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

Perhaps a bit cliche, but..

Randy Couture.
Not just because he's a great athlete and competitor (though both are accurate), but because of his class and humility - something a great majority of contemporary fighters lack.

As well, for perhaps something a little more obscure, Spencer Fisher.
I find the energy and intensity of his fights to be very entertaining.

Sorry Steve, I know he got our fellow Canadian (and your fellow Londoner) Sam Stout not once, but twice. Both excellent matches though..

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

I really like alot of them, but my favorite is a tie between Hendo and Franklin. I'm going to have such mixed emotions Jan. 17th.

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

BJ, GSP and Urijah.
I don't know how I am going to deal with it when BJ and GSP face each other. I guess I'll be rooting for both of them, but hoping BJ wins.

I wonder if Urijah can pack on enough weight to fight at 155# for the long term and switch to UFC.

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

I have a few.

Kenny Florian
Forest Griffin
Randy Couture
And I still like "the Ice man" Chuck Liddel

I like when the underdog wins too.

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

After this season of TUF, Nogueira is one of my favorite fighters. He seemed like a really stand up guy and coach for his team.

And of course Anderson Silva is just awesome to watch.

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

Funny how favorites and current champions just happen to be the same in a lot of these posts!

I'm a Joe Lauzon and Bradon Vera fan.

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

Okay, fair enough. Tank Abbot is my all time favorite...

People frequently pick their favorites due to the fact that they are fans of quality fighters. The game is advancing so rapidly that the best and most dynamic fighters also happen to be current champions.

Conversely, I really don't like BJ or Matt Serra or Brock Lesnar, Shonie Carter or Rashad Evans. Joshua brought up a great one in Nogueira. He has moved up my list due to his appearance on the show. Likewise Mir has fallen off my radar for the same reason...

Wanderlei when he was in Pride; not so much now. He was just a juggernaut though.

Currently my fave to watch is Clay Guida.
