    My November 2012 Zuffa Fighter Rankings -

    Interesting to see his take. Good on him to put himself out there with his picks.

    Kinda interesting seeing Shane Carwin as high as 6 following his inactivity. I don't even know if I'd have Thiago Silva in the top 10 @ LHW as of this moment.

    I'd like to read about his reasoning.

    I'm a big fan of Shane Carwin, but I don't think I can rate him that high anymore since he's been so inactive. I think he has to come back and get a win to validate his rank.

    Kinda awful rankings.

    Carwin should be much lower due to his inactivity. Werdum should be in the Top 5.

    I have Phil Davis ahead of Thiago Silva and even Goose, as he holds a victory over him.

    MW is the worst of the bunch. Bisping is NOT a top 4. He is not ahead of Vitor, Belcher, or Boetch. Munoz should still be up there and ahead of Bisping too. Le and Stann dont belong, and Okami should be there somewhere in the bottom.

    Nick Diaz is ranked way too high. His SF victories are being held in high regard and I dont understand why. HIs best win in SF was Daley and Daley was hardly a top 10. As good as the Penn victory was, he still should be behind Condit (as he lost to him), and Fitch, and even Kampmann. I think Rory is ranked way too high. He doesnt have any top 10 win yet, and should be behind Jake, Kos, and Penn.

    Good to see Dos Anjos getting some love but kind of interesting to see him on there considering he lost to Tibau not too long ago, but he has looked great lately. I bet it won't be long and Nurmagomedov will be on top 10 lists..

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

  7. Default

    It's a good base to work with. A few addtions , deleations, and a few moves it would be real good. I also realize my picks would get tore up too, but his top few I agree with.

    Carwin and Barnett are way too high.
    Forrest and Rampage are way too high.
    Diaz over Condit is a headscratcher.
    Bj Penn is NOT top 10.

    Those are what stick out to me the most.

    Overall, not to bad, pretty much on par.

    I think those ranking are pretty good. Florian always had a high MMA IQ. The only ones I don't really like are Barnett at 5 and Jorgensen ranked when Wineland isn't, since he just had a vicious KO win against him.
