I would understand if we were talking about guys like Fedor that never stepped foot into the UFC. But the guys being talked about have all fought in the UFC and won fights in the UFC. So for those people I personally think accomplishments not in the UFC should be a factor. Not the only factor of course which is why Fedor shouldn't get consideration.
Also what I was saying about your comparison is I don't like it because of variety of other factors, to me it's more then just saying it didn't happen under this logo.
Since there are major differences in your comparisons like skill level and eventual ownership. Since Arena League and NFL are not related businesses and PRIDE and UFC are. I was just pointing out that I think there are other key factors other then being in a different organization. IMO it matter that the separate organization feature equal or better talent and it also matters that that organization was eventually bought out and folded into the UFC.
Ok forget the comparison.
The point is if it is only fighters who have fought in the UFC, it is meaningless as there are Hall of Fame fighters that aren't and weren't in he UFC. So it isn't actually the best of the best. It's just the best of whoever Dana and company thought should get in.
