2014 is just around the corner so I figure it's a good time to see if any of the PG's favorites have changed in the past few years.

My all-time favorite has always been good ole' Chuck. He's the one that sparked my interest in the sport and I was still supporting him when I eventually made my way to the PG back in '10. Unfortunately I was too late to share some of Chuck's greatest moments with you guys.

But thankfully I had a new guy in the background about to burst into the MMA mainstream. Frankie Edgar. He's had my #1 position secured since Chuck's retirement.

So what about you guys? Any new favorites or still trucking with the oldies?

Thatch seems to be pretty exciting, and Hendricks won me over recently. Machida's new weight seems promising too, and Vitor is having a resurgence.
MW is heating up big time, as is LHW

TJ Grant
He's always been one of my favs but mainly due to the fact that he lives down the road from me & I'm obligated to root for the few fighters who are from my part of the globe.

BUT this year TJ has proved he's more then just a manly red beard! He's a lightweight beast & number one contender !!! Really hope he gets his title shot in 2014

Kiss ass(you asked for it). I really hope we get to see Tyson on AXS at some point next year, although I'm not sure how busy of a schedule he wants to/is able to keep. As long as he keeps winning, like we all hope he does, it's just a matter of time.

As far as my favorite right now, probably Pettis as he's homegrown and always fun to watch. It's hard not to mention Hendo as well.

I'm really hoping 2014 is the year of the Pitbull... Alves & Arlovski.
I know Alves is planning on a March return and Arlovski is the reason I got into MMA so he takes the spot as my all time favorite.
I'm really excited to see what Mighty Mouse can do in 2014 too. This year especially I've grown to be a huge fan of him and if he gets past JoeB in a couple weeks I see him being champion for a long time

My Top Favorites from the past and currently are Randy Couture, and Jose Aldo.

But to elaborate....


Non-Current favorites:
Randy Couture
Don Frye
Royce Gracie
Igor Vovchanchyn
kazushi sakuraba

==================

Current favorites:
Aldo is my current favorite.
Lawler earned some points in my book when he whooped Rory MacDonald.
Jones is just so fun for me to watch fight (those elbows!).
I've recently become a huge fan of Nurmagomedov (after he beat Abel Trujillo), and I like the Korean Zombie because he seems to have so much heart.
