BobbyBigLug - 

Scott Jorgensen was born in Utah, but I don't think he ever took a fight while living or training here.  I think he took all or the majority of his fights while living in Idaho.   


I'd give utah to court or siler for current UFC fighters.

EighNullSects - This list needs to be changed, Keith Jardine is neither the baddest man in Montana nor a guy who trains in Montana. If anything he is a New Mexico guy.


Our baddest man in the state is Lloyd 'Cupcake' Woodard.

uratoker2 -  How can Faber be ranked above either of the Diaz brothers in Cali? Phone Post

This.
Because he has arguably accomplished more.

But Hendo > either Diaz bro and Faber. Phone Post
Exactly this. Hendo is the fucking man. Phone Post

Another Foob - Re: FL - I like Alex Caceres as much as the next guy, but it's kinda crazy to put him ahead of Jonathan Brookins, considering he won the season of TUF they shared.

Assuming we don't count any of the guys at ATT or Blackzilians, I think Tom Lawlor or Ben Saunders would top the list. "Crazy Horse" is pretty good too. :)
Brookings is from Oregon i think one of his parents live in Ocala and he went to school in Missouri, and Tom is from RI... Phone Post

Ah, I didn't know that. As has been touched on, I guess it's hard to know what the criteria is for saying where a fighter is "from". I always make a note of fighters that are introduced as fighting "out of" Florida. As I recall, that's how Brookins and Lawlor were introduced on TUF. But, it really should depend on where the fighter considers themselves from, I guess.

I think the guy at bleacher report is a little man or likes little men. whats with the lack of LHW's & HW's on this list. Mediocre HW's can kill MM or Cruz.

Indiana-All time is Torres, right now it's broke Fitch.

We've also got arguably the most exciting fighter in mma history from our state.

Herman, Bonnar, Duffee, and McCorkle also Indiana born Phone Post

John Salter is a good fighter, but here in Alabama Walt Harris is the best. Look for him to make waves in the UFC HW division soon.

Alumynabjj - Demetrius Johnson is not a Kentuckian. Stupid that he was chosen.


Johnson grew up in Parkland, Washington where he attended Washington High School and was a stand out athlete in Track, Wrestling and Cross Country. In wrestling, he would go on to place 3rd and 2nd in state his junior and senior year. He participated in Track and Cross Country to improve his cardio for Wrestling. He competed at the State Championships in Track and Cross Country as well.
Shhh dont correct that one.
If they don't "give" us DJ then we're gonna be stuck with Junie Browning representing Kentucky... Phone Post

As much as I like Brookins as a person, I think Alex is way more gifted as an athlete and is a champion in the making if he makes the right decisions.  Everyone he trains with raves about him and how easily he picks up everything. I am also proud they chose him because he represents Miami. Anyway, I might also have gone with Ben Saunders.

 

 

But yeah, we have ATT and the Blackzilians here, so this list is based on where someone was born or where the live now?  In that case, we have Rashad, The Reem, the list is countless.

They must just ignore where everyone actually grew up and lived and just go by where they're born. I've known DJ since middle school, he moved to Tacoma while he was in elementary school, but I totally get you being okay with claiming him over Junie haha...
