    Boetsch was clearly winning before the fingers in the eye. That totally changed the fight. Otherwise, Costa lose IMO.

    I can't believe how many people are saying 'no'. Boetsch was a top 10 MW (arguably top 5), and Costa finished him. He is also on a 5 fight win streak. How is he NOT top 10?

    He beats #5 (on Sherdog), so everyone says no? I say yes, for sure.

    If he's not top 10, he's close.

    I don't know. His next fight could either place him top5 or outside of the top 15 entirely

    Rankings, how do they work

    Probably, MW is so thin. Let's see, guys who i would pick to beat him:

    AS
    Weidman
    Okami
    Lombard
    Boesch in a re-match without the BS
    Bisping
    Munoz
    Belfort
    Rockhold

    That would leave Stann, Paul Harris, Belcher and Jacare (and obviously Sonnen but he is at 205). Could he beat these guys?
