For me no not really. Mixed martial arts doesn't inspire me in any way its just fun to watch lol. Well, maybe its taught me a few techniques but no fighter has ever been my idol or inspired me. Maybe Bas Rutten but thats about it. Anyone else?

Well what inspired me to join wrestling was watching Matt hughes and Tito dominate in the late 90's early 2000'a... i loved their styles , they are my 2 all time favourites still to this day.

Matt Hughes didn't start to dominate until after that loss to Dennis Hallmas which was about 2001. He didn't start dominating until then. But Tito hes dominated ever since he joined UFC. He also has the best cardio and endurance. Thats why once he is done he is going to be inducted into the hall of fame for sure. I'm inspired by Tito too and his trash talking. Hes so good at it.

hehe of course , if he came back to the ufc he would be like the matt hughes of the middleweight/light heavyweight division. i would love to see him dominate ace, the crow, liddell, babalu, tito once again oh goshh i can see it now. lol but i heard he wants to fight sakuraba in pride. hopefully it happens.

I wouldn't say that any fighter is my idol or has inspired me to fight, although I agree with jdun11 about the Rocky movies. If I could train under a fighter it would be CroCop to work on my stand-up game and Matt Hughes for ground and pound, which probably suits me more.

He lost to Frank Shamrock BECAUSE of his cardio.

Ken and Frank Shamrock have inspired me. I wouldn't say like Idols but I'd call them my MMA Idols.

well one who has inspired me though he was not an MMA fighter in the current sense of the word he was a pioneer of mixing martial arts together to create something better is Bruce Lee. and not just for that but for his work ethic and attitue that everyone should have training avialable to them if they want it. he is mainly the reason Martial arts in general is as popular as it is today.

frank is fighting sakuraba?? i thought he was fighting baroni? and whoever said he'd dominate ace chuck and tito is stupid, a young raw tito dominated most of their fight till he gassed, chuck would knock franks head off because frank couldnt take him down, and i think ace would beat him too..not to take anything away from him beacause hes an all time great, but u just named great fighters from today that are bigger and just as talented..

yep...Lee was an amazing individual...his philosophy, he's work ethic, and his skills where amazing...
he is definitly one of my biggest role models....

as for MMA its Bas Rutten...started out late due to sickness as a child and parental disaproval and made it to be known as one of the best martial artists ever...

in boxing its Sugar Ray Robinson and Bernard Hopkins...Robinson for his brilliance inside the ring (pure genius) and Hops for improving his skill with time....

Matt Hughes has inspired and been a role model to me as a person and a rookie fighter/wrestler. He is a man and fighter of morales and that means alot in this day and time. He was one of the first fights i had ever seen ( i was amazed!). I did a little research on him and from then on i was hooked on UFC and watching him. He is THE MAN! Rich Franklin is another one I like he is the same a man of Morales.
