I would say maybe Karo. He just oozed raw potential and fell apart before he could put it together. And I am much bigger fan of many of his opponents, but damn did he seem like he was on track to be a force at one point. Phone Post 3.0

All the Team Alpha Male guys, think about it. Mendes, Benavidez and Faber all are stuck at #2 or 3 in their weight classes and just can't seem to get it done in the big fight.

Gator Choke - Mach Sakurai or Igor
Wasn't the Shooto title a big deal when Sakurai had it? Phone Post

Yessir, but with the OP posting " Pride or UFC belt" question, I tossed Sakurai on there. He WOULD have IMO had he not got hurt in the car accident. .

Crocop unless the pride gp counts.

Also i guess he did just recently win the k1 as well.

An argument could be made for Jon Fitch Phone Post

Gotta go with HORN. That dude fought "Lion Heart" style in parking lots in front of suits hung with the best for a long time.

Never did have great abs though...suppose that could work against him in this poll.

Kenflo for sure

He was a perennial contender and very exciting. I thought for a second maybe Fitch at one point, but Kenny was so exciting and seemed to get better every non-title fight. He just never seemed like the same guy when fighting for the belt. Just stomped everyone else. He even took fights while waiting for his shot at the belt. I remember him saying that if he's the best than why not take another fight, he should win if he thinks he's the best.

Best all around choice, great fighter, very exciting and an interesting career. Phone Post

Hmmm, convincing argument all around. I was only thinking about in the cage. But so much about being a great champion outside the ring. Kenny defiantly carried himself like a champion at all times. Phone Post 3.0

Kenny Florian.

 

/thread

Yeah I know but I don't know. Just rewatched the Penn title fight. He was so out classed. Didn't fare much better with Aldo...I'm not sure if Kenny was the best number 2 guy out there :-/ Phone Post 3.0
Actually, re watch that Aldo fight again. I missed that fight live and remember people saying he was thoroughly dominated. I watched the fight and thought that it was a lot closer than people made it seem. His striking looked crisp and he was in shape. He just seemed to be tentative, and Jose's movement may have surprised him, he need got his distance and timing down. But he looked damn good in that fight. Phone Post 3.0

If Sakuraba qualifies, then it shouldn't be close between him and Florian. Phone Post

KenFlo was a Zuffa teacher's pet who got favorable matchups unless it was for a belt or a #1 conte see fight.

Pedro Rizzo was the best fighter not to ever be considered the best of the best. Phone Post 3.0
