Your favorite fighter no one talks about

Post by Kinosis on Thu Jul 14, 2016 11:17 pm

I thought we could do a fun topic. Who is a fighter you like to watch that doesn't/didn't seem to get a lot of hype (never talked about as a legend). Mine is Cung Le. I think they guy is way underestimated. He went 17-0 in Sanshou and was old when he got into MMA (somewhere around 34). He only lost 3 fights and all of them were after having a long layoff where his cardio seemed to hurt him. He beat Frank Shamrock to win the Strikeforce MW title and KO'd Rich Franklin after Franklin had just beat Wanderlei Silva twice and KO'd Chuck Liddell in the first round. Even his loss to Bisping wasn't that bad as Bisping, a short time later) beat Anderson Silva and KO'd Rockhold in the first round.

Cung Le is a good one.

I'd have to go with Vitor and Lawler. They get a lot of hype now but I was following them even during the lows of their careers.

How about guys from back when relatively small promotions could have top fighters? Also consider a lot of those guys have been written out of history because the promotions they fought in don't get mentioned anymore. Take for example former #1 LW Henry Matamoros who spent most of his career in Extreme Challenge and HooknShoot.

Damn, HooknShoot was such a promotion and people seem to have forgotten about it.

^Those are good ones. Yeah, Frank Shamrock should get more attention for his accomplishments.
