Fight was stopped due to a cut dude. Just ask Tiki.

Also, I'm sure it's been mentioned, but Lombard is at WW now so he's clearly top 5.

Douglas Lima. In the UFC Lawler most likely.

Not UFC, but Douglas Lima is Top 5, for sure.

I think Hendricks' power is a bit overrated.
His notable KO's were against fighters who notably have poor striking defense(Fitch&Kampmann).

Just to make an example,Condit ate Hendricks's shot like sandwiches,while Ellenberger made Carlos go fetal(no one else ever came close to this)

1-3 looks correct, and then you fell off the plane of reality.
Condit doesn't hit hard, he hits accurately and from weird angles. That's the main reason people don't see those hits coming, thus getting hurt unexpectedly. Diaz is one of the weekest strikers in the division, who does damage via accumulation. He's been regularly called pillow-fisted for a reason.

This couldn't be any more obvious.

for my money, i'd put,

1) Robbie Lawler
2) Johnny Hendricks
3) Jake Ellenberger
4) Carlos Condit
5) Nick Diaz
Agree to all except Diaz. He's not a power puncher, he's a volume/precision puncher. He'll pin you against the cage and pick you apart.

Same with Condit. I don't consider him a power puncher.

I think your Top 3 are solid, and I'd throw Matt Brown in that list as well to round out a Top 4.
