I'd say Rampage at the moment, the guy is tough to finish and obviously a world class MMA athlete. The only question with Rampage (still IMO) is his heart, and how long he plans on staying in the fight game cause I'm still not sure.

Besides that I'd say Shogun, but again there are a lot of questions hanging in the air after the 3rd knee surgery. Besides that I think that Minotauro could rack up a couple more big wins.

Either Anderson or Rampage for me. People might pick shogun but I honestly can't see how they can, he has had 3 knee surgerys in the last 2-3 years, so that is a big question mark going forward.

Shogun, if he doesn't get anymore injuries!
And Mousassi...but he is far from what i would call a "PRIDE star"!
He is a former Pride fighter.

And from that list, i would say only 25% could be called "Stars".
The rest are just normal fighters.

Interesting question. Without doing any research I'm gonna say Overeem. Of all the the pride stars he's the one who appears to be on the rise as opposed to on the decline. Everyone else who I would consider a "runner-up" for this distinction is either slightly or considerably past their prime i.e; Anderson, Shogun, Page, Nog) .

Alistair I'd say.

Maybe Shogun if his knees don't have anything to say about that.

Shogun wont last long imo, his knees are jacked to bits.

Probably Mousasi, he is only like 24 or 25, he still has a good 10 years ahead of him.

I'm going with Mousasi or Alistair, but most likely Mousasi.
