    And how did Machida win that fight... Im hardpressed to find anyone who didnt give the first 2 rounds to rampage... Round 3 clearly went to Lyoto... the most eventful round clearly, but enough to earn a 10-8? dont know about that... and even with that its a draw...

    Machida had just come off his KO loss to shogun, came out very tentative and gun shy... lost the first 2 rounds because of it... turned up the pressure in the 3rd... won it, but it was too little too late. He lost the fight.
    So you are operating under the assumption that Machida is gonna destroy Hendo to say that Rampage is equal to Hendo. It's always a good idea to just assume stuff like that. It's why I have Kalib Starnes ranked above Anderson Silva, because I just assume he is gonna come back to the UFC and rattle off 15 straight wins.

    Also rewatch Hendo-Shogun and Machida-Rampage.

    Cub Swanson: I should be ranked higher in the UFC featherweight rankings

    Cub Swanson: I should be ranked higher in the UFC featherweight rankings - MMAmania.com

    "I don't feel like Dennis Siver did enough to get up that high. He wasn't ranked that high in the lightweight division. And he hasn't fought the toughest guys. I feel the same with the Zombie. I don't know. Poirier was up there but after he lost, he got bumped back a bit, but he's definitely top 10. I should definitely be ranked higher than him right now. Seeing as my only loss in the UFC is to Ricardo Lamas, I should be higher. People write that I got destroyed by Lamas, but if you look back at that fight, I was winning it, but I made a mistake, and he caught me. I've worked not to let that happen again."

    The UFC didn't do these rankings.

    Get Rampage some of that TRT.... oh wait... too late.
    rampage is expired goods. He has been for years. I havent been impressed with rampage since he landed that hook on wanderlei (I still hate that fight, btw). The only reason we even still talk about rampage is because of his out of ring antics. Its not like his in ring performances are worthy of discussion.

    Reads UFC rankings

    P4P

    *rolls eyes, stops reading

    P4P rankings are a joke. They have no place in determining who the champ fights so who cares.

    Unless the UFC explains how they decided these rankings and how they affect match making moving forward then none of it matters.

    I don't think there was as much controversy over Hendo's win over Shogun as compared to Machida's. I firmly believe I am remembering correctly.

    It was round 2 that I thought Machida had won although some smoke may have clouded judgement.

    Let's see if Hendo can do better than Rampage did against Machida.

    (I still think Machida won that fight)
