In the sport of mixed martial arts, it seems fighters are destined to one of two personality types.
A fighter can either choose to be respectful, humble and the ultimate professional as he works his way to the top of his division, or he can choose to be an arrogant, disrespectful representation of all that is brash about the sport.
For some fighters, talent alone can not take them to the top, so they rely on this cockiness as a crutch to ensure their promotional standing.
In honor of these great trash-talking, button-pushing warriors, I propose the following slideshow.
Click on to see who kicks off our list.
Phil Baroni: Baroni is not a current UFC fighter, but you have to mention him when talking about cocky fighters.
Donald Cerrone: Like MacDonald, Cerrone is also working his way to the list.
Dan Hardy: Once a shoo-in, Hardy has cooled off his cocky persona a bit in recent fights.
Tito Ortiz: Only retirement can keep him off the list.
