Weidman is just your typical personality less American wrestler (see Cain) with 2 good wins.
No Champ at 170 but Hendricks is an exciting fighter in and out.
Pettis, exciting in the cage not so much out of it.
Aldo same as above.
Barao same as above
Mighty Mouse mostly boring fighter with no personality.
The days of characters in MMA are long gone. The days of Liddel, Tito, Ken, Rampage, Wandy, Shogun are over, and thats just one division once full of great personalities. Even Fedor the cold silent type, theres a huge difference between that and someone like cain who just has no personality and sucks at interviews.
On top of all this , its less a sport and now a career, so guys have to protect their career and so many fighters thesedays fight to the unified rules, fight for points just to get the win and the bonus money. Gone is that love of fighting when guys went to war for $10 now they lay and pray for $10,000.
