1. Matt Brown is beneath the guys he's lost to (Seth, Kim), he's on a good roll but he hasn't really beaten any established guys yet.

2. Erick Silva who I am still high on but he lost to Fitch (who lost to Maia) and he doesn't have that big win yet that puts him on the map.

3. Kym, the big issue I have with Stun Gun is that not that he lost to top talent but he lost to top talent in devastating fashion. I believe he has an Okami style run in him but I'm betting on Siyar.

Now why is Siyar high in my rankings, partly like Maia and TJ Grant since dropping down in weight he hasn't just won he's dominated. Also I respect Paulo Thiago tremendously and while I don't think of him as a top ranked fighter finishing him gets a lot of points in my eyes.

Woddley has defeated Saffedine.. as well as Heiron and Daley..
Woodly decisioned Saffedine, Marquardt knocked Woodley out, while Saffedine wrecked Marquardt. They aren't that far apart in the rankings as Tarec/Nate/Woodley could all rise together. Also Saffedine is on the better roll.
