    maybe due to his 1-0-0-1 record at his weight class.

    it's ok, you should treat rankings as rough guidelines, not facts. if a guy isn't ranked or not ranked high enough, but wins again, he will be. and if he loses, then the argument was probably flawed in the first place.

    I think they temporarily take you out of the rankings when you test dirty

    But isn't Anderson Silva like 1-4 in his last 5?

    And condit hasn't fought in a year but is still #4 @170

    history matters. and rankings are subjective (e.g. if history matters less to you, you may not rank AS).

    ah i didnt know that either, thanks. i suppose it's this line, found at the top of the page?:

    Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC. A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.​

    Condit should be removed for now along with Anderson Silva. Just his name keeping him there now

    You could tell just by looking at him. He failed the eye test.
