Everybody seems to forget about Matt Lindland these days when talking about MWs. Sure he was inactive for a while, but he never did anything to lose his top 5 spot. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and put him at #2.

How, in the hell, is Matt Lindland number 2?

What has he done in the MW division recently that makes you put him in that spot? Seriously, I want to know.

Also, his fights with Fedor and Rampage have absolutely nothing to do with his ranking at MW.

Damone you can look at this thread two different ways, who is the 2nd best Middleweight fighter in the world? (How they are looking at it) Or, who is ranked the 2nd best MW in the world (How you are looking at it)

EVEN THOUGH, I wouldn't be able to put Matt Lindland at number 2 (either way) since his last fight he looked pathetic, but I know some people definitely felt he was the 2nd best Middleweight in the world before that fight, myself included - Although I wouldn't of ranked him there, because with ranks you have to use a fair system and can't just go by how good they are.

Who would I rank 2nd? Rich Franklin, who do I think is the 2nd best MW in the world? Too tough right now.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I gotta agree about Lindland. If it weren't for his last fight, he might be #2. I don't think you can put Franklin there since he's LHW now. Filho and Lawler are too untested as far as the competition they have been fighting. Henderson makes a much better fighter at LHW, which is where I think he will go next. So that leaves Cote and Okami. Cote sucks, so I have to go with Okami. He's improved, and I think he's the toughest fight for Silva at 185, even though I think Silva will still beat him. Oh and Bisping #2 is just retarded. He's not even in the top 10, even if he does destroy Leben.

I see Franklin as the number 2 in the world and I dont really know who I feel is. Palhares has a lot of freaking potential and I really look forward to his fight against Hendo. Kampmann has always looked good but hasn't been very active.
