some good opinions. i'm pretty much in all agreement.

except i'd rank bj penn as #1 lightweight and then put serra in #3.

also, ricco has potential to beat nog but i don't think he can do it as of yet.

I had to edit my rankings! In the Heavyweight division I had Coleman at #4 and Randy Couture at #5. I chnaged that. I now have Heath Herring at #4 and #5 is Coleman.

Welterweights I had Pat Miletech at #4 he has now dropped down to #5. Gil Castillo was at #5. He dropped out. Frank Trigg is now at #4.

At the Lightweight division I had one change. Caol Uno was at #4. He isnst in th top 5 anymore. I replaced him with Matt Serra at #4.

Honorable mentions for each weight.
HEAVYWEIGHTS: Bob Sapp and Randy Couuture
LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHTS: Ninja Rua and Rampage Jackson
MIDDLEWEIGHTS: Sakuraba
WELTERWEIGHTS: Anderson Silva and Gil Castillo
LIGHTWEIGHTS: Caol Uno, Din Thomas and Genki Sudo

I want to point something out. I feel at the Lightweight divisoin that Antonio McKee is the best at that weight. Unfortunately nobody will give him a shot. He is very deserving at a title shot at either Pulver or the winner of the BJ Penn/ Caol Uno fight. I would have him ranked #1 but he has no title. Give this man a title shot and you will see what I am talking about.
