Now that BJ Penn has retired and Big Nog is (in my opinion) so far past his prime he is borderline shot, my favourite fighter is probably Lyoto Machida, though I am a huge fan of Shogun Rua, Nick Diaz and Junior dos Santos as well. And although I never used to like him, as times goes on I am appreciating more and more the true greatness of Anderson Silva. He rounds out my top 5 current fighters.

I don't have much affection for Dominick Cruz, but I think he is a really high-class, high-skill technician, rate him very highly indeed ability-wise.

No love for Melendez in here? Can't wait for him to start fighting in the UFC.

I am a Pride nostalgiaist. Current favorites are Hendo, Overeem, Shogun, Rampage, Barnett, Hunt.

Keeping an eye on Cormier, King Mo, Melendez, and Mayhem Miller. Yeah he's not near the best but the dude can fight!

It would probably be big Nog if he was prime, I still root for him in every fight as I did when he was prime but the current version isn`t as good to watch.

My answer is Nick Diaz & Shogun Rua.

Its too hard to name just one or even make a list but I'll try. Its the sort of thing that for me anyway changes all the time, just depends how I'm feeling.

In no particular order:

1. Alistair Overeem
2. Anderson Silva
3. Jose Aldo
4. Shogun Rua
5. Fedor Emelianenko(always, I dont care how he's done recently)
