    Scott Smith
    Melvin Manhoef

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Entertaining. I don't care if they're great or not.

    I would recommend the original UFC tournaments first. Those were truly entertaining. Back when fighters were really dedicated to one particular martial art and not crosstrained, so fights were unpredictable and not homogeneous.

    if you like submission fighters than none have been so far burried in history as The one and Only Mikhail IIlluhinue

    He had some amazing setups for leg submissions and is the master of the Achilles Lock and the "Chin to the Eye"

    Probably just saying that because people call you a homogenean all the time.

    I will pick based on what I think a new person coming to watch MMA for the first time will find entertaining.

    B.J. -- Allot will love his destruction when he was in his prime. Running out of the cage after a win.. licking blood from his gloves ect.

    Tito -- Because he has a few different feuds with background that tells a story and his after fight antics. Plus he fought some other legends that they might of heard of. So they will get to see them as well.

    Brock Lesner --- This would be my first suggestion. Chances are they heard of him. So will have a little more interest in watching someone they heard of over someone they havent. His career is short so they wouldnt have to go through too many fights. Strawberries ... Horseshoe ect. Most will eat that stuff up and want more.

    Last but not least I would recommend watching Bellator 149.

    Bro, anyone can make up a definition and type it out. You're not fooling me.
