Default Heavyweights: All Time Top 10

Fedor
Nogueira
Cro Cop
Junior Dos Santos
Josh Barnett
Randy Couture
Pedro Rizzo
Fabricio Werdum
Cain Velasquez
Igor Vovchanchyn

I just threw out to first 10 names to come to mind. That is roughly the correct order. This list is not set in stone. I may alter it after some debate. I like to do my rankings with a bit of discussion, because it makes me feel more secure about where I've placed them.

It gets tough. I just threw Igor out there, but he probably belongs in a pioneer group more than he does my current mma list. Lesnar also makes things a little difficult. Mir has been around a while, but I believe that Lesnar and Carwin have proven to be better. Lesnar also holds a win over Carwin.

I'm also starting to doubt my Werdum ranking. I'm starting to wonder if I'm factoring how good I think he has become recently as opposed to how much he has really done. I thought he beat Overeem, but I'm not overly impressed with Overeem's mma accomplishments. I thought the Bigfoot fight could have gone either way. He definitely didn't look like he was any better of a fighter than Bigfoot the night the faced each other. Werdum has a huge win over Fedor, but is that enough to carry him high on an all time great list?

I think a lot of people don't know/have forgotten him. Rizzo accomplished a lot and I believe he is unknown to many of the new fans. Maybe I will start a thread about him.

Well Josh is on the probably based on his Nog & Randy wins. Werdum beat Fedor and has as many comprable B-level wins s Josh. Id have no problem with putting him in there. Maybe after this generations round robin is over in a few years he wont place so high, but for now his resume is the second strongest in MMA imo

Is Fedor the universal choice at #1?

How can you count Barnett's win over Randy?

Yeah, it's just like that.

Cro Cop beat Herring, Vovchanchyn, Randleman, Coleman, Aleks Emelianenko, and Josh Barnett. Make that 3-0 against Barnett, who makes a lot of people's all time top 5. Cro Cop stopped Wanderlei and Barnett on the same night.

I wish the beave would stay away. Go do some research and come back when you have something to offer.

Because they fought and we have the result. A result that wasn't overturned by an athletic commission. I've seen commissions overturn fight results over marijuana, and they left this one alone.

Am I supposed to discount any of Couture's wins, or do I just look the other way because his dealer has a better education?

In all seriousness, I wish fighters would not cheat. I just don't see this being the reality, though. Many fighters have cheated, still cheat, and with all this trt stuff; it appears they can do it with medical clearance.

Anyway Rek...the top ten, slept on it and still cant place my last two. Thought about Brock a little, cant really put him in there for beating Randy after his lay off, Herrings run going into it was shit, but a good win for a rookie non the less, that leaves Murr and Carwin, just cant do it. There's probably justification that the injury too away his strength, but based on the pre-illness performances Im not sure he'd win against Cain, probably Reem too. And Murr was coming back form a motorcycle accident anyway...hmmm
