    Has there been a super slick fighter with relentless shit talking, crazed behavior and yet...never seriously trained and yet won lots of fights?

    I know I am asking for a lot but curious to know if there was some freak talent in the dark ages of UFC or MMA that was known for having freak talent?

    EDIT:

    This crazy asshole is the closest thing to Bryan Hawk, maybe even more over the top considering his exploits outside the MMA.

    He is now retired and suffering from punch phobia.

    First.
    Love this thread.

    Second.
    My guess would be Mayham Miller or Jon Jones.

    Then I'd take Overeem (Übereem version) as Takamura. Douchebag with great talent and a killer in his prime.

    I know, its a shame since if he trained he would have been a beast. It would be cool to see him have a conventional boxing style+ his unorthodox style.

    But now he is this:

    He is a natural street brawler and displays one of the more bloodthirsty antagonistic attitudes seen in the series, to the point where he can easily classified as a sadist. When in a fight, he displays an ecstatic love of violence and killing characterized by a sudden 'burning' in his body that can only be pacified with continued violence to the point where he either knocks out, cripples or even kills his opponent or sexual intercourse with women.

    I know Dan Quinn is bat shit crazy but was he crazy talented?


    You are right!!!

    Jon Jones is a great choice, he trains but not crazy, is in to drugs and goes through women. He has the talent and some work ethic to allow himself to get familiar with the nature of MMA but not a crazy hard worker.

    Difference is, Jon Jones pretends to be classy and Hawk is DGAF about.

    Was Miller a crazy talented guy? I thought he was in to jujitsu but lacked striking?

    He was really talented in his beginning. But he never took it serious enough to take it to the next step.

    Nicely put!

    Imagine what an awesome force of nature he could have become if he learned strict conventional boxing like Ricardo Lopez/Martinez while still retaining his style. He could switch from conventional to unconventional + his non-trained stamina is on par with a world class boxer, if he trained, he would be a freak of nature!

    Not much insight is given to the audience on Ricardo's past.

    He seemed like he got hand speed but for sure he is pretty crazy but in a disturbing way. He does YouTube videos and in one of the videos he had his mom while driving in a car and saying how much of a piece of shit she is. She kept saying that she made a mistake and that she feels bad but he kept going off.

    It was weird since he is already middle age at best and yet acting like a resentful teenager.


    I just assumed he had the same past as his real life counter part which is Ricardo Lopez who was an obsessed perfectionist who came from a modest but happy family.

    Never, but you're right, if MMA needs one thing right now, it's more birds.

    Way too many loses to be a Bryan Hawk. Don't get me wrong, he is talented and has epic takedowns but his record is too horrible otherwise you would have been right.
