    Depends on if it's based on legacy, or based on prime vs prime.

    Cro Cop, Randy, Timmy, Mir, DC, Barnett, Sergei, maybe Bork all deserve mentions

    Anyone that doesn't have Big Nog as #2 loses respect from me

    Fedor
    Nog
    Stipe
    Werdum

    The fuck? No DC, is this a troll post? He's undeniably top 5, I'd argue top 3.

    Wrong. If DC would have stayed at HW and was successful then yes but he dropped down to LHW instead.

    DC has wins over Stipe, Mir, Barnett but that's it. He won the Grand Prix and became UFC HW champ but that's not enough to warrant a top 3 spot let alone a top 5 spot. If he would have stayed at HW he would definitely be top 3 imo but he didn't

    If you use the "relative to peers" standard:

    1. Fedor
    2. Nog
    3. Stipe
    4. Werdum
    5. JDS

    I think Fedor and Nog in the top two spots are locks (modern fans generally don't remember or know how dominant Nog was in the days of Pride and Rings before that.

    After that it gets messy with a number of reasonable options for the 3-5 slots, and even in the next tier down (6-10) it's messy.

    1. Fedor
    2. Big Nog
    3. Werdum
    4. Stipe
    5. JDS
    6. Cain
    7. Barnett
    8. Sylvia
    9. Cro Cop
    10. Overeem

    IMO the top 5 is easy(though Werdum and Stipe are close to interchangeable) once you get passed them it gets difficult to rank 6-10.

    DC didn't make my top 10 due to lack of HW fights against top level guys same for Couture since they both split time between HW and LHW.

    Strikeforce Bigfoot right after fedor fight
    Blackbeast ranked top guy regardless of what we think
    Roy nelson back when he was knocking out top 10 guys

    Thats 6-1 at hw vs top 10 guys
    1 loss at hw to the current champ losing 3 maybe 4 rounds max against all of them
    Easily top 10
