    Just read about Demian and it remembered about his fight against Carlos Condit. Both Guys are up there as my favorites. I was thinking about Demian's title shot and ended suppoting him, but it still broke my heart seeing Carlos completely dominated like that.

    Now I'm expecting the same feeling about Frankie Edgar x Korean Zombie. I'm a bigger fan of Frankie than I am of Zombie, but I really want to see both guys fight for the title. The problem is if Brian Ortega become the champion, it will be harder for Frankie get the shot. So, I really want to support Frankie (possible) last run for the title, but I'm afraid he kicks Korean Zombie back in the line and end up without title shot. This one is more difficulty to me I guess.

    Have you felt the same about a fight?

    Tank Abbott vs Don Frye was probably the first one I was conflicted in who I wanted to win the fight now that I rack my brain.

    Thompson vs Till. Wanted to see a new challenger (with good striking), but as someone who grew up doing Karate, I love seeing guys make it work in mma.

    Really with the exception of Colby, I find all the top ww's to be really easy to root for.

    Almost every fight ever.

    Right now it’s Hunt - Oleinik. Although I’d be happier with a Hunt.

    In the past; Couture - Big Nog (although that one worker out perfectly and both guys fought like bad asses in a close decision)

    Hunt vs Mir

    And especially Mark Bocek vs Joe Brammer. That one killed me!
