You def get to pick the 8, but GSP is a big WW and could easily fight at 185. To include JD (who is 6' 4" and nearly 240 pounds) in the same group as mousasi is overboard IMO. I'm not sure it makes sense to include someone 30+ pounds heavier (then the 205 class... where most of your picks are from), but not someone 30 pounds lighter.
I like the idea though. I would swap out JD for GSP and someone else for Fedor. Weight plays a HUGE advantage (esp when we are talking 30 pounds) when you compare world class (legends) fighters.
I pick Silva!
