Where does Gomi rank if you pop his fight vs. Diaz into the Fight Matrix as a Loss, as it should've been.

Just out of curiousity; I'd like to see how it would affect his point total in your ranking system.

Kpro, I am not exactly sure, but he would not be anywhere near #1 that's for sure. You can ask JCS on our forum he might be able to tell you

but it can not factor in other things important things such as cardio, a fighters focus on a specific fight and other mental things and also a fighters chin and heart. it can accurately describe an offensive aspect but can not accurately describe a fighter as a whole....

let me rephrase my original statement......the computer should upload a virus into itself......

I'd rather a computer not being able to factor in the things listed above than every fan's fighter biases working their way into rankings.

At least computers don't have biases.

Just my two cents.

its stat based, when one guy is completely destroying the division like gsp is, beating him will statistically carry you higher than alot of people.

Top 10 lists are like the old IFL Teams. They determine future fights but not the best fights and other than that they're more or less useless.
or
Top 10 lists are like a$$holes, Sherdog is full of them.
or
If Top 10 lists were currency they wouldn't even be worth wiping my a$$ on.
