I think that Ed West should be 87 instead of 85...but otherwise looks good.

Javier Vazquez should be in the 40 imo

I think it's a Big Mistake not to put Lion Takeshi and Hioki in the Top 10, I also think Aldo needs to be Top 20, and give Tokoro a couple of more Fights and he'll Crack the Top 10

Is Kid not recognized as a feather weight?

He might be listed as a bantamweight or whatever they call 135 over in japan. I'm pretty sure I've heard him comment on preferring to fight at 135 in interviews.

-edit- yeah he's officially listed as a bantamweight. Fightmatrix lists fighters in the weight division they fought in most recently, and I'm pretty sure his fight against yahya was at 135 so it makes sense if that's the case.

Ok, I knew he was a natural 135 but he fights from 135-155 and has been fighting at 145 more and more so I figured that's where he'd sit.

If Kid was ranked at 145 he would be #2

I don't know man I really hope Kid and Faber fight that would be such a awesome fight to see. How is the WEC with one fight contracts?

personally I would rank kid #1, but fightmetrix does their rankings with specific formulas, so I don't know where he would end up on their list. I'm guessing he would actually end up being ranked somewhere around 3rd or 4th looking at their current rankings and his activity recently.

I'd rank kid #1. He's a small 145 but his wrestling is olympic calibur and his striking is K-1 calibur. Thats a devastating combo and I think faber would eat a big punch and be done.

Why is Grispi below Hominick? Makes no sense to me, if you beat someone convincingly then why would you still be ranked below them?

Beating Savant Young barely pushed Hominick above Grispi. They are pretty much neck and neck, only separated by 1 point.

Slightly suprised Jesse Moreng didn't make the cut...but whatever.

these are all done based on formulas, so it's not like there was a decision to leave anyone out, they just devised a formula that they thought would most accurately represent ranks and plugged in the statistics. Seems like it needs a little tweaking, but this whole fightmatrix idea is really impressive IMO. When they get their systems worked out a little better I think it will be an amazing tool for analyzing fighters and fights.

I weas checking out some of the other lists and they're pretty eak. I don't understand how Mike Swick is ranked top 10 welterweight or how Kenny Florian is ranked higher than Sean Sherk. There's many holes on these list, too many to complain about.

Swick beat Burkman who was in the top 20, and then he beat Davis.

Their lists are flawless...no room to complain...because its not done on bias.
