I know people are going to blast me for this but i still believe shogun is the top LHW in the world. of course i have rampage ranked number one, he deserves it, but i believe that once shogun gets his act together he will rise to the top of the division again. but if he gets beat by chuck then my opinion will probably change

Under the current rules that the ufc follows, Rampage.

Under Pride's rules over seas, Shogun ( By a longshot)

Good call the format or rules of each org. really impacts who is or what style is the best.

Right now I would say Rampage but this division is so stacked things can change in an instant.

I like Chuck alot but seeing how Chuck was trashed by Page twice I don't see how you can say that. Care to elaborate?

Edit: Page is on top now but Shogun has the most skill by a long shot.

Until someone steps up and takes that belt from him, you have to say Rampage, you might say other guys have better skills or whatever, but they have to use those to prove they're the best. Chuck, Shogun, Wanderlei, Machida, Jardine, and Griffin are all very close, they just need to step up and then we'll see.

They already had a rematch and he got KTFO again. 3rd time wouldn't be any different, the 4th time wouldn't be any different.

Rampage hands down until Shogun gets his act together. Or until Machida actually beats a top 10.

i feel the same way. i have rampage at number one because i always rank the guy who is the champion of the best HW division #1 in the rankings (HW is an exception because of the talent outside of UFC). i also believe that shogun has the potntial to be the best again so i rank him at number two. i feel that if he beats chuck, he prove that he is back in top form again with no knee or personal problems and would continue to beat rampage again and any one else in the division for a while. it is funny how easily people forget his accomplishments after one loss, look for shogun to rise to the top at the end of this year.

i think at the moment its rampage but give him 2 more fights and it will machida

I would have to say Rampage as of now. He is the champion and nobody has knocked him off yet. But, if and when Lyoto Machida gets a chance at him. I think it may be a different story.

LHW is the best weightclass, has the top fighters, right now i believe its Rampage standing on top and griffing right behind him.. .

As far as rankings are concerned, Rampage is the best. But Rashad is the most capable of beating anyone else in the light heavyweight division. Well rounded and tough as $hit. Everyone always says they're unimpressed by Rashad. I was, but as he fought more fights, I see him fighting a smart fight every time. It may not be the most entertaining fight, but he fights to win. Even if its by points, he'll win. He's still my pick for LHW champ by the end of this year. I'm not the only one who thinks so. (Greg Jackson... somebody with much more credibility than me).
