    No shock who would be first on this one.

    Also crazy Brock made it reasonably high on the list things considering.

    Whatever his limits nobody has had a tougher schedule than Brock Lesnar. One Korean can and then nothing but killers until retirement.

    Considering the amount of low effort-threads on Sherdog, I'd just like to salute acannxr for putting in some work.

    @acannxr

    Is there a way for you to check Suredawg rankings historically?

    1. man, Akira Shoji usually fought at 75 kilos, that´s a UFC small WW, he bulked up with fat rather than muscle to reach 92 kilos (thats a small UFC LHW) to fight in PRIDE´S hw division, Coleman beating him via decision is a failure from him considering the man was roided beyond any reasonable level, in fact all guys in Hammer House were fully roided: Coleman, Randleman, Baroni, Gary Goodridge, almost everyone from that gym had roid rage attacks during and after the fights

    2. Rodriguez´ only win to Couture was when he was roided

    3. Brock beat a much smaller and old man in Couture, just his mere size was enough to beat an old wrestler

    4. Rizzo was robbed in his first fight with Couture

    5. Barnett beat Nakamura, a MW and undersized LHW

    6. Big Nog wins against Valenjtin and Schaub are not that great

    7. Sobral wasn´t a natural HW, thats Fedor´s only win I disagree

    So where does 28 year old Blaydes come in on this list? If he defeats Lewis then would he have 5 or 6? Oleynik, Hunt, Reem, JDS, Volkov & Lewis? Just curious

    It's interesting that FightMatrix generated historical rankings put Hunt ahead of Mirko when Fedor and Mirko fought. Hunt beating Mirko later that year must have changed things significantly in the previous months for their rankings.

    Fedor has the quantity, but the quality is very lacklustre.

    Just out of curiosity, where is Ice Cold on Coleman's record? Igor was 42-2 heading into the fight with Coleman and I could of sworn was #1 or #2 in the world at the time.....

    LOL @ Shoji being ranked, ever.

    Edit - are they not crediting Igor because it was the OWGP? That's garbage, they were both at HW.
