    so basically if dana loves you he will keep rank you higher

    It's almost like the rankings dont really mean anything. Like, rankings are subjective or something.

    Aldo lost 1 fight in a close decision.

    Cody Necktats lost 3 fights by KO.

    Aldo > Cody . I am okey with this.

    UFC Rankings and the people who assign them have always been an inside joke to people in the know.

    Aldo had a pretty close fight ( a lot of people are even saying he won) with the number 1 ranked contender at 135, ranking him at #8 is actually one of the better ranking moves the UFC has made recently.

    Jacare lost a close decision to the 6th ranked LHW, that sure makes it seem like he is close to the 6th ranked spot, putting him at #15 makes sense, I would argue he should be closer to #6.

    The UFC often has wonky ratings, because they aren't decided by set criteria. That being said the two examples you gave are actually good ranking jobs.

    Yes, proper spelling and grammar is absolutely critical when on a cagefighting website.

    And yes, the ranking system is a joke.
