Dangit forgot about Phil Baroni, I would definitely chose him over Amar Suloev. And I didn't put Frank Mir because ever since his return hes been crap. Marcio Cruz deserves to be on the list more than Mir. By the way where is Paulo Cesar Silva :laugh:.

Yup Josh Neer just fought his last fight at WW against ... Burkman i believe, he said after that fight he will be competing at the 155lb division which i think is perfect for him

Josh Neer is a welterweight but I don't feel like he is one of the top 5 after losing to Josh Burkman. He maybe is 7th if Sherk and Penn are lightweights.

You mean Sherk and Penn because you originally said Neer is a welterweight.

Look at my list again , i have Josh Neer at #5 in the LW Rankings.

BJ Penn at #3 in WW Rankings. Penn's rumored opponent fights at WW which means he might be staying that division...
