Could Jamahal Hill make the list 2021/2022? I think he might.

Should Anthony Smith be ranked in the top 10 after being taken down by a guy with only 1 working leg in his last fight?

I like and respect Anthony Smith but it seems like he'll be dominated by every wrestler at 205 unless something changes.

Remember that the reason why Jimmy Crute was on one leg in the first place is because Anthony Smith kicked him and took that leg out. Now Jamahal Hill may indeed make the rankings sometime in this year. Now if you disagree with the rankings then as I've done before I can open up the rankings to be voted on here again.

If a boxer would be ashamed to lose to a guy with one arm

Should a wrestler be ashamed to be taken down by a guy with one leg?

I'm not interested in voting wholesale, unless I can find the time and energy to take notes during the year to remember everything that happened. Maybe in 2022.

I still want to try tracking win loss records for MMA gyms etc.

Well to me a win is a win, except with disqualifications. I'm still rankings Petr Yan above Aljamain because Petr was winning that one. But anyways to me and everyone else voting, Anthony Smith won that match regardless of getting taken down by a guy whose leg he disabled.
