    Good Hump-Day, Sherbros!

    Who is your favorite action fighter of all time? He/she might not have been the most talented or most accomplished, and maybe they're not even your favorite fighter, but you watched their fights because you wanted to see action and they delivered more often than not!

    For me, it's got to be Matt Brown. Not my favorite fighter, nor was he ever my favorite welterweight, but he was always exciting, win or lose.

    I have a few, especially in 145 and up

    But for the smaller guys, Jon Lineker always delivered for me.

    Well luckily for me Fedor embodies all of the above! Never a dull moment in his fights

    I agree, Sam Stout doesn't get talked about enough, but he had a ton of really exciting fights in his day. I think one of the biggest "What ifs..." in the sport is how he, Hominick, and Horodecki might've done had their coach not passed away when all of them were in their prime years.

    Speaking of Hermes

    I'm a big Fedor fan, and he did have a lot of exciting fights, but some of his earlier fights weren't that visually pleasing. I can't remember any specific matches; they were before my time and he had a lot of fights.

    As for Florian, I know that he's become a bit of meme in recent years, but he was a really exciting fighter. The only times I remember when he was boring were when he would get stalled out on the ground by stronger wrestlers.
