    Heavy Weight - Fedor
    World Combat Sambo Champion 4 years streight, 29 - 1 MMA record (his one loss being controversial due to the reasoning behind it). Has beat some of the biggest names in the HW division like Cro Cop, Big Nog, and Tim Sylvia. The last HW Champion of Pride FC and the curent wamma hw champion. Fedor is the real deal. Some of the best greound and pound in the game and he flows fluidly from striking to take downs and from ground and pound to subs. His style is flawless.

    Light Heavy Weight - Lyoto Machida
    Machida has an amazing pedigree. A strong shotokan backround, BJJ and Sumo. He was taken under the wing of Antonio Inoki who shaped his mma career. He has defeated alot of talented big name guys such as Bonar, Rich Franklin, Tito Ortiz, Bj Penn, Vernon White, and sam hoger. His striking is capable of handeling world class strikers like Sam Grecco and Michael McDonald. Machidas the real deal.

    Although he isnt every ones favorite fighter to watch, his talent and effectiveness is undeniable. There arent many fighters in the UFC or MMA that I can see beating him.

    Middle Weight - Anderson Silva
    When it comes to the question, "who is the pound for pound best" many people will answer Anderson Silva. One of the most technical strikers in mma anderson has been dominating the MW division and has even made an appearance in the lhw division. He has defended his title 4 times and is the most dominant of the current UFC Champions.

    Welter Weight - Georges St. Pierre
    He's Champion of the most loaded ww division in MMA. He has cleaned out the ww division and has beaten greats such as Karo Parysian, Jay Heiron, Frank Trigg, Sean Sherk, BJ Penn, Matt Hughes, Matt Serra, Josh Koscheck and John Fitch. His record is a whos, who of mma and he has lost twice in his 19 fight career. Many say that what we've seen from GSP is just the tip of the ice berg.

    Light Weight - BJ Penn
    A former UFC WW champion and now the current UFC LW Champion, BJ Penn is one of the few people who made their mma debut in the UFC. BJ has dominated the former UFC LW champion Sean Sherk, TUF winner Joe Stevenson and dominated UFC legend Jens Pulver. He has also gone toe to toe with GSP and has beaten Matt Hughes.

    [​IMG]

    Feather Weight - Mike Brown
    An ATT veteran mike brown has fought some of the best in mma and was one of ATT's best kept secrets. He showed the world what he could do when he came in the cage and took Urijah Fabers title in a humiliating manner.

    [​IMG]

    Bantam Weight - Miguel Torrez
    With a record of 34 - 1 Torrez is nothing to look down at. He has a more dominant record then Fedor and always comes out prepared and ready to fight. Torrez is the current WEC Bantam weight champion and totes the mexi mullet ftmfl

    Yeah seems pretty accurate, although the light heavy is too stacked to make a definite call on just yet.

    i agree with your picks ripper. i think machida is tops for LHW (the others are pretty easy calls imho) because im not sure rampage/forrest etc. have the answer for machida..

    FUCK YEAH

    edit: actually, i think faber could beat brown in a rematch :o
    and wtf is going on with kid these days?

    Brown beats urijah 7 of 10 fights.

    Did you see how he bugged out on that glancing blow before the kd? He wants none of that.

    I'd like to see Mike Brown do a little more before calling him the best Featherweight. That's almost as stupid as calling Matt Serra the #1 WW after beating GSP the first time.

    LHW is the only one that is a toss up. I think the other division rankings are spot on.

    wins over renatto tavares and yves edwards are impressive especially now that he has faber on his list. He has only lost to top tier guys too like hermes etc
