    What things do you look for that make you really like watching some fighters?

    A fighter that throws a lot of body shots will quickly be a favorite for me to watch. I don't know why that is so satisfying to watch for me but it just is. I've heard luke thomas say he really likes knees to the body of a grounded opponent.. What do you guys look for? Anybody have any weird ones like foot stomps or something?

    I like to watch fighters with the ability to land shots to the head and body effectively in the same combination, not just once during the fight either. Confident and proven strikers like JDS for example.

    I love submission fighters with good takedowns. Guys like the Miller bros, Damian Maia, Jacare. Anyone who attempts to finish their fight really

    I like technical strikers, especially, but that's because I'm a striker myself

    Agressive Machida style fighters. Very tecnical in what they do, very cautious, but explode when the time is right.

    Ever wonder way it is called striking instead of boxing? For it would be an insult to boxers to call what most MMA fighters do boxing.

    Any technical fighter that aggressively pursues the finish, be it on the ground or on the feet. Finishing is not a requirement though, it;s about putting in the effort, that's what my girlfriend tells me anyway

    Fighters who fight. Not the point fighters. I want commitment fron my fighters. Or I wont commit to buying their ppvs.

    I'm a fan of fighters who are aggresive but not reckless, I have a ton more respect for the fighter who looks to finish a fight whether it be by sub or strikes
    I like leg kicks mixed into a fighters game, also wrestlers who finish takedowns instead of getting stuck on the cage halfway through
    Technical striking is another type of fighter I like
    Point fighting is what MMA is turning into which is fine, but guys like Pettis who are pretty damn creative make it much better in my book

    a grappler with slick submission skills and has a cool a personality will always win me over as a fan. guys like sakuraba, fedor, imanair, minoru suzuki, weidman, etc.

    i like strikers too though. guys like manhoef, tyson, duran, andy hug, igor, etc. dudes that go in there and will sit in the pocket and look for the finish. watching guys like lyoto, mayweather, anderson just bug me

    Guys who constantly look for the finish.
    Strikers with great TDD or good guard.
    Wrestlers with power and great ground and pound.

    Aggresive submission grapplers who don't give up.
