    Pretty hard to say...But guys who are technically sound and rounded are the ones I root for: Hughes, Cotoure, Belfort, Bas.... Then the guys that are just really angry...Baroni, Tito, Liddell...
    There's one guy who's not fighting UFC that I've trained with (he fought Severn to a tie) he fights lower promotions, and the guy is just awesome: Pat stano
    Respect and like most of them!

    BJ Penn has recently proven to be 'all he sais he is', i prefer matt hughes because i love slams, and quinton rampage jackson is the man after slamming Arona like that!! Slamming fighters rule!

    I think alot of the guys with the wrestling backgrounds are slammers'! Frye's awesome as well... anytime you have someone who can maneuver a throw or slam is awesome! When I spare I will always try to work a throw, or slam into it...it's better than a punch or a kick, you use the momentum generated by both your weights and you just smash em'! I want to spare now....!

    I think ken is torn, between not fight and fighting! He doesn't want to retire he still wants to fight...but he's not at the top of his game...I think he's torn. I saw him fight 3 years ago when he had his own promotion, Mega Fights, and physically he looked good he wasn't huge but he wasn't ripped. The fight seemed like a work, but talking to one my instructors who fought that night he said the guy came in with like 1 days notice and it was a legit tap, ankle lock i believe.

    No one can argue that Fedor is simply the best, he has no emotions, no facial expressions..just business..walks in there and wins

    Vanderlei Silva or Mirko Cro-Cop. These two are the most exciting fighters IMO so they would get my vote.

    Can't wait to see if he wins the grand prix next month.

    I like quinton after the last pride match he had. Gotta love a guy when he is being put into a triangle choke and he just blows it off by picking his opponent up over his head and thorws him so hard into the mat that he is instanly knocked out and gets 30-40 of his own stiches when the guy bounces off the mat and hits him in the face, oh wait a minute let me give you 2 quick punches in the face before the ref can physically get between me and you...hahaha

    So many great skilled guys out there. The sport just keeps getting better, which means bigger audiences and bigger checks for the fighters.

    it will be along time before mma fighters can be making boxing-like money, but its strange how its spreading really fast in the states but there are still no big ime sponsors that can help make events happen!
    Japan will never have a problem because their main source is dream stage entertainment wich is a company that is extrmley profitable with or without Pride, so they can afford to keep the show going for a long time and let fighters make good money.
    The UFC on the other hand is always running into big time money problems and giving fighters pay-cuts just because they can barely break even in every show. The UFC has great fighters and can give the opportunity for many more new faces to emerge if only there was a legit, big time sponsor!!

    I do not believe that MMA will ever be a $$ big event outside of Japan aside from the odd superfight or some special event. Look at boxing, the pay is the ****s outside of the top 10 heavyweight unless your name is Jones Jr or De LaHoya. Foreman probably makes more selling those grills in a year than all of the top 10 heavies put together. The average person, this is who sponsors and advertisers are looking to reach, is simply not into sports that consist entirely of physical violence.

    And there's the problem, its promoted as a 'blood and guts' all out violent fight. We have the same problem in Europe with HUGE opposition to even allowing athletes to train for any kind of MMA. It IS a violent sport to Mr. Joe Average but we have to get away from packaging the whole deal as such.

    I think i's about $20 for UFC here and $29.99 for Pride's heavy weight tournament. I get them on PPV, there are also businesses that pay to broadcast them. For example there is a bar at the University of Maryland called the cornerstone that paid for the right to display all the UFC fights.

    Pride is where it's at. I think things will get better with all the PPV money rolling in. Anyone have a clue what the top guys in pride get paid?

    Kimo Fails UFC 48 Drug Test
    Published by Matthew Boone on 07/04/2004 at 03:28 PM

    Click Here To Discuss This News In The MMANews.com Forums!

    According to Dave Meltzer of WrestlingObserver.com, Kimo Leopoldo failed his drug test for UFC 48: Payback.

    Kimo, who was found with a similar agent as former UFC champion Tim Sylvia was found with earlier this year, will likely face a hefty suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    The other three fighters tested for UFC 48 include Ken Shamrock, Tim Sylvia, and Frank Mir, all passed their tests.

    Don't tell anyone but since I have had digital cable I have ordered about 5 fights in the last 5 months and never got billed for any.

    Poor Kimo. I was so disappointed that fight was over quickly.
