I came across these rankings... And I have to say fightmagazine...

ARE YOU RETARDED?

They have Gray Maynard #8 when he almost beat Edgar?
When you lose title fights, I believe you should still be #2 in the World. (assume you were #2 when you were contending).

They also have Munoz above Chael Sonnen in Middleweight Rankings.

Get your shit together.

yeah these ranking are absolutely terrible. Fedor above Antonio Silva, Gustafsson above Phil Davis, along with their LHW rankings basically as a whole, Belcher at 6, Stann at 20, Brenneman at 39. I could go on and on but yeah their rankings are really off.

It's like they were done by placing fighter's names in a hat and having a random draw.

I'm a huge fan of Belcher and I think him at number 6 is just terrible. How do people come up with these rankings? I mean I know it's a matter of opinion most the time but some of these rankings look like they were made by people who don't even watch the sport. Stann was just in a number one contenders fight. How on earth do you justify him being at #20?

From looking at the site, I think they tally up votes from users. But with that said, probably a bunch of MMA haters decided to vote for random names. Brian Stann #20 haha, hes top 5.

Rankings are pretty much opinions after the #1 and #2 guy most of time. UFC making a ranking system would be bad I think. Just my opinion.
