POLL: Who Is The Most Exciting UFC Fighter Right Now?

  • Cub Swanson , Weidman, Chael, RUa, all WW division.

  • few weeks ago everybody would have voted for anderson who in my opinion is STILL the most exciting fighter.

  • Rory macdonald, nurmagemedov, cub Swanson, glover texeira, jon jones… Plenty of exciting fighters in the UFC now.

  • Nurmagomedov**

  • Anderson is still by far the most exciting because he does things that nobody else does and yes there are other fighters who do exciting stuff but not to his level and while risking that exciting style held a belt longer than anyone. Outside of him there are many other great and exciting fighters. Urijah Faber, Jon Jones, Rua, Pettis, Condit, Maia recently, Hendricks, Munoz, Weidman, Zombie, Aldo, Wanderlei, Big Country, Cain, Junoir, Joe Lauzon,Jim Miller, Cerrone, Bendo, Benevidez, Eric Silva, Glover, Diaz Brothers, Sanchez, Belfort, Dan Henderson, Conor McGregor, Michael Johnson, Overeem, Werdum, Rockhold, Josh Thompson, all come into mind and I am sure if I thought a bit more there would be a few others but nobody captures the excitement title like Anderson Silva. He's the one guy I know that makes some guys tune in that normally wouldn't watch UFC never mind pay for it. When he is fighting I make sure I see it all live and I make sure long before the fight happens that I am free and have no other interfering things going on. Lets just say if Jon Jones, Fedor, Anderson and GSP were all fighting the same time live it would be Anderson stealing the spotlight and the rest would be watched on replay although I make a great deal of effort to not miss those guys either.

  • Obviously still Anderson Silva….. he's still does the most "exciting" sh*t. That 1 loss doesn't change anything.

    @Rory how come there's not Cub or Pettis on the list? When you talk about the most "exciting", it's hard not to mention them. Also the Alpha Males been WRECKING SH*T lately… in a VERY exciting fashion!!!

  • Have to go with shogun always puts it all on the line, and that fight he had with hendo insane!

  • Anderson Silva or Joe Lauzon without a doubt! I went for Lauzon

    Even though hes only had one fight in the UFC, Conor McGregor will be one of the most exciting fighters in the future.

  • The poll was "right now" so I dont see how some of these other guys are being picked.

  • Spider and Zombie from the list, Pettis and Jones also. They are all top-level fighters who can use a techniques or moves creatively.

  • Can't believe Aldo hasn't been mentioned. I love watching that guy fight, especially in his WEC days.

  • Georges St. Pierre, anyone?

  • Anthony Pettis , Donald Cerone, Vitor Belfort, Gilbert Melendez, Cub Swanson, Conor McGregor, TOO MANY!

  • I would say Anderson followed by Cain…It is alwasy crazy watching the HW title on the line…dont know why but it is crazy!!!

  • I picked your poll….dont slap me

  • Silva, lying on his back KO'd like the A$$ clown that he is. Very exciting!!

  • Who the frak is Frakie Edgar??

  • If Fitch is still in the UFC he would have my vote…..buahahahahahaha

    • Fitch is a guy who makes every other fight on the card exciting. He was a necessary evil.

  • Fedor Emelianenko .. 😉

  • Wandy, Rua, Aldo, Cub, Luazon annnnd Breittany Palmer, damn those as$

  • i guess GSP couldnt dry hump his way into the list haha

    a lot of these guys are pretty exciting.. about a third are standard.
