Can't think of 10 MW's who should be be ahead of him. In any case, he's most certainly ranked higher than Mousasi.

I'm a very very big Mousasi fan myself. I'd love to see this fight.

The fact is it's not happening, and Kennedy vs Belfort makes much, much more sense at this time.

It's not even slightly debatable.

That is true but at that point it is clear rankings aren't the reason for the fight.

If Vitor was fighting Costa I see the rankings argument.

Guys ranked higher than Tim according to the UFC:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Champion : Chris Weidman
1 Anderson Silva
2 Vitor Belfort
3 Yushin Okami
4 Michael Bisping
5 Ronaldo Souza
6 Mark Munoz
7 Costa Philippou
8 Luke Rockhold
9 Chael Sonnen
10 Tim Boetsch


In any case I think the real reason for not making Vitor/GM is timing. Vitor doesn't want to wait on GM's knee.
