Who Has The BEST Takedowns In The UFC?

i was rewatching the kos/jos fight and joe saying that kos's takedowns were better then matt hughes and unstoppable, so who has the most unstoppable takedowns?
I'll go with the ncaa division I champ josh kos. just so powerful and can always finish those takedowns once he gets in.

tito gets stuffed by good fighters. i think sherk is because i dont see how any 155 pounder besides bj penn can stop him from taking them down.

Kos is so explosive. You can just see it by watching him that he has better takedowns than Hughes. Joslin has good takedown defense but he didn't have a prayer at stopping Kos.
Kos wrestled division 1 and went undefeated his senior year and lost only a handful of matches in all 4 yrs, always placing at least top 4 in the nation. That's just crazy good. Hughes was a good college wrestler but never a national champion like Kos.
