    Maia, Woodley, Colby, Kamaru, Niel (arguable)

    Does WW have the best depth in grappling talent in their top 10?

    I think MW is a good argument too

    Yoel, Weidman, Rockhold, Souza.

    Neil Magny? Lol, his grappling doesnt work against the top 15.

    Till, RDA, Wonderboy, Lawler, Ponz, Jorge, Cowboy, Edwards?

    Great pedigree in the guys you mentioned, sure. But wrestling-heavy division? Not imo.

    EDIT : Didn't see top 10, so discount Cowboy and Edwards.

    Neil shouldn't be on that list imo. But Colby, Woodley, and Usman are all beast wrestlers.

    Gunnar is also a pretty good grappler, though I'm not sure what he is ranked nowadays.

    I rewatched Woodley vs Shields, and that was a shitty match, shitty performance.

    I'll never forget Magny out grappling Gastelum, and then being the first guy ever to finish Lombard. Lombard was like 6th in the world at that point too after a big win over shields.

    Might be MW. Romero, Rockhold, Weidman, and Jacare, and then add this species to the mix.
