Rank The 5 Best LWs In The World.... And Explain Why...

THIS IS WHAT I THINK THE WORLD LW PICTURE IS LOOKING LIKE RIGHT NOW... I'VE POSTED MY OPINION AS TO WHY...

IF YOU HAVE THEM RANKED DIFFERENTLY POST YOUR LIST...




#1.) FRANKIE "THE ANSWER" EDGAR UFC LW CHAMPION



TO BE THE MAN YOU'VE GOT TO BEAT THE MAN.... AND FRANKIE DID THAT TWICE.. SICK WRESTLING, PROBABLY THE MOST TECHNICAL STANDUP AT LW IN THE UFC....

NOTABLE LW VICTORIES

B.J. PENN
SEAN SHERK
TYSON GRIFFIN
JIM MILLER



#2.) GILBERT "EL NINO" MELENDEZ STRIKEFORCE LW CHAMPION



SAME CAN BE SAID FOR GILBERT... BEFORE SHINYAS LOSS TO "EL NINO" AOKI WAS WIDLEY RANKED AT #2 IN THE WORLD... GILBERT DOMINATED AOKI... HE'S ALSO THE ONLY LW IN THE TOP 5 IN THE WORLD THAT HAS AVENGED HIS LOSSES...

NOTABLE LW VICTORIES

SHINYA AOKI
JOSH THOMPSON
TATSUYA KAWAJIRI
MITSUHIRO ISHIDA
CLAY GUIDA


#3) B.J."THE PRODIGY" PENN



ARGUABLY #2 IN THE WORLD AND STAYS IN THE TOP 3 ON MY LIST BECAUSE OF HIS HIGH PROFILE FIGHTS AND ABILITY TO FINISH HIS OPPONENTS... CAN'T PUT HIM AT #2 BECAUSE 2 BACK TO BACK UNANIMOUS DECISIONS DO HURT YOUR RANKING.....AND UNLIKE GILBERT MELENDEZ HE WAS UNABLE TO AVENGE HIS LOSS AND RECLAIM HIS TITLE..


NOTABLE LW VICTORIES

DIEGO SANCHEZ
SEAN SHERK
TAKANORI GOMI
KENNY FLORIAN
DIN THOMAS


[B]#4.) GREY "THE BULLY" MAYANRD[/b]



UNDEFEATED. HOLDS A VICTORY OVER THE UFC CHAMP...HE CAN LOOK LACK LUSTER IN SOME OF HIS OUTINGS.... AND HE'S NOT A FINISHER, BUT HE'S WINNING.. #1 CONTENDER FOR UFC LW TITLE


NOTABLE LW VICTORIES

FRANKIE EDGAR
KENNY FLORIAN
NATHAN DIAZ
ROGER HUERTA
JIM MILLER


#5) SHINYA "Tobikan Judan" Aoki



SHINYA STAYS IN THE TOP FIVE BASED ON HIS NOTABLE VICTORIES AND HIS ABILITY TO FINISH FIGHTS... HIS SUBMISSION SKILLS AND KILLER INSTINCT ARE INCREDIBLE AND I ONLY RANKED GRAY MAYNARD OVER HIM BECAUSE OF MAYNARDS WIN OVER EDGAR...

NOTABLE LW VICTORIES

EDDIE ALVAREZ
TATSUYA KAWAJIRI
GEORGE SOTIROLOPOUS
JZ CALVANCANTE
JOACHIM HANSEN
CAOL UNO
VITOR RIBERIO
