Sure left a lot of people off the poll IMO.

On the poll, I'd say Sherk. Urijah Faber looks fairly untouchable right now, too.

Of those people on that list om gonna go with Sherk on the hope he doesn't loose to Franca and make me look ridiculous just on the sole basis he has the the best chance of defending his title in his weight class making him the most dominent in IMO but id put sum other people on there Like Hughes who destroyed the WW class.

From the list I'd say Rampage or Sherk. Things could get interesting for both of them with Wandy, Shogun, Penn, and Franca in the picture.


BTW, does anyone know whats up with Penn? Has he confirmed going up weight, staying at LW, or what? IMO, he could be the dominant champ at LW if he does decide to stay there.

The question should read "who has the best chance of being dominate."

I would say Sherk. He is big/strong for his weight class. He can control a BJJ guy (florian) or he can take down a striker to nullify their game. The only problem I see for Sherk is Penn. I think Penn isn't going to fight at LW so Sherk is the easy choice.

However, Fran err Frank could be the most dominate simply because he will be fighting slightly less talented fighters in a lower level org.

I gotta go for Sherk, he is the most dominant champ in the stacked LW division, and I dont see him being beat anytime soon. He isnt bein stopped.

Who is the dominant champ?



Not one fighter on that poll has a title defense recently. All have just won their belts.
Not to mention you spelt Ninja's name wrong and

FRANK Shamrocks name. No offense..... but you can't spell Frank?

I think someone like Anderson Silva should be on this poll .
Or for instance probably the most dominant champ to date.......

FEDOR!!!!!!!!!

I also agree on Faber, but out of those I went with Sherk, just because except for Penn, and maybe Stevenson, no one is at Sherk's level of competition just yet. There are fighters out there like Franca, Fisher, Huerta, Griffin, Guida, Florian, who with a couple more solid fights could rise to be competition, but right now, it'd pretty be much like Florian's title shot, in which they are trying to just survive Sherk, and that's what I believe will happen with Franca.. So i'd go with Sherk.
