    In what order of this fighters list do rank of who has decline least( all in the twilight of his careers), all out of his prime.... and rank in order the fighters who you think can retire with more good performances(in other words be competitive, maybe not win but competitive fights and not have that sad feelings to see him fight like BJ Penn)?

    -Anderson Silva
    -Rashad Evans
    -Shogun Rua
    -Vitor Belfort
    -Lyoto Machida
    -Jhony Hendricks
    -Andrei arlovski

    This is a rather arbitrary list here

    Hendricks in his prime was pure pre USADA power, the testing GSP went when he was against him was better than USADA

    Anderson
    Shogun
    Rashad
    Machida
    Andrei
    The rest

    They have all declined pretty bad but I would say Rashad and Vitor have declined the most.

    Anderson's technique still keeps him competitive. Shogun can beat top 10 guys but not top 5.

    Arlovski still moves good but it has been a while since he landed a big one on somebody before they land on him.

    Johny Hendricks needs to reevaluate everything.

    We haven't seen Lyoto fight in a long time. We will find out when he faces Brunson

    I think rashad should be in the last position due to his performance, I think there are no more shin, and very very insecure of his abilities, are too much afraid of gettin hurt that are losing to non ranked fighters or worst, very beatable fighters.

    for shogun, didnt see very good fighters against him... a very declined minotoro, corey who??? and villante who is just a prospect and non ranked.

    for me is

    Anderson
    Machida
    Shogun
    Andrei
    Rashad

    I don't know what's wrong with Rashad.
    Does he have some nagging injuries that he couldn't shake?
    It's not just speed/rhythm that he lost, he fights scared now too.
    The guy fought the best of the best a few years back, but he seems like he lost everything since then.
