    Barboza, Alvarez and Frankie of course. Which of these 3 was the best at their peak, and who is the best right now?

    In terms of skill? Edgar, and it's still Edgar. Frankie basically does everything that Eddie does, but better. boxing? wrestling? bjj? frankie is better everywhere.

    Edson was touched by the hand of allah himself.

    He is blessed.

    Barboza left, but they still got zabit, moraes, and a bunch of other guys.

    Frankie IMO. Eddie might have more power but Frankie has him beat everywhere else.

    But he brought Edson to South Jersey so they could train together.

    That’s the cool thing about Frankie.
    He knew Edson had some skills that could help him improve.

    Frankie, then Eddie, then Edson.

    Frankie is not just the best, most well-rounded of the three - he is also calm under pressure and doesn’t fold, even when clearly outmatched (as in the Aldo fights).

    Edgar has his own hall in the Pantheon of MMA. One of the main appeals of a fight is the little guy winning vs a bigger guy and he’s the epitome of that dynamic.
