Best ever! Knockout machine

How can he be below fighters like Alves, Sherk and Fitch?

ruthless

4 Nick Diaz

Should be hire than Jon Fitch, Diego Sanchez, Sean "the steroid head" Shark, and Anderson Silva is not a Welterweight dumbass

Always brings it when he Fights. Never boring, most entertaining fighter I've ever witnessed. His ability to throw combinations and varying speeds and power with great accuracy is second to none in the MMA welterweight division. Possibly the best we've ever seen.

Anderson is not a welterweight and diaz should be higher on this list.

Overrated and a excuse for every time he loses.

11 B.J. Penn

Sean Sherk's real weakness is the fact that he has to take steroids.

12 John Fitch

He is definitely the best Welterweight.. Excluding GSP.. But he can be better than GSP.. Given the right push and the right time.
