Just because someone is the number one contender doesnt make necassirly make them the second best fighter in the class. Why is Shogun ranked second in Prides rankings? We know he wont fight Wanderlei.
Also, Forrest being ranked ahead of Babalu is whack. I think overall these rankings are pretty shitty.
