    Top 5 most entertaining fighters


    Make a list of your top 5 most entertaining fighters. Not the best fighters, but the ones you'd pay to watch.

    1. Fedor-the guy gets me out of my seat when he fights. He's explosive and punishing and can end a fight given the smallest opening.
    2. Wanderlei-he's the axe murderer, nuff said.
    3. Anderson Silva-this guy just brutalizes people, and its pretty at the same time.
    4. Aleksander-a 6'6" stone cold killer. Fastest hands in the HW division, he makes people look stupid.
    5. BJ Penn-the hilo boy is so skilled its just amazing to watch.

    Didn't put any thought into this, so my view could easily change. Let me know what you think.

    I meant that gay quote, not the making fun of me part. That sh8t is on point. Guida is exciting with his non-stopness, but he doesn't do it for me, no spectacular abilities. Karo? Yeah, he's exciting at times, but more exciting than Aleks or BJ, I dunno.

    Your 6th pick is farking awesome, I semi-lawler'coptered.

    p.s. It stays hard

    The quote is from the Lost Highway so is the creepy pic.

    Aleks is exciting but not quite at the top for me. BJ's exciting, but his fight with Sherk was pretty boring. I wasn't that into his fights with Jens or Joe either.

    Karo had a snoozer against that Jap dude (forgot his name) but has been in some of the best fights ever like against Diego or Diaz.

    Your BS is way too confusing for the likes of me. The quote is making fun of me also? I remember sh*t in reality, don't fark with me. Guida and Karo more exciting than Aleks, me thinks not.

    I don't know, am I? Maybe you're the punchline in an inside joke that Mullet and I have by PM?

    Maybe I'm just playing mind games like Tito did with Shamrock Keep looking over your shoulder.

    Fedor
    Wanderlei
    Anderson
    Guida

    For current fighters. Obviously Guida is nowhere as talent as the aforementioned but that guy always brings the fight. People say Tyson Griffin or Huerta are entertaining but look at their last fights. They are only entertaining when fighting someone like Guida who pushes the action. Sure Guida's recklessness costs him the fight but it's always entertaining to watch. I admire Penn's style but when he gasses his fights are lackluster, as evident with the GSP fight. There are actually a number of entertaining fighters that I've excluded or just escape my mind at the moment.

    In no particular order:

    Fedor, GSP, Aleks, Nick Diaz, Penn, Faber, Manhoef, Eddie Alvarez, Wanderlei, Baroni when he's juiced. Yes I know that's more than 5. Ill think of more later.

    No, the quote is unrelated to the other comment, but I'm tanking hard apparently so I'll have to change it. Tanking like John Lovetz from the Saget roast (can't even remember if that's his name). I missed most of it, but heard that Giraldo was on point.

    A lot of people that are new to the sport pretend to know everything when it's obvious they don't sh1t. It's cool that you fessed up to it and didn't try to fake it. Keep watching. It's the best sport out there.

    Diaz has had a few snoozers lately, but also some amazing ones in the past. He's so good and exciting on the ground that it pisses me off that he's not working on his TDs more. Go train with a wrestling camp for a while or something. I tend only enjoy the standup when he's getting pounded.

    220? Are you planning to fight at 205?

    Bj Penn
    Wandy
    Nick Diaz

    Best body/leg beating: fedor vs sobral
    Beat head kick absorbtion: Abidi vs le banner
    Best "im not going to let you fall down" Couture vs gonzaga
    Best takedown defence: Penn vs sherk
    Best chop at stone: Fujita vs fedor


    I enjoy a good ole fashioned genki sudo cung le or griffin fight but those guys got some work to do to make the list.

    Eating contest? That's pretty funny. Are you training for it? What type of food is it?

    Indeed you did my friend. You had a lot of fighting stories in one of your threads and said something about punching harder than Hendo as I recall so I thought I'd give you a little sh1t.

    Where have you been at?

    Ive been in another town goin to school, studying lots. Im mostly interested in the mma portion of this board and adding training tips to others. Hendo hits hard but i bet youve matched some lifts of professional bodybuilders, lol. I make grand claims at times but im not a liar just a delusional braggard.
