    Basically guys like Gaethje, or Artem, or anyone who just likes to block punches with their face for the sake of an exciting fight.

    I like aggressive wrestling, striking, and submissions.

    Korean zombie is another one. Or Chris Leben.

    Not a reckless lack of care for your own health.

    You like aggressive STRIKING.

    You realize that aggressive striking leaves you open to getting hit as well right?

    Contradictory statement to make.

    i am pretty sure nobody likes being punched in the face, And they sure don’t let their opponents do it for our entertainment.

    They believe their durability will allow them to deliver fight-ending strikes without being finished themselves
    Its a strategy, sort of

    I know what you're getting at, and yes Gaethje will be all sorts of fucked up by the time he's done, but how the hell can you not love that guy? He's the definition of exciting and tough.

    You must be one of the MMA snobs who pretends he loves the deep intricacies of one watching guys roll around for 15 minutes with their balls on each other faces

    Did you watch Gaethje vs Barboza? Justin actually had a really good game plan in that fight.

    supreme efficiency is something to marvel at but almost everyone values displays of heart and will over skill.
