    Fighters With Most Heart


    Fighting by nature takes a certain degree of heart, but there are some with more than others. The top guys that I think of when it comes to heart are:
    Don Frye
    Big Nog
    Saku
    Wand
    Hendo

    Others to add...

    I know this probably isn't quite where you were headed, but it takes a lot of heart to come back from addiction and be competitive.

    I like your list though, Rodja.

    And against Randy. If he gets in trouble, he doesn't seem to come back from it.

    I don't know if Sergei has heart or if he enjoys pain.

    Beating? The Chuck fight was a war, not a beating.

    More of the latter, he's a genuine psycho, it is not an act.

    His fight with Hunt was a war. The only beatings on Wand were against CC and Vitor.

    Ehh, he has so much scar tissue around his brow at this point in his career that a cut is going to happen in almost every fight, kinda like Diaz and Forrest.

    Wand/Liddell was a war, but also somewhat of a beating.

    I'd probably replace Vitor with Henderson. Vitor just caught him and it was over quick. To me, a beating is longer. Henderson was pounding Wandy most of the 2nd fight.

    Could he out-psycho Branko?

    REmember his staredown with Choi Mu Bae (I think it was him)? He definitely seemed a little psycho in that one.

    Damn, I doubt it. I don't think Dahmer has anything on Branko.

    Sergei's staredowns are usually pretty good, if I remember correctly Choi was trying to avoid the staredown and Sergei was psychotically following his face around

    Choi was playing along to but Sergei gives this laugh at the end that's rather twisted.

    #1 I think is forrest griffin. The man basically needs a beating to get going and I love that about him. I really hope he beats rampage he deserves the title more then anyone.

    Big Nog has the most heat of any fighter out there. The fight with Cro Cop was a prime example. Got his ass kicked for the entire first round then pulled an armbar out of nowhere.

    Truly one of the most inspirational fights I've ever seen.

    Not sure it's fair to put Guida in there. I think he's missing a chip in his brain that allows him to be oblivious to pain and fatigue. The other guys have to fight through it.
