    5 for every division seems like a lot of work and there aren't even 5 prominent wrestlers in many divisions...

    HW -

    1. Cain
    2. Stipe
    3. Barnett I guess?
    4. ...edit yeah Rosholt, he's so boring I forgot he existed lol

    Is Brock considered a current MMA fighter?

    LHW -

    1. Jones
    2. DC
    3. Phil Davis (Bader beat him but it was razor close and I think Davis is better/more accomplished overall. Also I know he is not in UFC anymore but I just wanted to give him a shout out)
    4. Bader
    5. Latifi?

    WBW -

    1. Tate
    2. McMann
    3. Pena
    4. Zingano
    5. ...

    Hendo's knees are shot dude. He can't defend takedowns anymore let alone shoot.

    Is there a reason you neglected Romero, the obvious #1 on the list?

    Khabilov and Makhachev would outwrestle Sherk and Prezeres, and probably RDA when they get physically stronger. Makhachev and Khabilov are both great wrestlers in mma, they have great technique - both better than the guys you have listed (except Khabib), they have been wrestling for most of their lives, I would pick all of them to beat even Sherk and Tibau in freestyle wrestling.

    Sherk - doesn't fight anymore
    Tibau - is suspended, and he has great takedown defense, but not great offence.

    I would argue that rumble is a better mma wrestler than Phil Davis and bader. Stuffed all of their take down attempts and even took DC the Olympian down. Rumble was a juco national champ just like Jones

    HW

    Cain
    Miocic
    Reem

    LHW

    Cormier
    Jones
    Glover
    Rumble
    Bader

    MW

    Weidman
    Romero
    Kennedy

    WW

    Hendricks
    GSP
    Woodley
    Maia
    Gastelum

    LW

    Khabib
    Brooks
    Chandler
    Alvarez
    Tibau

    FW

    Mendes
    Edgar
    Elkins

    BW

    Dominick
    TJ

    Best to worst here. GSP vs Hendricks was a great wrestling war but Hendricks won it in they fight, so he gets to be the dude who have the best wrestling in the division.

    The rest I don't think how you can say is better than the other. I think some think Jones is better than Cormier, but Jones wrestling has been stop before.

    I was actually debating that, I have seen more of Dunham using wrestling to win, rather than Alvarez, but he could definitely be up there.

    He used it against Pettis and Gil who's a solid wrestler himself. Eddie uses his wrestling to stay standing, wrestling isn't just takedowns. Eddie has also fought way higher caliber wrestlers and fighters than Dunham.
