The Official UFC Ranks

The Official UFC Ranks
http://www.ufc.com/rankings

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC and a fighter can only appear in one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

Meh. Subject to debate, I'm sure.

Having a P4P list is kind of silly. Too hypothetical, argumentative, and debatable to have a defined 'list'.

Didn't think they were too bad. Seem to have gotten to important ones right. Though not sure about Frankie being that low.

I think most of the right names are there. But I'd argue some of the placements. Nothing overly appalling however.

The lists are okay for certain weight classes, but some are off

Outside of Carwin, those really aren't that bad.

Worth a debate and discussion

4 Antonio Silva
5 Frank Mir
6 Alistair Overeem
7 Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
8 Roy Nelson
9 Stefan Struve
10 Shane Carwin
Id have Mir at #4, Carwin as inactive with Hunt at #10.

Little Nog shouldn't be top five, I wouldn't even rank him above Rashad after that fight. I would go Henderson/Gustaf/Machida/Tex/Davis/Evans/Bader/Nog/Mousassi.

Quote:
Anderson Silva

1 Chris Weidman
2 Vitor Belfort
3 Michael Bisping
4 Yushin Okami
5 Mark Munoz
6 Constantinos Philippou
7 Luke Rockhold
8 Hector Lombard
9 Alan Belcher
10 Tim Boetsch
It should go #1. Weidman, #2 Belfort #3 Rockhold 4# Lombard 5# Jacare and then Bisping/Okami/Munoz etc

1 Johny Hendricks

10 Tarec Saffiedine
Koscheck loses to GSP and a close split decision to Hendricks he should be ahead of Ellenberger and Kampmann.

Quote:
Benson Henderson

1 Gilbert Melendez
2 Anthony Pettis
3 Gray Maynard
4 Nate Diaz
5 Jim Miller
6 Donald Cerrone
7 TJ Grant
8 Rafael dos Anjos
9 Joe Lauzon
10 Khabib Nurmagomedov
I'd have Lauzon and Khabib at #6 and #7

The list with the worst order is #205 the list with the worst omission in #185 as you could make a very good case for Jacare in the top five.

It's legit enough imo. I'd switch a few people around though. I don't see how edgar isn't #1 after a performance like that. But its not too shabby.

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.

This is what I was thinking. Not that exciting. Run of the mill list really.

Don't see how anyone can even consider Carwin relevant at this stage. The man is done. I guess they didn't consider Barnett part of the UFC.
