I would have said the Rua brothers but Ninja's current bad form drags them down.

Not gonna flame you, I think Aleks has a shot, but Mirko is just a bad style matchup for him. It's really never a good idea to stand and bang with a world class kick boxer.

Also, wasn't there some sort of visa issues with having Aleks fight in the US? I remember hearing that since he has a felony they wouldn't let him in, but I don't know if that is really how it works. I can't imagine the Japanese are very lacks on that sort of thing...

Nogueiras, they have sick submission skills, good boxing and hard chins; it makes them very tough to beat.

Ken in early years of UFC was a nightmare for his rivals.

I guess historically speaking, you have a point, but I think you'll have to admit that once the rest of the playing field caught up to the Shammy's they didn't seem as formidable any more. Most MMA fighters wouldn't be where they are today if it wasn't for the likes of the Shamrocks and the Gracies, true pioneers of the sport, but as far as champions go, Big Nog was a dominant HW champ before Fedor came along and many people will argue that Rog Nog is the #1 contender for Wandy's belt (because Silva and Shogun won't fight). So my vote sticks with them.

Unfortunately the Shamrocks have both turned into the butt of many jokes. Ken's 3 beatings he got from Tito only really tarnished the fighters previous highly held status, especially with newer fans. And his constant complaining about early stoppages (vs. Tito; vs. Saku) just make him look a little on the whiney side. And Frank just talks too much and does too little, may just be the best example of wasted potential in MMA. Damn shame.

There's one brother combo no one is talking about is the DIAZ brother's, who will rise to the likes of the Nogs or the Emelianenko brothers.....haha.... Well they possibly might go down as not being the brothers who "aren't no Bitch" quoted by Nick Diaz himself, if Nathan has the same attitude Nick does.

I have to go with the Nogs. Both top 5 or higher at their weight classes. Also, I think both would be in the top 25 if their ever was a world open weight grand prix.


No way. Fedor and Aleks. Clearly #1 and #6 at weight classes. Plus Fedor is pretty much unstoppable. And ALeks is the badass.

We might actually see this if Nick returns to the UFC.
Nate is rumoured to be on TUF5

sly and frank stallone, seriously it's gotta be the shamrocks based on their whole body of work, but the nogs can surpass them if they continue to win, maybe even by the end of the year

I disagree. Alek's has lost 2 of his last 3 fights, and no longer trains with Fedor, Fedor even smacked him some in interviews. Until he goes back to Red Dvil I don't see him in the top 10.
