Those rankings are bullshit. I just don't understand why anyone takes these things so seriouslly. I mean, what qualifications do the guy's who run that site have to make these rankings? What system do they use for them? It really looks like their opions and fan favorites only.


Sean Sherk is the LW Champion of arguably the most prestigous MMA organization in the world so he should automatically be #1 or at the least number two if your going to argue about Pride. But being that Gomi just lost Sherk is by default #1 and yet he is not even listed in the top 10. Thats just shows what a joke these "rankings" really are. Diaz just beat Gomi and he is ranked two spots lower than him. LOL!


They also list BJ Penn at #3 WW despite the fact that he has lost his last two fights. More bullshit.


The HW rankings are the worst. Josh Barnett lost 2 of his last 3 fights and Nogueira lost 1 of his last 2 and yet they are ranked higher than the UFC HW Champion Tim Sylvia who has won his last 6 fights and hasn't lost in over two years. Thats a very clear bias towards Pride right there. Tim Sylvia is the UFC HW Champion and at the very least should be #2.


Its clear that the so called "experts" who run this crap are just Pride nuthuggers.

How is it that they don't have Sherk even listed??? The guy has NEVER LOST AT THAT WEIGHT!!! His only losses are to the #1 and #2 fighter in the weight above him. That is just Bu****it. I can't see any reason to have him not listed at all. I know that a bunch of you will say that he's mostly fought no names. But to be 31-0-1 to lesser fighters is HUGE.

Get him a fight with some quality Dana so he can get the #1 spot soon!!!

There not just Pride nuthuggers. If anything, they favour the UFC.

Just because someone loses two fights in a row doesn't mean that they shouldn't be ranked high. Barnett lost two fights in a row, but to who? CRO COP and NOG! Two guys ranked above him. B.J lost two fights in a row, but to who? GSP and HUGHES! Two guys ranked above him. You see what I'm saying.

I think the reason why Gomi is still ranked higher then Diaz is because Nick Diaz has come off some disappointing losses recently, and because Gomi's been going solid. I still think it should go Sakurai, Melendez, Sherk, Diaz and then Gomi. The only reason why I have Sherk there is because he beat Diaz recently. Sherk is good, but he needs more wins over top ten'ers. Who did Sherk beat to win the belt? Kenny Florian? Although I do believe his win over Diaz is more significent now, it doesn't mean that just because your a champion, mean that by default you are the #1.

I always thought you were smart, but it seems that you must not know much about Pride.

To even imply that Tim Sylvia should be ranked ahead of Cro Cop is just crazy. Even I, a Tim supporter, don't do that. You got to be kidding yourself.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Ranking are not based on who you feel is good or who will win what fight or who your favorite is. They are based on wins and loses. If you win you go up and if you lose you go down. Apparently the guy's who put this list together don't understand that concept.


Championship belts are meassuring sticks to see who the best is. The guy who holds the belt is the best in the divison of the organization he is the champion of. Thats the whole purpose of title belts. It is why everyone wants to fight for the title and wants to be a champion. So with that in mind, the champions of each respective division in the UFC should be no lower than #2 (or #1 if you want to argue about Pride) seeing that it is arguably the biggest and most prestigous MMA organization in the world (again its debatable with Pride). Its really simple logic.
