Trust me there's plenty of others to follow. When I first got into it bigtime, Brock F'n Lesnar and Rampage were my two favorites by far til I gradually realized one was an ass and one was a stubborn crybaby. Over time I found new favorites and now I love the sport more than ever.

A dominant display of mixed martial arts while showcasing elite wrestling, striking and great jiu jutsu.
agreed agreed agreed.

the casual fan may feel like 'whatever dude i enjoyed it so don't rag on anderson yo', but GSP, fedor, jones and the other greats fight first and foremost to win... as both entertainment and science.

even when fedor wasn't fighting technically in his three losses, he wasn't out to take people's money.

Is Floyd next? I believe so. What a crazy year for combat sports. I jumped up in disbelief.

Anderson showboats too much and manny doesnt have a great defense. hes been knocked down and knocked out before. Mayweather is one of the smartest boxers out there and has alot of experience. If he loses its because age will have caught up with him and not because he didnt care or made a stupid mistake

I thought Silva was joking around at first and playing possum and it didn't set in until Herb waived it off and then I was stunned. Silva's extreme cockiness and arrogance finally caught up to him and I'm kind of glad. I've always wanted to see a fighter get KO'd when they were showboating (though I was kind of hoping it would be someone like Nick Diaz), and that might make Weidman one of my fav fighters. That was probably the craziest KOs I've ever seen. Anderson got knocked silly while acting silly. I hope there's some good shots of his face.

There. $20 for 23 hours worth of the biggest/most important fights in UFC history. Granted some are debatable, but that'll get you up to speed on the sport and some of the bigger names in history.

Other than that though, it depends on what you value in a fighter. Do you just wanna cheer for the best? Cheer for the underdogs? Cheer for the classy/professional guys? The goofy/weird guys? Once you figure out what kinda fighter you like, you'll find your favorites a lot easier.

The Pettis Bro's are great young Fighters....( to watch )

But IMO one of the greatest Fights ever and a good Fight that reps MMA's overall style is Gomi vs Diaz....

The whole PRIDE 33 is one of the greatest MMA cards of alltime....must watch for all fans

I had the exact same reaction for that fight that I did for this one. Surreal moment that I'll talk about the next 24 hour with no sleep.

If you want to see why MMA is so amazing just watch...

Korean Zomie vs Poirier
Lauzon vs Varner
Jones vs anyone
Benson vs Diaz


Usually the lightweight and featherweight divisions offer the best mix of excitement, they don't gas yet still deliver KO power, quickness, skill and pure entertainment.
