Ohh shit I forgot the Korean Zombie! Hes usually high up there. Haha I know what you're sayin. I honestly never once believed Hughes lost until he was either KO'd or tapping. I just always assumed he had something big up his sleave that could win the fight. Same for guys like Chuck an Chris Lytle!

KZ is a must! I get that way with Wandy, Chael, and JDS. Always feel they can take the W no matter what.

Mir - in the sense that he's turned his career around so many times think after the accident we all thought he was washed up then he came back won the belt. Lesnar pounds him out we all say he's done at the top he earns another title shot. Carwin murders him and we assume ok he's done at the top but no he claws back to another shot against jds. now he's in dire need of one more turnaround.


Forrest - I just think hes scrappy and has heart and until the fights done I wont quit on him


Leben- I don't like him as a person very much but his style was always fun to watch and even though the last few years haven't been kind to him every time he fights no matter how far behind on points or beat up he is I keep thinking his power will come through and drop a guy

I'ma go ahead and add Kampmann, I'm not a huge fan but I remember thinking Thiago had their fight won and then Kampmann choked him out off a shot from Thiago. Was incredible.
