    If you have seen every single perforance of Rockhold since 2010 except the rematch with Bisping (a guy Luke had just finished) I dont get why your wtf. Notably the beating he put on Weidman.
    His losses to trt Belfort and Romero definitely doesnt make for your wtf, as they could beat everyone on the list including #1 Henderson.
    Winner of Weidman vs Rockhold rematch certainly get #2 among best American 185lbers

    You dont say nothing. I understood, I tell you Franklin wasnt fighting the best around in his time.
    Call Franklin's opponents that accredit a higher rank for Franklin

    Lol. A 20-3 Okami on a 4-0 streak in the UFC including wins over Belcher, a 10-1 Mike Swick and Anderson The Spider Silva Himself was "pretty green"?

    Sorry buddy, your credibility was circling the drain before this post, but now it's flushed forever.

    Hendo in his prime was one of the toughest men walking on planet earth.

    That dude was made of pure grit.

    Kelvin is so over rated on here it's silly. All he did at 185 was beat short notice Bisping and get a gift over Jacare. Dude got fished by USADA era Weidmann for crying out loud.

    Oh ok. He should be ranked higher you think?
    Maybe, I listed him as a posible top ten American MW ever, but I dont think he should be ranked much higher. I think a guy as Dave Branch would dominate him

    That's an awful list. How do you have Rich Franklin below guys like Branch, Kennedy, juiced up WWs like Shields and Marquadt? And how do you have David Branch over fucking Gastelum? Lmao, you should be banned for this.

    If you think Okami at his 25 years old was already full evolved as a fighter...wtf will you tell me about credibility lol
    His fight with Franklin was in 2007. Since that loss he started working in strenght & conditioning and you just have to look at his body to realize it. He was barely cutting weight to make 185 when fought Franklin.
    In 2009, after losing to Sonnen, he started training in Team Quest...if you watch Okami after training in America and you dont see his evolution in boxing, wrestling and conditioing in comparison to him in 2007 then you are the one who is clueless.
    By the way, Okami rematched Belcher in 2012. Belcher was a whole better fighter than he was in 2006.. If you dont recognize this neither...again, you are clueless.

    You dont get the matter of the thread, or you dont get the selection?
    Best middleweight sized fighters from America ever. Thats the thread. Do you think I missing somebody? Do you think some of them dont deserve to be listed?

    The reason I rank Branch (one of the most underrated MW in mma forums) is because he is 14-2 in his last 6 years, dominating many legit fighters during that time, getting and defending both MW and LHW belts in WSOF, and his only losses are to Rumble fukin Johnson in a compettitive fight, and Luke Rockhold, who I consider a solid contender to #1 in this list.

    Also, tell me who did Rich Franklin beat to deserve a higher spot? I dont care if he beat them in UFC o not, I care about the quality of the opposition.

    lol so many people claiming Franklin should be top 3 or top 5
    Its amazing how much effect marketing has on people, especially Americans.
    Frankling was a cool UFC champ back when the best guys in his weightclass werent fighting in UFC. And then of course appeared better MWs from America in later years also.
    He was good, I actually listed him, but tell me who are Franklin's best wins to be considerd a top 3 in this list

    You realize you're talking about WSOF right? Just wanted to clarify that. His best, and to be honest only really solid win is against Santos. 2012 MW Rumble is not an impressive win.

    Franklin on the other hand has beaten Wanderlei, Chuck, and prime Okami. He arguably beat Hendo. His losses have only been against virtually some of the best MWs of all time.
