Let me preface by saying if you don't like or appreciate martial arts, wrestling, boxing or any other combat sports...don't read or continue.

I'm a fan of the UFC / MMA...I have come to respect it over the last few years, now I consider it one of the premiere sports in the world. The physical conditioning that the fighters have is phenomenal. They must be proficient in several skills to be successful. They don't get paid a lot compared to the big sports, you truly have to love the sport to spend any time in it.

Ray Lewis the linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens trained MMA (mixed martial arts) to increase his conditioning and said it was them most brutal cardio workout he'd ever had.

If you're a fan...feel free to add your favorite fighters to the list, as well as any other descriptions that might help people get a feel for the sport.

Fenced in on all sides by chainlink in the UFC.

Other organizations(Pride, K-1, etc.)use a more traditional boxing type ring.

Wrestling is one of the core skills...and no not the WWE kind.

Many of the best UFC competitors are former all American and/or Olympic wrestlers.

Combines martial arts like Judo...Karo Parisyan is a specialist at this as well as a former Olympic qualifier and four time International Judo Champion.

Brazilian Jui Jitsu is the dominate type of technique right now. The Gracie family of Brazil brought it to the sport and completely changed the face of it forever.

Ground and pound is another effective technique...Matt Hughes does this quite well.

Boxing and striking while standing have been the bread and butter for many fighters...Chuck Liddell is devastating on his feet.

The referee's are tops...one of the reasons there has never been a death or serious life threatening injury in the UFC.

Big John McCarthy is the best ref in the sport...and his tagline is "Let's get it on!" when he starts the fights.

Nothing beats a good slam...this is the best EVAR!

Quinton Jackson shows superhuman strength in this.
