I guess the obvious choice for me would be Anderson Silva or Georges St. Pierre, personally i'd like to see them fight each other lol.

Lyoto Machida. I gotta support the Karate guy. Proves that utilizing karate in the MMA works and shows how Karate strikes are devastating, the way he dropped Thiago Silva with that strike, Rashard Evans met the same fate and I'm sure he'll **** up Mauricio Rua, can't wait for that fight. But after him, Anderson Silva definitely, and it'd be a battle if Lyoto and Silva fought and I wouldn't think it would matter even if Anderson Silva is at a weight disadvantage, that match would be a battle.

So many roads I know
So many roads to ease my soul

I'm waiting for Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin. That should be a good fight, the battle of the super heavyweights.

See, I just got into UFC. I used to think it was a bunch of crap but it's very exciting! Don't have a favorite fighter yet, but I often find myself rooting for the guys who don't look like fighters but are lethal! From what I've seen, I like BJ Penn, Randy Couture and of course the "Iceman" Chuck Liddell. I'm sure I'll add some more favorites as I learn more about it...

I saw a few matches when Royce Gracie was still competing and winning most of the fights. Lost interest a bit because of how they began to hype it in the same "macho/badass" way as WWF , - recently though fighters like Machida and Silva have gotten me interested enough to give it another shot despite the hype. I also watch a little K-1.

I've been a huge Lyoto Machida fan for a couple years, ever since I saw the Hoger fight (UFC debut) I knew he was going to be something special. Pre-"Lyoto is boring" discussion. I really do prefer slick-crafty counter strikers though. He is awesome though and so respectful as well.

Hideo Tokoro is a really exciting fighter to watch, fights for Dream though.

I like a lot of fighters in the UFC, but those 2 are probably my favs. Anderson and Shogun are very fun to watch fight as well.

I know you can see me. Bad guys always see me. My plans suck. People die. It's always a mess.

My fave fighter is Georges St. Pierre and I also really like Anderson Silva. I like them because they're the only 2 who have so far made me feel sorry for the person they were fighting. Watching Silva toy with Franklin, I just felt so bad. It wasn't fair. I want to see a GSP/Silva fight, just not sure it will happen.

I wish Fedor would stop letting his handlers control his career. He should be fighting the best guys in the UFC but if all he's worried about is money/marketing, he'll continue to fight in lesser leagues. He's basically a major league baseball player playing in AAA. Lesnar/Fedor or Silva/Fedor would be huge. Along with GSP/Silva, those matches might be the only 3 I'd pay what UFC charges for the Pay-per-view. I usually just wait and find it online the next day for free.

any of you guys on sherdog.com? If your a fan of the ufc or mma in general, you should go check out the forums. Some very educated people on there.... Some of the stuff that people post is just flat out funny and will literally make you laugh of loud... I have to say that I'm defiantly addicted to sherdog, and I'm not even a member...

I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is. -Derek Zoolander:

BROCK LESNAR.

He is the only reason why I even care just a little bit about MMA. I like to see the former pro rassler infuriate the MMA purists.
