    Jessica Andrade, she's pretty much female John Lineker.
    She just goes at everyone with power hooks and picks them up for big slams.

    Gaethje might be my #2 after Matt Brown. If he keeps fighting for a few more years, I think he'll be my favorite. The only fight of his I thought was boring was against Melvin Guillard, but that wasn't totally Gaethje's fault; Guillard was just refusing to engage.

    As for Yan, I don't consider him as much of an action-fighter, but rather a strategic technician. Don't get me wrong; he can be very exciting, especially in his last few fights. However, he's a little slow at the start of a fight while he's building his reads, and he pours it on his opponent in the later rounds.

    Cerrone's up there for me, too. Probably in my top 5 favorite action fighters. Even though he's remembered as an action fighter, he could also be very tactical. Plus, since he had KO power and excellent offensive grappling from top position and off his back, he could finish a fight anytime and any position.

    The scariest ultimate glass cannon. The kind of middleweight who can knockout Mark Hunt on one hand, and then, mid-clinic of amputating Lawler's leg, gets KO'd in the first punch Lawler lands.

    True action

    This is so true. Now there are guys in this forum who want to remember him as a bum. Makes me a little sad, but the guy seems to truly have a good life outside of MMA so good for him.

    He was a Miletich guy. And I'm pretty sure they said he was the hardest hitter there. Just imagine if he had rounded out his game.

    Amanda Ribas - Not really an exciting fighter but still one of my favorites because she’s a sweetheart.

    Petr Yan - Wizard on the feet, always a treat to watch him read and react to his opponents on the fly.

    Vicente Luque - Comes to bang and is utterly fearless.

    Islam Makhachev - Probably the most gifted grappler and the only exciting one in the UFC.

    Dustin Poirier - Best finisher in MMA history.

    Flyweight has couple of my favourites, Royval and Figuieredo. Figgy shit the bed against Moreno, but I hope he has a new coming. Also Luque, Gaethje, Burgos that have already been mentioned.
