    Matt Lindland is the number 1 middleweight and dan henderson is only number 5? Sean Sherk is the number 10 lightweight and BJ isnt even on there. Alot of others seem a little off too, how do they rank this shit?

    I would venture to say that MMA is going to be especially tough to rank because you can have guys who are "chumps" that can beat favored guys just based on stylistic differences.

    That said, they probably get 4 or 5 guys together, and have everybody write their top 10 down and compare/contrast. :mamoru:

    wtf Matt Serra

    I think the ranking should be taken really really lightly. Anybody can beat anybody, and very rarely are there fighters who hold the number 1 spot who have been undefeated.

    Exactly, they aren't anywhere near "official".

    I mean I can see how they would think that concidering matt lindland jumped up two weight classes and stood toe to toe with fedore and it wasnt a blow out it was a pretty good match on his part. Now you might say hey what the hell does that have to do with the middle weight division but its a comment on the skill of the fighter. As for rich franklin over hendo that I cant explain.

    maybe because Hendo hasn't fought in 185 in a while? he is pretty high in 205 right now.
