Canada's Top Ten MMA Fighters?

According to an article put out today in the Winnepeg Sun, the following is a list of the top MMA fighters to come out of Canada...


10. Mark Bocek -- UFC lightweight. The pride of Toronto, Bocek, 26, is a black belt jiu-jitsu fighter with a pro record of 5-1. He takes on The Ultimate Fighter 6 winner Mac Danzig at UFC 83.

9. Mark "The Machine" Hominick -- WEC featherweight. Hominick is one of three London, Ont., natives in the Top 10. Hominick has also fought in the UFC and TKO and as both a lightweight and featherweight. His record is 15-8 and he holds notable wins over Jorge Gurgel and Yves Edwards.

8. Jonathan "The Road Warrior" Goulet -- UFC welterweight. Noted as much for his knockout blows as his ever-changing hair colour, this well-travelled Quebecer has a 21-9 record with nearly half his wins by knockout or stoppage. He takes on Kuniyoshi Hironaka at UFC 83.

7. Kalib Starnes -- UFC middleweight. B.C.'s Starnes is 10-3-1 as a pro and has found a permanent home in the UFC after appearing on Season 3 of The Ultimate Fighter. A mostly self-taught scavenger of many styles, Starnes takes on Nate "The Rock" Quarry at UFC 83.

6. Chris "The Polish Hammer" Horodecki -- IFL lightweight. Undefeated in his first 11 fights, the London native suffered his first loss last December against Ryan Schultz. At 20, Horodecki is the youngest in the Top 10.

5. Sam "Hands of Stone" Stout -- UFC lightweight. Stout is a stand-up specialist. The third London fighter on the list made an immediate impact in his big-league debut at UFC 58 with a surprise victory over Spencer "The King" Fisher. Stout has a 13-3-1 record and takes on Rich Clementi at UFC 83.

4. Jason MacDonald -- UFC middleweight. The Red Deer, Alta., prison guard shocked the fight world by choking out The Ultimate Fighter fave Ed Herman. MacDonald has since defeated reality show stars Chris Leben and Rory Singer, earning him the nickname TUF killer. He takes on Winnipeg's "Dirty" Joe Doerksen at UFC 83.

3.Denis Kang -- K-1 middleweight. Kang has been racking up wins for the past decade in Pride, K-1 and Spirit MC. The Korean fighter, who was raised in Vancouver, has amassed an impressive 27-9 record with the majority of his wins coming via submission.

2. Patrick "The Predator" Cote -- UFC middleweight. Quebec's Cote got a surprise initiation into the UFC in 2004 when the virtual unknown was called on as a last-minute replacement to take on Tito Ortiz. Cote took Ortiz the distance but lost. He holds notable wins over Kendall Grove, Scott Smith and MacDonald.

1.Georges St. Pierre -- UFC welterweight. Without argument the top Canadian fighter, he boasts a 15-2 record. He's an accomplished striker, wrestler and jiu-jitsu practitioner. Since his title loss to Matt Serra a year ago, St. Pierre has proven virtually impenetrable, outclassing both Josh Koscheck and Matt Hughes. St. Pierre looks to regain his title at UFC 83 in a rematch against Serra.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Anyone disagree? I personally thought that that Joe Doerksen deserved a place on the list...

Seems pretty fair, however I think Kang and Cote should switch spots for sure.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, I think Kang is a more solid fighter than Cote. But no doubt GSP deserves the number 1.

Am I the only one that doesn't really see anything in Starnes?

David actually won his last fight by UD I believe. I know he won but whether it was by UD or SD I can't remember.

Edit: Check it out here, David won by UD.

How can Loiseau not be on this list? Other than that it looks ok. Maybe Jeff Joslin instead of Bocek.
