined guy , and i cant wait to see him win that contract and get a shot at the title.

Matt Serra: Basically for the same reasons as Lytle, i like his work ethic and leadership , standup for what he believes in , and i loved the way he put Laimon in his place

I gotta agree with the above quote and also and Jon Fitch. I heard he was a bad ass and he showed it in his first televised fight. Looking forward to Chris Lyttle earning even more of my respect this weekend!
