    I am a boxing fan first. I've followed MMA since 2010 (because of the video game) and got hooked since. I don't have a problem with the groundgame, but i don't understand everything that goes on down there. Therefore, i find Maia pretty boring when he's not submitting dudes, but i f*cking loved it when he layed on Fitch's back for 15 minutes. I am a Maia fan.

    Other fighters that are considered boring that you love to watch?

    Ben Askren. His fights are hilarious. He kept trying to throw kicks and falling over in his last one.

    There are no such things as boring fighters, boring is subjective to the viewer...

    If I find someone boring than I personally don't like watching them

    Fighters "considered" boring I love to watch... Probably Dominick Cruz

    Apparently my man DC is boring. I think he's incredible, though

    I like all styles be it defensive footwork, solid Jit even good wrestling. What I cant stand is excessive stalling and feeling out that never produces anything.

    I think GSP deserves a mention too. Most called him boring, but he was so good at what he did so i wasn't bored.

    Anyone who managed to sit through a Jared Rosholt fight disagrees.

    Actualy, you are right. Im changing the title.

    Edit: I think we can all agree that Kamaru Usman is one dull fighter tho.

    I've heard people identify Maia and Cruz as boring, personally, I love watching those two guys fight and win.

    I've got a curveball: Jon Jones. Some of his fights weren't thrilling (vs. Rashad Evans, vs. Glover Texeira... ), but I always appreciated watching him work nonetheless.

    Some of the TUF fights...where all this hype is built

    Then the fighters put forth lackluster performances

    Diego vs Leben from TUF 1 was the perfect example of this

    Phil Davis, King Mo, Mighty Mouse, Joe Warren, Will Brooks, Jorge Masvidal (He's considered boring by some), Darren Elkins. Basically, a whole lot of wrestlers. Love me some Usman too.

    He is the only fighter I have ever found to be consistently boring. No matter who he fights, it ends up being a really boring affair. Except for his fight with Oleinik.

    I've started to appreciate Jake Shields more and more, especially with him being active in the sub grappling scene

    Fighters that others think are boring, but I disagree:

    GSP
    Lyoto Machida
    Ben Askren
    Mighty Mouse
    Demian Maia (alright, I agree his last fight was pretty dull)

    Fighter who others think is boring, I agree, but still love to watch:

    Yushin Okami

    Well, I use to love to watch him. But now he is in WSOF and I never watch that for some reason.
