    Yesterdays main event and Bisping's show of heart got me thinking, who are some of the other fighters with p4p heart and tenacity? Regardless of if theyve been finished or not in their career, im talking in terms of how difficult it is for their opponent to finish them. Off the top of my head ive got:

    Diego
    Hunt
    JDS
    Condit
    Lawler
    Diaz bros
    Matt Brown
    Faber
    Barao (took a ton of punishment in both TJ fights before getting TKOd)
    Forrest
    Aldo ate some bombs from Mendes as well and stayed in the fight, I believe Edgar and Lamas clipped him a few times as well but i havent seen those fights in a while

    who else?

    People have suffered severe wear and tear to the hands putting cabbage away.

    Takes years off your hands useful life.

    The lack of Frankie Edgar in the OP (okay, you mentioned him in reference to Aldo, but if anything that makes his exclusion from the list even more unacceptable) is disturbing.

    Please Forrest was not hard to put away. Know the rest of your list is solid. I believe Rampage and Tate.

    His match against Tim Sylvia was absolutely incredulous to watch, as i had thought this was the single worst beating i ever seen by one man against another....that is until i saw Sakuraba take an endless assault under the hands of Ricardo Arona.

    only towards the end of his career when he got chinny, he was notorious for his heart earlier on. ate some bombs from rampage and shogun in their first fight

    Bisping has been finished spectacularly a few times but he's a game fighter.

    Werdum has grossly underrated durability. Everyone expects him to fold like a lawn chair.

    He had heart but was put away by Jardine and suga and there not known for power or putting away fighters. I don't think he was chinny till the second shogun fight.
