In an entertaining video from Fuel TV, top UFC fighters weigh in on who they think can end a fight the best. Of course the obligatory names of Anderson Silva and Jon Jones are near the top, but there is a surprise or two as well.

Jose Aldo is also named, so let's hope he can starting finishing UFC opponents with frequency in 2013. Is there anyone besides Anderson Silva that could be labeled the UFC's top finisher? Let me know your vote.

    It's funny. I would have said Johnny Hendricks... They interviewed him, but he didn't make the list.

    GSP is the most best fighter in the history of the sport when it comes to dominating in every area. There has never been someone who can pick you apart on the feet and then take down world class wrestlers like he is doing a demonstration with his opponent volunteering and beating top fighter one after another.

    GSP is renowned for all those things I just stated but it is other fighters like Aldo and JDS who are renowned for stopping their opponents in spectacular fashion.

    Why couldn't Kareem score free throws? Why couldn't Gretzky body check?
    You're like the guy who saw Nolan Ryan pitch a two hitter and wonders why he threw so many pitches outside?
    I'm committed to answering your shallow, ridiculous, one dimensional complaints about GSP in as many different ways as possible.

    @Underdog pretty much nailed who is in the list but not in the right order IMO.
    Aldo is a killer but I feel that his finishes, while great, have all come against lesser competition (except Mendes) while Jones and JDS have been dropping former UFC champs and top 10 fighters like a bad habit.

    @onemoreround you admit GSP is ranked #3 P4P so why don't you have him in top 5?
    Just because they are a top P4P fighter doesn;t mean they are the greatest finishers (GSP, Edgar, Cruz)

    I'm with you, EH, Carwin does not deserve to be on this list.

    Vitor Belfort would be on my top 7 list because he possesses what we all called 'killer instinct'.

    Is there not a single thread on lowkick where you wont turn it into the same relentless absurdity about GSP onemoreround? When was the last time Silva faced someone taller than himself and of the same calibre as Condit? Oh thats right... NEVER.

    From Brazil the best finishers are, Anderson silva (king) ….. Then there is Shogun Rua , Jose Aldo, Wanderlei & Dos Santos.
    From Mexico its Valasquez
    From US, Bones & Joe lauzon are great. Frank Mir, Rich Franklin, Brian Stann, Tiago Alves, Chuck Liddell, Matt Brown, Dan Hendo. Rampage.
    From Japan Takanori Gomi
    From Vietnam originally: Cung Lee

    All these guys have great finishes whether it be sub or KO. too many other guys I have missed.

    Fedor finished 27 fights which is pretty good going. I think Silva is probably the best given the variety of finishes he has performed and his timing is second to none for striking, but there are so many fighters who are great finishers but not necessarily great fighters.
