    With the new ESPN deal they should be removed or at least perfected.

    Rankings are fake anyway and merely a popularity contest so why would they be removed, what difference does it really make? UFC might just still use it secretively if removed to give Shelby a gist of who's who.

    I've said it a million times before, and I'll say it again, those rankings ARE NOT created by independent MMA journalists.

    ESPN could do UFC porn star rankings.

    Colby would be number 1.

    I'll never forget Ronda being ranked ahead of Dillashaw, the men's champion in the same weight class, on the pound-for-pound list. it was so stupid that it was almost brilliant.

    P4P rankings are stupid

    The other rankings do help casual fans. Should it be perfected? Sure, just use take sherdog, mmajunkie, fight matrix rankings and average it out.

    Damn, that's like 28 lost (paying) customers.

    UFC is truly dying.

    Yes but the UFC has to at least pretend like there is some independent input otherwise it would looks like the matchups are being made WWE style.

    86 rankings

    It makes no sense how sometimes they try to make them seem legitimate and other times they are clearly just pushing agendas. Get this shit out of my face.

    why is it that mma fans have a problem with p4p rankings? works perfectly fine for the boxing and kickboxing community.
