Well some lists still have Penn ranked as a top 10 WW so I think he wins that contest by far.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

So now we're demanding that people be fired for their opinions, huh? While I admit that I don't agree with his rankings, firing him, as you suggest, is irrational and ridiculous. Considering all of us come on here to express our opinions, how can you demand someone be fired for expressing theirs? OP, especially you, someone who is constantly ridiculed for your opinion, I don't see where you're coming from.

Calm down, and try to be a bit more rational with your thinking. After all, you wouldn't want to be fired from this forum, would you?

It's just an opinion and it clearly says unofficial rankings by ariel helwani.

Rankings are a bitch, Page has a lot better record in recent LHW scene than Bader, yet he lost to him. Henderson is in the top 3 with having 1 fight in recent years in the weight division so it's debatable yet you could easily throw him in the P4P top 10 discussion.

It's his opinion, plus I don't see Bader beating a healthy rampage. My unofficial ranking is like this:

1. Jones
2. Evans
3. Machida...still think he is the most talented fighter not named jones
4.Henderson...still can't get over that he lost to rampage
5.Shogun... is 4-4 in the ufc and i think he has only has 2 fights in the ufc where he has been healthy/prepare/in shape.
6.Rampage...Toss up when healthy shogun,henderson,machida,evans all can beat each other
7. Phil
8. Gus
9.Bader
10. Lil Nog
