    • James Sanders says:

      st-pierre dominates alves even with a injury so whats next joe silva says kampman swick winner if these were ufc rankings id say fitch since he won but really can gsp do good in the middlewieght division id like to see him go down win the lightweight title then challenge silva or whoever and retire

    • jordan says:

      gsp vs alves will be a great fight at ufc 100 but gsp will keep his belt

    • James Sanders says:

      i think matt hughes will leave UFC so he can win one last strap before he calls it quits. but i definitely dont want to see hughes gsp 4

    • James Sanders says:

      Silva is nasty but when you think about it GSP has a size advantage on most of the welterweights so i really could see him at 185 and not be in any trouble he probably walks around at 190 if not 200

    • Jordan Penwell says:

      Mike Swick is a good prospect for this and 185 if he keeps whoopin ass

    • Jordan Penwell says:

      Fitch lost only to st. pierre and fitch beat alves. alves beat hughes but he was overweight so that to me means fitch should be ranked higher. true neither of them can beat st. pierre but oh well i guess. St. Pierre vs Anderson Silva needs to happen (unless Silva loses to Forrest because then its kinda pointless)

    • James Sanders says:

      this division getting to be just like the middlewieght nobody can beat rush alves might be the only one and that’s still a long shot sooner or later i think st-pierre will do as anderson silva and move up in weight class for a real fight

    • jcs says:

      Its not only about who you do and don’t lose to, but also about who you beat and don’t.

    • Jordan Penwell says:

      jon fitch beat alvez
      i don’t get it
      he didn’t lose to anybody but st. pierre. whatever. anyways sera is gonna get killed by hughes

    • LOCO-PLATA says:

      I dont like GSP anymore after seeing him cheat I lost all respect and faith in his abilities as a fighter. And I heard that there’s a case against GSP seince that fight and if they find that he was cheating they’ll suspend his license so i have a question. “If GSP’s fighting license gets suspended or revoked because he cheated does he get taken off the rankings??”. . . But I think there’s so much contrversy surrounding this fight they should fight again. So that there wont be any questions about who’s truly the better fighter.

    - Fighters who have not fought in 450 days or more ARE NOT RANKED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

    - Use the "Fighter Search" option in the upper-right of the page. The fighter may be ranked in a different division.

    - Most of the divisions have multiple pages beyond this one. See the clickable ranges above and below the ranking table.
