    Don't see how anyone can rank Bisping ahead of Kennedy frankly

    Also, whilst Bisping clearly won the fight in my view, Anderson is also clearly the better fighter and should still be ranked ahead of him.

    The rankings are so bad. How is Dollaway 15 when he just got sparked by Marquardt? Do people not know Thiago Santos exists? Tamdan McCrory?

    Well Tim Kennedy hasn't fought in almost 2 years. In that time Bisping has fought 5 times with his sole loss coming against the current Middleweight champion in Luke Rockhold.

    At what point do you move Bisping ahead of him? *the time is now*

    Michael Bisping is ranked 4th in the current MW division. I'll say that again. 37 year old Michael Bisping is ranked 4th in the current MW division. They say the MW division is much tougher now? Michael Bisping is ranked 4th!!!!

    You can't help but be impressed with his perseverance, most guys lose their drive after they take a couple of losses, but every time he loses he keeps just getting back on the horse and starting a new run at the belt.

    With Romero popping, Kennedy going awol, andy and lyoto both looking old recently, the division went from amazing to meh.

    Well, 4th=5th in reality since the champ doesn't get a number. And it's a subjective ranking that he was given for beating a 41 year-old man that hasn't won a fight in 3 1/2 years. CB Dollaway and Thales Leites both recently gave Bisping all he could handle, the man is clearly not the fifth best MW in the world. But I do agree with the comment about his perseverance, Bisping has stayed hungry and that's very commendable. Look at a guy like Gustafsson who's still so young and good, yet he's struggling with motivation.

    Frankly, it's because Kennedy is refusing to fight.

    Whilst your second line is utter garbage.

    Dollaway and Leites have both reached their highest ranking in this 'new breed' division as well. Makes me question what makes this new division so much stronger… I think it's a myth.

    I've always disliked Bisping, both for his personality and for what I considered his boring, point-fighting style.

    But I have to say, after seeing what he showed against Anderson, the fearlessness in constantly coming forward and the heart to fight through the kind of damage that would have broken a lot of other guys, I am now a fan (sort of) of Michael Bisping.

    WAR Bisquick!
