Interesting that Cro Cop wasn't one of your favorite fighters in 2006, but he is today. He was my choice for "Fighter of the Year" in '06.

Interesting idea.

Mine probably would have been like this-

1. Fedor
2. Hughes
3. Liddell
4. Crocop
5. Wanderlei

Now it reads more like this-

1. Fedor
2. Lytle
3. Wandy
4. Carwin
5. Aldo

There are guys I like but any more it seems like I only really get hyped up about those 4 anymore

Jose Aldo is a great pick. One of my top ten


I didnt really follow Cro Cop too much in 2006. His heart, skill, and humbleness have made me a big fan.

You must be watching some mad stacks of old tapes or something, because Salaverry has been retired for a couple of years now.

I have a confession to make: I didn't care about MMA in 2006.
