UFC: Who Owns the title of Ultimate Fighter?

Ron JohnsonSenior Writer IMay 25, 2008

Last night, I opened Pandora's Box by calling out some foul play in the Main Event of UFC 84: Ill Will. There are those who believe that B.J. Penn is one of the greatest fighters in UFC. There are those who believe that Penn is the greatest fighter in the world.

With that being said, I compiled a list of fighters who could hold the title of The Ultimate Fighter.

And unlike the cheerleader who spewed the column with her anti-Kobe list of the greatest basketball players of all time, there is no order. I want everyone's opinion. Out of this list (and whoever is missing from it), who is The Ultimate Fighter in UFC?

You decide. Here are the usual suspects.

The Toughest and The Best

BJ Penn

Kenny Florian

Diego Sanchez

Josh Koscheck

Chris Leben

Rich Franklin

Chuck "Iceman" Liddell

Randy "The Natural" Couture

Rashad Evans

Evan Tanner

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson

Forrest Griffin

Tito Ortiz

Royce Gracie

Joe Lauzon

Anderson Silva

Wanderlei Silva

Matt Serra

Jens Pulver

Karo Parisyan

Frank Mir

Roger Huerta

Matt Hughes

Jeremy Horn

Chris Lytle

Patrick Cote

Michael Bisping

Sean Sherk

Travis Lutter

Nate Quarry

Thiago Silva

Mike "Quick" Swick

Thiago Tavares

Jon Fitch

Thiago Alves

Mauricio Rua

Gleison Tibau

Heath Herring

Dan Henderson

Tyson Griffin

Keith Jardine

Georges St-Pierre

Dan Severn

Ken Shamrock

Stephan Bonnar

Josh Burkman

Here's the rundown. There is no particular order, and I want to know once and for all who is the best in the UFC. Place your votes, and we'll unleash the Top 25 (yes, just like college rankings) at UFC 85: Bedlam on June 7th. Start voting, and we'll put the question to bed.
