The Lightweight Division is a mess...

I've been looking at recent results and realised there is NO WAY the UFC can put the guys in the 5-25 rankings in any sort of order.

You got Ross Fisher who beat Spencer Fisher and Dennis Siver comfortably, but got dominated by Cole Miller. Cole Miller has that win but lost convincingly to Matt Wiman. Wiman has a win over Danzig too however lost a clear decision to Sam Stout.
Stout has that win another good win over Joe Lauzon, however lost to Jeremy Stephens. Stephens also beat Cole Miller but lost to both Spencer Fisher and Joe Lauzon. its so damn confusing!

For the love of God can someone just go on a run like Jim Miller has so we can get some sort of idea where everyone stands!!

With Soti's loss Miller is clearly the next in line after the rematch (assuming he wins his next fight). If Pettis can get past Guida, I think he'd be the next in line after that simply because of his WEC belt.

I agree with you. Since Sotiropolous lost there is no one (other than Jim Miller) on a good win streak and with hype behind them. Even Jim Miller isn't really an exciting prospect as he has lost to the current champ and number 1 contender. It is sad that we are losing Florian to 155.

If Frankie loses his title to Grey (which I really hope he doesn't) then I would like to see BJ move back down and fight grey for the title.

BJ is by far the most exciting fighter at LW, bar absolutly none.

The LW division is very competitive both at the top of the food chain and in the depth guys.

Right now the top guys would have to be Edgar and Maynard followed by Miller, Guillard, Siver. Pearson is a good up and comer, his loss to Cole Miller was just a set back imo and I still believe he is shoulders above Miller.

Good but no Jeremy Stephens! Also Edson Barboza will be in there near the top very soon!!

One loss and Soti isn't even up there now? :P
He's still 14-3 with his only other losses coming to Kyle Noke (who fights at 185) and Shinya Aoki via DQ.
Siver may have put his name in the hat with his win over George, but I really don't think he'll ever be in the mix for a title. George on the other hand I think can regroup from this loss, only his first so far in the UFC, put together a few more solid wins and be right back in the title picture.

I don't think Stephens is in the top 25, had he lost to Davis (which he was) he may have been cut. If he was in the top 25 he wouldn't be fighting Brookins.

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).

How's that?
Not bad but where is Florian? Or did he say he is moving to 145 for sure?
