I don't really care about the article sating that the system is flawed not the judges. But check out that poll. I can't even pick 4 of my favorite fighters.

My number one being Hendo, two Big Nog, three Mayhem, four Couture, and finally Nick Diaz. They have Bisping, Hamill, and Serra. Who is going to pick those guys as there favorites?!?!?!?!?!

Worst poll I have ever seen. Thumbs down fox news, thumbs down.

Bisping isn't credible at all. He hasn't fought anyone whos solid, and Hamill just showed that his striking isn't as great as everyone thought. Lets see him drop to middleweight, Mayhem would spank him like his bitch.

I am not saying Mayhem should be on a poll for favorite fighter (although he does have the fanbase, a lot more then half of the fighters on there), I was just saying he was one of my favs. But he could be in lots of polls. Like worst beatdown from GSP, most entertaining fights, or funniest fighter.

As for Serra, well ya hes the WW champ but I don't know a single person whos favorite fighter is Serra.

after checking the poll, i agree, it is pretty sad. no fedor or shogun, its a ufc mainstream poll only. almost as if the guy just got into mma in the last 2 weeks

It's not the greatest polls but it's also not terrible. You have to remember that this is a Foxsports poll not sherdog.

I ahve to admit after the Hamill fight I've jumped on the Bisping hate wagon. Before that I probably would have picked The Count to beat those guys but now I'm going to have to see some serious ass whoopin coming from Bisping. Until then I ahve to continue the hating.
