    These latest rankings by Sherdog are a fucking JOKE.

    Explain to me again why someone who lost his last fight and hasn't won a fight in almost 3 years is the number 2 ranked fighter?

    or why Stipe Miocic who is on a 2 fight win streak is ahead of Rothwell?

    Or why Overeem, who got KNOCKED OUT COLD by Rothwell and has less consecutive wins than Rothwell is ranked ahead of him?

    Bogus.

    Rothwell should be number 2. End of story.

    Political games by the MMA community will not slow Ben Rothwell down.

    When Rothwell claims the HW strap everything else will just be a formality.

    I wish a really tech-savvy admin could add a filter that prevents threads from being able to be started by someone complaining about rankings.

    We get it. Rankings are subjective and people will always disagree. And even the official UFC rankings aren't even used for matchmaking or title shots. It's just a list people like to make up. Try not to let it ruin your day.

    Ben Rothwell winning the HW championship would send UFC back to the dark ages

    Look, if Rothwell wins the title and STILL isn't ranked higher, I shall join the posse. Until then, let's worry about the stuff that's actually IMPORTANT, like global warping.
