Per the UFC website: The rankings panel is comprised of media members from the following outlets: KHON Honolulu, MMA Oddsbreaker, CFMU 93.3, Bursprak.se, FightNews, Fight Network, Gazeta Esportiva, Cherokee Scout, Burbank Leader, MMA Weekly, KIOZ 105.3, Vladusport.com, Wrestling Observer, Top Turtle Podcast, My MMA News, MMA Fight Radio, BoxeoMundial, Kimura.se, MMA Soldier, MMA NYTT, Blood & Sweat, Inside Fighting Radio. I'm sure this has been discussed before.... But WHO? Why can't we get more serious players from major MMA media sources instead of some randos that only hardcore MMA-media-ingesters would know? At the same time, having guys like Ariel who would make claims for Conor still being the greatest while on a 4 fight skid would potentially be worse. Is it even possible to win with any ranking panel?
