    There are no real rankings in the UFC, that should be pretty clear by now. That's one reason why the "sport" isn't taken as seriously as it could be taken. Let's be honest, the UFC makes money fights and does not even have a semi coherant ranking structure to even try to justify title fights. Hell even boxing with it's alphabet soup has more rhyme and reason to it's title fights. Dana likes to point at officiating, but he should pull the motes from his company's own eye....

    The new definition of MMA math: how many title defenses at LHW does it count for if you defeat 2 MW & 1 HW?

    (2MW) + (1HW) = ? LHW

    Don't forget to get Sonnen to carry the 1 million buys because that matters, and he is the only one who will do it.

    This. He's still pretty chubby at 230 and is known for not eating well. It's hard to say what improving his diet and conditioning training will do, but I'm pretty optimistic.

    That said, there's a world of difference between being able to grapple most of the division and beating Jones. I do think that when DC enters that fight he'll no longer have a speed advantage, will still be a mediocre striker, and will be at a huge reach disadvantage. IMO Jones stays on the outside and takes the decision.

    DC wouldn't have any cardio at 205, nor would he have a major speed advantage.

    DC just needs to get suspended and he a shoe in for the title.
    Grant it he held a title in SF but only 1 fight in the UFC and offering a title fight in a different div. Next we'll have people climbing over the cage to interfear with matchs so the ref miss's something and lets throw some chairs in while were at it.

    DC would probably lose his speed that he has against LHW's.
    His speed is one of the things that he has a huge advantage over in the HW division.

    Vitor just fought Jones, after all.

    Sure, why not. Its not like the UFC is concerned at all by the legitimacy of their titles anymore.

    Not really. At least Cormier is coming off a win, though at the wrong weight class.

    The fact that this could actually happen and not be the biggest slap in the face of the fighters and fans in the past year is just sad.
