    A bunch of nerds immediately spewed diarrhea out of their mouths all over this list in the other thread. Noobs can be smelled a mile away arguing for Werdum over Nog. " Career accomplishments and impact on the sport". What part of that didn't you understand? Nog beat Werdum once and he was beating top Hws while Werdum was in MMA diapers.

    The list was excellent but where was Maia? This guy had an excellent MW career and has been wrecking the WW division for ages now. He is the reason it is the most elite division in MMA history imo. (Unless you want to argue PRIDE HW which would be fine). Noone gets into WW top ten who hasn't proven their greatness. A fighter like Laflare or Gunnar may crack it, but noone stays without constantly evolving.

    I have no problem with that list without only the lack of mention of Ricardo Arona. Not even in the honorable mention. I was like WTF.

    Not having Anderson a clear number 1 makes the list a joke.

    Nog is one of my favorite all time fighters, but I wouldn't even have him in the top 5.

    1. Spider

    Then in no particular order

    Shogun
    Belfort
    Aldo
    Werdum

    Then

    Nog
    Wand
    JDS
    Royce
    Barao

    Anderson and big nog are interchangeable, after that its really what division had depth when these fighters were winning, and how you value those wins and their impacts on mma history.

    It's almost impossible to read those articles since I feel bad for the writers and all the diarrhea that people splurt at the bottom of each page.

    Big Nog and Anderson are top 2,then every one else.
    Machida should be there too but not that high.

    Honestly, does the order even matter.

    Anderson, Aldo, Nogueira, Werdum, Wanderlei, Shogun, and Vitor. Name those guys and you've named all the Brazilians who had long successful careers.

    Anderson's level of competition was way lower respectively
    I have no problem seeing him second especially since Nog is "responsible" for convincing him not to quit the sport ( and we know what happened then...)
    Machida should have been there instead of JDS too

    Anderson over Nog.
    Nog over Werdum.
    Werdum over JDS.

    In my own personal list, Aldo would
    be number one, but I'm not brazilian
    so I can't really call it.

    By the way, was this list made by a
    brazilian? It would be most appropriate.

    Shogun, Wandy, Vitor, Royce and Rizzo
    should all be on that list. Bustamante
    should be an honorable mention, as
    well as Maia and Pele
