    Curious to see some lists from you guys. Anderson is obviously at the top, and fighters like Gegard and Jacare deserve a spot somewhere in the Top 10, but other than that, I'm not sure who should be included. There's a conversation to be had if some of the current MW top 10 should already included, but let me see what you guys think.

    Izzy
    Franklin
    Gegard

    Solid. I would probably put Hendo in there, but I can see why you didn't.

    Hendo would be high on a head to head list (which I edited into my post), but in terms of his MW resume, I think a lot of his good wins are at LHW.

    I prefer Hendo to Bisping head to head, but Bisping has more good MW wins than Hendo I think, no doubt Hendo is the greater fighter overall.

    Not a lot of pure MW fights. Hendo fought at a bunch of different weights. The bulk of Bisping's career was at MW and he won a modern era UFC belt in that division. I think he deserves a spot for sure. I see how its hard putting him under Hendo though when he got H -bombed to death lmaoo

    I like the guy but Whittaker absolutely is not a top 10 all time middle weight. I honestly think Bisping would have destroyed him

    If you look at his best wins he has Yoel Romero twice (one highly debatable to be fair), Jacare and Uriah Hall, that's pretty solid.
