This is what the ranking should look like. Maybe they're off, maybe there not. If AA was ranked third and big Tim beat him twice he should get that spot, whether its right or not. Thats how rankings go. Its hard to judge when Pride and UFC arent fighting the same competion whos should be higher and lower.
That is not how rankings work when UFC's HW division is so weak.
If that were even the case you can't support that arguement with putting Vera at no. 7.
Rankings are done by who they have beaten and how good they are as a fighter, you don't always need the competition to know who would beat who. Meaning we don't need to see Sylvia vs Barnett to know that Barnett would own Sylvia, asme thing with Nog, he would destroy Sylvia as well, Aleks, Werdum, Hunt and Kharitonov.
Vera would not be able to handle Aleks, there is no question about it. I would also put money on Kharitonov over Sylvia, AA and Vera.
A win over Werdum, a loss to Big Nog, Overeem (who is a top 10 lh but is huge and can fight at both weight classes) and a loss to Aleks (a fight in which he was dominating) who is another top ranked HW, Kharitonov is a top 10 HW, ther is no question.
Sylvia at No. 3 is just silly.
