Top 10 MMA featherweights: March 2014

Quote:
Please note that Dennis Siver was suspended on March 15th due to a positive substance test and as a result is ineligible for the rankings. Also note that the rankings are voted on by a panel of MMA Freak writers. Lastly the previous rankings (2/21/14) are in listed parenthesis:

~ 1 (1) ~

Jose Aldo

With the super fight against Anthony Pettis scrapped, Jose Aldo currently has nothing scheduled. The most logical opponent would be former title challenger and current UFC number one contender Chad Mendes in a title rematch. He has certainly earned it in my opinion.

~ 2 (2) ~

Chad Mendes

Chad Mendes currently has nothing scheduled. One can only assume that he’ll get the title rematch with Jose Aldo as the next logical step. If that is not the case then he should at least get a title contenders match where the winner would get the next crack at champion Aldo.

~ 3 (3) ~

Ricardo Lamas

Following his title loss to Jose Aldo, Ricardo Lamas can only expect a rebound match. More then likely it’ll be against a top 10 or 15 guy.

~ 4 (4) ~

Cub Swanson

Cub Swanson is currently expected to face Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 43 on June 28th. A win could earn him a possible title shot.

~ 5 (8) ~

Frankie Edgar

The plans for Frankie Edgar’s trilogy match with BJ Penn is still on track following their upcoming coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter.

~ 6 (7) ~

Clay Guida

Clay Guida is currently on track for his match with Tatsuya Kawajiri at UFC Fight Night 39 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on April 11th.

~ 7 (tied) (5) ~

Chan Sung Jung

The “Korean Zombie” has been out of action since his UFC 163 loss to Jose Aldo for the title. A rebound match has long been overdue.

~ 7 (tied) (N/A) ~

Nik Lentz

Nik Lentz is expected to face Manny Gamburyan at UFC Fight Night 40 on May 10, 2014 at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

~ 9 (N/A) ~

Dustin Poirier

Rising prospect Dustin Poirier’s next match is expected to be against Akira Corassani at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale on April 16th.

~ 10 (10) ~

Pat Curran

There were many who believed that Pat Curran did not earn the right for an immediate rematch and as a result his trilogy with Daniel Straus at Bellator 112 was met with some criticism. However, despite the controversy he rose to the occasion and reclaimed his championship.

~ Contenders ~

The following fighters received votes for the featherweight rankings this month and are listed as contenders: Jeremy Stephens, Daniel Straus.

Lamas's fight against Aldo was so underwhelming, Swanson should be above him no doubt.

Why don't you just say...."are listed in brackets"??? Sounds way better and not so randomly pulled out of a thesaurus.

They are different on this side of the Ocean I guess.

Thanks for backing me up hit. Also CupCake that's how it was ranked by all of us. Lastly GDP did you not see the part where I said Siver is on suspension under the NSAC for a banned substance?

I'm sure GDP did, he was just giving you HIS Top 10 I'm sure.

I know that is how it's ranked by your guys, I'm giving you an opinion...it's a forum it's what we do.

1. Jose Aldo
2. Frankie Edgar
3. Chad Mendes
4. Pat Curran
5. Ricardo Lamas
6. Patricio Freire
7. Cub Swanson
8. Dustin Poirer
9. Daniel Straus
10. Jeremy Stephens

Aldo is #1 no question.

Curran with his split with Straus drops him to #4

Edgar and Mendes are very close in my eyes, I'm not sure whom is going to be UFC champ when Aldo moves up but I'll give the nod to Edgar over Mendes out of respect and logistics. (Mendes is likely facing Aldo and he won't be winning that fight)

Lamas is at five, he beat Swanson just fought for the title and don't see much of a reason to drop up out of the top five.

Pitbull is at #6 between Straus and Curran and I don't see much in the UFC to push him out of the rankings.

Cub Swanson is at #7 I think loses to Aldo, Mendes, and Lamas and close victories over Siver and Poirer keeps me from having him top five like most others have him at.

Poirer is at #8 because he's solid and active.

Daniel Straus is at #9 it's a bit unfair but I don't think he gets another title shot for a year.

Stephens is at #10 because I believe he can defeat Cub and if that occurs he could be fighting Frankie for a vacated belt in 2015.
