Compiling a list for a video, Need the top 20 middleweights (of all time) iyo. I have Anderson as #1
#2: Rich Franklin
#3: Yoel Romero
#4: Chris Weidman
#5: Michael Bisping
Hendo at #2 is as solid as Anderson at #1. There should be no debate on that
Find the guy that doesn't belong in there lol.
Pro-tip: His nickname is "whineman"
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
I'd consider putting Vitor as #3 as well
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")
1. Anderson Silva
2. Dan Henderson
3. Kazushi Sakuraba
4. Yoel Romero
5. Michael Bisping
6. Luke Rockhold
7. Jacare Souza
8. Murilo Bustamante
9. Lyoto Machida
11. Chris Weidman
12. Vitor Belfort
13. Kazuo Misaki
14. Rich Franklin
15. Cung Le
16. Frank Shamrock
17. Murilo Ninja Rua
18. Yoshihiro Akiyama
19. Jorge Santiago
20. Matt Lindland
Just a tentative list I made in 5 mins. Didn't put a whole lot of thought into it. I could be wrong about a few and I am probably missing a few good fighters
If GSP beats Bisping, be ready for many to claim him as an honorary Middleweight GOAT.
Bisping should #1
in no particular order, here's 15 that should probably on everyone's list.
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.
in no particular order
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.
Cant put Gastelum man he had one fight at 85
