Close but I would say you have to add Great Takedown defense. Even though no one has been able to do it yet if someone who had strong striking could keep a fight with Shogun standing and out of the clinch they can beat him but even guys with great striking have been unable to beat him because he finds a way to get them to the ground. (Nogueira, Overeem x2, and Diabate)

Babalu
Good Matchups: Guys that have a worse striking game than he does. Guys that want to take it to the ground. Guys that have bad TD.

Bad Matchups:REALLY good punchers. Also, when he goes with the "Screw what I'm good at, let's do what the other guy wants me to!"(*cough*liddell fights*cough*)

Ooooh Babalu... so much potential...too much choke holdage...

Anderson Silva

Good Matchups: He does pretty well against anything, but best against those who are willing to standup with him.

Bad Matchups: Flying Heelhooks and underdogs with losing records (I'm excluding the Okami loss, 'cause that was bull).

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Honestly Babalu is probably if not the best one of the top 3 LHW's in the world on the ground behind Nogueira and Shogun. If he would just be smart about his stand up realize it sucks and apporach fights the way Shogun does minus the clinch he would be a top 5 LHW. unfortantly he doesn't and he makes a lot of bad decision in fights which cost him.

fedor
good matchup: Old greco-roman wrestlers (coleman)
bad match up: randy. You know why????
Just cause he's randy; that's why.

For all those mma fans talking bull about randy, the heck with you. Randy is a true ambassodor for the sport. If i had my chance, i would hug him so hard for the great things he's done for mma and the country. Dont hate on him; it aint cool

seriously man give a reason I see arguements why Randy could beat Fedor but because he's Randy isn't one of them.

Just like because he's Shogun or because he's Fedor is retarted because he's Randy is just as dumb.
