It's a mess, but outside of maybe the born again Guillard, I don't see Maynard winning the rematch or anyone being able to compete with Frankie (except Aldo).

Still 4 solid contenders Guillard, Siver, Guida and Miller. (I think Pettis is overrated).

A prospect like Barboza is interesting once he gets a national fight a people see his skills he'll make an impact on the rankings (like Oliveira who is close to the top ten).
No way Stephens was getting cut. He is a FOTN/KOTN award machine! He is very inconsistent but wins over Stout, Dos Anjos and Cole Miller are pretty big for him. I'd put him above Shane Roller simply cos he has had far more high profile wins - Roller has only faced 2 guys in your top 25 and been beaten soundly both times.

I just realized how badly I want to see Siver vs. Guillard.

Siver just lost a round and a half striking to Sotiropoulos and has already been destroyed by Melvin.

Please. That was so 2008.

Ha-ha, I wasn't even aware of that fight. I'll have to go and watch it.

I'm confused how Ross Pearson managed to completely tool Siver and then get outstruck by the BJJ guy Cole Miller... It makes no sense.

Cole used his reach well and kept hurting Pearson before he could get inside. Siver is a powerful striker but he is kind of wild especially with his hands so any technical boxer is going to give him problems during a fight.

When you write it all down like that... it looks fabulous! Ok, it makes trying to formulate rankings a bit crazy... but who cares. I would rather this craziness then a predictable division.

I would love to see Siver vs Sherk/Miller and Guida vs Guillard.

The fight vs Guillard was a bit unlucky for him, he got caught right away. I dont say Guillard would loose to Siver, but it would be much closer than this.
