    Khabib is the only UFC champ that isn't ranked #1 in the world by Fight Matrix.
    In fact he's not even #2.

    Fight Matrix world mma rankings (7/7/2019) 1,2 & 3:

    HW
    DC, Stipe, Ngannou

    LHW
    Jones, Santos, Smith

    MW
    Whittaker, Romero, Adesanya

    WW
    Usman, Woodley, Covington

    LW
    Poirier, Tony, Khabib

    FW
    Max, Volkanovski, Ortega

    BW
    Cejudo, Sterling, Moraes

    FlyW
    Benavidez, Formiga, Pantoja (I assume they consider Henry a BW. Same with Nunes)

    WMMA:
    FW: Justino; BW: Nunes; FlyW: Shevchenko

    Agree or Disagree?
    How would you rank the top 3 LWs?

    Tony, Beeb, then Poirier.

    If the Beeb/DP fight happens the winner should be #1 without question.

    He got his title by beating Al Iaquinta...

    He defended his title by beating a guy who doesn't even care about MMA...

    The rankings make sense.
    Anyone with any brains knows that Tony won his title against a much tougher opponent has a murderer's row of victories.

    1. Khabib
    2. Tony
    3. Poirer.
    Pretty clear to anyone, with a bit of objectivity..

    Ferg won interim belt against Kevin Lee, who Raging Al beat..
    I don't really understand your logic here.

    Dustin Poirier the number 1 LW in the world? Lmao stop it. The only argument is between Khabib and Tony, that site is retarded.

    Khabib beat the lineal champion at 155. That makes him the legit nunber 1. Until he loses in the cage, he's number 1. Was his road to the "title" questionable? You could say that, but at the end of the day, he beat the lineal champion. When that happened, he became the man. The road became irrelevant.

    Does Tony beat him? Hopefully we find out soon, but at this very moment, those rankings are absolutely retarded. Khabib should be number 1 in every credible lw ranking.

    Always find it hilarious that some regard random unofficial rankings as somehow having more credibility than the official..

    12 fight win streak at lw vs 9 fight streak. Not to mention Tony arguably has the tougher strength of schedule.

    I think you mean 11. Right now, BEFORE the Poirier/Khabib fight, Tony's resume IS better than Khabib's, but if Khabib beats Poirier his resume then becomes better than Tony's.
