Man, I always disliked MMAWeekly's rankings. They are too biased. They ignore results. They rank absed soley on who they think is better, not based on whether or not the fighter wins or loses. They had Dennis Kang listed third after he lost his first two fights out of Pride. Now they have Lesnar ranked 10th?

I'm okay with ranking Lesnar right at #10, but how is Dan Henderson not ranked #2? and where the hell is Sean Sherk? Dumb rankings....

-How they rank Couture at 5 and Lesnar at 10 boggles my mind. if anything Lesnar should be higher.

-Thiago Silva should not be ranked. he has proved absolutely NOTHING that would warrant an argument for him to be top 10.

-Lil Nog shouldn't be ranked in the top 10.

-Chuck is too high.

-Shogun should be ranked.

-Henderson should be WAY higher at MW. he is the #2 MW imo.

-Misaki is WAY too high. after his loss to Frank Trigg he hasn't faced a top 10 MW.

-Lindland is WAY too high. he hasn't faced a top 10 MW in years. i can see how his fight with Rampage can give him somewhat of an argument, but that was over two years ago.

-John Fitch should in no way be higher than Thiago Alves.

-Shields is too high. he was very unimpressive against Semtex and hasn't faced a top 10 WW in over 2 years.

-Even i have to say Aoki is too high. Hansen should be above him after his victory.

-Florian is too low, i think he has proven he is for real

-Kawajiri is way too high

-Ishida shouldn't be ranked

-Sherk should be ranked

I don't understand how can be that far ahead of Brock, if anything they should be closer together. Sherk definitely needs to be on the list, they have the steroid bias badly. Jake Shields definitely shouldn't be that high but I do think Fitch should be #2 until Alves fights GSP. Fitch took GSP to a decision in a 5 round war although he got beat up bad.

Decent list, I'm glad to see my boy Chuck still in the middle of the LHW pack, although I concede that he should be closer to the ten side rather than five, but its cool he will be back!!!
