    I'm just curious to see what kind of mindsets, personalities, and characters sherdog looks up to and respects. Who are the fighters that you think carry themselves thebest and represent the sport of MMA the best?

    We all have different ideologies on what constitutes good character, so I expect diverse answers.

    My answers:
    Demian Maia
    GSP

    Answer will always be..

    Complete dedication to the sport and in his prime utterly dominant in the ring, yet stoic and mellow in the way he presents himself. Personification of a true Mixed Martial Artist..

    He's not my cup of tea, but prospect conor had a lot of admirable traits for sure. He really took the world by the balls and made his wishes come true. I'll give him credit for that.

    If you add Fedor to your list it is complete.

    Demian Maia immediately came to mind.
    And GSP is always a sportsman.

    Khabib for his dedication.

    Conor for his marketing power.

    Machida for the "martial art" aura.

    Rampage for the "I'm a real thug" persona.

    Elias Theodorou for the hairline.

    TJ Jones for representing the sherdogers' lifestyle.

    Great choices, but I must admit that I was expecting "stipe with the immigrant mentality" from you ;)
