    3/4 for middleweights.

    Anderson
    Tanner
    Wand/Franklin (I say Wand)

    P4P? Hard not to have him somewhere in or near the top ten, depending on the criteria used.

    In the goat talk??? I have Wanderlei in the top 10 of all time. We can say that GSP, Fedor, Anderson take the top 3. Then you got 7 spots to fill, I see Wand in there somewhere.

    6.Machida
    7.Rashad

    Had you done a search, you'd probably have found 143 other posts discussing the exact same thing. 8 within the last week.

    Nostalgia trolling.

    I agree. to the guy who said that wand is 205.... kinda... really though he's always been middleweight sized. Like hendo and franklin he's just a badass who liked fucking up bigger dudes. Most of Wands signature wins are over guys that would be middleweights in todays parlance. And most of his worst losses are to men much larger than he.

    That's a tough one because Rampage had Chuck's number, but Chuck was the man in America for a very long time and will be remembered for longer.

    Chuck held the belt a lot longer than Rampage did. It's not uncommon to rank someone ahead of someone that they lost to.

    Chuck fought in a weaker division than Pride MW and got his ass whooped by Rampage when he went to Pride

    Rampage > Chuck
