I thought about this because I always hear his name thrown around as being a LHW GOAT, but honestly I think there a good number of guys ahead of him. Here is my list and where he ranks:

1-Jon Jones
2-Shogun Rua
3-Chuck Liddell
4-Rampage Jackson
5-Tito Ortiz
6-Lyoto Machida
7-Randy Couture
8-Rashad Evans
9-Dan Henderson

You know Wand was a longtime champ in Pride, right?
He has to be in the Top 5.

Technically, I think Frank Sham has to be in there too (even if the weight limit was 200 back then). He was undefeated in the UFC, and finished all his opponents, including Tito.

The only one of those I disagree with is Tito, his best wins are LnPing Wanderlei, Mezger and a close decision with Vitor and more recently Bader whilst dropping fights to Frank, Mezger, Randy, Chuck, Machida and Rashad.

I think Lil Nog or Arona are have both have him outdone there, probably Forrest as well.

Frank probably isn't in the top 30 by objective standards, only one good win vs Tito and walked away from the sport just as talent was coming into the division.
