Some odd calls I find. Barnett out of the top 10, Mirko #6 HW (lolwut), Carwin lower than Cain even though he beat a higher ranked opponent in GG, Rashad higher than Rampage etc...

I don't like this ranking at all.

Carwin is too low, Mirko is too high, Forrest is above Shogun, Rashad is above Rampage, it's a mess.

My God, i hate how much the LW's in Japan are so overated, believe me am a huge fan of japanese MMA but i cant understand in the slightest why JZ, Hansen and Kawajiri would be in the top 10 let alone top 5. Kawajiri maybe has a shout to scrape top 10, but certainly not top 5.

Hansen has only 1 good win in god knows how many years and that was against a very tired Aoki. that just doesnt cut it with me

JZ hasnt won in 2 years, just how can you argue that??????

I love Kawajiri but he only has 1 good win in the last 3 years and that is against JZ who i dont rate at all (although he has great potential).

How you can rank these above the likes of Florian, Sanchez, Edgar and Maynard is just beyond a joke.
