Which fighter can you not help but to root for?

Which fighter(s) can you guys not help but to root for? The one fighter who for some unexplainable reason you want to win the fight.

For me:

Stephan Bonnar
Chris Leben
Clay Guida
Shane Carwin
Kurt Pelligrino

and last... jon jones. The kid has class and a good personality. I hope he succeeds for many years to come.


Brad Tavares
Dennis Siver
Edson Barboza
Maiquel Falcao

Matt Hammill is the first that comes to mind.

BJ Penn, Matt Mitrione, and JDS due to their awesome personalities.

And lots of wrasslers who get lots of hate because, while I understand the non-excitement thing, I don't get why people can't appreciate the fact that they are superior in an aspect of MMA. (See: Fitch, Jon)

I'm probably one of the last of em, CROCOP of old. A few on the list I agree with. Guess any old schoolers; Wand, Tito even. They're at the twilight of their careers and if they can win one and ride out into the sunset then why not. Who wants to go out the way Chuck did although he did go out on his shield...but damn...at least go out Randy Couture style with an incredible high light reel kick. Come to think of it all the legends have been getting KOed left and right; Mirko and even Big Nog.

Not being funny but how is this different than asking who your favourite fighter's are? If you want that fighter to win, then it's more than likely that you're a fan of them, init?

But in the spirit of the thread..these guys aren't necessary my favourites, but I do like them and often find myself rooting for them come their fight night, which I am assuming what this thread is all about.

Wanderlei Silva
Diego Sanchez
Chris Lytle
Josh Koscheck
Damien Maia
Rob Brougton
