The Last Emperor -BJ Penn Forever -
Conor is ranked #3 and has not won a fight in three years.
Gillespie is ranked #11 and is 5-0 in the same time Conor has gone without a win.
If you needed another reason UFC rankings are dogshit.....
I don't know anyone who respects them.
Competition matters my guy. Gillespie is a beast for sure, but his best win was against Yancy Medeiros. Conor just lost to potentially the #1 p4p fighter on the planet.
Of course comp matters. That is why I said the fightmatrix rankings are great, they measure strength of wins and loses.
That is why Gillespie is ranked, because he is fighting and winning.
Conor has not been winning and is very inactive. He is not ranked, neither is Diaz.
