Bones went after Chael Sonnen, but it didn't feel like he really went after Rashad, Rampage and Belfort (though injury might have been a part of the third). While I want to re-watch the Gustafsson fight, I don't remember Jones taking any big chances or doing anything aggressive / borderline reckless in that one. He was CHALLENGED by Gus, but that's on Gustafsson ... loved the fight, but after one watching, it just felt like Bones fought the same fight he always fights. I don't care that much if a guy loses, as long as he goes to get it, and while I know it sounds weird to say this while also saying I don't really care for Wanderlei Silva, but, hey ... that's the way it goes.

All time favorite is Cain. Guy is just so good. I think he's pound for pound the best fighter in the world. Good punching, aggressive, pushes the pace, great cardio, amazing wrestling, and can finish fights. Plus such a humble guy.

Also love Chael, Diaz Bros, Paul Sass, Urijah Faber, Jimy Hettes, and I might be forgetting one.

I have a bunch of guys I enjoy but won't list them all. Near the top is our new LHW champ, Alexander Gustafsson.

Hate: Jon Jones. **** him. Period. Guy's a tool and easily the most annoying fighter I know of when he talks. Plus I think he's overrated. Too many people act like he's an MMA god. I also generally hate Brazilians.

Again was looking for why people dont like cain, i saw some one say he has the personality of a boiled potato "dont understand why you would put him on your hate list for that?" and another person simply said "bronx pride" which is an even worse reason for the hate list. A harmless tattoo puts an awesome fighter on your hate list? Are there mma reasons any one can come up with , i havent seen any , i mean Guida i dont even need to say why he would be on some one's hate list. But cain i just dont get the hate.

So you would be fine with a person with "White Pride" across their chest?


I hate that tattoo... I hate other guys for stupid tattoos, too. Colin Fletcher, for one.

Plus, Cain isn't from Mexico.

And really, why do you care who and why I don't like someone?

i wasnt asking you specifically anything. if you dont like my question dont answer. sharing opinions is what the forums are about. was just wondering people's hate, its ok if you dont like his brown pride tattoo, i dont like it much either, but i still find most of his fights skillful and exciting. i dont have any hate for the guy because of the tat though.

wtf... you were the one that criticized my, and others, opinion and asked for more info just to criticize our responses and now you criticize my response to your most recent post? I don't get it... no, actually, I don't think you get it.


Besides, I don't think anyone said anything bad about his fighting abilities in this thread.

drop it, already.

i criticized 2 posts and only 2 posts dont make it out like i was ragging on the whole forum bud calm down have a smoke or coffee. enough about cain . I like fighters that really come out to fight , it isnt always the same guys either, gsp was one of my favorite fighters but really hasnt had an exciting fight since fitch, then there is a guy like ryan jimmo who me and my brother have seen fight in mfc several times and was boring every time, makes his debut in the ufc with the fastest ko in history, that was awesome.

GSP is my favourite. Franklin being close 2nd.

I like Rory MacDonald, Benson Henderson, Mark Hunt, Anderson Silva.

Don't like Bisping, Roy Nelson, Diaz brothers. Going to get a lot of head shakes here but not a fan of Sonnen. He just rubs me the wrong way.

My brother met Wanderlei Silva at an afterparty at one of the events over here. Apparently he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet. Hard to understand but a top guy.

My favourite by far is Anderson Silva. I make a point to never miss his fights live.

Least favourite is Ben Henderson. Not sure why but he rubs me the wrong way. I didn't watch WEC but I'm instantly a big fan of Pettis for that reason.

Add John Dodson to my least favourite. He's an excellent fighter and I wouldn't be shocked to see him take the flyweight title at some point but he seemed like a complete ***** on tuf.
