    BTW Rich is also undefeated at MW.

    Indeed he is but he lost at LHW so was still facing someone of equal weight.

    I guess there coulf be aruement that Hendo was the same weight or clse enough to Little Nog as Hendo was listed at 199lbs but he looked small so I think he was still at 185lbs, I don't really trust Pride's weight stats.

    Sherk is not on the list because he was in between WW and LW so i didn't put him at either, if he was at either he would definately be on my list but until he actually fights at LW i can't.

    I would also rank Sergei Kharitonov higher than #8 (switch him with Werdun), remove Vera, place Hunt at #9 and AA at #10.

    He just dropped to LW and is fightless, it is assinine to rank someone before they fight at that weight class as we don't know how "awesome" he is yet though hopes are certainly high for him.

    Arlovski dropped in rankings, certainly Barnett is the #4 HW in the world (though you are putting the champs at the top so Barnett should move to 5).

    Forrest has not earned top 10 yet, he would get raped by Nakamura so I would put Nak at #10. Chuck not #1, #3 sounds about right though I am not sure he would beat Arona but #3 behind Shogun sounds close.

    MW Hendo has to be #1 as he is undefeated in his Weight class and Franklin is not in addition to the fact that Hendo's competition is hands down more difficult. He has wins over the #2 ranked HW in the world Big Nog, Babalu, Nakamura, Ninja and Bustamante x2.

    I really don't see how there's any valid arguement as to which should be the #1 ranked MW.

    No problem, a rankings debate is always fun because almost no one would have an exact copy of someone else so there's always room to explain why yours is like it is and have someone tell you why they have theirs like they do.

    I thought those lists were alright.I'd make a few changes ,but they were pretty good.I'd make a few changes at LW.

    Even a month ago I wouldn't put Yves in the top ten.Everyone acts like he was the uncrowned LW champ of the UFC.My question is why?He landed a beautiful head kick to Josh Thomson after getting beat dare say dominated by him in that fight and everyone acts like he was the best in the UFC.I'd put Sherk,Kenflo,Stevenson,Pulver,Hominick,and others in the UFC LW division above him.

    Also I'd make some changes at MW ,but everyones MW is different.It's kind of a wide open division.

    not a bad list, but i would like to see it updated after the week-end for obvious reasons. sanchez should be ranked higher than karo and so on...
