Gomi was my favorite of the poll options, so I gave him a vote, even though he's somewhere in the middle of my list of favorites. It's hard to pick one guy but if I had to list ten I'd go with.

1. Rumina Sato (one of the names responsible for Japan's MMA boom, and the biggest living legend in their scene save Sakuraba)
2. Masatoshi Abe (the greatest fighter you've never heard of, bar none)
3.Joachim Hansen (Hellboy is Helboy, nothing else needs to be said)
4.Jens Pulver (Little Evil has hands of stone and the heart of a lion, always fun to watch)
5. Pawel Nastula (Yeah, he hasn't had the greatest career in MMA, guy's still one of my heros)
6. Igor Vovchancyn (The scariest guy in MMA, ever, you watched him fight for the same reason you wait for the crashes in motor sports, you know you shouldn't look but the end result promised to be something to see)
7. Sergei Kharitonov (A nice guy and a promising fighter, interesting now to see how he copes with being back after some bad injuries)
8. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (A true warrior, his exploits in the ring are the stuff people will be talking about decades from now)
9. Quinton Jackson (ladies and gentlemen, this sports Muhammad Ali, enough said)
10. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (see below)

The ten spot is sort of a revolving door, but Sok is as deserving as anyone else and has a lot of promise, plus I really enjoy watching him fight. That said, this took about twenty minutes to do, there so many other guys I love to watch and would like to list, but most of the guys that I would pay to see no matter what are there.

Marcus Davis, the future WW champion of 2009.

so much talent, so much dedication; this man improves every time he sets foot in the octagon and with an ever evolving ground game to compliment his insane hands he will be a force to be reckoned with mark my words.
