    Lists like these are so darn hard to make. But that sure is a fine list you have there.

    I can't really do an order, but here's my list of five bad dudes I'd not want to have to tangle with. Train with, absolutely... but fight? Nah...

    Mike Tyson
    Royce Gracie
    Yasuhiro Yamashita
    Hee Il Cho
    Kyuzo Mifune



    Note: I'm not commenting on these guys personalities.... I'd just not really want to mess with any of them if they were upset with me.

    You wouldn't have to worry about Hee Il Cho. He ain't about to spar/fight with anyone.

    I sort of remembered you had a... issue... with HIC back in the day. Did you ever get a chance to meet Bong Soo Han?

    By my count, Fedor has beaten 6 UFC champions, as well as multiple Pride and K1 champions and Olympic medalists. I think you have an unusual definition of “bums”.

    No, it's the standard definition.

    All the prior guys he beat that were 'ex champions' were all well past their fighting days.

    Meanwhile he is padding his record with lots of guys with only a handful of fights, no fights, and losing records.

    If you strip it all down he squeeked a couple of decisions over old era guys like nog and crocop, but not much else. People that rate him near the top are just riding hype.

    Fedor had the fastest hands
    The most slick submissions
    The best TD
    The best ground in pound

    To me it is really hard to give a top 5, so I cannot even think about ranking them. It is sort of comparing apples with oranges. I prefer apples, but that’s subjective.

    Anyway, I would surely include Spider and Khabib.

    Mighty Mouse is really good, but is he good for his weight class or really top 5?

    Jon Jones is too good for his opponents that is becoming boring. But should ‘picograms’ matter (when nearly every athlete is on special stuff)? If it matters, he cannot be top 5... (at least until it is absolutely sure nothing wrong was made).

    I loved the stoic looking Fedor. On the other hand, he was genetically gifted and allowed to be a bit of a brawler which is not what I value in a fighter.

    GSP was strategically smart, and skilled in all areas. Actually, I do not know much about this one, but he only did good for MMA and martial arts in general. No headline for bad behaviour, no **** talk...

    This is the only mighty mouse I'm aware of.

    He transcends classification.

    And the majority of his success happened in a league known for its corruption and ties to the yakuza. Funny how as soon as he started fighting state side he started losing very quick.

    Lol no he wouldn't....sorry he just wouldn't...well unless the champ took a dive and was paid off. Daniel Cormier would wreck him as woukd miocic the 2 top heavyweights.....fedor lost to a light heavyweight in Dan Henderson and to Bigfoot silva who frankly is an awful fighter and got tapped out quick against former champion fabricio werdum

    So give me your top 5

    Fedor was a terminator in the day and would have destroyed the current Ufc champ
