Ask the voters on MMA fighting about that. I for one am wondering why Nick Diaz isn't tenth in the welterweight rankings, because I thought he was. And Chris Leben should be ninth or tenth in the middleweight division. Oh well. It's still pretty cool.

Nog's on here because he's a great fighter and Tito is ranked below him because Tito has an inferior groundnpound.

Leben's not on here because the other guys are better than him and everybody, except for Em, knows that Chris Leben is a bad fighter.

Diaz isn't on here because he's lost 3 of his last 4 fights (the three that were in the UFC) and one of the guys that beat him didn't make this list. :cough: Joe Riggs :cough:

Other than Murilo Bustamante not being on the list, I agree with most of those names. I'd really only switch a few rankings around. I don't think Nick Diaz belongs on the list anymore. And you could probably argue for Leben, but there are a lot of good fighters in the MW division.

Joe Riggs is terrible. The only win he got in the UFC were against Joe Doerkson and Nick Diaz. I don't get how he got a title shot against Matt Hughes when his weight was obviously not right to even fight against Hughes and he never won. I mean he lost to guys like Ivan Salaverry who are unknown to mixed martial arts but he is known.

Would you chose this list over jdun11's list? Lol. This list is pretty accurate and was based on votes. Who is Denis Kang by the way?

Light weight division is so stupid.

Gomi was just submitted in the first round by Marcus(Non title)
Aurelio Mitsuhiro, Ishida Defeated Marcus for 3 rounds at Bushido.Now i know some styles beat other styles but in this case both Marcus and Ishida looked far better than Gomi and it's only a matter of time until that Hype eater is gone.

Umm no Ironman not everyone thinks Chris Leben is a bad fighter on this site anymore,COUGH* 14-2 Pro MMA record 1 loss in the UFC.
Not to say i gave you a link to a Pro fight board about who would win between Luke Cummo and Leben 95.8% of the fighters said Leben would destroy him.Anyway he's fighting fought Anderson Silva.And Luke Cummo is fighting Jonathan Goulet(Scrub knocked out in 11 seconds last fight)not to say CUmmo was DOMINATED.

But hey id rather get knocked out fast by a world class striker that worked with Chute Box than get smacked around by a scrub for 3 rounds anyday of the week.

And just to say Matt Lindlan was knocked out by Dave Terrell in like 20 seconds.(HE SUCKS) You may have good grammar but in a lot of cases your wrong.

Matt Lindland does suck. He is way too over rated in PRIDE and other non-UFC organizations. In the UFC he was fighting in prelim matches except against Pat Miletich who was very old at the time they faught. And Dave Terrell also sucks. He got wasted by Evan Tanner. Lindland is going to get wasted by Rampage at WFA.

lol no he beat Phill Baroni twice,I swear i thought he was the Champion until Busta Choked him out???

Aww well and the fight Dave had with Evan was about 2 years ago and he was stunned,Scared or something because obviously a submission grappler wouldn't have just laid on his back and take a beating, if they had a rematch im sure he would do alot better and even win.By the way he won his last match by submission.
