From the choices given, I voted for Wanderlei although it was basically a coin flip between him and Chuck.

WTF is Tito doing as a poll option?

Chuck Liddell for sure, right now whether you like it or not he is invincible until proven otherwise. and it hasnt been proven otherwise.

Oh yeah, fights more than 3 years ago dont count, so dont quote my message saying "One word..Rampage" or something. thats just wrong. :P

He is a strong LHW, remember he used to be a HW.
LOL, big red tomato.

Shogun to me is the best LHW in the world right now. His ground game is improving alot, he has great takedowns, and we all know how good his striking is. He's also alot younger than any guy on the poll. He completely wrecked Rampage already. He did lose to Babalu, but that was over 3 years ago and he was only about 21 at the time. He's improved. alot since then, but I think he'd take a rematch.

Wanderlei Silva is far ahead from chuck. First of All Look at the kind of competition they faced in the last 7 years (Mirko Filipovic 2 time Kazuyuki Fujita Kazushi Sakuraba Ricardo Aurona Quinton Jackson Hidehiko Yoshida Mark Hunt Dan Henderson Guy Mezger)

Second of all Chuck didnt face Any reel competition for the exception of rampage and he lost.

I don't know about you, but I consider Sobral, Horn, Couture, Belfort (in prime) and Mezger (in prime) to be "reel" competition ...

He also beat Monson back in the day as well; Liddell's resume is not something to mock. I just can't believe anyone would say that Silva is way ahead of Liddell. I think if the fight took place, it would be a pretty close match.

Randleman.
Mezger.
Suleov.
Bustamante.
Babalu(Twice).
Overeem.
Couture(Twice).
Ortiz(Twice).
White.
Horn.

So, to you, this isn't "real competition"?

Not to beat a dead horse... alright I'll do it. That statement is WAY off base. I would make the claim that as of late Chuck has been given competition that matches up poorly against him (grappler, grappler, grappler, grappler...), but to say that Chuck hasn't faced any real competition is just plain absurd.
