ADCC Overall Rankings

I kid you not, this is straight off of the Abu Dhabi Combat Club web site. They released these rankings and they are currently on the homepage.

Does this make sense to anybody?

Usually, when I look at a rankings chart there is some rhyme or reason, but here I see none.

Despite my personal issue with Barnett not being on this list when he could kick the crap out of eight of these fighters (all except CroCop and Fedor), I just don't get it.

You have 3 PRIDE grand prix fighters from the final four, but only 1 of the finalists. The other finalist (Barnett) is missing.

You have 3 heavyweights, 2 lightheavyweights, 2 middleweights, 2 welterweights and a lightweight.

You only have three major organization title holders. None of them are in first and only 1 of them is in the top three.

You have a fighter who has not been beaten in recent memory and is widely considered the best fighter in the world ranked at #4 when he has beaten fighters in the #1 and #2 spots.

That's my rant for the day.

this list is all messed up man. Fedor at 4? how can anyone justify that. especially with nog and mirko in front of him. that doesn't really make sense. i dont really like where hughes is. although i'm a huge fan, wandy being so high makes zero sense. royce on the list?

it all seems messed up to me. and i do agree with you about barnett. he deserves a spot if they're putting some of these guys on there.

Thats a ****ed up list. I consider Barnett to be the 4th best fighter in the world. Like half the guys shouldn't even be in the top 15.
