How is Rich Franklin Ranked for 205 and not Anderson?

I don't understand how Ishida is considered top 10 either. That guy sucks so hard.

I kind of agree with the HW rankings.

I am not gonna begin to start stating what is wrong with the LHW all i can say is Thiago Silva at 10 and Lyoto at 3 = wtf

Middleweight = Paulo Filho @ 10 lol, Filho is imo the 2nd or 3rd bestmiddleweight. WTF. Also id like to see Demian Maia on that list after a few more decent fights

Welterweight is okay for now, but its in a pretty mobile stage, where a few fights might propel you up that list, or take you out of the top 10 all together. I think Karo being the gatekeeper for the Welter weight div is a good thing, if they can't beat karo they shouldn't be in the top 10.

Lightweights: Id like to see KFlo further up that list, and i see Shinya as being the 2nd best lightweight atm (although thats just personal opinon)

All in all the list is complete shit, except for maybe the HW division

Did you not watch Filho's last fight? It'd be like Mohammad Ali coming out and just getting his ass beat up all over the show, and dropping. People would drop that guy like it's hot! I don't think that's the biggest upset on that thing either.

I think Lyoto doesn't get a lot of respect and I don't know why. I think that's a good rating for him actually, I agree that Thiago should be a few up though. He(Lyoto) has beat a lot of guys people didn't think he could, I don't see Machida not winning that eventual fight either.

The Heavy weight one is just garbage too. I hate Lesnar, but he's better in my opinion than Cro Cop at this point. That's just one example, but I think the first 4 are solid.
