    Thinking about Machida retiring is really uncomfortable. Worse yet, is if he goes out like a lot of the brazillians do, after a few brutal ok losses from guys he would have danced around in his prime.

    Cain V. the HW division will never be the same. He's the dominant force there. Once he leaves it will be a mediocre division once again.

    Thanks to TommyToeHold, I will now forever think of Lyoto as the guy who pretended to be Ryu from Street Fighter (and did it successfully).

    Man, I'm gonna miss Ryoto. And Anderson as well...

    2nd on ManBearPig. Win or lose, he either does his best to KO or sub the other guy, or goes out on his shield.

    Manhoef. There are few people in the sport today that when they step into the ring or cage you know the fight is going to end violently, one way or the other.

    It would be bittersweet. Watching him from TUF 2 to his final fight (whenever that is) would be an honor. Future HOFer.

    Surprised more people haven't said Anderson. The UFC is weird enough without him as champ. Other than him I would say Aldo, the Korean Zombie, and Wanderlei.

    For me it was Fedor.

    I thought I would be sad when GSP retired, but I was strangely ok with it. I guess I was glad he retired as champ. Plus it was nice that I got to watch his career from start to finish
