Couldn't have said it better myself!

In shape + motivated = best in the world (today) IMO

BJ Penn looked really impressive against Stevenson...It would be a hell of a feat if someone beats him, though not impossible.

Sean Sherk is terrible and a cheater, ive never been impressed with him and i think any of these guys will be able to beat him IMO
Wow. It's one thing not to like a guy, but to say Sean Sherk would lose to any of those fighters with the exception of Penn is outrageous.

I dont think that this question can be answered at the moment. There is a bunch of high calibers at both the ufc and in japan. They need to fight against each other before an answer can be find.

The Best in theWorld?

I'd have to go with BJ Penn. Only, and ONLY when he's motivated for the fight and in shape for it...I mean, did you see him against Stevenson? He wasn't even breathing through his mouth! Amazing! When that guys in shape, he's in shape! Plus he's got the strength of a welterweight, unbelievable flexability, heavy hands, solid chin, sick submissions, the list goes on and on...
the other people I would give some credit to are:
Tyson Griffin
Takanori Gomi(so-so)
Gesias Calvancante

I would like to say Gomi cos hes my fave but due to inactivity.........it has to be JZ. He's the LW who has done the most impressive things recently.

Stop saying BJ you damn TUF n00bs! Beating JoeDaddy does not the no. 1 LW make.

AndyHI, I think you might have missed the Stevenson fight. Seriously, am I the only guy who realises his cardio looked like shit in that fight? The guys lungs amost collapsed. Maybe ye were too busy looking at his abs.....

JZ is the #1 LW in the world right now IMHO. He has been completely mauling good competition on a regular basis. He is the complete package with solid to great skills in all areas and he is an absolute monster size/strength wise for 155. You put JZ in a fight against any other LW in the world right now and I'm picking JZ.

JZ Calvancante and it's not even close (well that's IF he beats Aoki)

Can I throw up Ishida as well, just because I like the dude so much?

You certainly may. Unstoppable Tackle FTW!!! Not to mention that the dude rocks a seriously stylish Cauliflower Ear.
