When a fighter officially retires I remove them from my top 10 favorites, not because theyre not a favorite anymore but just because it frees up slots for active fighters. War Couture!

GSP
Org - UFC
Div - WW
Last fight - UFC 129 win over Jake Shields

Rich Franklin
Org - UFC
Div - LHW
Last fight - UFC 126 loss to Forrest Griffin

Jose Aldo
Org - UFC
Div - FW
Last fight - UFC 129 win over Mark Homminick

BJ Penn
Org - UFC
Div - WW
Last Fight - UFC 127 Draw w/ Jon Fitch

Jon Jones
Org - UFC
Div - LHW
Last fight - UFC 128 win over Shogun

Wanderlei Silva
Org - UFC
Div - MW
Last fight - UFC 132 loss to Chris Leben

Donald Cerrone
Org - UFC
Div - LW
Last Fight - Fight Night vs 5 win over Charles Oliveira

Ben Henderson
Org - UFC
Div - LW
Last fight - Fight Night vs 5 win over Jim Miller

Nick Diaz
Org - UFC
Div - WW
Last Fight - Strikeforce Daley vs Diaz win over Paul Daley

Matt Hughes
Org - UFC
Div - WW
Last fight - UFC 123 loss to BJ Penn

6 Wins
3 Losses
1 Draw

Seems to me that Wanderlei, Hughes, Franklin, and Penn are all close to retirement. I love to watch them compete no matter what but they are all from the same generation and I think their time is coming to a close.

GSP and Nick Diaz were both young guns in the UFC when I started watching and its awesome to see them both in the spotlight against each other. Ive been a big fan of both for a very long time and I always thought that would be an awesome fight!

I started watching the WEC around the time Faber lost his belt to Mike Brown and I have enjoyed every event they put on since then. Im a big fan of many of the WEC guys and Im glad theyre having success in the UFC, hope it continues!

You're favorites have been making a decent run lately. You have some of the elite on the list.

1. Chuck Liddell = Retired but for a good reason

2. Randy Couture = Retired and once again for a good reason

3. Chris Lytle = Retired and once again for a good reason

4. Junior Dos Santos = Going for a title shot and liked him ever since that devastating knock out over Werdum

5. Gray Maynard = He is another one going for a title shot and I liked him on The Ultimate Fighter and he is a wrestler and I have to back up my fellow wrestlers

6. Jon Jones = Liked him after he beat Bonnar and right now is the LHW champ but he is slipping because of somethings he is doing/saying

7. Clay Guida = Liked him since well ever. He is an Illinois boy and once again a wrestler and I got to back him up. He is hopefully a soon to be #1 contender.

8. Demian Maia = Back in the day I felt like I needed to like a BJJ guy so I decided it would be Maia. I also at one point thought he would dethrone 'The Spider'.

9. Anderson Silva = After watching UFC for so long it is hard but at the same time isn't hard to fall in love with Anderson. Right now he is, what I think, the #1 fighter in the world and it looks like it will stay that way.

10. Ben Henderson = Seriously I moved him up after last nights fight. I thought he conducted himself greatly and is a class act. He is another LW looking to get into the title shot picture.


Poor_Franklin
8/16/11 2:04:17AM
Shogun- decimated by Jones

Belcher- Eye injury forces him out of Maia fight where a win would have boosted his stock tremendously in the MW division

Munoz- I think he has more to show us & will be a top 5 mw for a while. Now up for huge fight against the always dangerous Leben.

BJ Penn- huge fight against Condit. Coming off what i believe to be one of his more impressive fights in his draw to Jon Fitch....not many people can say they fought jon fitch & did not lose

Oliveira- just got CRUSHED by cerrone. it hurt me to see him lose like that, but i know he's young. he'll be a force for years to come

Anderson Silva- We all know where he is

Jose Aldo- win over Florian would add a familiar name to his already impressive resume

Wandy- went in wild & got crushed by Zombie Leben. hurt me to see him lose that way bc i know if he had stayed calm he wouldve finsihed leben. but asking wandy not to go for the kill is like asking me not to go for the peanut butter when im stoned.

Jon Jones- we all know he's fighting rampage

Rampage- we all know he's fighting Jon Jones

Hendo- just TKO'd Fedor

Franklin- lost to forrest. sucks he couldnt fight at 133, i was really looking forward to it
