Why wouldn't Diaz be ahead of Rory? He was basically the 2nd ranked WW before he fought Condit who was also highly ranked at the time. He lost on the cards in a close fight that half the public thought he won.
What has Rory done? Beat down BJ Penn? Diaz already did that and he doesn't have freak strength like Rory did over the glorified LW.
Because penn is the highest ranked we Diaz has ever beaten by far same can be said for Rory but he didn't lose his last fight.
