My Personal MMA Heroes:
I. Caol Uno (He got me into JMMA/MMA and I love his techiques when it comes to the ground, it's pretty slick and very technical. His rematch with BJ Penn was pretty amazing as he was able to use his technically abilities to score a Draw.)
II.Genki Sudo (He brought excitement to MMA with his elaborate ring entrances and overall a very entertaining fighter, I believe if he didn't retire he would've been in WEC or the UFC as he was very unorthodox in his stand-up and submissions.)
III. Hideo Tokoro (The most exciting fighter from Japan as he puts on great fights and never gives up, he at one point was poor before getting to MMA, but once he got into it he was able to turn his life around.)
VI. Michihiro Omigawa (Despite going 4-7-1 early in his career, he never gave up and made the greatest achievement by becoming number 3 featherweight in the world [by Fightmatrix], at one point he had the best technical boxing as a featherweight.)
JMMA Fan (mostly)!

Haha fair enough. Obviously you don't troll that much if you enjoy the articles and respect the writers. I see you are a soccer fan as well? I'm a big Arsenal FC fan!
Glad you enjoy them! It looks like you are new to Bleacher Report. There are a lot of stupid people who comment stupid things, but a lot of the articles here are great!
Thanks for the fan add! Appreciate it.
Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Sadly there's a lot of people quick to call bias at anything they disagree with. There's a new edition in the series every weekend, so keep an eye out and I hope you carry on enjoying them. =)
Thanks for the fan add!
