    Missed the prelims but heard they were sick. The results back it up.

    • Yeah.. Cowboy beat a tough Siver and he’ll over dominate a weak ass Nate.

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        Clueless comment. Siver is fucking so overratted its silly, Matt Wiman smashed the shit out of him and lost a bull shit decision. Diaz on the other hand is class, this should be a great fight. Cerrone has so much potential and is so explosive, I’m going with him just but Diaz is definitely not weak ass.

        • HEY STUPID FUKK BUTTJUTSU.. Clueless huh? Where’s Nate Diaz on this list my eyes might be bad?

        • Tyler Kartler says:

          He’s not on there because he just jumped back in the division… BJ’s not on there either and he realistically is.. Eddie Alverez shouldn’t be on there.. and you’re just an internet talker.. get your top 10 lists out of here

        • momo says:

          where is cerrone guess that puts them in the same boat hmmm. nate beat gray and melvin he has never been blown out in LW and being held down is not being blown out so dont even try to pull that sh&t. you really need to learn to calm the f&ck down getting butt hurt cuse he said you were clueless is just sad.

        • Jujutsu Player says:

          Haha you fucking muppet he’s only coming back into the 155lb division so yes you are fucking clueless. Nate Diaz is not by any means weak ass. You basically show me you know dick about MMA. He took Maynard to a split decision and was unlucky. He’s just not big enough for the guys at WW.

        • Hey stupid fukks.. Cockjutsu was talking Siver being overrated like is momma is.. Good head tho! Comparing SIVER TO LIL DIK DIAZ.. at least Siver is on the list. Guess what Cerrone kicked Sivers ass so pretty much means the list needs updating and just put Cowboy at # 9.. Yo momma’s is Ho bitchess! Lmao.. It elemantary my dear faggitz, now go back to shoving cow crap!

          Hey momo.. Speaking of your mom I still owe her $5 , she knows how to get in touch w me.. actually I know her street corner I’ll stop by and see her. : )

        • Maybe Nate Diaz is on this list? No don’t see him on here…

          1: Georges St Pierre (UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION)
          2: Jon Fitch
          3: Nick Diaz
          4: Jake Ellenberger
          5: BJ Penn
          6: Jake Shields

          8: Rick Story
          9: Josh Koscheck
          10: Thiago Alves

        • Cockjutsu.. How did Nate do against Macdonald and Kim.. got his WEAK ASS dominated.. Hello FOOL!

        • Jujutsu Player says:

          Like I said you thick fuck, he’s not big enough for the WW division but hardly got dominated by those fools, matter of fact I bet you haven’t even seen these fights or Diaz fight, you get all your intel from websites like sherdog, look at you with lists, top 25 fighters, you fucking geegy retard, have you ever even seen a UFC fight? Probably not becasue your one clueless fool. Diaz would destroy your boyfriend Siver in the same way Siver destroys your ring piece when he enters you. Diaz is a top LW fighter FACT. This will be a great fight because both are top fighters.

        • Hey Tyler.. maybe nate is on the top 25?
