    Default my mixed martial arts rankings

    sometimes my rankings garner a lot of discussion, sometimes not much, which is why i posted on newbjack. as usual, i take many things into consideration including a fighter's record, quality of opponents (win or loss), way of victory, amongst other variables. it's always hard to find a satisfying order for light-heavyweight, but it seemed to me that featherweight has become just as difficult if you really analyze the current state of the division. my rankings aren't perfect, but worthy of sharing imho.

    looks good only thing i would argue would be lawler already being in top 10 with just one fight recently at ww and alvarez at #8 with no fight in the last year and none in site...
