Thumbs up My Top Ten

The criteria for me are contributions to MMA, win loss ratio, and finally titles won:
1) Takanori Gomi-PRIDE Lightweight Champion, Shooto Champ.
2) Shinya Aoki-DREAM and WAMMA LW Champion, Shooto Champion
3) Hayato Sakurai-Defended Shooto LW Title 7 Times
4) Norifumi Yamamoto-K-1 HERO'S MW Grand Prix Winner
5) Caol Uno-Former Shooto Welterweight Champion (154lbs)
6) Yoshihiro Akiyama- 2006 K-1 HERO'S LH Grand Prix Winner
7) Kazuo Misaki-PRIDE 2006 Welterweight Grand Prix Winner
8) Hidehiko Yoshida-PRIDE MW Grand Prix, Semi-Finalist
9) Kazushi Sakuraba-UFC Japan Tournament Winner
10) Antonio Inoki-WWWF World Martial Arts HW Championship

That's in my opinion anyways!
