    I did this once. Sparked decent debate. Here is the updated version

    This is strictly by resume. Nothing else. Not talent. Not finishes. Nothing except for by resume.

    except Flyweight. Sorry just not enough great flyweights to make a good list. And no women. Also PED users are in here because quite honestly.....they are all on steroids

    HW

    1. Fedor- I think this is pretty clear but I guess some people try to debate it? But resume wise I think it's pretty clear
    2. Antonio Nogueira- I think it's neck and neck with him and Werdum at this point. I wouldn't argue if you had Werdum at 2
    3. Fabricio Werdum
    4. Stipe-
    5. DC- I know he beat Stipe, But I would probably take Stipe's HW resume over his. Stipe (JDS,Reem, Francis, Andrei, Hunt,Werdum) vs DC (Barnett, Stipe, Bigfoot, Mir, Nelson). I take Stipe resume wise. But either way is ok with me.
    6. JDS
    7. Cain
    8. Overeem
    9. Cro Cop
    10. Sylvia

    LHW
    1. Jon Jones- Sorry. Resume wise its sorta not close
    2. Chuck- I think he has better wins at 205 than DC (sorry DC fans ). But if you put DC at 2 no worries.
    3. DC
    4. Shogun
    5. Wandy
    6. Rampage
    7. Henderson
    8. Randy
    9. Machida
    10. Rashad

    MW

    1. Anderson Silva
    2. Vitor Belfort
    3. Dan Henderson
    4. Michael Bisping- Look at his resume before freaking out
    5. Yoel Romero
    6. Jacare
    7. Rockhold- maybe rockhold over jacare
    8. Weidman
    9. Whittaker
    10. Moose

    And before everyone freaks out about Franklin go back and look at his resume.....he has been surpassed resume wise.
    Also MW is easily the hardest for me. 5-10 is a complete tossup and could be totally different depending on the person


    WW

    1. GSP
    2. Matt Hughes
    3. Robbie Lawler
    4. Hendricks
    5. Woodley
    6. Fitch
    7. Condit
    8. Shields
    9. Maia
    10. Koscheck?


    LW

    1. BJ
    2. Frankie
    3. Benson
    4. Gomi
    5. Eddie ( I guess? Not really a fan but he has the resume I suppose)
    6. RDA
    7. Ferguson
    8. Gray
    9. Pettis
    10. Florian

    FW

    1. Jose Aldo
    2. Conor (Look at his resume before freaking out)
    3. Faber
    4. Frankie
    5. Holloway- I could see Holloway as high as 3
    6. Chad Mendes
    7. Mike Brown
    8. Ricardo Lamas
    9. Cub Swanson
    10. Pat Curran

    BW

    1. Cruz
    2. TJ
    3. Barao
    4. Faber
    5. Cody ( Although he could be literally anywhere between 5-10 at this point)
    6. Benavidez- I'm sorta thinking he should be ahead of Cody?
    7. Torres
    8. Bowles
    9. John Lineker
    10. John Dodson

    If fedor is considered goat, then im not quite sure why Igor isnt mentioned in the top of all time.
    No Igor, shitty list.

    Also imo if you bring all these fighters to when Igor was arguably in his prime(bare knuckle headbutts soccer kicks) Igor beats just about everyone on every one of your lists.(I wouldnt favor him over a couple of the heavyweights) but with the old rules set, longer rounds. You tell me igor isnt beating the ever loving shit out of timmy or dc or stipe.

    yes i do realize im in my own world now lol

    Why do people feel they are so important that other people need to see their rankings
