Pretty good list though I myself would Have Lyoto moved back, and miguel and Florian wouldnt be on my list at all.. The otehres seem to be in their proper places. If Anderson, George, and Fedor arent in your top 5 you have mental issues :)

Jacare? Seriously? I think hes a great prospect but to me hes still untested against top competition and therefore shouldnt be near a P4P top 20.

Great Question. Very easy. I scored that fight a 47-47 draw. I am totally cool with Forrest having the belt, but I think it would have been more appropritae on Rampage. And look at his ranking. They are close.

very very controversial fight, i my self thought Forrest lost but when they announced it i was happy, i just think that the fighters w/ the UFC belts should be top 5 automatically , thats just me

See Im looking at a deeper level. I dont constrain my self to limiting things, thats why I got guys like Machida and Jacare so high. And Miguel Torres has to be a no brainer to be top 10 pound for pound. Are you kidding me? Is he not one of the most dynamic exciting fighters? Kid Yamamoto starts fighting some top guys he is right up there.

When i was watching the fight and counting the rounds, I had Rampage ahead on rounds.. but Forrest looked like he won the fight overall.. so technically I think Rampage shoulda won via decision in judges rules.

nice

I would put Nog higher and replace Florian with Gomi

Also, not sure about Jacare as a top-20 right now, but I would also put Wandy higher than him, that's a no-brainer.

Thank You. When it comes to fighters of this strength in the sport they are so close to each other that relevancy of has to be placed in as well as with actual accomplishment. Das Ry. I see a couple of choices I made where thought with how I think they will do going forward, but I have a strong feeling. Its all in good fun.

Nice list. Your gonna see in a few week Fitch get manhandled by GSP, hes not top 20. I love Randy. He is one of my favorite all time fighters. But that is too high. I still have him in good graces as you see on my rankings pal. Franklin has not been doing enough aginst opposition not named Anderson, and Machida should be ranked top 10. FoSho.
