1. GSP
2. Jon Fitch
3. Thiago Alves
4. Jake Shields
5. Josh Koscheck
6. Diego Sancheck
7. Karo Parisyan
8. Carlos Condit
9. Mike Swick
10. Matt Highes
11. David Baron
12. Nick Diaz
13. Jay Hieron
14. Nick Thompson
15. Chris Lytle
16. Matt Serra
17. Yoshiyuki Yoshida
18. Marcus Davis
19. Paul Daly
20. Brock Larson

I think Hughes should be somewhere above Karo. He only lost to GSP #1 and Thiago #3. I think he would do well against Kos and Swick but I fully understand he is on his way out. Good list though.

Nick Diaz is a big one for me. Maybe somewhere between 9-13.

Yeah but you have to ask yourself, what has Matt Accomplished in the last Year, 1 Win over Chris Lytle is a Great Win to have but that's all he's done in the last couple of Years. And I think he'd do well against Swick too but Kos would beat him. His Wrestling is a lot better.

Everything is pretty good except Swick.....he is not top ten. Maybe about 12 or 13 just above Hieron but nothing more yet.

Condit needs more high profile Fights and Diego already beat Nick

How is Jake Shields all the way up at #4? He is a great fighter, but rankings are based one what they have already accomplished. In his career he has 1 win over a current top ten fighter, and that was Condit 2 years ago.
