    New UFC LW Rankings

    1. khabib
    2. tony
    3. poirier
    4. conor
    5. gaethje

    Whats your thoughts? On the one hand Conor hadn't won a fight in 3 years until now, meanwhile Gaethje and Poirier have been active and fighting nearly everyone that would sign. Gaethje has had 3 consecutive 1st round KOs in the last year.

    Conor is also ranked below Poirier... a guy he beat (at 145) many years ago.

    Shocked they didn't rank Conor ahead of Dustin to be honest.

    It looks more or less correct though. I'd probably flip Gaethje and Conor but it's not really based on anything, can't really definitively say one should be ranked ahead of the other.

    Conor should be ranked number 1. He has 50 million Instagram followers.

    They just ranked him at 14 in Welterweight too.

    These clown MMA "journalist" nuthuggers need to fuck off and a proper ranking system introduced.

    He made 80 milion in his last fight, why didn't they give him both the WW and LW belts?

    The Rankings are just plain awfull. Conor should be #2 behind Khabib and Tony at #3 and in WW he should be atleast #3 if you put Masvidal ahead of him

    He should fight Justin - he won’t have earned his shot without taking out either him or Dustin.

    Conor is a 1-1 LW in the UFC who hasn't won a LW fight for over 3 years.
    He shouldn't even be ranked.

    Rankings are a joke, so who cares? The fight was at 170. Pfft. Does Dana make these rankings himself or what?

    Remember what Dana said? Conor's and Cowboy's fight would factor into LW rankings despite the fight being at WW. Basically, they were two 155ers who just didn't feel like cutting weight.

    I know, sounds ridiculous, but apparently that's the story. Which is interesting considering Conor fought Diaz at 170 to avoid hurting his 155 ranking.

    Call it what you want to call it, but to quote Max, "it is what it is."
     
  17. As a Conor hater these rankings are probably correct

    Because he beat rank 12 guy in a weight class that neither of them actually compete in.

    That's a pretty stupid story, bro.

    Both Conor and Justin just fought Coyboy.

    Conor destroyed him faster.

    Seems easy to me.

    i don't understand

    everyone unanimously agreed 170 was better for cowboy than it was for conor

    cowboy was #5 or #6 at LW

    how is this unreasonable?
