    A lot of people on here are throwing this new trendy term around the heavies. Is there a set definition of this term when talking about UFC fighters?

    If you make at least $10,000,000 per year, you are A level.

    I'll give you MM and Dodson, but Rockhold and Cerrone are great fighters despite being slightly above average athletes.

    I realize you've got a 2005 account, but calling A-level athlete a new trendy term is like my 101 year old grandmother just discovering that her phone stores phone numbers.

    Manute Bol was dark, but not very explosive.

    Sub-4.4 40-time. 36" vertical. 30+ reps on the 225 bench. Great hands. Oh wait those were just Vernon Davis' combine stats... God he was a freak early in his career.
