Emmanuel Yarborough hands down.

Just watching him walk around the ring and gas is absolutely amazing to me.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
