I can't put Sonnen in there as he has moved to LHW.
If you can't put Sonnen on there because he moved to LHW then you can't put Vitor on there either. The only difference is Sonnen hasn't fought at LHW yet and Belfort has. If you go to the official UFC site they have Sonnen and Belfort at LHW. That would almost be like not having Frankie ranked high up on the LW division, which he still is. Even though he's made it official that he will be at Featherweight. But then you can't have Frankie ranked at the top of the Featherweight division because he hasn't fought there yet.
The reason I have Weidman ranked so high (#2) is because of the run he's been on. He's undefeated as a pro and 5-0 in the UFC. A couple of his fights where against lesser competition. But I think everyone can agree that his competition is getting stiffer with each and he's looking better with each fight. Also his last fight with Mark Munoz, who I believe was ranked #3 at the time, was more than impressive. 2nd round KO that Munoz didn't even land a punch or a takedown. IF you remember correctly Munoz would have been granted the title shot with a win over Weidman. Also Weidman has been very active with 5 fights in 1 1/2 years and another one coming up against Tim Boetsch where Weidman has opened up as a huge favorite ranging from -375 to -500.
