1) Nick Diaz
2) Roy Jones Jr.
3) Naseem Hamed
4) Evan Tanner
5) Nathan Diaz
6) Dominick Cruz
7) Mike Tyson
8) Carlos Condit
9) Fedor Emelianenko
10) Marquez/Vazquez rivalry

I put the Marquez/Vazquez rivalry on there because it is about the only thing that kept my attention in the last half dozen years in boxing.

Most on my list either taunt/trash talk their opponents during fights or have a very unorthodox style. I've always gravitated towards those types of fighters.

First 3 Top 10's and 30 different fighters.

That's what's good about combat sports, not everyone wears a Yankees hat or Kobe jersey.

Just to be able to make this list, i had to make a top ten for each before i could start to narrow it down to 15.

All the fighters on the list fit into one(or more) of 4 categories.
1. Fighters who showed so much heart/chin/resilience/stamina/recovery/durability/toughness/waffles it was stupid(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,10,13,15)
2. Fighters who, no matter how much effort their opponents put forward, can avoid damage effortlessly.(1,3,5,7,8,9,12,14)
3. Fighters with stretchy pants.(11)
4. Fighters who cheat and consistently get away with it, because they cheat so good.(7&16)

1. BJ Penn (MMA)
2. Johnny Tapia (Boxing)
3. Rampage Jackson (MMA)
4. Mark Hunt (K-1)
5. Fedor Emelianenko (MMA)
6. Shogun Rua (MMA)
7. Bernard Hopkins (Boxing)
8. Dragon Machida (MMA)
9. Roy Jones Jr.(Boxing)
10. Marvin Hagler (Boxing)
11. Shinya Aoki (MMA)
12. Winky Wright (Boxing)
13. Arturro Gatti (Boxing)
14. Pernell Whitaker (Boxing)
15. Marco Antonio Barrera (Boxing)
16. This one really evil girl i know


Reflecting upon the list, i guess i really admire fighters who can step up against the baddest, meanest, toughest motherfuckers on earth. And leave without a scratch. They remind me of the bad guys Jackie Chan always hurts his hands on when he hits them in the face... and stretchy pants.
