    Fucking awesome job as usual.

    My only changes would probably be Lesnar out (but I can understand your point, nobody knows exactly how to deal with all this shit) and Maia ahead of Rory at 170.

    edit: and maybe I'd swap Jacaré and Weidman.

    But well, not a big deal. Not in the slightest. Like I said, great job, mate.

    You might as well remove the fighters that got popped. Odds are they aren't going to be fighting for awhile, and they're eventually going to drop out of the official lists.

    Great list overall.

    Thanks so much, guys. It is a weird deal with the failed test fighters... Once they get their sentences like Mendes, they'll get removed.

    Except for Lesnar and maybe Jones and I would probably put Valentina over Miesha, but that's just me.

    1. How did Cain go from 2 to 4 after demolishing Browne?

    2. I personally have Holloway above Frankie. The kid has earned it and Aldo beat Frankie even worse the second time around. There was no silver lining for Frankie except he actually won a round 1 for a change.

    3. I saw what you did with Romero. Nice.

    4. &%$# Rockhold. Arrogant bastard deserves to be at the back of the pack.

    5. Assuncao still at 3? Come on? Not showing much love to No Love or Linker who had stellar performances.

    6. Like what you did with Cowboy.

    7. Where does the UFC have Kennedy ranked?

    8. Hendricks is still ranked? Come on. There has to be someone else. Larkin or Gunnar.

    9. If Jones comes back with a tainted test where does he end up?

    But as usual good job transient baby

    1. He went from 2 to four after Reem & Stile did their thangs.

    2. I can understand that.

    3. ;)

    4. Ouff :p

    5. Assuncao lost to TJ who is highly ranked & wasn't destroyed or anything. Was his first loss at BW. Lineker made a good jump with his win.

    7. #11

    9. Depends on his suspension I suppose.

    Thank you, man!

    When Hunt see's this list he's comin' for you.

    WSW I'd swap Andrade and Torres. Been so long since Aguilar not sure how much longer she should be on the list.

    LW swap Barboza and Ferguson. Also Poirier and Chiesa.

    WW As already expressed Hendricks gots ta go. Matt Brown down and Story at 10.

    Great as always except for MW :p ... Would you ever rank a non champion ahead of a champion excluding a situation like Bones Jones? Like I don't even know if I'd put Bisping in the top 5 at MW, and I think Khabib is the best lightweight in the world. Is it just a default thing for you?

    I don't see how Hunt isn't #6. Lesnar DID NOT earn a UD over Hunt at UFC 200. Hunt has won his last 2 fights by first round ko. Check the records in a month or so and you will see Lesnar never beat Hunt.

    Great job bro. Agree with the majority of it. My biggest gripe is Jones being #1. Cheaters don't deserve number one spots.

    But I have to know...did it hurt you not to include Randa on there?

    Oh look at this can trying to pass off his worthless opinion again. You know, I remember before you were a mod you make these shitty threads as well, only difference is they were almost immediately wastelanded back then. If only we could go back to those times...

    You can't have Lesnar at #10 for failing in and out of comp. USADA tests.

    What a loser.

    Thanks, man! I would & have before. It just doesn't make sense to me when Bisping clearly beat Luke who was the clear #1. But if you were to do that, put someone over Bisping that is...i'd still have to have Luke behind & then bump them back which would make Chris the #1...but that doesn't feel right either with what Luke did to him. Then Yoel/Jacare...very close fight & Jacare arguably should have won... It's kind of weird right now but, of course I think I have it ranked the best right now, lol :p
    Khabib is the best in my opinion as well. But Eddie deserves to be ranked #1 after such a strong performance against RDA who had been beasting since Khabib handled him.

    Appreciate it! :)

    I mean, he literally did, bruh :p
    But I totally hear ya.

    Thanks, mang! I know... I just left him because he'll surely be suspended soon anyways & removed overall.

    Haha...yeeeah :(
    Jojo bumped her off in the last update. She's sitting at #11 & will be back up there soon! ;)


    Ayyye, good to see the most bitter poster on Sherdog could join me yet again :p

    He'll be out of it once suspended.
