JZ also fought Masato and didnt get knocked out, so his chin has definately been tested.

I have to agree. And I thought Kid's last fight kinda sucked at first, but then I watched it again and if you forget the fact that it didn't end in devastating fashion like his fights normally do, he picked Bibiano apart the whole time, and was escaping submissions like they were nothing. I was glad to see him fight a good JJ guy, and see him not get submitted. I wish Kid would fight for WEC and just fight Faber so we can who's #1 for real. It's hard judging how good these FWs really are until they start fighting each other.

I think Kid smokes Faber on the feet. I see him landing the same overhand right he did on Royler Gracie. That's the crazy part about Yamamoto, that he should be fighting at 145 but flatlines guys 1-2 weight classes above him.

JZ for me. He's won two grand prixs now and is the top of the class for his weight class. Akiyama should get some consideration. Outside of fighting Jerome he's been impressive. But he's a hw kickboxer fighter a middleweight judoka...

Shaolin isn't the best in Heros but he's a really good fighter..... i would say he's the 4th best fighter out of your list by far.

JZ's on another level. Seriously, no guy is touching dude right now in K-1. Extremely talented and is total contender material in the UFC.

JZ takes it, as much as I want to say KID. He is easily on another level. I'd also say he's the most overlooked, great fighter there is. He gets no press and you hardly ever hear of him, even on the Forum's.

Kid is awesome, but based on recent performances and activity, JZ takes this one. He isn't just beating the competition right now, he is tearing through them. And these guys are far from cans too. JZ is the total package, he is a handful in any predicament and can finish the fight at any time. I think he would overwhelm all the low and mid tier guys in the UFC lightweight division. Against the top guys he would put up good fights and would certainly have a chance to win.

HERO'S should merge with M-1, like now, then fully take over MMA as we know it.

Need- as in necessary?

I don't drink my own urine because it's necessary. I drink it because it's sterile, and I like the taste.

I also like the taste of M-1+Hero's.
