UFC Top 10 for each weight class

Recommended Posts

Here is my own personal UFC Top 10 for each weight class. It was hard making it only top 10, but I did my best. There are a lot of really good fighters in the UFC and so many of them haven’t matched up that it is hard to really gauge just how good everyone is.

your top fives are pretty good with these exceptions. the bottom half could be filpped around in almost any order. i like palhares but he needs to fight better fighters.

Good list. Only changes I would make is:

 

LHW Replace Phil Davis with Forrest Griffin. Davis to me still has a lot to prove. His last fight he had dominant position for like 12 out of 15mins and couldn't finish. Also really loose with his limbs. Any decent BJJ guy would have subbed him numerous times.

 

LW Slide out Serk. Move everyone up one and put Evan Dunham in at #10. He's 10-0 and 3-0 in the UFC including that sick armbar finish of TUF winner Efrain.

Who has Gonzaga beaten worth mentioning in the past 3 years? Should not be in the top 10.
