If you could create a Frankenfighter — from selected parts of top UFC fighters — what would he be like?

DFW:
• The Jiu-jitsu of Frank Mir.
• The wrestling of Randy Couture.
• The chin of Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell — when Chuck had a chin. That was the thing that made him such an exciting fighter. Great takedown defence, knockout power in both hands and a chin from hell.
• The kicks of Georges St-Pierre.
• The punches of Thiago Alves. He has the knockouts and most knockdowns in UFC history.
• The heart of Frankie Edgar.
• The mental fortitude of Anderson Silva.
• The strategy ability of Randy Couture.
• The old school knees would go to Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua.
• The elbows of Jon ‘Bones’ Jones.

Yeah at first, I'm like what? really? Saying Thiago Alves for punches was worse. There are guys with much better technique and KO power. However, I think saying "the kicks of Georges St-Pierre" is the worst one out of all. One could probably name 20-30 better kickers out there.

Yup. Dana used the amount of knockdowns Thiago has had to support that claim, but some of those have came from knees. Thiago's kicks are definitely better than his hands, and are definitely better than GSP's kicks.

I can get the frank mir jitz comment a bit. The guy doesnt often lose a limb he's gotten ahold of.

my own personal frankenfighter though..

-maia for his jitz. its like watching a guy struggle in quicksand when he gets moving.
-chin or roy nelson. duh. no brainer here.
-anderson's punching. a backstepping jab to end a guy like forrest speaks for itself.
-leg kicks of thiago alves. no comment necessary
-knees of aldo. that turn around knee on mendes was awe inspiring.
-chael's wrestling. yes there are better wrestlers, but I think chael has the best double leg right now
- wandy's attitude. just seems to me that wandy loves everything about the fight game.

i would have to go with-

• The Jiu-jitsu of Demian Mia.
• The wrestling of Josh Barnett- i know its not an obvious choice but he uses it well to get to his submissions/gnp
• The chin of Big Nog (back in the day)
• The kicks of Jose Aldo.
• The punches of Fedor
• The heart of Frankie Edgar.
• The mental fortitude of Fedor.
• The strategy ability of Randy Couture.
• The knees of Overeem.
• The elbows of Jon Jones.

Racist! You want the body of Jon Jones but you don't want to be black!

Even though this version of the perfect fighter is like 8 years old, It is still better than the version Dana made.

He's beaten multiple champions and the top 4 or 5 in his division other than Munoz. Do you mean he doesn't want to give rematches (the Sonnen and Hendo fights) or he doesn't want to fight Bones Jones?

Anderson Silva is great, but to say he hasn't ducked people is crazy. Using the excuse "he already beat them once. why fight them again" is crap. If a vanquished foe works their way back up they deserve a rematch (hughes-gsp 2 proves this point).

Not having some part of Fedor seems biased to me. Cro Cop or Pat Berry over GSP kicks. It's a opinion so so be it, but I liked the perfect fighter pic

Anderson is willing to fight every single fighter Dana White puts in front of him...outside of maybe Jones at 205.

...and that's supposed to illustrate what, exactly?

dana put Maia in front of him, when Maia wasn't even the fifth-best fighter in that weight class. He also allowed soares to discredit the most viable opponents he had at that opportunity.

And he's clearly ducking Jones in favor of fighting Georges.
