Ariel Helwani is an idiot and deserves to be fired from the UFC.

So, I'm watching the UFC post fight show and I see this little gem.



Now this may not be a big deal to some but Bader beats Rampage yet Rampage is 5 and Bader is 8?! In what ******* universe does that make sense? I hope to God those really are Unofficial because if not we've got big ******* problems.

Well, seeing as it says "unofficial rankings by Ariel Halwani" I'm not quite sure what you're complaining about.

It's got nothing to do with ranking, he's either an idiot or he doesn't even watch the UFC.

Wow. Forrest Griffin is still considered a top 10 fighter. That just made me realize how thin the LHW division is.

Heh, Well its kind of a toss up considering bader lost to jones and tito ortiz while even though bader did beat rampage, rampage beat machida. Not that big of a deal IMO

Machida should be #2, this is bullshit but it doesnt matter its just Ariels opinion.

If you look at their wins as a whole, you can easily put Rampage over Bader.

But, I guess you want to go with the notion that you're only as good as your last fight?

Also, re-size your damn picture or put it in a spoiler. Shits annoying.

OMG everyone, lets all rage about someones OPINION of a stupid ranking system. Who cares who the #5 fighter is, or the #10 fighter is, the only thing that matters is who the champ and contender are, NOTHING ELSE. Can't believe people really find all this stuff to complain about, these are little petty things and yet some of you are in outrage about this.

Hilarious.

Its like power rankings for all other sports, who gives a damn who the #20th team is, all that matters is who is on the TOP.
