5. Rory Markham
6. Rich Clementi
7. Shonie Carter
8. Matt Horwich
9. Matt Brown
10. I've had a lot of guys at this spot since I like a lot of guys but I have Hellboy Hansen currently, mainly because he's very exciting as of late and his quotes on the UFC are rather funny yet inspiring.

I think how you pick a favorite is a better question. Someone who wins and isn't disrespectful.

Fedor, GSP, Machida, Anderson Silva, Griffin.

Agree with you on Cane and Cain, watch out for Gouveia in the MW division, if he decides to get serious about his conditioning and train a little harder for his fights that dude would definitely give Anderson a run for his money. Gouveia reminds me of the B.J. Penn of old, hopefully he'll do what B.J. has done and start training to be a champ. Give Hazelett and Saunders a year or two in the WW division and watch out. Same thing with Nover and Junie (mark my words). Not saying that Hazelett, Ben Saunders, Nover, or Junie will be champ in the next year or so, but they will be top ten and on their way to a shot at least.
