Who do you think is the best LW fighter?

Who do you think is the best LW fighter in the world?

I'm very curious about this because the LW rankings have so many nominees.

Personally, I think Gomi is the best LW fighter in the world. I'll be the first to say it, I think Gomi can dominate if he comes to the UFC.

I think it's JZ Calvancanti and I don't think it's close. He is so strong and his ground game is fantastic, his stand up is excellent, the guy just dominates. He's the only 155'er of the top 3 (Gomi, BJ, JZ) who has been facing top notch fighters lately and he has been trashing everyone.

You're going to get plenty of different answers.

I'll go out on a limb and say Tatsuya Kawajiri will be the #1 LW in the world after he runs through the DREAM LW GP. Crusher has the style to be very competitive in the UFC too, because he has great wrestling and is a huge LW.

But as for now, its JZ. He's so damn good.

Strictly talent wise, BJ has to be tops. He has the most talent at 155, even more so than JZ...and thats saying something.

then obviously your stupid. Theres no way Gomi could compete with the top LW's in the UFC. In fact i would probablys give a good up and comer(nate diaz, lauzon etc.) to beat him.

If this is the world then it should probably be in "General MMA" not "UFC" section.

Its hard to put Gomi top based on recent performances, since the Aurelio first fight, which was in 06, only split decision in the rematch and beaten by Nick Diaz, good against Ishida though who is very good.

So i think its either BJ or JZ at the moment, that is a dream fight for sure.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

3. Manny Gamburyian
4. Tyson Griffin
5. Joe Lauzon
6. Rich Clementi

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

Gomi would have trouble, a lot of trouble imho. I hate to say that because he is in my top 10 fighters list, Gomi is awesome.

BJ Penn is the best LW by far, I think.

Yeah, he's stupid for having an opinion.

We don't need that kind of crap around here, so don't attack other members please.

I don't understand how this makes me stupid?

Am I stupid because Gomi is ranked #1 on most Top 10 lists?
Am I stupid because Gomi is the Pride LW Champion?
Am I stupid because Gomi has outstanding accomplishments in the LW division?
Am I stupid because I think Gomi has tons of potential even if he had a poor showing against Diaz?
