    First off I'd like to say I hope Charles Oliveira is OK, and thanks to the docs who probably saved his life.

    Now, who do you guys rate as the best ACTIVE wrestlers, SUBMISSION grapplers, and strikers in each respective division.

    Heres mine;

    (striker, wrestler, grappler)
    HW: Cain Velasquez, Jared Rosholt, Fabricio Werdum
    LHW: Anthony Johnson, Daniel Cormier, Glover Teixera
    MW: Chris Weidman, Yoel Romero, Ronoldo Souza
    WW: Stephan Thompson, Johny Hendricks, Demian Maia
    LW: Rafael dos Anjos, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Gilbert Burns
    FW: Connor McGregor, Chad Mendes, Charles Oliveira
    BW: TJ Dillashaw, Renan Barao/TJ Dillashaw(Tie), Renan Barao
    FLY: Demetrious Johnson, Demetrious Johnson, Demetrious Johnson
    WBW: Amanda Nunes, Ronda Rousey, Ronda Rousey
    WSW: Joanna Jedredzyck, Claudia Gadhela, Claudia Gadhela

    Barao and Dillashaw are both pretty hard to decide for me in the wrestling, because as far as I can recall neither has been taken down.

    What do you think?
