    The rankings make no sense . Cirkonov has been rated #7 for awhile but has no wins over anybody in the top 15. Both fights against ranked fighters and he's smoked. What is the deal?

    LHW is so shallow and weak that I bet you Lidell is in the top 20 right now.

    LHW is so weak if you beat someone in the top 50 you become top 7.

    The math is very complicated so best to just take my word for it, but that is how it works.

    It's an extremely shallow division.

    Ken Shamrock would be ranked 3 if he got signed by UFC today, thats how bad LHW is in UFC is these days. The division has been left to rot for many years while they signed all the women fighters and lighterweight cheap labour fighters

    I watched the Manuwa vs Volkan fight on the same card as Jones vs DC - didnt know who either guy was. They are ranked pretty high.

    UFC does a piss poor job of promoting their guys and making new stars

    Probably because a bunch of guys the UFC pays to make the rankings decided he was?

    Look at the past 15 LHW title fights. DC, Glover, Gustafsson, and Shogun are the only "active" UFC LHW's.
    Jon Jones is suspended for the time being.
    Anthony Johnson is 'retired'.
    Chael Sonnen (UFC MW) is fighting in a HW tournament.
    Vitor Belfort is 185lbs.
    Rashad Evans is 185lbs.
    Lyoto Machida is 185lbs.
    Rampage Jackson (UFC LHW) is fighting in a HW tournament.

    Division needs more young killers and depth. DC isn't getting any younger, and the other bigger named guys are older as well.

    I still think Krylov has more upside, despite losing to Misha. He’ll probably be back in the UFC within a few years.

    Keith Jardine is still probably ranked in the top 15 and he has been retired for years. That's how bad LHW is right now
