I really love Fedor, and everything he is about.

LHW-Shogun Rua
When I first got into MMA, I went out and the first DVD's I bought were the 2005 GP. From that moment on, I always loved shogun.

How do you not love him!?

WW-GSP/Marius Zaromskis
Georges goes without saying, after all I am a canuck. And Marius I have really attached myself to. I like his story. I'm running his fanpage on FaceBook, he has some very passionate fans.

Cristiane Cyborg Santos aswell.
11/7/09 4:20:35PM
HW-Frank Mir
LHW-Renato "Babalu" Sobral.....can't explain my man crush on him either
MW-Nate "The Great" Marquardt
WW-Nick Diaz, in the div he belongs is awesome! (although I am hugging Rumble's nuts hard lately!)
LW-Roger Huerta (The absolutely mos competitve div in the world IMO!)
FW-Urijah Faber
BW-Damacio Page (hardest div to actually watch live, it's not only in WEC!)
11/7/09 5:07:24PM
I used to watch the UFC's back in the day around UFC 1-10 or so and ended up losing track a little for a while and began getting the PPV's regularly with the UFC's in the mid 40's. With Nick Diaz's KO over Lawler at UFC 47 and GSP's TKO over Hieron at UFC 48, and Evan Tanners win over Baroni at UFC 48, those were my 3 favorite fighters for years and years. With Evan's passing, Nate Diaz has jumped into my 3 favorites with Nick and Georges.
11/7/09 5:35:06PM
HW - Aleksander Emelianenko
LHW - Chuck Liddell
MW - Evan Tanner
WW - Dustin Hazelett
LW - Kenny Florian
11/7/09 7:24:22PM
HW - Fedor - I like his style and would think that it would be similar to mine. Ground and pound to work into a submission. I also like his demeanor when he fights.
LHW - Shogun-Machida - I really like both guys' styles. Both are great standing up and on the ground. Both have very unorthodox styles in terms of everyone else
MW - Vitor - Have liked this guy since I first saw him in the early days of the UFC. He has certainly dealt with a lot over the past 15 years.
WW - GSP - Good fighting style and attitude. Plus, he's Canadian.
LW - Used to be Franca, but he has disappointed me in the past few fights. Not sure who my fave is now. Florian has really impressed me as a fighter, but I can't stand the guy otherwise.
Below LW - Haven't watched enough to decide.
