It must be so awesome to live in your world and create your own facts.
MMA-weekly has santiago at #9 and sherdog says #8 AFTER HIS LOSS TO STANN.
But what do they know compared to the man who said Machida would rule the LHWs and Daley would KO Diaz with a jab.
If you didn't see the skill and intelligence at play in the Stann/Leben Stann/Santiago fights and the lack of both in Wandy/Leben (from wandy) you can only be called a CASUAL.
One thing is true. With Stann as gatekeeper you will never see Wandy pass through. He's afraid to even try.
Now go on and lose your last drop of credibility with me by insulting MMA weekly
Well first of all MMA is all about matchups!
Secondly, Rankings don't mean s.hit (I got that from Tito
Santiago is and was ranked so high because he had multiple wins back in Japan and was a Champion. However, the organization he has fought in, isn't as relevant.
Santiago is a good fighter, but he is not a contender and never was. Just like Stann, Leben, Akiyama and many more..
I think Stann is even ahead of Demian Maia and Munoz too on many sides right? There you can see the holes in all these terrible ranking systems. They don't mean shit !!
I understand that the MW division is weak right now and Stann deserves to get a top guy now. Believe me, the first time he meets a great Wrestler or Striker.. he goes down.
You can't just cut weight and be an instant contender in the UFC.. it takes time and Stann is far from it.
