Self explanatory. I tried to make this as honest as possible; looking back at the past year or two of fights (which ones I HAD to see, which ones I could skip.) 1. Anderson Silva* This one has an asterisk next to it, because I'm hoping he'll come back at least in some percentage of his former self. Love him or hate him, an Anderson Silva fight is always an event. You never know what's going to happen. 2. Dan Henderson Henderson has made a career of KOing people who look like they should handle him on paper. Though his strategy is predictable, the outcome rarely is. Take his last fight with Shogun; a fight in which he was clearly getting the worse of things until there was a weird little scramble from the clinch, and BAM. Fight over. That's what makes him so compelling to watch. 3. Anthony Pettis Young, cocky, and cool. Some of the most unorthodox and technical striking you'll ever see, he may truly be the next great champion. He always looks aeons above his competition standing up, and he's demonstrated a scary submission game to go with it as well. 4. Ronda Rousey Her undefeated streak naturally builds more intrigue with each passing fight. Will this be the one she loses? Nope. Not yet anyway. WMMA has produced some great fights and some marquee personalities over the past couple years, and Ronda's at the top of the list. She embraces a heel identity, and whether people want to admit it or not: she's pretty hot for being the most badass woman in the world @135 lbs. 5. Vitor Belfort Fireworks are always guaranteed with Vitor. He turned into an absolute terror after his Feb 2011 loss to Anderson, losing only once since then on a short notice fight at LHW with Jon Jones (After nearly breaking his arm). TRT controversy looms over his career like a dark cloud right now, but ask yourself: Is there ANYONE who Vitor wouldn't make an interesting opponent for? edit: honorable mention to Wand, Pat Barry (no longer UFC), and Matt Mitrione. They always put on entertaining fights.
