1. Chuck Liddel
2. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua/Wanderlei Silva (Untill they fight, which will most likely never happen, I can't say who is better, too many variables.)

Just because your not fan of Rua means he isn't that good? I didn't even see the poll the first time. I'm a huge Babalu Sobral fan, but him and Tito, and maybe even Rampage, don't even deserve to be on that poll. Babalu is a beast but best in the world NO F*CKING WAY!!

I take it you've seen rampage fight, in which case you would know that he's the only person who's beaten but never lost to chuck. i see your point about tito after that griffin fight but babalu is one of the best in the world. rua is awesome and he should be on there but i could only have 5 choices sorry.

Right now it's easily Chuck Liddell.

Chuck has been on a hot streak, and has defeated great LHW's like Babalu, Couture, Horn, & Ortiz. All in convincing fashion. To be the man in the LHW division, you have to beat Chuck Liddell.

Shogun is a guy who is rising up the ranks. Call me crazy, but I actually think Shogun is technically better than Wandy.

IMO shogun is the best and should be there instead of babalu every other fighter on that list could take babalu but then again you're too busy hugging his nuts to understand that
