    For the 1-10 scale, with 1 being typical local level scrubs in low level promotions that attract crowds of 15-20 and a 10 being St Pierre or Jon Jones at his best, how do the following fighters rate for you?

    Robert Whittaker
    Luke Rockhold
    TJ Dillashaw
    Conor McGregor
    Cody Garbrandt
    Henry Cejudo
    Max Holloway
    Dominick Cruz
    Tyron Woodley
    Wonderboy Thompson

    Robert Whittaker - 9.4

    TJ Dillashaw - 9.4

    Max Holloway - 9.0

    A few years ago Cruz would have been a 9 something but this is his current ranking.

    I think the key is overall skill. Although not a fan, I think at this point Tyron is probably the most well-rounded fighter, not taking into account the psychological game of course. Whittaker will be climbing as time passes by, Rockhold sometimes lacks concentration in the ring, Conor lacks a ground, Cody is a great boxer but lacks a full arsenal, Cejudo will be interesting to watch but for now a 6, Holloway, Cruz et al. are all good fighters, Wonderboy has the skill but sometimes lacks the execution.

    Robert Whittaker 7
    Luke Rockhold 7
    TJ Dillashaw 7
    Conor McGregor 7
    Cody Garbrandt 6
    Henry Cejudo 6
    Max Holloway 7
    Dominick Cruz 6
    Tyron Woodley 8
    Wonderboy Thompson 7

    How would Conor McGregor be a 10?

    He got taken down multiple times by Diaz. Obviously Khabib, Kevin Lee and basically any LW could take him down and destroy him on the ground.

    His striking is good but his grappling defense is not good enough to put him at a 10, which would be like Fedor or GSP who had very few weaknesses.

    Yeah I left him out to not have too many guys on there at once but in terms of whose mastered MMA at every conceivable level it increasingly does seem we have MM in one group and everyone else who has ever gotten into an Octagon or MMA ring in the other.

    Robert Whittaker 9
    -best win streak in division history as far as quality of opponents. Destroyed the top grapplers and strikers in the division.

    Luke Rockhold 6
    -most overrated striker in division history, but has an excellent top game.

    TJ Dillashaw 8
    -potential 9 with a few more wins

    Conor McGregor 8
    -untested against larger grapplers

    Cody Garbrandt 7
    -could bounce back

    Henry Cejudo 6
    -can dominate lesser opponents but still looks boring against top competition.

    Max Holloway 8
    -Must pass the next 2 grappling tests to get to the next level.

    Dominick Cruz 6
    -lost a step/doesn’t fight enough

    Tyron Woodley 8
    -beat the toughest guys in his division albeit in boring fashion.

    Wonderboy Thompson 7
    -can maybe beat anyone in the division except Woodley.
