    No particular order

    1.Elias Theodoreau
    His fight form is extra loosy goosey, similar to what a wet chicken would look like fighting (actually no, Keith Jardine fits this description even better). I'd go as far as to say he has a femenine way of throwing punches and moving his hips for kicks. His strikes don't snap. At all.

    2. Dom Cruz
    It works for him but it's frustrating because he dances and prances all around with his energy-wasting, pillow fisted, lack-of-1-punch ko having style. Has the body shape of a ferrit, long trunk with droopy ass shoulders, no lats. Just like Reyes aka crash bandicoot.

    3. Cindy Dandois
    She has the graceful movement of female C-3PO. Typical soccer mom form, hair style, everything. Her pomp hairdo jumps every time she gets jabbed similar to a Mike Tysons punch out opponent (glass Joe). In between ufc fights you can find her trying to earn her blue belt, practicing armbars from the mount on little kids in her thin ass cheap cotton white begginers' Gi (training with many more like her in your typical mid western T. M. A Mcdojo.)

    4. Alex Oleynik
    Hurky jerky old man style with no finesse. Movement seems labored, + has ugly hay maker boxing. If you ever wondered what a human sloth would look like fighting, just watch one of his recent fights. In fact not only does he share the same slow muscle fibers, but his metabolism is so slow that he risks dying from a heart attack if he throws any faster.

    5. Nico price
    Looks like a hangman/stick figure fighting with that awkward frame and extra pointy elbows and clavicles. Basically a coat rack. Moves around as if every limb on his body had a life of its own and he needs to concentrate extra hard to coordinate his movement. Phil Davis was also born with a stick figure body by the way. Beyond this you start getting into the praying mantis/humanoid hybrid club which fighters like Megan Anderson and Chase Hopper belong to.


    Honorable mention to
    Stiff Glover, Keith 'Purdue Chicken' Jardine, napoleon dynamite-duck walking Ben baby shark Askren, Clay 'the diabolic energizer thrasher bunny' Guida, Ben 'failed supervillain' Rothwell, Cody 'weekend warrior' McEntire, Chase 'screech' Hopper, tippy toe Penn, Kyle 'your VERY average high school jock' Kingsbury, Jeff 'THE ANARCHIST manlet' Monson, and I'm sure I left out many wmma fighters but who cares right



    Y'all may not be the most artistic and visually pleasing fighters to watch, but hey....






    ... This buds for you

    Peak Jardine with that herky jerky stuff looked hella ugly. Guida had some weird footwork going on at one point. He stopped that though. Jake Shields stiffness was hard to watch.

    And honestly, when Dom's style doesn't work, suddenly it looks awful. Like his fights with Cody and Henry. Same with Holly.

    And a bunch of mid level wmma fighters.

    Agreed with Elias, and I'll throw Sam Alvey up there too. Incredibly slow and one dimensional counter puncher, but had enough power in the both hands to make guys nervous to run in on him, so he was almost always in shitty fights.

    I love Nate, but he’s embarrassingly uncoordinated at times.

    Rin Nakai shadow boxing against Tate (I couldn't find the gif)

    Not UFC but former Bellator LHW champ Emanuel Newton was tough to watch (the guy who beat King Mo twice)

    Crocata and it isn't even close.

    Give his fight with Luke Cummo a Google'. Its absurd and the commentary was classic.
