    This division is filled with a ton of High Level strikers right now, but how would you rank them? Here's my list-

    1- Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson
    2- Carlos 'Natural Born Killer' Condit
    3- 'Ruthless' Robbie Lawler
    4- Nick Diaz
    5- Albert 'Einstein' Tumenov

    Replace Diaz with Rory and it's spot on.

    Diaz only knows how to strike a match at this point.

    I can't see Larkin as a top 5 striker. He was legitimately terrified to engage his punches/head kicks with Tumenov. He was limited to only leg kicks.

    and still arguably won against Tumenov.

    i agree though his boxing was exposed there.

    hard to say how he would do against condit, rory Diaz or Lawler

    Yeah, he made it a very close fight with only using leg kicks... but that's why he lost. He ONLY used leg kicks while Tumenov (despite being damaged by them) didn't change anything about his game and continued to find Larkin's face.

    Good list, except for Diaz. I don't think he's a top ten striker. In no particular order:

    Lawler
    McDonald
    Condit
    Thompson
    Warlley Alves
    Thiago Alves
    Tumenov
    Cerrone (once he debuts)
    Brown
    Saunders
    Saffiedine
