    I agree with most of it except parts of the welterweight and lightweight

    Welterweight - If you're going to put GSP ahead of Serra, then you might as well put Hughes ahead of him as well.
    1. Georges St. Pierre (Pictures) (15-2-0)
    2. Matt Serra (Pictures) (9-4-0)
    3. Matt Hughes (Pictures) (41-6-0)



    Lightweight - How are you going to put Gomi at 1, Penn at 4, and Sherk at 8?? I guess they don't take into consideration gomi's loss to diaz because of the weed he smoked that gave him super strength.
    1. Takanori Gomi (Pictures) (27-3-0, 1 ND)
    2. Gesias Calvancante (Pictures) (14-1-1)
    3. Mitsuhiro Ishida (Pictures) (16-3-1)
    4. B.J. Penn (Pictures) (12-4-1)
    5. Gilbert Melendez (Pictures) (13-1-0)
    6. Tatsuya Kawajiri (Pictures) (20-4-2)
    7. Vitor Ribeiro (Pictures) (19-2)
    8. Sean Sherk (Pictures) (32-2-1)
    9. Joe Stevenson (28-8-0)
    10. Frank Edgar (Pictures) (8-0-0)

    i dont think hughes should be ahead of serra..

    the lightweight rankings are all jacked up though..

    they agree that the lw rankings are messed up on their radio shows though.. they said they will remove gomi from the list all together this month i believe due to inactivity.

    To be honest I think besides Gomi who hasnt fought in a long time the rankings in lightweight are pretty good. That said I have no doubt the BJ who fought Stevenson would beat Gomi, JZ and Ishida.

    :ugh:
    you are whining about someone with 1 LW fight being at #8 and someone who has beaten Jens Pulver and Joe Stevenson at #4. I think they are being plenty generous.

    like 5 years ago?

    gomi has solid wins over top 5 guys.. but he shouldnt be on the list anymore due to inactivity not due to the lack of quality wins
