UFC Stars Ranked In Tier System Based On Their PersonalityRyan Sidle in UFC

Ranking UFC stars on their actual ability is all well and good. SPORTbible’s own Adnan Riaz gave it a go, but what about the thing that really matters, their personality?

When it comes to the fight game, be it MMA or boxing, how well you can sell yourself, and the fight you’re in or want to be in, is almost as important as your ability.

Often if you can’t get yourself into a position where people want to see you hurt someone or get hurt then you won’t get the big pay days on pay-per-view. So who in UFC is the top and who is at the bottom for their personality?

One Reddit user gave it a go, and there’s no surprise to see Conor McGregor at the top of the pile:

Usually with these tiers the categories go from ‘G.O.A.T’ to ‘Trash’ or something like that. But unfortunately this time it’s just ranked S-F, no idea what the S is for.

S: Conor McGregor

A: Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, Khabib Nurmagomedov

B: Jon Jones, Israel Adesanya, Ben Askren, Daniel Cormier

C: Jeremy Stephens, Anderson Silva, Max Holloway, Michael Bisping, Chael Sonnen, Ariel Helwani

D: Anthony Pettis, Derrick Lewis, Paige VanZant, Henry Cejudo, Tony Ferguson

UFC Stars Ranked In Tier System Based On Their Personality

published ata year ago

The problem with ‘The Notorious’ being top of the list is that we’ve not been able to enjoy him in the octagon for some time and without a fight to sell, he’s not been as visible in the sport out of the cage either.

The Irishman did return to action on January 19th against Donald Cerrone, but he ‘retired’ from the fight game in June, although he is expected to come up against Dustin Poirier at some point next year.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, who also retired after his last bout against Justin Gaethje, is another fighter who features on the list, as rumours continue to swirl as to whether he will return.

UFC’s other top personalities include Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, who met last year for the BMF title, with Masvidal coming out on top, and we’d happily see them face off again, especially if they let their personalities fly the way they did their strikes.

Who is the most entertaining fighter in UFC?

Let us know in the comments.

Serie A leaders Milan are one of Europe’s hottest soccer teams. Is their form sustainable?

A lot of American soccer fans only dove fully into European club soccer when the Premier League started showing up live on their television about a decade ago. These fans have only heard about AC Milan; they have not yet seen the storied club in full flight.

Like college football’s USC Trojans, Milan are glamorous and dominant when piloted by just the right leader, finicky and mediocre in a less capable set of hands. They have won more Champions League/European Cup titles than anyone besides Real Madrid, but it has been 13 years since they last made even a semifinal. Hell, it has been more than six years since they played a Champions League match at all. Since finishing third in Serie A in 2013, their average league finish has been 6.9. Fishy signings, faulty ownership, poor managerial hires and Financial Fair Play violations conspired to hold them back.

Milan have enjoyed a fantastic run of quality signings, however, and damned if their results haven’t actually been encouraging for once. Since the summer’s coronavirus restart, the Rossoneri have yet to lose in league play — they’ve won 14 league matches with four draws and a 49-17 scoring margin. They are first in Serie A through six matches, and their core stats say this isn’t a lucky start.

They’re also 5-1 in Europa League play, qualifying for the group stage with wins over Shamrock, a spry Bodo/Glimt and Rio Ave in a shootout; they’ve won group games over Celtic and Sparta Prague. (They hosted Lille on Thursday, losing 3-0 to take a tiny bit of shine off their run.) And they’ve done all this while battling the temporary loss of key players such as goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and ageless striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to positive COVID-19 tests.

It’s fun to write about an old power that looks like a power again, but is this rise sustainable?
