I have always like LHW but as of late (especially this year) the LW's have been putting everyone to shame...

Gomi / Diaz
Tyson / Edgar
Huerta / Garcia

And that's just the tip of the iceberg

As for fighters, i like:

HW: Big Nog or Barnett
LHW: Wand, Nakamura
MW: A.Silva
WW: Marcus Davis or Nick Diaz
LW: Nick Diaz or Shinya Aoki

Don't like:

HW: ?
LHW: Tito & Arona
MW: Trigg
WW: Kos & Hughes'
LW:? EDIT: I can't stand Gabe Ruddiger

I hate BJ Penn because everybody loves him so much but he has had few accomplishments.... ok he won the world BJJ competition with only 3 years of training - I give him props for that.... but aside from that, the only notable fighters he beat were Gomi (who was also beat by Diaz - I'd favor Diaz over Penn any day), and Hughes (who was also beat by GSP - I'd favor GSP over Penn any day).

I agree I HATE BJ Penn with a passion, he has literally no class for any fighters, want to prove me wrong? Look at Pulver/Penn II when the ref tapped Bj to stop, BJ reeled back and continued the choke, that show absolutely no class what so ever. BJ Penn I can not stand.

Also Ken Shamrock, I know he does not fight in the Octagon anymore, but I can not STAND Shamrock, he is an arse and had his time of grace but I never liked him.

Rashad Evans, he dances around way too much and I have zero respect for him.

I like Matt Hughes fighting skills, but outside the octagon look at Shamrock, Hughes is an arse outside of the octagon and does not show anybody not even Royce the proper respect.

Tim Slyvia.. need I say more?

Gabe Rudiger- see above

People I like:
Rich Franklin
Brandon Vera
Sean Sherk
Tito Ortiz
Matt Serra (Non-bandwagoner)
Stephan Bonnar
Randy Couture (how can you not like Randy)
Urijah Faber (non-ufc)
Wanderlei Silva

I would continue but will not.

Went with LW, since the WW title has been held hostage for a reality show the LW has been really putting them to shame. Actually even before then the LW has been bringing the quality.

HW: Randy Couture
LHW: Rashad Evans
MW: Evan Tanner
WW: Luke Cummo
LW: BJ Penn

Most hated

HW: Assuerio Silva
LHW: Tito Ortiz

Since i have been a BJ fan for a long time before pulver penn 2, It does kind of annoy me that all of a sudden a lot of people are in love with BJ but how can you say he has no class for other fighters. He gets up after holding the choke for maybe an extra second, while many fighters need to be pulled off their opponents, and hugs Jens, who has been his enemy, and invites him to come train with him. He offers free lessons on his website and is dedicated to spreading MMA, he works for free with kids out of his academy to keep them out of trouble. He is a great example of a role model for mma and he's classless?
