Frank Mir at 2???WTF is this and why is Arlovski so low? Also I love Nog and know he had Staph and a Knee injury in the Mir bout but, he is too high.

example you put miguel torres as rank3 p4p , when his "average opponent strength" is basically a guy who won 1 or 2 fights...

The fact that you don't have Bisping in your top ten, but sonnen in at 9 is ridiculous...

Look at Bispings record at MW, and then look at sonnen's record just in the last two years. Please tell me you're joking? Sonnen's win over Filho (formerely #2-4), along with his awesome 2008 puts him in the top ten you jerk off.

Frank Mir beat the former #2 HW and the current #4-5 HW, so I think he deserves his spot at #2. Disrespect Nog on your own time. That is what you're doing when you refuse to look at his recent accomplishments.

Both AA and Tim Sylvia are 5-3 in the last 3 years, but two of AA's losses are to the big man, so this is a dumb point on your part. Rankings are based on 3 years, so Tim is rightfully ahead of AA.

Why is Wandy ranked below Jardine? I like most everything else, but I still think Forrest and Rashad deserve to be ranked ahead of Rampage for the near future. I also have Forrest rightfully ranked ahead of Shogun, even though I have Shogun ranked ahead of Rampage. ;p
