I look at the caliber of who they have been fighting, the way they have won, and other "fan" friendly.. but yes.. I think Sokodjou would beat Rashad and Jardine.

He could but his performances lately dont suggest him being ranked anywhere near those two...

Your top ten sucks!!!!!!!!!!!

Rashad and Forrest are a lot higher than that.

I think Rashad is alright coming out of this, he acknowledges he got beat down, made plenty of mistakes and is not the first and was complacent.

As he says a loss will be the best thing to happen to him. A platitude perhaps but a very true one.

Rashad is talented and just fought the worst game plan ever against Lyoto.

I want Rampage to win, but other than that i'll keep rooting for Rashad.

I really dont get all the venom in the post. He jokes that he was thinking Machida don't hit hard, he aint gonna KO me, then says it he said "you hit like a bi......" and then bang im out! He was awake thinking, my body won't move, oh no i have lost.

He is joking about it and i respect that a lot, he knows he got beat down. I know many of you now can now revel in it but the hate surprises me!

1. Machida
2. Jackson
3. Evans
4. Griffin
5. Shogun
6. jardine
7. cain
8. lil nog
9. Babalu
10. Franklin/Jones

This is accurate.

Spriti your ranking is horrible in my opinion. A lot of it doesn't make sense. Even the basis of which you rank them doesn't even seem to be used in that list. Sorry dude but your just completely wrong

I'll go into more detail. Fighters in RED I agree with.

1)Lyoto

2)Quinton

3)Chuck (As much as I love Chuck he has no business anywhere above 7-8 on a rankings list for the divison)

4)Wanderlei(Wandy also belongs much lower. The only person he has beaten lately is Jardine)

5)Renato(Has not beaten anyone except Soko who I don't think belongs on this list)

6)Rich(Love rich but he lost to Hendo)

7)Hendo(Around 7 or 8)
8)Nog (Not top ten right now)

9)Rua(Doesn't deserve top ten right now. Close but not yet)

10)Sokodjou(Doesn't belong here)

11)Jardine


12)Cantwell(too green to be top ten. No where near Forrest in terms of skill or achievements


13)Rashad(belongs much higher. Knocked out chuck, and Tkoed Forrest.)


14)Jon Jones(Has not fought anyone yet)

15)Forrest( You are out of your mind. He beat Page and Choked out Shogun. Really truly putting Forrest at 15 in the division is crazy)

Jardine
Cantwell
Rashad
Jon Jones ( a friend of a friend actually.. this guy will be known REAL soon.. seen him train.. IMG.. we call him the You tube fighter)
Forrest


Cane should be in there some where.. but I just can't get a good "feel" for me.

Krzysztof should be there also.. but his will come with more time in...

If you take Chuck out of the mix... they still don't make my top 10.
Didn't your sensei tell you to stop smoking the wacky weed? Passing the peace pipe around the circle once was fine, but now you're getting crazy with it.

2. Rashad Evans
3. Quinton Jackson
4. Mauricio Rua
5. Luis Arthur Cane
6. Renato Sobral
7. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
8. Rich Franklin
9. Forrest Griffin
10. Tito Ortiz
11. Thiago Silva
12. Matt Hamill
13. Steve Cantwell
14. Jared Hamman
15. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou
16. Krzysztof Soszynski
17. Mark Coleman
18. Keith Jardine
19. Wanderlei Silva
20. Muhammed Lawal
21. Rafael Cavalcante
22. Chuck Liddell
23. James Irvin
24. Eric Schafer
25. Stephan Bonnar
