TheMentalisT - I like the 5 that the OP named. I will add a few.

Chris Beal

Michael Page

Mirsad Bektic

and lots of others with more than five fights like Joe Ellenberger(Jake's twin), LHW Max Nunes, Andre Fili(Team Alpha Male), etc etc
Thank you!!! I am excited to see Michael grow his skill base. Dude strikes like a boss. Him vs wonderboy Thompson would be unreal. Phone Post

No problem. That would be a crazy kickboxing match with MMA gloves! I would love it. Page is set to fight for Bellator in March.

He set the bar pretty high with that tornado kick KO in his MMA debut last year. Cant wait to see what he can do in Bellator.

Im assuming he would fight at 170 and Askren would wrestle-fuck him into oblivion at this point in his career.
I think you are pretty much bang on with that analysis unfortunately. Phone Post

I second this.

Also Isaiah Chapman at 135 is a beast. Look up chapman vs Kempf if your wanting to see one of the best fights of 2012 Phone Post
