Most of the guys in my sig imo, but there's some bias there. I can't remember the last time Cub Swanson has been in a boring/bad fight. He has to be up there for consistency and his fight with Semerzier might be my favourite FW fight ever (CSJ-Poirier is the only one I think I would put above, just off the cuff).

I respect your opinion.

So what are your 5?

I've been liking the new improved Werdum, honestly. From the Overeem fight in 2011 to the Travis Browne fight, his stand up has improved from almost nothing to pretty brutal.

I'm not saying he's going to beat Cain or anything, but I'd sure like to see his improved game against the Reem again.

This is why I'm saying top 5, I can think of a few who I'd say are more exciting than him. Cain, Overeem, Condit to name a few. Cerrone is up there

You put me on the spot.
Give Me A sec


1) Lawler
2) Rousey
3) Condit
4) Pettis
5) Oliveira

My unbias list. Cerrone would be in my top 10
Possibly 6 or 7. Benson would be up there as well.

Yeah, just looked up his record. That was a frustrating fight to watch but it was almost 4 years ago. Before that it must be one of his KOTC fights (as bummed out as I was for the Aldo fight, and the quick loss against Pulver), haven't seen the Arreola, Corey, or Montano fights. I know the Valencia one was solid, rewatched the Micah Miller fight a week ago. The Kim fight wasn't the most exciting until the last sequence.
