    Toughest call for me was between Romero and Weidman but these are just based on my opinions :)

    Looks about right to me, TS. If GSP returned I would have him ahead of Askren at WW.

    Regarding Weidman and Romero, Weidman is probably the better wrestler for MMA, whereas Romero is the better wrestler in wrestling, proven by his wrestling accomplishments.

    i think Weidman takes the MW category, he's not just an amazing wrestler but a gifted grappler in general

    That's what I was thinking, I think Weidman's great at setting up the TD in MMA but Romero can man handle big guys with little effort.

    Edgar's definitely a honourable mention, but I think Mendes takes it.

    Cejudo didn't even really use wrestling in his UFC debut fight but he looked stellar overall in my opinion.

    This list looks correct more or less.

    I'm a Romero fan but his MMA wrestling isn't the best. In fact he was taken down several times by Brunson and almost lost the fight if not the last round comeback. I'm also afraid he will get taken down and submitted by Jacare.

    Mighty Mouse would take down Cejuo and make it look easy.
