First impression: Why isn't sean sherk the #1 lightweight? Second thought: Oh yeah, he fights in the 170's now.

No suprises for my, except that I think Rampage should have made the top 5 in lightheavyweights.

If anderson silva is really the #5 middleweight in the world then he'd better kick the crap out of chris leben.

I was surprised that the middleweight are dominated by the UFC. Does pride not have a welterweight divison.

ummm Sean sherk is dropping down so he would be top #3 probably, not really sure about like pride fighters though for LW's.
Is phil baroni really that good?????

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

If Sherk fights as a lightweight he'd be number 1, but UFC doesn't have a lightweight division and so he has to compete as a welterweight.

Phil Baroni deserves to be exactly where he is.

I just realized that the Snowman is number 10 on the heavyweight list!!! He deserves it, I don't know how it happened, but good for him.

Probably for the reason that he hasn't faced anyone in the top 3 yet. Brandon has a very promising future, but until he actually tangles with either Mir, Buentello, Arlovski or Silvia, he's not going to break into that elite group just yet.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Anyone else think Brandon Vera belongs on the heavyweight list?

I am with double...he should be close. He has the best all around skills in that class in the UFC. But I think he wants to go down to lightheavyweight.

Never take counsel of your fears.
