Rankings just got released
Chael isn't in the top 10 in middleweight or light heavy weight, but has back to back title shots? Don't understand are the rankings right?

Anybody dispute any of the other rankings? Phone Post

rrefs - Haven't seen the rankings but I believe Chael is at least top 5 at MW.

Chael is no longer a MW so he can not be ranked there and he hasn't won a LHW title shot since when? Like 2006? it'd be stupider to put him in the LHW rankings compared to the MW rankings.

The rankings are correct, UFC just doesn't give a shit, Chael sells a fight so that is the fight that gets made.

Without looking I would guess they didn't consider him a middleweight and didn't want to rank him at 205 without winning a fight there first? I don't agree with it either, Chael would beat several of the 205 top 10.

All you have to do is call someone out, and you get the shot at the Champ. Unless your Cyborg, and you call out Rousey. Then Dana White tells everyone there is only a 135lb women division, and Rhonda Piglet never fights a true contender.

Chael can't be ranked as a MW cause he's a LHW now.

Chael is getting his title shot due to wanting to fight the champion, when no one else would.

Chael is not ranked higher than any of those 10 LHW's listed cause he's new to the weight class. Phone Post

They probably left him out of the rankings because he is now at LHW but cant put him in top 10 because he hasn't fought there in years.

@sonnench: LHW
- you might as well write the LHW rankings backwards because that's about as much sense as it makes without me on top of them. Phone Post

Yet they ranked Edgar at 145 without him winning a fight there first.

But he did fight there, therefor he can be graded in his performance.

I just think its retarded b.c how are they going to come out with rankings before a LHW Title fight with John Jones and not have his contender be in any of the top 10 rankings. Talk about a mind-puck for the casual/new fanbase. Just saying.. Phone Post
