terrible rankings of Welterweight, get with me and ill give em the real rankings.
While I don't agree with the rankings in terms of who is the "best fighter," although the top four are actually the top four best welterweights, these are sensible organizational rankings. Somebody like Matt Serra has much more marketability in a title fight right now, because of his TUF win and former championship reign, than fighters like Condit and Parisyan, who cannot quite generate his buzz in selling pay-per-views as headliners, yet I would pick both over him in a fight.
It would be interesting to see where Diego Sanchez fits in this picture since he's expressed an interest at fighting in both the 170 and 155 pound weight classes. (I would guess right between Matt Hughes and Matt Serra.)
