I've been saying that for a while now. Good to see people agree with me.

Franklin? Franklin is still being questioned? Uh, replace him with Misaki please.

this is something for philosophers to discuss. it is unanswerable. taking into considerations fighting styles backgrounds and questioning maybe the fighter just had a good or bad night.

to hard to say who is the best of any weight class. this is why many organizations have best of 3 fights.

im a franklin fan all the way, silva=perfect striker but this is a big bandwagon for the most part. people seen this awsome striker clean house on leban, who i might add isn't that great heavy handed yes technical no way. then silva did pick franklin apart with that wicked clinch but i still lean towards franklin.

we could fight this question all day and night and come to no conclusion.

I'm still voting "Hollywood" Dan Henderson even though I'm pissed he hasn't defended his belt.

Guys the question is whos the best, not who you like the most... personally i dont like Filho's fighting style, which is the exact same as Arona.. Those guys arent brothers, but they sure fight and look the same way.. super body built, agressive strikes and agressive takedowns, then control ur opponent all the way down the ground. But like it or not, both of them are strong, and their style has proven to be hard to beat.

A. Silva is great standing up, his guard is pretty strong(i think he calls it the spider guard?), but no way hes that dominant against a guy like filho. If hes smart, the best he can do would be some kind of Arona vs Silva 2, and that wasnt one sided at all.

Filho might be a bad match up for Silva but perhaps Anderson would be able to fight him from his back. If you think about it great striking + great bjj is as good as great striking + a great sprawl.

I still think both Filho, Lindland, and hendo are bad match ups for Silva, Silva is a bad match for Kang and Franklin(obviously), Hendo and Lindland are bad match ups for Filho. So I guess that leaves the Team Quest boys battling it out for number one according to that analogy but I dont I think I'd still put Filho at #1. This weights impossible to rank.
