    I don't really follow UFC but I'm trying to get into It due to Boxing corruption and no one wants to fight etc.

    Top 5 heavies of all time?

    How good was Brock, Stipe, Cain, Overeem, Fedor, Mirko? Ive heard Fedor was a bear inside a human

    For my $:

    1.) Fedor
    2.) Stipe
    3.) Cain
    4.) Werdum
    5.) Tough call, Big Nog or Mirko. Dos Santos gets this spot if he beats Francis Ngannou.

    Cain was really formidable in his prime, but he lost a lot of time to injuries and also spent a lot of time fighting the same opponents, which was a problem because beating Big Foot Silva twice didn't prove much. On the other hand Stipe just seems to combine basic boxing and wrestling with great cardio; not a jaw-dropping guy to watch usually, but his results are awesome. If he beats DC, especially by knockout, and the defends against JDS/Francis winner, I'll really have to consider putting him at number 1

    Werdum has subs over 3 top five guys plus some other great W's, but he's also had some baaaaaaaaaaaad losses. Fedor is probably the goat for most people, but his record was pretty padded (Hong Man Choi, puffed up Matt Linland, pointless rematch with Mark Coleman, Gary Goodridge)

    I agree with who's in your list but I just have different order with Big Nog a lot higher considering his peak was longer then Cain,Stipe and Werdum combined and he beat everybody during a 10 year period before he joined UFC apart from Fedor,also during that period the division was quite a bit stronger then it was during those other guys primes.
