This list, which includes WEC Featherweight Champion Ur-eeh-jah Faybear, is taken from Sherdog.com — so it’s not unique to ESPN. Regardless, it’s discussion worthy:

As always I'm not sure I agree with the list, but then again I haven't updated my rankings in god-knows-how-long.

I'm going to refrain from any serious comments on this list. But umm.... ehem... er...... MIGUEL TORRES



The guy is good, but I dunno about top 10 p4p

THat's how the dude in the video pronounced it. I can just imagine the WEC's faces when they see ESPN butcher it's most popular's fighter's name, haha

Fabers name is hard to pronouce, I used to say something equally as retarded so I give him a break on that massacre. Have you seen Miguel Torres' fights and record. He has dismantled everyone he has fought.

How could u not see him there? He's 34-1 with only 6 dec. (1 was his only loss) Plus hes on possibly the longest current WINNING streak in mma. (15 in a row, Fedor has a NC against nog so his dont count.)

That being said, I'd have it a little differently but it was semi-legit.
