Every MMA fan can rattle off a number of guys who instantly draw them to an event. But what about the guys who go unnoticed that help support the foundations of each promotion with their work inside and out of the cage?
The "blue collar" type of fighters if you will.
Some of these fighters bust their chops each night to bring you the best they have inside the cage and make sure you leave feeling like you wisely spent your hard earned money. Others meanwhile can conjure up a media storm like no other with their actions out of the cage and perhaps will be most missed when the microphone goes away.
Most of these fighters won't be superstars during their careers (a few are or have been) but that's okay, because they can end their careers knowing that MMA fans will miss them as they miss all superstars.
