I think Dan is still up there but he seriously needs to put another win streak together. As for Daley, his going to Strikeforce will probably determine if he deserves to be in the top ten!

If he can rip through Masvidal and Diaz he'll prove it..

The problem is I don't think he will.

You know now that I think of it...

K.J. Noons is at WW in STRIKEFORCE now..

How is that for a strikers ball..

I really think Diaz is going to knock Noons back to lightweight, literally. This is one of those things where Diaz is at his natural weight rather than coming to Noons weight. Noons is overweight at WW and should concentrate on taking the title from Diaz's stable mate, Melendez, which I'm not totally sure he'll be able to do but the Noons/Diaz fight is definately going to be interesting!

I don't think he'd have a prayer against Gilbert either... Melendez would dump K.J. on his head over and over again..

More like on his back but I maybe wrong. Either way I don't think Noons really has a place in the new Strikeforce. Maybe in the new Bellator! Hehehe!

I think K.J. is jumping in too deep right now..

He should have built his brand by going after guys like JZ, Thompson and Evangelista first..get some momentum and go from there...

This fight can help him hit a brick wall fast.

Bellator? How fun would K.J. / Huerta be? I'd love to see that fight..

Yeah, that fight would show if Noons is slightly capable of fighting in the UFC. If its not even close we know he shouldn't even look at the UFC!

I would put Jason Miller in there too. I feel that he would tear through most of the Middleweight division until he got to Belcher/Marquardt/Sonnen.

"Corazon de un Leon"

To whomever keeps deleting my sig, the size is 408x220 the rules state it must be smaller than 420x220, thus i am not breaking the rules.

Hands down, personally I have to go with Jacare. Unfortunate he was so careless against Mousasi (but still so green in MMA), or I think people would be pressing a lot harder for him to be signed by the UFC!

The only two guys that could be considered top 5 in their divisions that fight outside of the UFC are probably Melendez and Werdum.
