I think Gil Melendez sticks out like a sore thumb on that list.

I thought the same thing when I saw it.

How is he even on the list?!
Thomson X2
Aoki
Kawajiri
Masvidal

are his last 5 opponents and not one is top 10. Go even further into his record and it gets less impressive. I don't get how people outside the UFC get ranked so high without fighting the level of competition thats required for a top 10 guy.
Maynard, Edgar, Miller, Pettis, BJ and a few others in the LW devision could beat him.
Thompson had a seriously competitive fight and IMO he'd get smashed by everyone on the list above.

i think its safe to say that every UFC champion should be on that list. i dont think there are any fighters outside the ufc that deserve to be there. the ufc has to much money and reputation not to own the best fighters. switch Dominick with Gil and the list would be fine. i think SF has lost to many talented fighters anymore, IMO they are on the same level as bellator with bellator close to passing them in talent
