    In a division of absolute killers, how the heck is Gil still ranked over Khabib,Bendo,RDA,and Cerrone? All due respect to Gil, but he is 1-2 in the UFC. With the recent developments in the LW division, I have Gil at #6.

    He's ranked 4th... or 5th if you count showtime as #1

    Yeah that don't make much sense. Even the UFC rankings are better.

    Champion : Anthony Pettis
    1 Rafael dos Anjos
    2 Khabib Nurmagomedov
    3 Donald Cerrone
    4 Gilbert Melendez

    I don't have him #2 either but his two losses were for the belt. Not to some Joe Schmo.

    Gil is tough as nails, he could go on a nice run and possibly put himself in a better position? But dang, Gil has a lot of wood to chop before earning another chance at the strap IMO.

    Was Bendo the champ when he beat Gil?

    Just confirmed it. Both Gils losses were for the title.

    IMO he beats every other LW. I thought he beat Benson, but very slightly.

    Yah Sherdog has their heads up their ass so hard on this one it's pathetic. There is no logical justification, I don't care how much you like Gil or think he's the number 2 LW in your own head... who's his best win, Josh Thompson in close fights?

    Fan of melendez and his style sometimes, but their is no way he is number 2 at LW maybe 5 or 6. I see dos anjos and cerrone beating him.

    I still don't get how the Sanchez fight was enough to give Gil a second shot at the belt.

    Agreed it doesn't make sense. Khabib is undefeated at LW and has top wins he should be ranked #2.

    It wasn't. Gil leaving for Bellator was what got him another title shot.

    Sherdog rankings are always terrible.

    I remember when they had Schaub in the top ten for the longest time with no mention of Big Country who had just KOed him.

    I also didn't understand their recent obsession with Jeremy Stephens.

    Yeah, ranking Benson below Gil is also stupid. Call me crazy, but I think rankings should be based on wins...

    1 Anthony Pettis
    2 Khabib Nurmagomedov
    3 Rafael dos Anjos
    4 Benson Henderson
    5 Donald Cerrone
    6 Gilbert Melendez
    7 Edson Barboza
    8 Bobby Green
    9 Josh Thomson
    10 Eddie Alvarez

    These are mine. Eddie is the only iffy one because he's unproven in the UFC. I debate moving him to 7 & dropping the others down a notch but I'll wait till he gets a UFC win.

    These are also just UFC rankings. Outside the UFC included, replace Eddie with Will Brooks. I hold his two wins over chandler higher than Eddie's split win.
