    uno should be higher up that list, he kicks so much ass but just seems to have seriously bad luck

    I think he could beat any of the nine people above him on his day. He was dominating both kid and hansen before catching a knee and the cut.

    :werd:

    if he didn't shoot in on hansen and just dragged it out for another 10 seconds, he would've gotten all three nods

    and what the hell is josh thomson doing there? he's fought, what? once this entire year?

    the rankings on that page look good to me, I am just surprised quinton is ranked so low. He did beat chuck before...

    i think dan henderson could beat rich franklin...and i think silva should be over shogun...i don't think tournament matches(silva vs arona) should have any bearing on these kinds of rankings...only 2 rounds

    i've only seen one of his fights :hs:

    but still, he hasn't fought much lately, so he should've dropped

    i like uno too, but like sato of sorts, he sucks at finishing

    yeah that would be a great fight, I think ninja would probably win that one.

    sato doesn't suck at finishing

    he just goes all out for submissions and usually gets pounded at one time or another during the fight and then loses

    I dunno

    Nakamura's striking is now i think on par with ninjas, his takedowns are better and he's a naturally a bigger guy.

    It would be a great match, tons of scrambling, both have great cardio and love to fight.

    Chuck is at the peak of his career while Quinton though rising is at the bottom. I don't think he's proved much after fighting a can but I do think that when he does climb back up he can beat Chuck again.

    Chuck really needs to have a rematch with Quinton. He has so far beaten everyone that has beaten him. Vengeance!

    liddell relies a lot on the fence, especially if he's on the ground and on the bottom
