Your top 5 GnPers

What fighters, past and present, would you put on your GNPer top five list? Here are mine:

1) Tito Ortiz
2) Matt Hughes
3) Fedor
4) Evan Tanner
5) Cain Or Diego (amount of punches per second, not damage)

Edited title.

I don't think I'd have Matt Hughes in that at all. Pretty unsure about Evan Tanner as well. I think old school GSP (the one that fought Trigg and Sherk) deserves an honorary mention, and Mark Coleman deserves a spot (he is after all the "father of GNP"). Jonny Bones is deserving of an honorary mention too.

To be honest, it's pretty damn hard to do such a list, because GNP is pretty widely used with pretty good success.

I guess opinions differ, but I definitely think both Evan and Matt had nasty GNP. JBJ is certainly getting up there as well and could surpass most on my list. Also I was this close to adding GSP, but post Hardy GSP didn't allow me to do it.

Mark Kerr was pretty nasty back in the day. I remember what he did to top can Varelans.

Fair enough. I just wish GSP would show all his haters once again that he knows how to GNP and finish fights.
