Anderson Silva, Rich Franklin, Matt Hughes, Karo Parisyan, Diego Sanchez, Andre Arlovski, i personally think Sean Sherk, Jon Fitch, .. all of these for sure
(plus your list)

Possibly rashad evans, tito ortiz, Babalu (even though he lost to Lambert)

this is all i can think of right now

Really? I dont know i would say Karo and Rich for sure. Franklin is 21-2 in his career with his losses coming against Silva and Machida. On MMA weekly he is in the top 5, i dont know about that but top 10 for sure.

Karo has only lost twice in his recent history as well.. to GSP and to Sanchez. They might not seem like the best when you look at just them, but if you put them against other guys in their weightclasses they would definitely hold there own

AA, GSP, BJ Penn, Sean Sherk (debatable), Chuck Liddel, Randy Couture, Cro Cop, Karo Paryisian, Matt Hughes (cannot believe he hasn't been mentioned yet), Rich Franklin, and maybe Anderson Silva.

alot of the old skool fighters i think are world class the ones that been it for a while. I think matt would do better as a light weight though plus he's a world class wrestler not a world class fighter.
Iceman
Randy
quinton
Crocop
