Daniel Cormier vs Cain Valasquez
- I think Cain wins by being relentless and by being the much quicker fighter. Close one though.
vs Gilbert Melendez - If the Nate that tore Cerrone up showed up for this one he takes it. Gil is good but I'm not sold that he is top 5.
Lyoto Machida vs Anderson Silva-at LHW - Couldn't call this one. I think it is razor close. They have never fought fighters like each other. Lyoto by far better than anyone Anderson has ever faced. Same thing for Machida.
vs Jake Shields- at 180lbs - I have Nick by domination.
George St. Pierre
vs Rory Macdonald - Rory has nothing for GSP. He would be beaten standing and grappling.
Renan Barao vs Jose Aldo
-at 145 - This is a good one but I think Aldo is a better striker and that's where this fight would take place.
vs Joseph Benavidez-at 135 - Faber is better wherever this fight goes.
Glover Texeria vs Lyoto Machida
- Glover has been impressive but has done nothing to make me think he can hang with Machida.
Antonio Silva vs Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - tough one for me. I think Nog is the more skilled fighter for sure but his age and how he has declined is what would worry me.
