7. Carwin
8. Bigfoot
9. Schaub
10. Fedor

1. Carwin is ahead of Mir, Mir wouldn't last 90 seconds in a ring with any K-1 level strikers. I don't think Mir could beat anyone on your list.

2. Overeem over Lesnar right now is insane. Lesnar has fought a murderers row of opponents and while he hasn't looked great he still won most of those fights. If Overeem wins the tournament then he'll be considered for a top slot but not now.

3. Schaub might be a high prospect but Nelson still beat him and Struve that puts him ahead of Brendan.

Carwin lost his last fight, Mir won his. I agree with you on Mir though, I think he is going to get beat by Roy. I also don't consider Struve to be that good, he's not really beating guys like Kongo or Gonzaga who aren't that great in their own right, instead he's beating the Morecrafts and McCorkles of the world, where Schaub is beating Gonzaga and likely to beat Cro Cop putting him on a four fight win streak.

And, Lesnar lost his last fight, Overeem has won his last couple, Lesnar probably isn't gonna beat Dos Santos either. The Werdum fight won't be a cake walk by any means for Overeem despite what some people think.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

Sherdog fails are no longer surprising. This is just another example of their inneptitude.

Struve is at the same spot Cro-Cop is right now. I love Mirko but a win over him (especially how ugly the fight was) doesn't grant Mir any upward movement. Reem is hot right now but he hasn't beaten a ranked opponent I don't think you can be in the top slot based on potential.

Lesnar can make the arguement that he holds wins over 2 guys on the list, so can Werdum and JDS.

Yeah, I don't see how schaub would make the top ten at the moment.

struve and nelson would rank higher than schaub IMO.

LOL funny


Who has Werdum beaten that's better than... Werdum?

I think Werdum is right behind him but even if one person in this SF tourney cleans house, they'll still be #3 behind Cain and Cigano. Hell, Struve would probably beat Barnett/Rogers/Sergei/AA.

WAR CIGANO

Firstly Lesnar aint 2.

Werdum beat Overeem and Fedor so he should be top 3

Cigano has no big wins other than Nelson

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

The List is a joke, it don't shit, seriously that reflects the skill levels of the HW MMA world about as much as drawinng names out of a hat would.

This is how it really is.

Cain
Overeem
JDS
Werdum
Big Foot
Fedor
Lesnar
Carwin
Sergei
Mir/Rogers Its a close call for the final spot..
