I couldn't help but notice, and correct me if I'm wrong but the only reason Matt is the #1 ranked MW ignoring Hendo and A Silva is because he gave Rampage a good fight? Honestly, who has he beaten? A mediocre Newton, Horn, and his best win over Pat Militich (who hasn't really been all that impressive even in his prime IMO.) With loses to David Terrell and Falaniko Vitale.
Now don't get me wrong, I think he has improved but maybe people might be jumping the gun here by saying he is the best MW around. Hell, I think A Silva and Hendo would give Rampage a hell of a fight, I could even see them winning.
