I think they look pretty good. Rashad should be in there instead of Lambert since he beat him. I dont know why after getting upset Rogerio gets to remain at six and Babalu gets bumped out. I'd probably switch the MW's around a little. But overall these rankings are pretty reasonable.

O shit I didnt even notice Sherks absence. I dont see why they would elave him out. He should at least be in the top 3.

I really don't understand why BJ Penn is still listed as #3 in the WW division. Yes BJ Penn in the past has great wins over some top level people and he still has a lot of skill but he came back and earned himself two loses. Yes he faught well in those fights and he almost won both but he lost. If we are going to reward fighters with high rankings for past exploits you mine as well put Dan Severn's name near the top of the HW ranks and Royce Gracie in the top 10 for WW's.

"You can light a fire for a man and he will be warm for a day."
OR
"You can light a man on fire and he'll be warm for a lifetime."

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

The only people he's lost to are the two people he's behind. How doesnt that make sense? The fight he had with the current champ was about as close of a split decision could get and he was literally dominating Hughes until he got hurt. What has anyone else done to deserve being ahead of him?

It makes no sense to put him at #3 when his WW record in the UFC is 1-2. Just because he is a fan favorite or people think he is skilled does not negate the fact that he has not won a fight since coming back to the UFC. Once again this shows how those rankings have no credability.

Last week they didn't even list Sherk and now he has magically been bumped up to #3.


I'm telling you, the guy's who put this together wouldn't know the difference between their ass and a hole in the ground.
