    Inb4 they don't matter. This is Sherdog, we love to dissect 'till death things that don't matter, ya goofs.

    http://www.ufc.com/rankings?id=

    Champion : Amanda Nunes
    1 Miesha Tate
    2 Ronda Rousey
    3 Valentina Shevchenko
    4 Holly Holm
    5 Julianna Pena
    6 Cat Zingano
    7 Sara McMann
    8 Liz Carmouche
    8 Raquel Pennington
    10 Jessica Eye
    11 Bethe Correia
    12 Germaine de Randamie
    13 Ashlee Evans-Smith
    14 Katlyn Chookagian
    15 Marion Reneau

    Note: the two #8s are posted like that on the official site.

    So, what match-ups will we have next?

    My picks (barring Rousey coming back)
    Nunes - Pena
    Tate - Shevchenko
    Holm - ????? (Zingano or Mcmann? Carmouche hasn't fought in year and Eye is on a 3-fight losing streak).

    If Ronda can stay out a couple more years she'll be number 1 again.

    What happened with Liz?
    She hasn't fought in ages.
    You'd think she'd be in the top 5 for inactivity.

    This needs to move away from opinion based ranking and more to the numerical algorithm based ranking.

    1+ point for fighting, +3 points for winning, +5 points for winning the title, +5 for defending etc - then you could break it down into what opponents you are fighting and how you finished.

    Number 8 (+1 for fighting) beat (+3) Number 5 by a finish (+1), extra points (+3) given for the ranking disadvantage. Every 4 months you don't fight you lose points (-2). If your on equal points with someone who beat you (most recently), they go above you.

    I only just thought of this while sitting on the toilet hungover, so it might need some ironing out.

    That is where and how all of the greatest ideas come from.

    No idea and no news that I can dig out. It looks weird also because her last fight was a W.

    Rousey hitched a ride with Shevchenko back to the top of the rankings. Nice trick. And we thought she was a do nothing bitch.

    Maybe if she's a Do Nothin Bitch long enough, the title will become vacant at some point and she can just take it via rankings.

    So, isn't it now apparent that Valentina should get the title shot?

    Seeing she beat Miesha twice I'm surprised they just didn't spank her to #1. If one has to go retard, they might as well go full.

    Someone remind me, did Cruz get removed?
    I assume he did, If so how long did it take?

    I know TJ Grant hung around in the rankings for an age it seemed.

    *edit*
    I guess Cruz was removed when he was stripped?
    Ronda should be removed sooner rather than later if she isn't planning on fighting soon, but maybe she is.
    I also assume the UFC will absolutely leave her up there to help justify the returning instant title shot if it was to happen, but when is enough enough? even for them?

    Holm is only considered a great fighter because she beat the women's goat Ronda.
    So what does that make Ronda?

    I bet that's not a rhetorical question.

    Rankings show what a fucking joke this shit show of a division is.

    Miesha - #1 says something about the division, total lack of skills, there's literally nothing Miesha does really well if you don't measure it "for this division.."
    Ronda #2 - good fighter, hasn't fought for 9 months or something and left on a KO and didn't do anything since
    Valentina #3 - Number 3 in the division on a 1 fight win streak and with 3 fights in the UFC, 2-1
    Zingano #6 - Was finished in 14 seconds, didn't fight for a year, lost comeback fight, almost top 5 of the world
    McCann #7 - gets tapped by 16 years old female blue belts in local BJJ tournaments and her only UFC wins are a split decision over a girl who will probably be cut, a victory over a 125 pounder who was cut and the worst fight of the year against a girl who should be cut

    It's literally "who's less shitty"

    Hey she's beaten Tate twice shouldn't she be No1?

    Honestly though she should be 5
