Exept for Rashad Evans and Matt Serra it looks pretty much right. I dont think those two fighters are worthy of bieng on the list .

No kid in the top 10 at FW...



yeah i was almost as surprised by that as i was to see leonard garcia ranked #3.

granted he tko'd takaya, but that was his only fight at featherweight.

So I am happy that my boy Joe still managed to make the list even if its 10th place.

I do find it odd though that Jens didnt make in the top 10 even though he has a title bout coming up.

sherdog's rankings look pretty good. thiago silva should be in the top 10.

for some reason most people don't rank kid at all in the top 10 at FW which i find odd because i think he is the #1 FW. their HW and LHW rankings were surprisingly close to mine. MW is a little choppy because i feel Santiago shouldn't be in the top 10 and i think that Lindland is still a top 10 fighter. Filho is too high more my taste and Trigg at #7 doesn't sit right with me. WW was fine and thank god in heaven they ranked BJ at #1 LW.

Not sure about Hendo being ranked top 10 in LHW when his last fight was at MW

Thiago Silva should have Sokoudju's number 10 spot too.

I assume Lindland is not in their due to inactivity ? If so that's fair enough.

I really don't think Forrest deserves to be so high. He hasn't beaten anyone except fpr an injured Shogun making his Octagon Debut. No way he should be higher than Wandy, Chuck, Jardine, or even Thiago or Rashad in my opinion. Also what the heck is Josh doing so low on the heavyweight list he's top 4 DEFINITELY.

Leonard Garcia? But no Pulver? BS...otherwise I'm happy with the rankings, especially to see BJ finally leapfrog Gomi.

Wandy is 1-1 in the UFC, losing 3 of his last 4 fights i think, so maybe Forrest should be higher.

Sokoudju has 5 fights! and you think he should be ranked higher that Forrest!?

Forrest's only big win is against Shogun, thats it thats all unless you count an almost against Tito.

Forrests big wins were Shogun, Bonnar, and IMO i believe he beat Tito.

but then again what do i know, look at my friggin av!

the problem with there rankings is ppl drop a lot for "inactivity" what constitutes inactivity?

oh well,

also i think fedor should slip due to inactivity. and Nog should be first. until someone beats him and until fedor beats a worthy opponet

I believe with Sherdog's rankings 6 months is the requirement. But it might even be longer, like 8 since Shaolin just got dropped from the rankings and he hasn't fought since September. Fedor fought on New Year's, so he's obviously not going to get dropped from the rankings due to inactivity, and especially not when he's fighting Sylvia in a month and a half.

Looks a lot better than it did. I still don't think Gomi should be ranked so high but at least BJ Penn was ranked 1st and they finally giving Lyoto Machida the respect he deserves. I also don't think Fedor should be first due to inactivity. I really think Randy is getting close to slipping in rank for the same reason inactivity.

Looks alright to me,though I question GG's rank in the HW division.I want to see him pull off another impressive win before I would put him their.

yeah sanchez hasnt beaten anybody since riggs who wasnt a top 10 at the time he should be at #6-8 ahead of karo at 9 or 10

like how BJ is finally ahead of freakin Gomi, bout time, and how Lyoto is getting respect and is probably going to be next at getting a title shot at the #2 spot

think thiago should be ahead of sokodjou and rashad possibly rashad but whateva

I think the only reason Pulver is not in the top 10 is he has only had one fight recently at featherweight.. prior to that he was fighting LW... If he beats Faber which I hope he does he should jump right into the top 5 since he is undefeated at FW and knocked off the top man...

I'm not sure, but I know that if you beat Hong man Choi once in 2 years you get the top rank in your division
