    How many UFC fighters have the samurai spirit and follow the ways of bushido? Who can we consider a new age samurai?

    you mean shutting up, respecting the opponent and not whoring themselves to every endorsement possible to make a quick buck?

    yeah, good luck with that.

    Also I don't see many UFC fighters committing seppuku after a loss, so frankly, I think they all fall short.

    Machida for sure then GSP, but really most fighters have a warrior spirit.

    don't talk about something without first understanding its definition...

    bushido and mindless violence are two different things

    Eight virtues of Bushidō (as envisioned by Nitobe Inazo)

    The Bushidō code is typified by eight virtues:

    Righteousness (義 gi?)
    Courage (勇 yū?)
    Benevolence (仁 jin?)
    Respect (礼 rei?)
    Sincerity (誠 makoto?)
    Honour (名誉 meiyo?)
    Loyalty (忠義 chūgi?)
    Self-Control (自制 jisei?)

    Associated virtues

    Filial piety (孝 kō?)
    Wisdom (智 chi?)
    Fraternal Respect (悌 tei?)

    Machida definitely but GSP? I don't see how he fits that Bushido spirit. He always took the fight where ever he would have the advantage.

    Korean Zombie definitely had it.
