I think sherk should be ranked 1 or 2 really. People dont give him enough credit.

Lay and pray does deserve credit. The last two guys he fought are both jiu jitsu specialists, go try and hold a jiu jitsu black belt on the mat for 25 minutes. Just because its not as entertaining doesn't mean it is easy.

Never said it was easy but when it's entertainment I like more excitment. I think people should factor in excitment when making rankings. Sherks good at laying on people....so are hookers.

First of all NO , when you ranked fighters on whos the best , excitement should not be a facter and to the other guy who says that its stupid to say sherk should be number one or two because of beating florian and franca you must be kidding when youve done great things at a bigger weight it dosent disappear when you DROP class , in 35 fights he has only lost to hugues and gsp the greatest in the ww division . he defeated two times karo parisyan wake up man

Anyone with a head on his shoulders doing rankings in either boxing or MMA knows that you rank fighters according to what they've done in the weight class they compete in.
Sherk may be ranked in the 170 division also but that is totally seperate from his 155 placement.

It's funny that you set up rules for someone elses rankings and tell them they can't factor in excitement (which I agree about) but then you disregard one of the most obvious rules ever used in legitimate rankings.

I don't see how BJ gets top ranking... Before his fight with Jens, I can't remember the last time he fought at LW...

Sherk should be higher

I like where you got Gilly

I think Kid's a 145er, no?

WHAT??? Sakurai is a welterweight, Roger Huerta is just hype he hasn't fought anyone good, Kenflo is good but he needs to beat top comp.

Why? If there are two fighters with near equal wins, competetion ect. I am going to rank the more exciting fighter higher. If I want to see decisions i'll watch boxing. I see lay and pray as an inability to finish fights, that to me deserves a lower ranking.
