I just was browsing through the site's rankings and noticed a new #1. It's always been GSP or Anderson or JDS or Bones lately so it was surprising. Of course this changes daily, but these are the consensus top favorite fighters of the PG at the moment.

1) Dan Henderson
2) Jon Jones
3) Junior Dos Santos
4) GSP
5) Anderson Silva
6) Nick Diaz
7) Jose Aldo
8) Chael Sonnen
9) Wanderlei Silva
10) Lyoto Machida
Honorable Mentions: Nate Diaz, Chang Sung Jung, Carlos Condit

Hendo deserves more due than he gets. Opponent-wise he is the GOAT.

Current PG list.
#1 Dan Henderson
#2 Jon Jones
#3 Junior Dos Santos
#4 Georges St. Pierre
#5 Anderson Silva
#6 Chael Sonnen
#7 Jose Aldo
#8 Nick Diaz
#9 Chan Sung Jung
#10 Wanderlei Silva
Honorable mention: Lyoto Machida, Nate Diaz, BJ Penn



Personal list:

Randy Couture- For coming out of retirement and whooping Timmay

Don Frye- Tough SOB, entertaining as hell

Jake Ellenberger- Hits like a truck, always aggressive,

Anderson Silva- Beautiful to watch (when he's on point)

Jose Aldo- SO FAST! Lightning in his veins and dynamite in his limbs

Jon Jones- So creative

Chan Sung Jung- Aggressive, does not quit, has great nickname, awesome walkout

Hatsu Hioki- High fight IQ and eloquent grappling (although imo he showed very low IQ in his last fight)

Tim Boetsch- Has some really fun signature moments, brutal attacking style

Dominick Cruz- His style perplexes me, I don't usually like point fighters but Cruz has a fascinating striking style imo

My racist ass top ten favorites:

Brandon Saling
Dan Henderson
Martin Kampmann
Dan Miller
Jim Miller
James Irvin
Jeff Monson
Alexander Gustafsson
Jon Olav Einemo
Michael McDonald

That's the order I have them listed, but it's hard to say I like one of these guys more than the other. There are so many awesome, exciting fighters out there these days, especially the white wrestlers!!!







Totally a joke, btw. My real list is Nick and Nate Diaz, Hendo, Kampmann, Aldo, Machida, Anderson Silva, Chan Sung Jung, Dan Miller and Gustafsson. I was not joking though about how hard it is to put them in any kind of order.

Like others have said, I truly am shocked Jones is in the top 3. I think some are mistaking best for favorite.

Jones is probably my favorite fighter to watch. I know everyone loves to hate on the geat ones, but if you can't appreciate the way Bones does his thing.... Haters gonna hate I guess... Jordan had his haters too

I don't like Jones, in fact I think he's fake as shit, but that doesn't mean I don't like watching him fight and that doesn't mean I don't pick him to win. It's simply an attitude thing for me. It's also well within our right to hate on ANYBODY we want. I'm sure all of us have THAT guy we can't stand.
