Mark A. writes: Robbie Lawler is my favorite fighter. He is my favorite for a number of reasons first of all you know every time he gets in the cage he is in there to go to war, he puts his full heart and soul into every fight. He doesn’t play it safe like other past champions have, he tries to finish fights. He is a throw back fighter one who you would think would have no success in the modern era of the UFC. He will fight who ever they put in front of him he doesn’t go around calling out the easiest big money fights he fights whoever is next in line who the UFC puts in front of him. Robbie Lawler is a real born to be fighter.
Ken O. writes: Stephen Wonderboy Thompson because of his overall athletic ability in the cage.
Jeff Marquard writes: Nick Diaz – He isn’t scared, homie!!
Nestor Sanchez writes: My favorite current MMA fighter to watch is Jon Jones. His methodical style is compelling to watch and allows him to win fights. Jones does not always win in dominating fashion, but he does manage to always come off victorious. I believe he has the highest fight IQ in the UFC right now. He rarely gets hit with clean shots, has only been taken down two or three times, and has lost fewer than five rounds in 22 fights. Jon Jones is a well-rounded fighter who also has the ability to dictate where a fight will go. I also like the fact that he has tremendous confidence in himself and does a great job intensely studying his opponents before all of his fights. I am anticipating his possible move to heavyweight and, even then, I do not see Jon Jones losing.
