Maynard might be a spot too high, but this list looks great to me.


I really wish Diego Sanchez would have stayed at LW.

Congratulations you won!

Diego has to moved back to WW. This is too much cut for him (lost all the speed and energy).

Maynard is undefeated and has last 7 wins in UFC.
I think that Florian is a better fighter, but that is what algorithm has calculated.
Most of their calculated points are very simmilar and they are very close in their score:

Gray Maynard - Kenny Florian

675.5 - 669.7 - CurrScore
204.9 - 203.2 - All Time Score
244.7 - 245.4 - 2yr Score
7 - 6 - 2y_W
0 - 1 - 2y_L
117.5 - 106.3 - 2y_WL points
102.2 - 111.0 - 2y_Opp points
94.0 - 94.0 - Recent Score
3 - 4 - 1y_F
3 - 3 - 1y_W
120.6 - 124.8 - Last4Fgt points

Current Score = AllTime Score + 2 Year Score + Recent Score
+ Last 4 Fights + Win Streak

Fairly awful and random once you get out of the top 10.

It is not random.
There are a lot of variables used to calculate the final score.
Here are more details on those LW scores:

Current Score - AllTime Score - 2yr Score - Recent Score - Last 4 Fights - Streak Points - Fighter

706.4 - 223.2 - 238.0 - 100.7 - 139.6 - 4.9 - Frankie Edgar
691.7 - 233.3 - 230.3 - 91.5 - 136.6 - 0 - B.J. Penn
675.5 - 204.9 - 244.7 - 94.0 - 120.6 - 11.3 - Gray Maynard
669.7 - 203.2 - 245.4 - 94.0 - 124.8 - 2.3 - Kenny Florian
639.3 - 220.5 - 177.0 - 98.6 - 138.4 - 4.8 - Gilbert Melendez
633.9 - 225.6 - 219.9 - 86.2 - 102.2 - 0 - Shinya Aoki
535.0 - 161.0 - 178.8 - 83.3 - 104.3 - 7.6 - George Sotiropoulos
484.5 - 231.4 - 123.4 - 60.6 - 69.1 - 0 - Takanori Gomi

Gomi and Sotiropoulos are there just as an illustration of how can AllTime Score and Last 4 Fights have opposite effect.

Florian should definitely be ranked ahead of Maynard, and maybe even Melendez should be too after this weekend's performance. Aoki should be lowered even further after his awful fight, and i think Rafael Dos Anjos deserves a little more love in the rankings. Benson Henderson from WEC could arguably deserve a higher ranking, too IMO...

I personally think this is one of the better rankings iv seen. Youl never 100% agree on rankings because there really isnt a method yo go about, you just kinda go on opinion. I definitely think Roger Huerta should be a bit higher... and i havent heared of a few of the people once you get past the top 15, but thats ok.

Explain to me why Guida is so far ahead of JZ, Huerta, Noons and Thomson other than just being in the UFC automatically gives you 10 spots above where you belong.

Id have Tyson Griffin at 5, ahead of melendez and Aoki because I think he'd beat both of them.
