    What exactly is Jake Shields’s record in fights where he weighed in at 170 or 171 lbs?

    Not 176, not 185.

    And I think Miletich lost to both Burnett and Saunders. Don’t understand those decisions.
    He also got absolutely crushed by Pele Landi, as did Hughes.

    Its hard to say who is the best fighter ever. We would have to come how get them all on their best night in their prime and make them all fight one another. Just because someone might not have the greatest record etc does not mean they wouldn't have beaten everyone on their best night.

    This is a pretty good list. Also insane that GSP can look down and say he's beaten half the fighters on it (and mostly everybody snubbed from it). Yet people on here think he's scared of #4. Lol

    yeah he was hesitating if he should be higher than condit and diaz or under them but i would say that bellator and OneFC WW champ > strikeforce or WEC champ
    also lima and Koreshkov are better than any wins on condit and diaz record

    Shields at 170lbs 28-9-1, going by wiki, it's possible a promotion used different weight limits for their divisions.
