    The middleweight rankings perplex me for a number of reasons. Can't really get with Caraway over Almeida and Rose is too low. But I enjoyed reading, those were the only things that stuck out to me at first glance.

    Yes. But more importantly, it makes you a bad person for stating it in the thread he worked so hard to create.

    I miss seeing dubs. I'm sure you guys have put them on people but the yellow cards are certainly missed.

    Certainly... These aren't just any rankings after all... :p


    We're working on bringing them back.....still...lol. There are still people who get dubbed though. Right now, all we see is a little box with an x in it for the symbol. Not the same. Not the same at all...

    And she never should.
    Hope she works her striking at TriStar, she was "right hand" happy in her last fight and got badly out struck.

    I disagree with badly. At least in the fight as a whole... She was pretty much a one shot warrior for the whole third though...was upsetting.

    Oh yeah, in case I didn't make it clear, I'm in. Tomorrow's a busy day but I can squeeze in HI's rankings for sure.

    The 125ers look like some kind of dwarf amputees in that picture.

    I like what you did with Romero

    I agree Johnny is number 1 even without the belt.

    When is Tumerov going to break into you're top ten?

    If Cain can't compete for long does he deserve the #2 slot for?

    With a win over Andersen how high does Bisping rise?

    I think Hendricks, Woodley, Maia should be Woodley, Maia, Hendricks.

    If JDS smokes Rothwell how does that shake up your rankings?


    Nice work for a transient baby

    Nice lists, although some of those fighters have been out or taking irrelevant fights for so long it's almost weird to see them there... Rashad, Esperza and Carraway really stand out... Also, you've always rated Bader and Hendricks much more than I have, but you've obviously put a lot of thought into your lists!
