    Not that it's necessarily one or the other, but if you were a UFC fighter would you rather be known as a cerebral, strategic fighter who usually follows a solid gameplan, or a warrior who always comes to bang and finish the opponent or "die" trying? Also, which do you tend to root for more often? Examples:

    Tacticians -

    Econoreem
    Jones
    Bisping
    Woodley
    GSP
    UFC Aldo
    Cruz
    MM
    Holm

    Killers -

    Cain
    Rumble
    Wand
    Lawler
    Ferguson
    Gaythje
    Lineker
    Ronda
    Zingano

    Chess or checkers? :D

    Controlled Agression Shogun is always the right answer.

    I would rather be a killer e.g. Artem Lobov

    The art of war says: caution in planning, boldness in action.

    So the ideal would be both, at the appropriate times.

    Every since his "Tactical" match against Nick Diaz, he has lost a fan here. We were denied a massive bloodbath by his Greg Jackson running man strategy. Natural born what?

    Killers are going to be crapping in a diaper in a few years. I'd rather be super technical and tactical.

    Elements of both would be the way to go. Tacticians usually a wider array of ways they can win and not sustain as much damage getting there. Killers though when they have success and are on a roll can move up the ranks quick and garner some mass fan appeal. I'm more partial to the tactician as a fan and would go that route if I was pro-fighter.

    I'd be tactical AF and bore the shit out of you guys guaranteed.

    I don't want to be punched in the face, so positional grappler for sure!

    When done right, both styles are a thing of beauty, and to me, a perfect example is Lawler getting his legs destroyed for a round by Manhoef, only to land one perfect KO strike.

    When done wrong, it's incredibly frustrating: Hendo / Roy Nelson / Sicilia winging their overhand bombs from a mile away, neither killing their opponent nor getting killed. GSP / Maia / dominating someone on the ground for 15-25 minutes without ever going for the finish.
