Out of that list, I'd say Anderson Silva or GSP. I would also add Cro Cop and Vitor Belfort.

i wont include Fedor or anderson silva, since their mental game has always been one of their strenghts, and have never showed weakness in that aspect.

When 100% focused the most dangerous are Cro Cop (mental is his biggest weakness), GSP, and BJ penn.

Good point, I picked Anderson Silva for how he has looked recently, but I also thought what you did and that is why I added GSP, Cro Cop and Vitor Belfort. When they are mentally focused and prepared they will virtually destroy whoever is in front of them.

I'm a huge CC fan, but I don't think mental is his biggest weakness (although it is one of them.) I also don't buy into the fact that he was fighting notably better competition in UFC. I think it has more to do with how the cage does not suit his style, whereas the ring completely compliments his striking. He will always be able to go and fight great in a ring, but until he switches up his style a bit, he will continue to have problems in the octagon (whether he is mentally prepared or not.)

Cro Cop. When he considers winning his only option, he is unstoppable.

bj, he has ko power with good technique as well as the best jiu jitsu in mma, most talented fighter in the world imo. gsp, silva and fedor are close but bj is the most dangerous.

Shogun. I know a lot of people may think I'm crazy but I do believe that if healthy and focused he is the best and most dangerous fighter. He's strong, aggressive, awesome jj and muay thai.

I believe Frank Trigg said it best on one of the PRIDE FSN shows. "When Kevin Randleman is focused, I don't know a man in the world who can beat him." But when he's not he's as easy to beat as Ross Pointon.

but out of that list, you got to go BJ Penn, you saw how easily he took out Jens and how he made Joe call him, his daddy. He also dominated GSP until he gassed and when he's focused that cardio will be top notch and I think he could finish GSP in a rematch. The only person who can beat BJ at Welterweight or Lightweight is GSP by LNP and that's only because he has longer limbs. Nobody else can hang with him.

100% agree. How he looked in the 06 OWGP was rediculous. BJ Penn is also very tough to stop when he's 100%

The problem I have with these threads is that they reward fighters with inconsitent performances like Cro-Cop, Belfort and Randleman over fighters who consistenly perform at a high level. When these guys lose to some of the best fighters in the world (2 each on that list have losses to Couture and Fedor for example) it's assumed by some people that they just lacked mental focus and would have won otherwise. I don't think so. The best fighters when focused are the best fighters, period. Fedor, Silva, GSP, Penn and Yamamoto are guys high on that list.

I think Bj has longer arms, his reach is only an inch shorter than gsp's but gsp has a way wider chest structure.

Randy and BJ

Couture lost his edge in LHW with personal issues but got it all together and got the HW title

Bj didnt take fighting serious as he should of but now is one of the best in the world (not that he wasnt before )
