Politically incorrect MA moment for Black History Month: After dirty-boXing Marvin Estman brain out at last saturday's UFC:
Quentin Jackson: "I love Marvin, you know he's my brother and all, but it was time for some black-on-black violence." I almost fell out of my chair.
For me: Ali. A poet in and out of the ring, and a principled stand on Vietnam: "No viet cong ever called me ******."
"You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."
BJJ wins again!

I'm surprised someone else mentioned him before I did.

Bob Sapp LOL just kidding. Seriously for me its gotta be Anderson Silva and not just because he's flavour of the month. That dude is not big and he doesnt seem too strong but has a ton of heart and trains 6 HOURS A DAY. He's an incredible fighter with a true warrior spirit. He said in an interview that he's been doing MT 15 years and when he retires he might be close to where he wants to be. That's a hell of an attitude. I also like the way he dismantled that prick Leben.

**** where to begin?
My Dad who used to take us out in the backyard and beat the crap out of us.
James Newton (my first offical MA instructor)
Mestre Corvo my first Capoeira teacher
Michael Jai White
Ron Duncan (yeah I know)
Black Panther (Always saw him as a Black Daredevil and Captian America but much cooler)
Xiao Ao Jiang Hu Zhi Dong Fang Bu Bai (Laughing Proud Warrior Invincible Asia) Dark Emperor of Baji!!!
Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Sugar Ray Leonard, Al Thomas (my first Kempo instructor), Julius Baker (first TKD instructor), Chuckie Currie (he had better kicks than all the Korean dudes at the time). Hell, I didn't have an Asian instructor until I was 28, Eric Chen, and he was a Wu Shu guy (I know, I know).
