Who are your favorite and least favorite MMA fighters

with so many fighters that are beloved and polarizing i wanted to see who provokes feelings in fans on this site in both a positive and negative way. i have just started posting in this forum more over the past year and am not up on each fans fighters.

my favorites michael chandler, patricky pitbull friere, doug lima, anderson silva, benson henderson, anthony pettis, wanderlai silva, chael p sonnen

michael chandler, pitbull, and lima are some of bellators top fighters. when watching that promotion these are the guys i get excited to see also shamelet shabulov (sp) whos a ko artist at 145

ben henderson, pettis, and wandy silva-of course are in good exciting fights. always enjoy these guys.

anderson silva-is definatly my favorite guy. his reverse elbow ko of tony fryklund is something special. then you add chael silva 1 to the list it just cements the legacy. chael/silva 1 is my favorite all time fight, i knew the outcome of the fight before i actually saw it and i was still amazed and couldnt believe my eyes when silva submitted chael late in the 5 round. unbelievable




i hate king mo, carlos condit, overeem, and jon jones

king mo-i hate for the way he fought with his hands down against emanuel newton. seeing king mo have so much disregard for newton made the spinning back fist ko even more sweeter. a big thing for me that makes someone likable or not is how seriously they take opponents and in this case someone thought they were gonna just coast to a world title.

carlos condit-never engaged in his fight against nick diaz. for me running away constantly for 3 rounds just irks me. the only fight thats even remotely contested in a similiar manner i can think of was gray maynard/clay guida.

allistar overeem-disrespected big foot silva thinking the win and title shot were money in the bank. what a sweet sweet 3 round come from behind ko.

jon jones-behaviour and fakeness rub me the wrong way. quit trying to act like a nice guy we all know youre insincere.

Like: GSP, Overeem, JDS, Bendo, Lombard
Dislike: Diaz bros, Velasquez

EDIT: I'm trying to get into MMA more. Ever since Strikeforce was bought out, it's been all UFC for me. Any good fighters to watch out for in Bellator? I'm gonna watch Bellator starting next week, Bellator 101. I also started following WSOF. Arlovski was the only fighter I knew from their last event. The good thing about Bellator and WSOF is that their main cards are on free TV (Spike and NBCSN respectively).

Whats there to hate about cain? He has great boxing and great gnp, i dont think iv seen many boring fights from him. Any time iv seen him on camera he seems like the kind of champion the ufc needs. If there is some thing i dont know like he beats his wife and kids or some thing let me know.

I guess I'd put him in the indifferent category. His fight against Diaz really put me off about him but other than fight he's exciting to watch.

Regarding Cain, it's pretty self explanatory.

diaz fight, he ran away constantly like a *****. the diaz fight was the first time id seen condit fight and it left a bad taste in my mouth not to mention the retarded scoring. if you see how gustafsson ran away and then turned to fight jones its different then never engaging. condit allowed greg jackson to give him a **** game plan and im not ok with that.

I like the guys who are exceptionally good at specific things. Sonnen. Maia. Dos Santos. Werdum. Coleman. Spider. Tito.

I like guys who bounce up and down weight classes to find cool fights. Dan Henderson. Vitor Belfort. BJ Penn.

Like Andrei Arlovski. He was the first real freak athlete heavyweight with great standup / great takedown defense and I pondered putting him in the time machine back to UFC 1 and him just murdering Royce Gracie.

Dislike Wanderlei ... too frantic a style, not interesting to watch.

Dislike Bones Jones and GSP for the same reason ... I always feel like they fight not to lose and that we're often not seeing the limits of what they can do.
