    Current lineup is all under 6' tall so yes. It would be better if they were shorter

    Prime GSP, Anderson, Jones and Cain easily beat their successors imo.

    Aldo five+ years back was also quite a bit better than he is today. Much less mileage. Would be a different fight vs Holloway imo

    So I don't think todays champs can compete. They are really good though.

    But that line up is just legendary. We won't see anything come close in a while imo.

    Weaker at the top, but stronger at the bottom imo

    Not convinced Anderson beats Whittaker either

    Who cares lol

    It's just food for thought. And awesome memories.

    And almost all of those old champs are now GOATs of their division or at least close in the discussion. All GOAT candidates are there except for Fedor.

    Pretty remarkable that they were once all champs at the same time. Best era of MMA so far imo.

    Probably not. Edgar is actually the weakest link, incredible.

    I cleaned my contacts and still can't see the picture. Awesome lineup though, and the best so far.

    That really was a special era

    Seeing GSP, Aldo, Jones and Silva at the same time is something most new fans really just can't understand
