    It's not like LHW is an embarrassment of rich's right now . I think it's totally justified .

    Don't get so worked up about rankings.

    I mean both Santos and Reyes are on 3 fight losing streaks, whereas Anthony is on a 3 fight winning streak...

    I'm not going to trash Smith. Good for him. He's come a long way from beating up geriatric Shogun and Rashad. He gets my respect.

    But you can't tell me Smith being #4 doesn't tell you how bad the UFC's 205 division is. Where do you think Smith would be ranked in Bellator's LHW division (and let's pretend rumble hasn't re-retired)?

    Should we pretend rumble should be ranked ahead of smith?

    Based on recent record and performances smith would be top 5 in bellator too.

    It doesn’t tell you that much about the UFC’s 205 division. Smith hasn’t beaten anyone else in the top 10 except volkan. The UFC’s LHW division is just much deeper than bellator’s. More matchups that make sense.

    Nemkov, Davis and Bader, all three would be the LHW champ if they were in the UFC. Just sherdog has a bias ... Just like how MM was ranked 1st, lost to Henry then the moment he signed with One FC he got dropped from the ranking...

    Hence why UFC washups are able to successfully compete in Bellator.

    Nemkov gassed to death after 1 round with Jiri, who went through life or death slugfests with Volkan and Reyes.

    If I were Phil Davis now would be the perfect time to come back to the UFC. Assuming they were willing.

    Fair enough but Reyes beats Smith easily unless he lost his soul.

    Glover, Reyes, Smith, Santos. LHW is mostly Jon's leftovers these days. Jan and Jiri not withstanding, two guys who are beating his leftovers.
