Wow, I never thought I would see the TUF figher kid Forrest Griffin, in the top 10 LHW in the world.

Does this place him at #1? Because Shogun was placed as #1
and basically everyone here on this forum supported Shogun being #1.

I think he should be up there, but we'll see what these people rank him at.

I'm not that surprised to see him in the top 10 (he certainly belongs in the top 10 now). #1? No way. The LHW division rankings are in a bit of turmoil right now, but the obvious #1 is Quinton Jackson.

Forrest shouldn't be No.1 just let but does deserve to be in the Top 10. Hell, I wouldn't be dissapointed if he was placed in the top 5. Rampage def. deserves to be No.1 right now.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Ya have a good argument there....this has really shaken things in the LHW division. Ya have to put Forrest in there now...I mean he beat arguably the #1 guy in the division.

same argument could be made for Jardine....do ya put him in there now? I'd like to see who they have in the top 10 to be honest.

I'm not surprised he's top 10, but quite surprised that he's improved this fast. He's always learned and progressed after every fight so I figured he'd be up there in maybe another year or two, but I didn't think he'd make his breakthrough this fast.
