    what fighters from the first 15 UFC's do you think would be to be top 15 today. assuming if they had access to modern day training and in their physical primes.
    ken Shamrock
    Mark Coleman
    Don Frye
    guy Mezger
    dan the beast
    and I honestly believe with the skill set these gentlemen had in the hay day would give a lot of modern fighters who middle of the road a hard time dealing with them.
    I think I named the top candidates. does anybody have any more obscure ones? I think these what if scenarios are always fun for discussion.

    Frank Shamrock...

    Well he he didn't fight in the UFC by UFC 15, but he did fight in the UFC before UFC 16....kind of a paradox huh.
