    EXCEPTIONS

    Frank Mir is cool, he is articulate and entertaining.

    Josh Barnett is awesome although he hasn't had any fights in the UFC yet. Roy Nelson is also cool. Generally though they are dull, dull, dull.

    Velasquez must be the least charismatic champion ever. JDS is also boring as f*ck. Lately I know he's started trying to shed his 'nice guy' image and talk some sh*t and to be fair that was an improvement but really, he's still about as charismatic as a punchbag. Trying to hype the Velasquez/JDS rematch, I was excited about it for the fight's sake, but I wasn't really getting hyped about the plot.

    Here's the top 10:

    Cain Velasquez - DULL
    Junio Dos Santos - DULL
    Alistair Overrem - mediocre
    Fabricio Werdum - mediocre
    Daniel Cormier - interesting!
    Frank Mir - cool
    Antonio Nogeuiera - dull, maybe more interesting to Brazilians
    Bigfoot Silva - likeable, but not interesting
    Josh Barnett - entertaining
    Mike Russow - boring

    I hate Ronda Rousey and she is overpromoted, however at least the UFC is making a good effort to make her interesting and get people involved. I'm not talking about turning the UFC into the WWF but I just wish the HW division could get a bit more interesting and involving with the fighter's personalities and feuds and stuff.

    It's almost as if charisma and wit have nothing to do with fighting MMA

    I think Rorry Mac and Carlos Condit are two of the most boring personalities out there. At least they are exciting to watch. I never want to hear another interview from them again.

    Cormier, "interesting!"? Do you have a crush on him or something?

    Werdum mediocre? Werdum's the most entertaining guy in the history of mankind. He's the type of person who'd go to Bangkok, bang a tranny and then laugh about it with his buddies. In short, Werdum's awesome!

    Dana said GSP is the "p4p" biggest PPV draw and his personality is pretty bland.

    Calling Werdum mediocre is such a dull thing to say.

    TS, J'accuse you of being dull
