    I would still favor Rory over Woodley, but I think Moose/Whittaker is a close fight. Competition between brands is good though.

    That' debateable, who was the last striker that Whitaker tooled?? He looks good vs grapplers who can't get the TD, doesn' mean he's a high level striker.

    I for one think it' a toss up

    Your striking looks real good when you're fighting grapplers all the time...

    Moose is one of the most tactical and intelligent fighters and has been out struck once in his career. I think he outpoints him in a 5 round decision.

    The only aspect of Whittakers game which is better then Moose is his TDD. Which is why Whittaker is the UFC champ and Moose wasn't. Moose wasn't gonna be Jacare and Romero.

    The top 5 literally comes down to style match ups and I got moose all day against Whitaker.

    you’re clearly hating on Whittaker if you think his strikingly is not high level,in fact he’s the best striker in mw history.
    Whittaker has beaten Yoel Romero on feet who manage to beat every single mw on feet other than Whittaker.
    He also easily dismantled Brunson like no others
    Easily beat jacare on feet when both Romero and gastelum having huge trouble on feet with jacare

    The top one is 50/50 IMO. Tyrone is a better fighter then when they first met. Gegard however would rightfully be a big underdog I'd guess.

    I had the exact opposite reaction. I think Moose takes Whittaker, but Rory loses to Woodly.
