Apparently the key to staying well ranked is to just not fight.

Henderson and Chael both beat Shogun...I'd put DC right after Rashad. If they had fought and he won I'd say he needs a title shot. Literally they can't fucking Hendrix DC and make him wipe out everyone before giving him his shot. We was the top HW before dropping down.

Those rankings are one of the biggest inside jokes in MMA. Absolutely laughable.

Doesn't matter where he's ranked, that belt is his whenever the UFC decides to give him the fight. Not at all a DC fan, but he's made me a believer with his wins over some very good heavyweights (his last fight doesn't count). Cant wait to see him fight Jones.

Henderson ahead of Vitor. One of them KTFO the other only three months ago....And good job burying Gus there, Dana. He fights a close 5-rounder with the champ, is the number one contender, and his next fight is........ ON FIGHTPASS! Where no one will ever see him!Smooov.

Not at all laughable. Nog's last fight wasn't even THAT long ago, and he beat Rashad.
