TBH thats the best LW rankings ive seen, i hate the people who have Alvarez and Kawajiri in there top 5, I think they would get destroyed if they fought top fighters in the US, Just like Aoki did and he only fought a barely top 10 fighter in Melendez.

One question: why on earth is Ben Henderson, the WEC LW Champion, the man who took out Cowboy Cerrone and finished Jamie Varner, at number 19? Crazy to me.

This rating is completely based on results, not emotions.

So let's see results from last 1000 days.
Huerta
Result - Rating - Opponent
Win - 8 - Chad Hinton
Loss - 28 - Gray Maynard
Loss - 28 - Kenny Florian
Win - 21 - Clay Guida
Win - 7 - Alberto Crane

Guida
Result - Rating - Opponent
Win - 10 - Shannon Gugerty
Loss - 28 - Kenny Florian
Loss - 26 - Diego Sanchez
Win - 21 - Nate Diaz
Win - 12 - Mac Danzig
Win - 6 - Samy Schiavo
Loss - 18 - Roger Huerta
Win - 15 - Marcus Aurelio

Huerta had last fight against very week opponent and he was not that active.

ratings for opponents are based on their current ranking and scores.

I don't realy agree with these Rankings.
I think some fighters are placed too high and some are too low.
Examples:
- too high: Miller, Guida, Dunham, Noons
- too low: Benson, Henderson, Josh Thomson, Alvarez (i have him above Griffin any day)

I don't get it: how is Huerta 27?? And Guida 17. And Huerta beat Guida, even though this fight is from 2007. Before he left the UFC he was in the TOP 10 (even top6 in my books, his only losses in the UFC to Florian and a split decision to Maynard). I just don't get that. Guida is entertaining, but he is WAY too high on these rankings imo.

I just think there are just too many UFC fighters in that top. It's a shame no match-ups between most of these fighters are possible at this moment...

OK, let's compare numbers for Guida and Huerta in details.

Rank - CurrScore - AllTime - 2year - RecentScore - Last4Fgt - last Fight

18 - 513.3 - 177.1 - 179 - 71.42 - 84.7 - 31 - Clay Guida
27 - 469.4 - 187.6 - 141 - 57.78 - 81.7 - 27 - Roger Huerta

So, yes Huerta has a better All Time score (187 > 177), but his other scores are not as good as Guida's.
2 year score (last 1000 days) score is Guida 179, Huerta 141.
Last fight for Guida has score of 31 and Huerta 27.

All Time score is what is career rating of a fighter
, but Current Score it heavily time dependent. If somebody is not active enough score will be lover. Also, recent fights worth more.

I think that I would put Alvarez in front of Jim Miller.

ratings for opponents are based on their current ranking and scores.

So basically you are saying I am right that this has everything to do with being in the UFC. By over rating people for just being in the UFC it corrupts the system.

Huerta loses to the number 3 and 4 on this list only and drops below someone he beat fairly recently who has worse losses because he is beating UFC midling fighters and cans who give more points based on being in the ufc only.

Does this list not factor in quality losses? How many points does Noons get for beating Amade who has a 4 loss streak but those are against JZ, Alvarez, Noons, and Kikuno. I don't see how you can rationalize a can like Stout being so much higher than Amade because he only fights other mediocre fighters and still loses to a lot of them.

No, you are not right. If somebody comes to UFC from other Promo, he will have same rating as before.
Same thing with Hendo - he has same score in UFC and Strikeforce (at least before he lost from Shields).
The fact is that if somebody is in UFC, he will most likely face better competition, which brings more points.

Regarding Huerta, I already told you that he is ranked very high on All Time list. But on the Current Ranking (those are two separate scores) he is lower because he didn't fight much lately and his last opponent was very bad.
If he goes into Bellator final and then fights Alvarez, he will jump very high. But that is IF and WHEN!
