    Kazushi Sakuraba : One of my favorite fighters who fought for Pride. He specialized in Catch Wrestling and had some amazing submissions. At one point he was coined as "The Gracie Killer."
    Anderson Silva (The Spider) : Anderson is a Brazilian fighter renowned for his amazing striking and Muay Thai skills. He use to be a member of the famed Chute Boxe Academy with Wanderlei Silva and Mauricio Shogun Silva. Anderson is also a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Despite his skills and accomplishments, he is a very humble fighter who believes in the spiritual side of the martial arts.
    B.J. Penn (The Prodigy) : Skilled striker and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black-belt. Former UFC Welterweight champion. He was the first American and non-Brazilian winner of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship in the black belt category. His only Achilles heel is that he can get over confident and not train as well as he should.
    Ken Florian (Kenflo) : Very cerebral fighter. Trained with him at Boston Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Phenomenal Jiu-Jitsu and Thai Boxing skills. Very respectful and follows the spiritual side of the martial arts.
    Genki Sudo : Versatile Japanese fighter with great stand-up and grappling skills. Unpredictable in the ring. Known for pre and post theatrical antics.
    Lyoto Machida (The Dragon) : Japanese Brazilian fighter known as a Karate practitioner but also holds a black-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Held a infamous mystique before fighting in the UFC due to his knockout of Rich Franklin and outscoring B.J. Penn in some other fight promotions. Has a very elusive and defensive style. Hard to hit. Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion.
    Maurício Rua (Shogun) : Shogun is a Brazilian former Pride and UFC Light Heavyweight champion. He is also a former training partner of Wanderlei Silva. He is renowned for his Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Very humble fighter.
    Quinton Jackson (Rampage) : Originally did not like him as a fighter, but he eventually grew on me. Renowned for his powerful amazing wrestling slams. Has really good striking. Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion. Achilles heel is that he is not very well-rounded and depends too much on his striking power.
    Randy Couture (The Natural) : One of the forefathers of wrestling in the UFC. Former UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight champion. Has had the longest career of any fighter. Stays in amazing shape for his age. Very personable and respectful fighter. Adaptable fighting skills.
    Vitor Belfort (The Phenom) : One of the youngest Brazilian fighters in the early days of the UFC. Amazing striking ability. Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion. Black-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
