I think Shamrock is the best, he submitted Henderson in a submission wreslting match like nothing, i think he is the best right now, then my second pick is nick diaz. But someone u needed on the poll was Mark Hunt... he is definitly the best...

I can name many people who are better in their weight classes than Shamrock outside of the UFC : Barnett, Soko, Arona, Linland, Kang, Gomi, and many others are all better in their weight classes than Shamrock is in his IMO.

EDIT: I realized you probably meant best out of that list so sorry exclude my post.

ohh damn, how can i forget joachim hellboy hansen, i would love to see him in the ufc, mach sakurai too...

and of course Lil nog, i hope he comes to the ufc, and i would like to see murilo ninja rua too, i think it would be a good addition to the ufc's MW division since its one of the ufc's weakest divsion....

I said Kid, without a doubt.

But there are fighters like Jake Sheilds, Ninja Rua, Robbie Lawler, Matt Lindland, Denis Kang, Mark Hunt that are still in the pool.

Robbie Lawler, are you kidding me, he does not have a single win over a top 10 fighter. Never.

He is one of the top dawgs in EliteXC.
He is not a top dog by an overall standing, but in the company itself he is one of the top dawgs.

Urijah Faber is not that good to be honest either, he really has not fought TOP NOTCH competition, but yet, I probably would not stand a chance with any of the people he fought, for the simple fact that I could not drop to 155, my 6'4 Frame wont let me. Im no Corey Hill.

Kid Yamamoto, hands down.



Especially now that he says he will fight at 143.I think he will be more dominant there than Fedor is at HVY.

Well I'd pick Yamamoto from that list, even though he is training for the Wrestling for the olympics last I heard, I still think he has great potential to trash people in the MMA ring.

However, Barnett, Hunt, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Arona are all great, and yet still floating around, having not yet been scooped up by UFC.

Come on what about Brok Lessner??? Just kidding.. out of th elist I like Faber and Filho... Nick is fun to watch, he is always so pissed off.

faber? no 145 lbs division in the ufc and he would get destroyed by most 55ers in the ufc and his lose to tyson griffin was in the summer of 05, for peachfuzz.

gilbert melendez
jake shields
paulo filho
