I used to watch a lot of UFC but then there was like a string of boring fights and decision fights so I slowed down a lot.. Haven't been watching any UFC at all lately now.

GSP used to be one of my more favourite fighters but he's been really boring to watch lately imo. Anderson silva is still one of my tops, so i'll be watching his next fight for sure. I also like watching jon jones probably because he's pretty young in the sport.

I dunno all the weight classes have fighters that I like but it would probably be featherweight just because its the weight I would fight if I were in MMA lol.

WW.

The guys are the size of bigger normal sized guys in real life (511-6'1, 185-190lbs) so its fun seeing real life guys go at it.
They have the speed of the small guys but the KO power of bigger guys. LW and below, most guys cant hit hard enough.
The talent in the division is like 20 fighters deep behind GSP. (GSP, Condit, Nick, Elenberger, Kampmann, Kos, Sheilds, Hendricks, Rory, Askren, Woodley, Brenneman, Story, Alves, Thiago, etc)

I always thought WW was the most entertaining to watch. Like RRxtar said, they have the speed of the small guys but still the KO power of the bigger guys.
I also find featherweight entertaining since I'm the same size as the fighters, I often imagine myself in the cage even tho I'd get knocked the fuck out
bigger guys - kinda slow, but hard hits that make you go like "OOHH"
smaller guys - more energetic; all-out scrapping makes it more exciting

for me personally i would have to choose light heavyweight or heavyweight. LW was always the best since the first UFC game came out in the big consoles. machida,evans,shogun,chuck liddel,jackson,henderson..... etc. always a huge variety and was entertaining. HW division was very lackluster around the early stages (brock lesnar as champion?...) but recently with the merge of strike force, a lot of heavy weights starting popping up left and right and some new UFC guys like skyscaper, JDS, Cain and nelson started showing how heavyweights are done. Also, the huge knockouts is a big plus in my books.

i do not believe JDS have slow punches but rather a fury of OOHHHHH punches

Lightweight, its such a tight race between every fighter and everyone are cardio beasts who can KO eachother easily, there's no real kingopin at that weight so its fun to see everyone scraping and going for gold!! WW used to be a favourite but it slowed down
