Mine would be,

1. Randy Couture ->knows how to dismantle his opponent. Truly inspirational
2. Anderson Silva->he's on video game mode
3. Royce Gracie-> shaped MMA for what it is today
4. GSP-> one of the all time greats
5. Shogun Rua-> His pride form is that scary
6. Mirko Cro Cop-> Pride form=human highlight reel
7. Fedor Emelianenko-> A rare breed of fighter, too bad.. He won't be fighting in the grandest stage of all
8. Clay Guida-> though lacks the technical aspect of the game, but he makes it up with heart, and he always puts up a show
9. Wanderlei Silva->Dude comes in to brawl
10a. Brandon Vera-> can't help but to show some love for my fellow countryman
10b. John Fitch-> though boring, dude is one of the elites. knows how to break down his opponent

special mentions; BJ Penn, Sean Sherk, Jose Aldo, Jake Shields, Gerard Mousasi, Dan Henderson, Matt Hughes

Never been a fan of Tito, though his after fight antics are flashy, always thought he's a one dimensional fighter

I didn't mean Alistair was better than Fedor. Alistair just on the K1 Grand Prix title & is a freakin animal. However, Fedor is.... well Fedor is Fedor.
Strikeforce better have them fight in 2011. They're messing around & MMA fans are missing out.

nah, what i meant was i thought you love Fedor too. Hahaha.

Well i really do hope Fedor ends up in the UFC. He's gonna end up rotting in strikeforce, rotting and rusting.. like seriously, outside the fluke of werdum, he has no competition there.

Rumor has it he's fighting Bigfoot Silva in January. I think that will be a great match. He's got to fight Overeem & avenge his lose to Werdum. That's 3 good fights for him. Thing is, he has one fight left on his SF contract. I just don't see him going to the UFC. His management team & Dana White have thrown much mud at each other.

for me the best of all the three would be Overeem. Yeah, but i'm still optimistic he'll end up in the ufc. I mean dana's been talking BS to almost everyone and some of them end up fighting for him so you know, money talks.

In Fedor & Overeem, SF has 2 of the best HW's. They need to put them in the cage asap.

Royce is the greatest of all time.

He never lost a fight in his prime and the only loss on his career during his prime was in 1994, when he was injured. He won three out of the first four UFC tournaments. He defeated multiple opponents in the same night with no judges, few rules, no weight classes, and no time limits.

No other fighter has had the impact that Royce had on MMA. You can't even fight in MMA today without some knowledge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Royce is a legend, a true pioneer of the sport. When he was using his BJJ, it was like he was in a car & others were in a wagon. No one could keep up or know what to do with him. BJJ was so unheard of back then.

However, i don't think a prime Royce would have the same amount of success in MMA today.

^ Indeed, the evolution of MMA made the sport as more competitive than it was before. You're talking about a guy that can stand and strike while can submit you on the ground, Before it was like a battle of disciplines, but now it's a battle of MMA. Kinda cool when you look how the UFC has taken form today

^ I was thinking of how it use to seem cool to me back in the day with different disciplines for different fighters.

Karate vs BJJ
Brawler vs Grappler
Wrestler vs Striker

It was almost like a video game.
