I've allways thought about this who would of done better if they would of dropped or gone up in a weight class to possible title or HOF stattus in ufc OR any other promotions.

im pretty sure this was asked before but please bare with me im still a noob ill post my top 5 here I really would like to see your input on this.

1: Fedor I would of loved him to go to 205 he got a taste of real competition in the states and almost got flattend by Arlovski then the losing streak.

Lets face it he was a small HW could have dominated at LHW in his prime

2: Chris Lytle at Light Weight his boxing is mint and his submissions are insane but highly underated. Given his experiance im sure he could of hung with GSP

He could of torn that division apart with his skills

3: Renato Sobral a great submission artist but he could of went down at 185 not many of them there alot of point fighters or strikers would of destroyed alot of people on his way.

4: Matt Hughes i would of loved to see this guy go at 185 when he called out Matt glass jaw jobber can Lidland he would of imo dominated Frankland and take out Tanner but against an Anderson Silva it would of been a loss.

5: and my final pick Rashad Evans Like him or hate him this guy can bang and ground and pound i wouldl ove to see a super fight at 185 he did a stint at HW he got the title at 205 Lost twice but his speed, foot movement and wrestling could be a threat at 185.

I'm only going to comment on Fedor.


Fedor DID dominate at HW. Losing a few at the END of your career is nothing to be ashamed of. Happens to everyone.

Lyoto Machida at 185 He likes his baby fat too much

1. Fedor. I agree. I would have loved to see him try 205 out.
2. Machida. There are a ton of fights at 185 that I could get excited for.
3. Rashad Evans. Same thing as Machida. There are a lot of interesting match ups.
4. Frankie Edgar. I know he's doing it now but I've been waiting a while to see him try 145 out.
5. B.J. Penn. He's fought at 155 a bunch of times but I wish he'd just stay there.

I just don't think he should have moved down. Fighters move down for 2 reasons.

1. Clean out division
2. Can't win because their size prohibits wins

Neither apply to Fedor. But I get your point because all of this is based on opinion.

My bad man didn't mean to turn it into something its not



Back to the topic.

A glaring fighter for me would be Anderson Silva. He needs to move up. It's just a shame he is "almost" done

he did clean out a division..... thats the point i was getting at in pride he destroyed everyone! so its logical for him to have gone down hes gone up and fought Super HW's

george112 » Posted 1/24/07 7:00:00PM

Well since he didn't go to the UFC which was the stable for the majority of the ranked heavies I personally wouldn't say he cleaned out the division

also if thats the case then

Rank Fighter Points Received
#1 Anderson Silva 20.30%
#2 Chris Weidman 15.39%
#3 Chael Sonnen 14.09%
#4 Vitor Belfort 11.48%
#5 Michael Bisping 11.24%
#6 Tim Boetsch 7.19%

#8 Mark Munoz 5.43%
#9 Alan Belcher 4.70%
#10 Yushin Okami 4.53%
Honorable mentions: Brian Stann, Dan Henderson, Hector Lombard

andrson silva is not the best MW in the world and has yet to clear the division so that logic is completely flawed!

again Missing the point Entierly!!!!!!!

There is competition for Silva at MW?

Back to the topic.....Babalu at MW would have been great, saw him vs Lawler and he looked awesome!
Rashad Machida and Shogun could all make MW most likely and do outstanding I think.
Edger....of course....that conversation is a mute point as of now.
CroCop at LHW could have been really scary.
Silva's move to LHW should be now and be against Jones.
Lastly I have to say I am glad to see BW and FW come out so strongly in the UFC.....those divisions are long proven to produce great fighters!

Easy one.....

Chael @ HW - - - only to add to his (P)erfect legacy
