GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

I just watched GSP vs Serra on Spike for the 8th time. I still love how GSP dominated him in that fight.

Being from Canada I may be a little bias however, GSP is my favorite.

Who's yours and why?

Re: GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

GSP and Fedor are tied for #1 head and shoulders above everyone and Anderson is #2. Anderson slid after his last fight with Cote'. He's amazing but character still counts...

GSP may have done some nutty stuff but I think his was a language misunderstanding ie:the whole "not impressed" thing with Hughes on TV after Hughe's big win.

Re: GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

GSP! He's so awesome and so respectful of his fellow fighters. I was at the Serra fight.....incredible! Of course, I had to watch it with one eye closed towards the end, no one told me Canadian beer was so lethal! I would love to go to a fight in Canada again (minus a few beers).

Re: GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

Anderson Silva is just on another level.

I really get the feeling watching him that we are seeing something very special in terms of talent and execution that has not been seen before in MMA.

Re: GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

I don't really have 1 favorite, but I do have many. If I had to choose it would be a 3 way tie between anderson silva, kenny florian, and kid yamamoto. All because they are southpaws that I would like to emulate. GSP is up there though. My wife would definetely answer GSP just because she likes looking at him and listening to him talk. Nothing at all to do with fighting.

Re: GSP! Who's your favorite MMA fighter.

Anderson Silva and BJ Penn would have to be the top of my list. also John Fitch is always fun to watch, plus he went further with GSP than anyone in a long time and proved he's one tough A$$ guy!
