    Not sure if the are many fans on here so i thought i'd start a thread to find some fellow fans. I won't post any fight spoilers yet as i'm not sure where other fans are at as far as watching events.

    I guess an easy way to start is favorite fighter, fighting style and your favorite fight.

    I'll start:

    Favorite fighter: Anthony Pettis - kids got tonnes of heart and isn't afraid to try something special for the fans, huge fan of stand up and pettis has been involved in some of the best exchanges i've seen. He's great on the ground especially with subs and with a bit more td defense he'll be back on trackfor a title shot imo.

    Fight style: fan of all styles, big fan of technical striking exchanges tho, get annoyed at wrestlers laying on people or holding against the cage without attacking or trying to advance their position.

    Favorite fight: Frank Mir vs. Noguiera II, was jumping like a mad man at that finish.

    What are yours?

    I'll play, I usually don't miss a fight. Can't wait for this week end.

    Fav Fighter: GSP Baby! Love him or hate him he's good. After that it would be Chael Sonnen, I just read an interview with Dana White in which he said ''I have to have two press conferences just to clear up all the shit this guy says.''

    Fight Style: I generally prefer a good stand up match (Hendo v Rua), but I do enjoy a good grappling/jujitsu match as well, when Mir popped Big Nogs arm was insane.

    Fav Fight: Gotta be Silva v Sonnen, probably not the best fight I've seen but man was it exciting.

    Honestly, a little part of me dies inside ever time I'm talking with someone who's a fight fan... but who doesn't know who GSP is.

    Favorite fighter: Matt Hughes, he was the first fighter I ever paid attention to.

    Fight style: Kickboxing, I just like seeing people get their faces kicked in.

    Favorite fight: Diego "Nightmare" Sanchez vs Clay "The Carpenter" Guida. From the second this fight started to the decision this fight was high octane and never had a dull moment. I didn't care who won, cause the fans were the ones who truly won.
