    Hughes, St. Pierre, Serra, Alves, Koscheck, Sanchez, Lytle, Fitch, Swick, Parisyan. Hey its just my opinion based on what I saw last night.
    You did come up with 10.

    He didn't look great last night, but he's had some really impressive wins and his recent fights have been really short against some good guys

    he may have needed a little better opponent. The guy he beat looked good on his feet but he couldn't even get into his guard. I think the guys I named I think are more well rounded and have the ability to fight off their backs.
    But it was only one fight so I will take your word on how good he is.

    Paul Daley is a lot better than people think. He did surrender his guard a lot. However, he was also trained to not roll to his stomach. Shields sets up the RNC as good as anyone.

    I thought he looked pretty good. Again, nobody beats Daley on his feet. He laid out Dwane Ludwig last year when he tried to go toe to toe.

    He also did a pretty good Chris Leben impression in the post-fight interview.

    Crazy to blast Shields for his performance against Semtex. Daley is lethal on his feet and Shields ate several elite level strikes during that fight. If anything, my opinion of him increased a bit b/c it shows what a great chin he has. Daley couldn't pull guard b/c Shields is so skilled on the ground. Let's not forget that Shields easily submitted Nick Thompson (breaking his 12 fight win streak), who in turn destroyed the very tough Eddie Alvarez. Shields is one of the best in the world at 170, on the ground and overall as a fighter.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    My main concern with Shields would be his punching power. He had full mount a few times and didn't generate much more power from there than Collosus did against Kimbo. I'd like to see him work on that - because with his ability to get dominant position on the ground, if the submission doesn't materialize, it would be nice to be able to finish the fight with GnP instead.

    maybe the punching thing is a theether grathie style, because the Diaz bros are the same way. not so much a power thing but just peppering the opponent
    Like Billy Jacks' soul attack, I'm one Injun you wont forget.
