With that said:
Robbie Lawler and Mark Hunt are excellent choices.

Shogun going from the p4p, to getting tapped by Forrest, looking mediocre against Coleman, then eventually winning the LHW title one last time was pretty impressive.
I agree with Shogun. No one thought he had a chance against Chuck or Machida.

Lawler and Hunt are both impressive for sure.

Also, "could have", not could of... Sorry, can't help it!

You talking about Lawler? He dropped from 185 so he is leaner and meaner. Not sure if he's been accused of using PEDs before.

Rampage after Wand & Shogun literally stomped him. Came back to beat Lindland, Chuck for the title and Hendo to unify the belts (arguably the biggest fight in LHW history), and got revenge on Wand.

We used to make jokes about Rampage after watching him fight "Stick a fork in him."

He managed to get his act together for a time, and unifying the UFC and PRIDE belts is often overlooked.

That is true. To get the belt and unify the belts is huge. Especially after his decent pride run.
