    I just don't see how he can be top 10 without beating a top 10 fighter! I am not saying he can't he just hasn't. Shields just beat #4 and is not ranked in the top 10, Askren who's best win is prob Herron is ranked #6! We can't just rank fighters on what we think the can we need to see them do it !

    Then you don't understand rankings and have never seen rankings before.

    No i have seen ranking. The point of ranking is to put fighter in line for title the way you move up is by beat other ranked fighters.

    Its hard to rank guys like Ben and Chandler, cause majority if not all the best fighters are in the UFC. They are really ranking the minor leagues here.

    Then you'd realize that fighters become top 10 all the time without beating other top 10 fighters. Having multiple current top 10 wins is actually quite rare and people who do have more then a few usually have a belt.

    Ranked, unranked who gives a shit. Shields wasn't ranked and he beat the #4 guy.
    Chael wasn't ranked and he beat Shogun. Ranks mean nothing unless you're in the military.

    Who cares? Do your own ranking and don't rank him.

    Consistent body of work does account for a lot when considering rankings, you don't seem to realize this.

    This is to bash Askren. Fuck that guy.
    But he deserves his top 10 ranking.

    Based on his ability (albeit against some lower tier guys) certain websites think he's in the top 10 of WW. Say what you want about his style and how it entertains you, he's dominated everyone he's faced save the Hieron fight I think which he still won. He could definitely beat a lot of UFC 170 lber's, there are videos of him grappling with jake shields in practice and it's pretty competitive and this was years ago, he's getting better every fight
