The MMA draft!

By Josh Reese

 

In the honor of NFL draft here is the MMA draft so here are the Top 32 MMA fighters and a little bit why they are the top fighters. The real question is…. What do you think?

  1. Jon Jones (16-1) He has beaten 1,2,3, count them, 4 former Light Heavyweight Champs in a row, can anyone give him a real fight?
  2. Jose Aldo (21-1) He is running in to the same problem as Jon Jones, no body can even really come close to toughing him.
  3. Anderson Silva (31-4) Sonnen may give Silva a fight, but Silva is the most dangerous striker on the UFC’s payroll and most likely the greatest mixed martial artist ever.
  4. Georges st Pierre (22-2) He may be captain boring but, he wins all the time. Nine in a row exactly
  5. Dominick Cruz (19-1) Like GSP he grids out decisions, I think TUF coach Urijah Faber dubbed the decisionator, but like GSP he wins.
  6. Ben Henderson (16-2) Most people love Frankie Edgar, but Henderson has fought tough competition all the time.
  7. Dan Henderson (29-8)  Henderson is considered the top in like 5 divisions, I think he would move to Fly weight if UFC asked
  8. Junior dos Santos (14-1) He is the best Heavyweight in the world. But I feel the Heavyweight division is really weak.
  9. Hector Lombard (32-2-1) A new UFC import could be one or two fights away from a title shot
  10. Carlos Condit (28-5) The interim welterweight champ. With his last win coming over Nick Diaz he is a top 32 fighter for sure.
  11. Renan Barao (28-1-1NC) The 1st time he fought he lost, since then 28 wins and a no contest, will fight for the belt sooner rather then later.
  12. Frank Mir (16-5) Did you not see him break Bog Nog’s are in half, yeah I think he is back.
  13. Alexander Gustafsson (14-1) He is considered the white Jon Jones with a almost identical record, and could be a fight away from Jones
  14.  Ben Askren (10-0) He is Bellators GSP he would win anywhere unfortunately it is just boring to watch,
  15. Jake Ellenberger (27-5) One of the top Welterweights a great wrestler with hammers for fists
  16. Rory MacDonald (13-1) is young and only moving up the Welterweight rankings only loss to Carlos Condit, and he desperately wants to avenge that
  17. Michael McDonald (15-1) Almost exactly like Rory a title shot is with arms reach KO’d Miguel Torres was a nice stepping stone.
  18. Hatsu Hioki (26-4) He was brought to the UFC to fight Jose Aldo and its coming very soon
  19. Joseph Benavidez (16-2) Dropped down to Flyweight when the UFC opened the division and his only losses are to the bigger Dominick Cruz.
  20.  Fedor Emelianenko (33-4) What list is a list without Fedor, will go down as the greatest to never fight in the UFC
  21. Cain Velasquez (9-1) Went to a decision once in 10 fights, amazing wrestler but has 8 wins via KO/TKO.
  22. Frankie Edgar (14-2-1) People will freak he is this low, but I think he losses points for not cleaning out the division.
  23. Michael Chandler (9-0) One of Bellator’s prized fighters brings his lunch pale every fight and works for a win any way he can.
  24. Gilbert Melendez (20-2) Has pretty much cleaned StrikeForce out of fighters and joining UFC is inevitable.
  25. Vitor Belfort (21-9) His losses came to the best fighters in the world, and is 8-2 in his last 10 fights with his losses to Anderson Silva, and Dan Henderson… Can you really blame him?
  26. Luke Rockhold (9-1) Like Melendez he has ran through StrikeForce like nobody’s business
  27. Chad Mendes (11-1) Would be undefeated if not for that dang Jose Aldo
  28. Nick Diaz (26-8) You could say if he wasn’t high, he might have beat Carlos Condit, he tore through StrikeForce and come to the UFC for GSP, that will have to wait a while.
  29. Jake Shields (27-6) Cross the loss to Jake Ellenberger off and he would be back in the title picture, some people do write off his loss to Ellenberger
  30. Ian Mccall (11-2-1) He was brought in to be king of the new Flyweights and if not for a socreing snafu he’d be fighting for that right next, instead a rematch with mighty mouse
  31. Eduardo Dantas (14-2) The young Bantamweight champ of Belltor could be on top for a very long time.
  32. Ronda Rousey (5-0) Ronda collects armbars like cat women collect cats 7 wins between amateur and pro and all have come via armbar… Would you step in the ring against her? I am not sure the 31 fighters ahead of her would..
