    Ferg doesn't belong in this discussion. All the other 3 have 2 top 5 wins and more than 2 top 10 wins.

    WTF?

    Yoel has 3 top 10 wins (Kennedy, Lyoto, Jacare) the latter 3 being top 5 at time Yoel beat them. Brunson and Tavares were top 15 as well.

    Jake was also top 10 when Wonderboy beat him. Hendricks was #2 and Hory #3 when Wonderboy beat them, higher than anyone Max fought.

    Lol what?!?!?!?


    Holloway is one of the LEAST impressive on that list. His best win is over Oliveira and it wasn't even a legit win.

    Are Kennedy and Machida really relevant now though?

    MW is a far weaker division that FW, also Kennedy is now 11th

    Yoel should have lost to both- Kennedy and Jacare. It's between Wonderboy and Holloway and I'm leaning towards Wonderboy. If Holloway had fought and beaten Chad or Frankie, then I would give it to him.

    I'd go with Wonderboy or Holloway since they have looked far more dominant and didn't need comebacks or was close to losing or arguably lost any fights

    Yoel a close 3rd

    Ferg distant 4th

    How are Lamas, Stevens, and Swanson less impressive than a UD against broken Rory, win over fat Johnny, and Ellenberger?

    Wonderboy is the only one to beat a former champion of his weight class, so him.

    Cub and Lamas are both clearly better wins than Charles.

    They were relevant when Yoel beat them that's all that matters. Not their ranking 2 years later.

    Cub just finished getting #ABUSED by Frankie, Lamas is inconsistent, Stephens was 1-2 going into the Holloway fight.

    Dude has just come up at the right time.

    Wonderboy has the single best win by far (Rory 50-45).

    A win over Hendricks and MacDonald says it. Wonderboy wins this discussion.
