I'm a huge Bas fan. The guy was way ahead of his time, and was, at one point, the greatest fighter ever.
You really can't get any better than Frank Shamrock vs Bas Rutten(Pick any of them), Bas Rutten vs Jason Delucia(Any of them), and vs Minoru Suzuki(Again, pick any of them).
The Delucia fights made you realize how scary Bas was. My heart goes out to Delucia's liver.
Charisma, skill, & presence all represent Bas. Really, I'd go as far as to say he's the greatest fighter to ever represent MMA. My all time favorite is Frank Shamrock, but he really doesn't compare to El Guapo.
Ok, that's enough of my Bas fanboy-ism.
