I agree about pretty much everything but Mendes being a gimme or it getting harder after him. Mendes has been the clear cut No.2 for a while and I don't see anyone but Aldo or maybe Edgar beating him.

FW is stacked as hell, yes...

But it's still top heavy. Aldo, Mendes, Edgar, even Swanson are solid as hell.

But talking about Chan Sung Jung and Collin MacGoober in the top ten, man, that's a shame. If you ask me, two of the top five pound for pound fighters on earth are in the UFC's 145 ranks, but it's not got quite as much talent in the top ten as say 170, or even 155 to be honest.

They get an edge because Edgar hasn't done anything at FW so it's hard to rank him accurately against the other contenders. The Swanson fight will clear up how he really fairs, whether Frankie loses a close fight or just gets dominated.

Are those updated? How the hell is McGregor ahead of Bermudez?

I think what made it so stacked is Aldos inactivity. It has caused a backup of title contenders. Mendes, Swanson, Bermudez, winner of Poirer-Swanson, are all deserving of title shots. I just hope they'll keep fighting each other instead of waiting around for a titleshot.
