There truly is no need or purpose for a p4p list though. Its clear that Anderson is #1, but the rest of the list is too arguable to be set in stone.
Is that some kind of twisted joke?

So Chael Sonnen isn't top 10 in either weight class?

I noticed the omission, but how and where would they rank him? He's no longer a MW, and he's yet to fight at LHW. Makes it difficult to place him in either category. The world knows he was the #2 MW, but again... he's no longer fighting there.

No disrespect to Sonnen and his fans, but ranking wise he is to the LHW division what Kimbo Slice would be to the HW division. He'd be top 50

His loses in the division are staggering I believe his record was 13-8 with those eight loses being to

Trevor Prangley
Terry Martin
Jeremy Horn
Jeremy Horn
Jeremy Horn
Forrest Griffin
Keiichiro Yamamiya
Renato Sobral

With his only wins Trevor Prangley, Jason Lambert, and Alex Stiebling. I'm sure he's improved and he'll likely draw some favorable 205 fights after Jones runs through him.

So what happens to these rankings say when Bisping fights Belcher? Say Belcher wins, does he then become the 3rd best and Bisping become the 9th? Or is it just a more simple Bisping drops down, Belcher moves up?

I really have no big issues with these, seem just about spot on - few issues but its just minor personal preference....nothing i would bitch about.

No big mistakes yet - it will be interesting to see how these move around once we get a few events in the book.

Let's just wait and see

Quite a good first attempt for official rankings. I would move a couple if people around here and there but that's just my opinion.

They're no where near the worst I've seen. They're not bad at all. Few things others have already pointed out but nothing drastic.
