Who is the most exciting fighter to watch in mma?
Cant forget Kendall Grove....He will be Future Top Middleweight contender soon IMO..and very entertaining to watch
The reason that i chose Wandy is because he always aims for the knockout, no matter if he is outclassed in the striking department, hes always said he fights for the fans and wants to make the fight as exciting as he can.
Another vote for Wanderlei. Watching him fight is extremely intense and you are always in for a good show. It starts at the stare down and lasts the entire fight.
Of the list above,i went with Georges St. Pierre.If anyone was going to beat Matt Hughes for the belt,i am glad he did.He is always exciting and it's hard to pin point a weakness.
But to be honest,for me the most exciting fighter around is Alistair Overeem.He is always exciting in fights.If it wasn't for his sick ability to gas near the end of fights he looks to have won.He might be at the top of his weight class.But as exciting fighters go,none more so than the Demolition man.
GSP... most entertaining fighter ever
Top 6 Favorite Fighters
1) Robert Emerson
2) B.J. "The Prodigy" Penn
3) Corey Hill
4) Nick "Diablo" Diaz
5) Randy "The Natural" Couture
6) Tito Ortiz
For that list it was between GSP & Wandy, but I gave it to Wandy since he has those Vicious knees....
But for all MMA, I'd go with Rampage because he's a brawler and his slams are ******' amazing....
2nd I'd go with Shogun just for his ability to just completely run over his opponets...
if I had to chose a top 3 then 3rd would be Anderson Silva...He has vicous knees too and his accuracy is just amzing but if it goes to the ground then he wouldn't make the top 3 just because his BJJ is overated...
I wen't with Mirko, I love kickboxing, and I love kicking, punching all of that so thats why. I also love watching wandy because his fights end in KO's.
2. St Pierre
I thought Rampage would be up there... i picked cro cop tho...
Nothing better than the huge rampage slam!!!!
Karo Parysian. his judo throws come out of knowhere and are exciting as hell. i picked melvin though because whether hes winnin or losing its excitin as hell, rick davis, josh neer, joe stevenson, gabe rudiger.
I f it's a current relevant fighter I'll take Fedor. He's explosive on the feet , ground, and with subs.
shogun is the best to watch
This list is garbage. Shogun, Anderson Silva, and Fedor would be my top 3, and not one of them is on the list.
On that list is Wanderlei but Nick Diaz and Shogun are the most exciting fighters.
Emmanuel Yarborough hands down.
Just watching him walk around the ring and gas is absolutely amazing to me.
Ikuhisa "the Punk" Minowa is great to watch.
all of the fighters on the list are coming off a loss so its hard for me to consider any of them to be the most exciting fighter to watch. at this point i have to go with anderson silva. hes had four fights over the past year and hes stopped them all in impressive fashion.
In terms of constantly going for it all, Clay Guida is up there.
I also find Randy Couture, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria and Josh Barnett exciting to watch.
Shogun and Anderson Silva are Deffinitlly the most exciting fighters imo to watch at this point they are both fast paced fighters who come out looking for the finish, and never coast threw a fight. As for the people on your list they are all coming of poor performances so its hard to pick one of them.
im going with wandy
This is a horrible poll.
Ill go with wandy since he always goes in with heart no matter the opponent.
Geeeez. This post was revived from February. When it was made, all the guys were coming off wins. Things change and evolve quickly in mma. Even then, I knew I had missed tons of names. It's a 6 option poll. And while today I'd probably change 1 or 2 or maybe even 3 of the names on there, I'd still list at least half of them on the poll. So ease up on me about the quality of the poll.
While I don't condone duplicate threads, I don't think it would do much harm to start a new one with a new poll on this topic of conversation.
Win or lose... They are still exciting fighters
BJ Penn IMO. He's just so damn good at everything he does. He doesn't dick around either. He gets in there and bangs.
As much of a Franklin fan as I am I think Anderson Silva is really an exciting fighter. When he starts swinging it's just an explosion and then it seems like the fight is over. Though Liddell and Cro Cop are really exciting obviously because of their ability to just change the fight with one strike.
6. Spencer Fisher
Nothing is better then brilliant Muay Thai...so Anderson Silva takes it in my book. I love watching him carve up opponents like scientist with his striking.

im gonna take a wild guess and say you are from the midwest
i like your list though
When they are on form, Cro Cop and Wanderlei are just amazing. Espescially Cro Cop, he is just the ultimate in MMA striking, he is just so sharp its unreal!
Anderson Silva gets a vote too, because I do love see Muay Thai, even if he only uses a limited range of the techniques available to him, he uses them well enough to get some exciting wins in MMA.
