The lightweight rankings could induce vomiting

How is Melendez not number one right now and Calvancante should be #2.

Gomi has not fought in a while and the last time he stepped in a ring he was tapping out to Diaz...I dont care if the decision was reversed, he tapped.

I'm ok, just ok, with some of the rest, but why no love for BJ Penn. I still think he is a top-10 worthy fighter. In fact when he is on he can beat every single name on that list.

Normally I'm cool with these rankings, but Denis Kang should not be ranked so high after his loss to Akiyama at K-1 HERO'S.

Most ranking systems are somewhat, if not completely, based on the public voters, or the users on that site. Many of those people have little knowledge of the sport. Therefore, fighters that have not fought in a while, like Penn, are not as well known, therefore they do not make the list.
