    List some fighters you think can no longer remain at the top, but used to be. Watching Jim Miller steamroll David Baron who choked out Sakurai reminded me how many guys are basically done at this point. I know this happens in every sport, but I sometimes have to remind myself that some of these guys are probably done at this point

    -Matt Hughes
    -Mach Sakurai

    Mark Coleman, Mark Kerr.

    I know somebody is gonna say Crocop, but this is totally not true.

    yeah, Kerr has been done for years though

    I basically meant guys that have been "passed" in the past year

    I just don't think Leben's style is ahead of the game. He is predictable and beatable, he just posses that knockout power. I don't think he really dominates a fight with his style like GSP or Silva do.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::bowdown: I still enjoy him more than Phazel.

    Oh sorry that's how I was interpreting this thread lol. I was assuming it was people who's styles just got passed.
