    Artem. He just exudes so much confidence it almost makes you believe he could be better than his below average self.

    Had high hopes for him. Always root for the good guys.

    Wait... what doesn't count as very good? never touched the belt? never had a title shot?

    Let me add Dollaway and Jardine in there.

    @Dingaling 's dingaling likes Dern! ;)

    I enjoy watching Clay Guida fight, but he is the definition of mediocre.

    Say what you want about Artem but he is definitely a very tough guy....He took a beating against Swanson and still made it to the final bell, and being McGregor's training partner for as long as he has sure as hell isn't easy on the body...

    And people can say what they want about CM Punk but I have a soft spot for the guy...I admire anyone who's willing to go after their dreams and not give up on themselves. I might get heat for that but I don't really give a shit.

    Was always a fan of journeyman Tony Lopez and former Strikeforce fighter Conor Huen. Conor was good on the mat but was always fighting hurt and Lopez is the classic journeyman who takes any and all fights every few weeks.

    The Kimbo fight was fun stuff

    I enjoyed the random Roger Bowling/Bobby Voelker 3 fight series in Strikeforce

    I will forever love the Ashikan Judan (10th Dan of leglocks) Masakazu Imanari (notable win over over young Mike brown by tearing his kneecap). Had some championships in his day in lower promotions but we all know he would not be able to succeed at the highest levels
