Pierce hasn't really beaten any other contenders, so asking for the number 2, or 3 in Ellenberger, who should be in line after Hendricks, would be too little reward for too much risk for Elly. Elly wins, he's still next in line. He loses, he loses his spot. I like Pierce and I think he's in line, but not high enough for Ellenberger. Lawler makes more sense because he's a potential contender and he's got good name value. Pierce could use some name value if he's looking to be a contender. Hell, since a name and a fight with someone better established in the division than Rocha, Simpson and Baczynski, is all that he needs for a title run, I say give him a rematch with Kos. Kos would make it to where Ellenberger could remain a contender and Lawler can continue towards contendership without knocking Pierce down a peg or losing their spot.

I'd like to see Pierce fight Stun Gun but I think he needs to fight a top ten guy right now, and sadly Stun Gun is not top 10. Ellenberger doesn't make sense because he's ranked so high. Pierce gives a lot of the top 10 guys issues

Pierce is a game fighter. In the UFC, he's only lost to big name fighters, and he gave them all a lot of issues. Split decision losses to Josh Koscheck and current number one contender Johny Hendricks, and a 29-28 unanimous decision loss to Jon Fitch back when he was number 2 in the division.

Mike keeps coming close to getting his big name win, but comes up short. Still potentially a top 10 fighter and he could potentially beat a lot of guys in the top 10 right now. Some people scored his fight against Hendricks for him after all. He doesn't exactly deserve a fight with Ellenberger at the moment, but Lawler would be a good name for him to fight. Very winnable fight as well.

I don't understand why people view Ellenberger so much higher than Pierce? Yea, he may be higher...a couple of spots.

Am I missing something, or did I not drink the kool-aid? He has went....KO loss to Kampmann. 29-28 win vs Jay Hieron. Then KO'd a fading Nate Marquadt who is in no ones top 10 now. He was barley ranked somehow because he beat Tyrone Woodley in strikeforce...Marqaurdt sucks these days. He is a gate keeper to a gate keeper like Kos at the very best.

Pierce has fought right with Hendricks and Kos, basically to Draws.

In my own personal view I have: (UFC only)

1. GSP
2. Hendricks
3. Condit
4. Rory
5. Maia
6. Ellenberger
7. Diaz
8. Saff
9. Pierce
10. Pyle/Kampmann

I don't care for the fight. But I don't feel they are ranked that far apart.

Give Pierce Saff so he can expose him
