    I was forced to respect Bork after he hung in there against Carwin and then pulled off a sub victory of all things.

    Nog in almost every fight he was in,
    Nog vs Sapp
    Nog vs Sylvia
    Nog vs Emelienenko (all of them)
    Nog vs Barnett
    Nog vs Dump truck , got runover or hit by a dump truck when he was a little kid, wasnt supposed to live, when he awakens he wasnt supposed to walk, when he started walking he started training bjj
    and the rest is history

    Could be just the nude photo's I saw talking. But I was impressed with Miesha's heart against Holm big time.

    Fujita. Absurd what he could endure.. Huge knees to the head etc...

    Basically most of the Japanese fighters are crazy on the ground, they just dont wanna tap.:guys like Shoji. Matsui, Otsuka, Inoue...

    People can hate on the decision, hate in Fedor and say it should have been stopped....But 40 year old shell of Fedor vs Maldonado was one of the greatest displays of heart I have seen.


    Also: nogueira vs Sapp, crocop
    Sakuraba vs Smirnovas, Galesic, Arona

    I think for the most part we take Fedors heart for granted, because of his dominance. I remember watching him always fight through adversity and expecting it, he always did show heart no matter what you may think of him

    ts, out on the feet means not getting knocked down.

    Edgar could barely get to his feet. And when he did, he got knocked down again.

    Then somehow he forgot all about it and slammed Maynard in the next round.

    This shit was off a superhero comic
