    1. Jon Fitch
    2. BJ Penn
    3. Thiago Alves
    4. Dan Hardy
    5. Josh Koscheck
    6. Jake Shields
    7. Carlos Condit
    8. Nick Diaz
    9. Johny Hendricks

    I think he beats Diaz, Condit, Hardy, Alves, Penn but loses to Fitch, Hendricks, Shields, Koscheck.

    So 5/9

    K-1 Shields decisions Usman

    Prime Hendricks has a chance


    But other than that, I don't see Usman losing to any of those old lions of yesteryear. Too good everywhere, like GSP was.

    9/9

    And I don't rate Usman too highly.

    Usman also destroys prime GSP with ease.

    All of them. Older MMA fighters just weren't all that good.

    He beats them all, and more decisively than GSP.

    Disagree. He could beat all of those opponents. Hendrick is definitely a tough fight for him though just like it was for gsp

    The Hendricks that fought GSP is the only one with a good chance. BJ has a shot if he can find a way to keep it standing, Usman's striking is definitely not GSP-caliber. Usman only has punching power over Georges. However, great wrestling, a stiff jab, and a big right hand is all that's needed to beat most of GSP's opponents.

    All of them. Usman is the GSP of this time. But GSP did more during his. Usman can get to be as dominant, but of course it's tough to keep beating top contenders.

    Though I disagree that Usman would beat prime GSP I can understand if someone thinks that would be possible, to say he'd do it with ease just renders your opinion invalid.
