yea, its been awhile for Carwin. 12 months is along time.

but at least he trains MMA full time and wont be rusty. Its not like he has a real full time job and doesnt concentrate on MMA exclusively like all the guys he will be fighting do......

oh, nvm.

So guys that have not fought for a over a year are ineligible, but guys who have not fought at that weight class for well over a year are?

Henderson has not fought at LHW since Jan/09 and wont be until at least august, if they wanna put him in there against Mousasi.

Vitor has not fought at LHW since Sept/07!!!!! His last relevant fight at that weight class was against Hendo in 06, which he lost. Makes absolutely no sense to have him there. He is also a little high in the MW rankings, but within an acceptable range (4-6).

LW is a little ****ed too, but other than that it is decent.

That's actually a fair point. He should've become ineligible in January.

Actually, this is wrong.

Vitor's fight with Rich was at a catchweight of 195, which the panel is asked to view as a bout in the lightheavyweight division.

Though, again, we did make a mistake, as Belfort hasn't fought at middleweight since last January and should be ineligible in that division.

That division is pretty much impossible to rank without coming out weird. Either it's going to come out too heavy with the UFC guys, or too heavy weigh the non-UFC guys. We get a lot of UFC heavy ballots and a lot of Japanese heavy ballots, which is why that division ends up weird.

EDIT: I just talked to Ivan, who runs the rankings with me, and it turns out that the two of us actually did discuss this (and I just forgot).

We're not handling eligibility on a weightclass-by-weightclass basis, for a number of reasons (particularly pertaining to women's MMA and even male fighters who switch classes periodically). So the eligibility, at least at the moment, is being treated as a binary issue. Either the fighter has fought in the last 12 and is eligible, or he hasn't fought in the last 12 and isn't.

They cam out in mid march before UFC 111, 112, two fight nights and Strikeforce on CBS. Relax they will get some new ones out.
