    Given that UFC's talent pool is deeper than ever they should have top-20 fighters in their rankings. Rising contenders such as Gillespie, Teymur, Taisumov, Hooker and Khabilov can't climb in the rankings, because ranked fighters doesn't want to lose their place, so they continue to reject fights with unranked opponents. Flaws in the UFC's ranking system keeping them away from the belt, making them stuck for years

    Top 10 should suffice

    I think it would just be that much harder to rank so many guys. Who's job is that? Is there a committee?

    They probably don’t want to highlight the fact that those division are about as deep as a puddle

    Duuude, they can't even manage a top 5 list..... now you want 20?

    Some fighter is going to make a popular Youtube video and then the would have to re-arrange 19 people...

    Agreed.
    But doesn't work because of LHW and HW

    would expose WFW, WBW, LHW and HW as trash tier divisions.
