    He only put Khabib first because he wants to fight him.

    I give him credit for putting GSP on the list. Most wrestlers get butthurt from the success he was able to have with MMA wrestling without a traditional wrestling background.

    Not going to lie, I was in tears when Freddie died. I was lucky enough to see him and Queen in concert back in the day.

    I'm actually seeing Queen again with Adam Lambert here in Toronto this summer. Will be nice nostalgia. Took my kid to see AC DC and Guns & Roses over the last few years. She had a blast. She is a big Queen fan as well.

    This isn't his list of the best wrestlers in the UFC, it is "the best wrestling for MMA" in the UFC. That list will be a little different than outright best wrestlers period.

    16 is too many names and most of them are olympic or NCAA level elite wrestlers/grapplers.
    I'd cede replacing Sherk with GSP in that list, but how no one has mentioned Mark Schultz is a far more egregious omission than GSP.

    Pretty bad list, I'm surprised. It's weird that he gives Hughes a nod when Koscheck fought during that same time and was clearly much better.
    Frankie? Love Frankie but lol no
