You also have to include Randy Couture, Chuck Liddel, Matt Hughes, Fedor, and Nogeria (big nog). Some good up and comers are Andrei Arloski, Georges St Pierre, and Karo Paryisan.

I love Carlos Newton, but he hasn't fought in so long he shouldn't be officially ranked in anyone's top ten these days. But a great fighter just the same.

chuck lidell is an excellent kickboxer. i like andrei arlovsky pity what pedro rizzo did to him - who is also an amazing kickboxer but just takes a while for him to get rhythm in his fights. crocop is something else, his basic techniques are near perfect, distancing, timing, intelligent. i would really like to see crocop and rizzo go at it, surely a KO unless both become reluctant to close in because of each fighter's KO. unlikely because of contracts

I tend to like the smaller, more technical fighters (though I do like some of the big boys too, ie, Couture, Arlovski). I like St. Pierre, Doerksen and particularly Karo Parisyan! Those guys make for VERY exciting fights to watch.

Matt Hughes, Tank Abbot (I cant help it- he will always rule even though his time is over), St. Pierre, Arlovski, Couture (as fighter and ambassador to the sport), Liddell.
Also Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonner for that fight.

Fighters I dislike the most: Ortiz- poor winner, poor loser and boring as hell IMO. Baroni- exciting to watch but a jerk to listen to. Cabbage- I dont see anything skillfull or impressive in being a resilient punching bag.

tito ortiz - he deosnt really show much technique at all, surely not a good fighter to watch if looking to pick up useful techniques other than using the fence and being big for his weightclass. i liked the match with lidell after tito always called chuck out and got what came to him
