    The "American" style - Wrestler who grinds out rounds, has great cardio/athleticism and cage control, not very inventive though.

    Nova Uniao style - Brazilian with creative striking and good jiu jitsu, hard leg kicks but usually shitty cardio

    those are the two most common "breeds" I see in MMA, you prefer to watch?

    Honestly, I like the Sambo sumbission specialists with the odd striking.

    No preference. I like alot of different styles

    I love Fedors smash mouth in your face style but i also love Machidas way the fuck on the outside technical counter style.

    Exciting submission grapplers. Doesn't matter which martial art their background is.

    It's incredibly unwise and dangerous to fight this way but I love Wanderlei's and Diego Sanchez's crazy ass berserker shit.
     
  7. two styles jump to my mind. one is the chute boxe from early to mid 2000s, the other is any sambo based fighter.

    but i do enjoy a wrestler who is well rounded enough to dominate the fight in any area (gsp/weidman)

    I don't care, as long as they're aggressive.

    If you take someone to the wall and are aggressively using elbows and knees, or are on the ground and hammering them with elbows and punches, or aggressively passing guard and moving into sub positions or attempting to sweep it's just as entertaining as a wild swinging fight.

    Watching 2 fighters LnP, or wall stall, or dance around each other for round after round afraid to commit to a combination are all equally crappy to me.

    A finisher, preferably a striker. Right now Joana and conor are my favorite fighters. They both are a level above everyone in terms of striking. They just know how to get to an opponent on their feet and slowly break them down.

    I prefer the black dunking A-level athlete who just jumps over his opponents. They need to be above 6'5 tall, have big biceps and wide-shoulders.

    Of those two styles, I prefer neither. My most preferable is any striker that is at least capable of doing damage and is a not a point fighter, whether they are unskilled brawler, "technical" and "creative" striker.

    What about Frankie Edgar's style?


    Shadow Boxing and some times accidentally hits someone.... but very very very lightly.

    Aggressive and well rounded.....if you're not moving forward..you're losing the fight.

    Most of the fighters I tend to like seem to come from a TMA background at one point or another.
