Jones
Pettis
Velasquez
Weidman
Aldo
Hendricks
Rousey
Johnson
Dillashaw

Honestly though there isn't a single UFC champ who I don't like to see fight and this list would change frequently.

This is very hard and without true comparisons made...just initial feelings. Also not in order of favorite over another, but by weight class and including old schoolers.

LHW Wanderlei
MW Anderson and Weidman

LW Pulver and Edgar
FW Faber and Freire

I ranked them by how much I like to see them fight not by how much I like them as a person because jones would be dead last and DJ would be first.

This is my favorite based on who I get more excited to watch.

1. Jones
2. Aldo
4. Pettis
3. Weidman
5. Hendricks
6. Dillashaw
7. Velasquez
8. Rousey
9. Johnson

Though, as a result of basing the ranking on my excitement at seeing them fight, this list relies heavily upon the other fighters in the division.
For example, Pettis and Weidman are only ranked so high because the opponents they must face make watching them more entertaining for me.
Likewise with Velaquez, Rousey, and Johnson being ranked so low.

Jones and Aldo are sonewhat outliers as I just find their particular styles to be so damn pleasing to witness. Not surprisingly, they are the only current champs listed in my PG "My Favorites" ranking.

I met Weidman 2 years ago in Vegas at the airport
He was a major dick.

I won't ever cheer for him.

Sad enough come Feb in Los Angeles
This will be my 5th time seeing him fight live

This is why I have him ranked low, only I sensed it through the camera, and noticed subtle details in his behavior that I connected to people I've known.

If it's a rating of how much I like a fighter, I consider what kind of person they are, their personalities and their attitudes, regardless of whether I would pick them to win a fight or if they are dynamic or exciting, although skill does have some influence.
