    I would say Rory or Benson

    Follow up question: do you think the UFC is slowly losing its grip on having the best fighters?

    Actual best or "P4P" best?

    Actual best outside the UFC (for now anyway) is probably Vitaly Minakov. P4P best does not matter, a cockroach is P4P better than a lion.

    Not gonna count Bellator guys, I’d say Askren or Pavlovich. I think they’d both easily beat a lot of their divisions. As far as potential I’d have to go w Bevon Lewis, Whitney gave that developmental deal (whatever that is) to last year. He’s a good weight at 185 and fights like Jones

    The moose is the correct answer followed by Rory. Non former ufc guys ? I gotta go with MVP. This guy needs to fight some high level guys

    Rory
    Mousasi
    Minakov
    MVP
    Mike Chandler
    Aaron Pico will be high on the list after a few more fights

    Bellator have a few decent prospects right now like Pico and Ed Ruth

    I'd love to see how guys like Chandler, Eduardo Dantas and the Pitbull brothers (especially Patricio) would fare in the UFC

    ufc is in pretty good shape if the best guy outside the organisation lost 2 in a row before leaving
