I wanna hear you opinions on who are the current 'GATEKEEPERS' in each division. For those who dont know a gatekeeper is someone that if you beat him your considered as one of the top 10 fighters in division.

Here are my opinions


Clay Guida


Not sure about this one but i would say Josh Koscheck


Nate Quarry or Chris Leben

Light Heavyweight

ehmm i would say believe it or not, MICHAEL BISPING


Gonzaga ???

Bisping isn't a LHW.

Clay Guida, I think he's a little above gatekeeper status he's a very tough fight. I think Spenser Fisher is a guy who has been around a while but hasn't been able to bust into the top 5,

Kos had a title shot and has been around top 5 for a while so I would go with more of a Karo Parrisyan

Bisping hasn't entered this yet, he hasn't had enough loses yet, Leben would be a better pick.

I think Stephan Bonnar is 1 at LHW

Hardonk at HW is also 1, Gonzaga is not a gatekeeper he still has the talent to beat anybody if he can put it all together.
