He also ran through Slice, Sweeney and Wren so he's got that five fight win streak going on for him. While none of the five guys who he's beaten are world beaters the fact that he crushed all five of them with all five being UFC caliber guys, I'd put him in the top ten.

And as I've said before the guy is two wins away from being the undisputed number 1 fighter in the world. Just breathe and say...it's only 3 more weeks it's only 3 more weeks.

Because the rest of the top 20 looks like this

Big Nog - I don't think he can beat anyone in the top ten and I think a number of guys in the top 20 would beat him (Russow, Rothwell, Hague).

Ben Rothwell - couldn't put away a weakened Gilbert Yvel, if Velasquez beats Lesnar then I can support him as a top ten fighter.

Mike Russow - looked like crap against Hague and pulled a come from behind victory.

Tim Hague - looked good but still lost his fight

Mirko Cro Cop - the Pat Berry win was nice (and added more prestige to JDS's win over Cro Cop) but he still has loses over Kongo and Gonzaga.

Cheick Kongo - flawed game and was murdered by a lower ten Frank Mir

Brett Rogers - was wrecked by Overeem, and with Fedor losing Rogers drops like a stone (he might have to fight Lashley next)

Gonzaga - Is 0-4 against the top ten, his only big win is Cro Crop

Randy Couture - undersized and moving down to LHW he might be able to beat several top 20 guys but why would he want to?

Stefan Struve - his record isn't that bad, he's got raw potential

To me everyone who lost to Werdum gets a bump due to his beating of Fedor, while the guys that lost to Fedor take a dip. And give Silva credit, he's got a good record (14-2)

First none of those are actual fights. They are exhibitions and don't count on a fighters record. Secondly none of those guys are any good.

What you said about NOG is not true. I think there are some guys in the top 10 he can beat. He can beat Overeem and Silva. He's already proved he can beat Werdum. There's no way Russow, Rothwell, and Hague don't get submitted by NOG.
