The only reason why Sherk is not there is because hes suspended.. else he would be #2 or #1 in the world, assuming whatever he takes is not the cause of his success.
There is a lot of fighters that are good at LW outside of the UFC, so when they fight each other, they got higher into rankings.
I dont think UFC LW are that much worse than other LWs in the world, i just think talents are fighting each other more often outside of the UFC.
But in general, LWs outside of the UFC are better. The population in general in Asia are lighter than the Americans, so in proportion, they have more LW fighters than any other higher weight classes, so they are bound to have more talented fighters.
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
