Vote if you want to see Featherweight Rankings on this site, I really would like them on here - I believe that division is growing and I would be interested to see who people put at the top out of Urijah and Kid.

So please admins - can this be arranged?? If the members want it?

i love the idea. After next weekends WEC card, featherweights will get a lot more recognition. It only makes sense to add them to the rankings. and i also want to know is when the archived rankings will be up? it has said "coming soon" forever!

The 145 is not in most major orgs and honestly outside of the WEC I don't know all of them either.

The division, however, is much better now and does deserve a place.

The question should've been "Who Doesn't want to see Featherweight Ranking On Here!!"

I wouldn't mind ranking another weight class.
However, (if I had to choose), I would prefer being allowed to rank more than just the top 10 in the weight classes we already have. (ie.. top 12 or top 15).

I think most people would start running into problems picking fighters outside the top 5. I mean, kid doesnt even fight at 145 so he might not even be a choice.

The problem is the vast majority of top Featherweights not named Faber or Pulver fight where most people can't or don't see them-Japan. Name any top Featherweight in Japan after Tamura or "Lion" Inoue without peeking at any rankings. Personally I'm not against having the rankings here, it's more do enough people know enough of the non-WEC & non-IFL guys to rank them accurately.

On second though, maybe it would be good if we had the featherweight rankings so people would look at the class and find out more about these guys.

plus this is my 35oth post
