your right. the ufc definetly has the prime athletes. i agree with the list EXCEPT for fedor. i just dont think hes the top guy anymore. dont get me wrong, im a huge fedor fan i just think hes lost some credability in the HV div. alot of people will argue with me about this but i think alistair would destroy fedor. sorry to all the diehard fedor fans out there but you cant be king forever.

It is only a matter of time before Fedor loses, but so far he was not defeated.
Verdum is a tough HW and anything can happen.
Or Fedor might in deed be destroyed by Overeem.
But if he keeps winning, he stays on the top. End of story.

So Lombard and Hornbuckle aren't in the top 20 . I personally disagree with about 90 percent of this list. Like Aoki number 5. I would put him like 15. I would put Alistair at 3. Diaz 4. Alvarez 5. Hornbuckle 6. Sobral definetely doesnt belong on this list. Bigfoot should replace him. I could see Lawler in the bottom part of this list. Filho
