Guys, have been thinkin recently, due to lack of coverage on this side of the pond etc, and probably a lack of interest on my part, I dont know that much about MMA other than UFC guys, which of course doesnt really educate me on the legacies of some of these guys before UFC came along. I'm probably the kind of casual fan that Dana White likes, the ones that are unaware of other fighters apart from his and just fall into the trap of thinking that Anderson and GSP are the daddies and thats it. Truth be told the only guy im really aware of outside UFC is Fedor. Having read some of the threads here tho, its clear that a lot of you more hardcore fans hold the UFC and its "legends" in some contempt, so if any of you guys could discuss who are the top guys throughout MMA, maybe p4p top 20 or something, it would give me a platform to seek out some footage etc when bored.

Cheers guys.

p.s, Warlord, allow me to start you list off for you

Man how good is Jose Aldo. When brown beat faber back to back, there was no-one who i thought would be able to do to him what Aldo did. Aldo is a explosive aggressive striker, and supposedly the striking is his 2nd weapon. Havent even seen his ground game, as at this stage its not even necessary. Before i get too high on him, he needs to make a few more defences to solidify my perception of his talent, but the future looks very bright

I have GSP as number 1. The guy is just so consistent.

Penn is a better fighter than Edgar, but he just got worked. Edgars gameplan was well thought out, and applied to perfection. Shall be interesting to see how Penn regroups and adjusts. The speed and movement of Edgar is going to give him trouble a 2nd time around as well. Anyone who tries to make a fight of it with Penn is commiting suicide, but Edgar raised serious questions about his ability to close the gap on a nimble sharp boxer (obviously Edgars wrestling is what allows him to have confidence in his striking, safe in the knowledge that he can escape the clinch).

Shogun is on a resurgence. I still think he needs some more wins after that poor performance vs forrest. Legitimate reasons for that showing obviously. And there is no questioning his dominance over Machida. Shogun may have permanently wrecked Machida's confidence

I agree about Aldo i am very high on the kid right now. After he beats Gamburyan i really would like to see him move up to the LW divison and take on the top guys there cause i don't see anyone at 145 being able to do anything to him.
