That is ridiculous to have Jon Jones on that list. He is successful in part because he outsizes his opponents. Do people just not understand what the term means?

on a serious note though.....if the UFC now has "official" rankings, they should USE them , not just have them for show. use them to see who righfully deserves a title shot instead of just giving it to someone. for example.fighters in the top ten should only be able to fight someone who is 2 or 3 ranks higher, #7 could fight #5, or #4 could fight #1. But #10 shouldnt be able to fight #2. he has to work his way up. And only #1 should be able to fight for the belt, definitely not someone who isnt even in the top 10. Then when a fight is over, if the lower ranked guy wins, he simply switches ranks with loser. If the higher ranked guy wins, he sucessfully defends his "rank" and gets an "*" beside his name. this would give him the ability to challenge someone an additional rank above the 2 or 3 limit. the lower ranked loser simply stays where he is.
