    Hendo at #2 is as solid as Anderson at #1. There should be no debate on that

    I could see the argument for Yoel being #2 because of his wins and his skills but how on earth can you have Franklin, Bisping and Weidman ahead of Dan Henderson? Hendo should be 2 or 3 behind Yoel at worst

    After Anderson this becomes completely subjective...i have rich in my user name but I'm honest enough to know he's not #2 (or 3 or 4) but oddly enough I believe prime Franklin better than bisping (actually didn't have to use word "oddly")

    If GSP beats Bisping, be ready for many to claim him as an honorary Middleweight GOAT.

    in no particular order, here's 15 that should probably on everyone's list.

    A Silva
    Sakuraba
    F Shamrock
    Lindland
    Franklin
    Romero
    Rockhold
    Vitor
    Pele
    Bustamante
    Henderson
    Tanner
    Horn
    Jacare
    Okami

    then again, guys like Vitor, Bustamante, Pele, F Shamrock and Sakuraba didn't spend their career at 185, so it's arguable that they don't. so who knows.

    I like Bisping, Especially since he came back from the Hendo KO to win the Title, but i wouldn't rank him #1, he's definetly up there though.

    Any list that has steroid cheaters like Anderson in it should not be taken seriously.

    Neither if Franklin is in the top 5.
