Fordi at manden trods alt har vundet 30 kampe over nogle af de bedste. JBJ har ikke engang vundet halvdelen af det. Det kan da godt være JBJ skal på listen, men jeg synes bare han mangler lidt for at bevise det endnu.
So we're throwing spinning shit now?!

Jeg giver dig ret i at Jons ligesom mangler at bevise noget, dog har han vundet over Mauricio Rua, Ryan Bader, Vladimir Matyushenko og Brandon Vera. Fedor har ikke vundet nogen kampe i den perioede hvor Bones har vundet disse kampe.. :eh:

Hvem af de store har fedor besejret for nylig?? :silent: Andrei Arlovski(09) Tim Sylvia (08) er de seneste af de tidligere bedste fedor har kæmpet mod.. Han vandt dog også over brett rogers (anser han absolut ikke som en af de bedste) men det var også i 09...

Man kan da ikke lige på top 10 over verdens bedste lige nu, når man ikke har vundet en kamp siden 2009!!!
Hvis det handlede om hvem man havde vundet over tidligere er der flere kæmpere der høre til på den liste Bj-penn og matt hughes f.esk.. :think:

“Pound for Pound” Ranking’s for May og den er fedor meget lang fra...

Ved godt det ikke er sjovt, But i had to break it to you... :problem:

Sherdogs opdaterede rankings.

HEAVYWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Cain Velasquez (9-0)
The hope was that Velasquez would make the first defense of his UFC heavyweight title in April or May against Junior dos Santos. However, rehab did not mend his torn rotator cuff, and surgery became a necessity. The American Kickboxing Academy product now appears to be on track for a Nov. 19 title tilt with “Cigano” in San Jose, Calif.

2. Junior dos Santos (13-1)
Dos Santos took a chance, and that chance paid off. Instead of sitting on the shelf while UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez recuperated from shoulder surgery, No. 1 contender “Cigano” took a June 11 bout with Shane Carwin, a replacement for original opponent Brock Lesnar. The Brazilian boxed his way to a unanimous decision win, taking Carwin the distance for the first time in his career and keeping his trajectory for an expected Nov. 19 showdown with Velasquez.

3. Alistair Overeem (35-11, 1 NC)
While it lacked the fireworks most expected, Overeem’s June 18 decision win over Fabricio Werdum nonetheless moved the “Demolition Man” along in Strikeforce’s 2011 heavyweight grand prix. After notching his most relevant win in years, Overeem will look to add another major scalp to his collection when he meets Antonio Silva in the tournament semifinals this fall.

4. Fabricio Werdum (14-5-1)
On June 18, 51 weeks after submitting Fedor Emelianenko in a shocking upset, Werdum found himself in an entirely different type of fight. Despite showing flashes of strong standup, the Brazilian spent much of his Strikeforce 2011 heayvweight grand prix quarterfinal attempting to pull guard and lure Alistair Overeem into his realm. The Dutchman stayed upright for almost the entire bout and did enough to walk away with a unanimous decision, evening the pair’s series at 1-1.

5. Brock Lesnar (5-2)
Lesnar’s old nemesis came back in May to take him down again. No, it wasn’t Frank Mir, but diverticulitis, the intestinal disease which first sidelined the hulking heavyweight in 2009. After being forced from his No. 1 contender’s bout with Junior dos Santos, Lesnar underwent surgery to remove 12 inches of his colon, but the ex-UFC champ is reportedly making a speedy recovery and is expected to return in early 2012.

6. Shane Carwin (12-2)
Carwin didn’t tire as he did in his title fight with Brock Lesnar, but the massive Coloradoan had little answer for Junior dos Santos’ strong striking in a three-round decision loss on June 11. After beginning his career with 12 consecutive stoppage wins, Carwin has now lost two in a row and will need to rebound in his next trip to the Octagon to stay among the company’s top big men.

7. Frank Mir (15-5)
The former UFC champ dominated Roy Nelson from bell to bell May 28 to take a unanimous decision. Going the distance for the first time since 2006, Mir looked strong throughout, though he was unable to put away an exhausted “Big Country” after taking the fight into deep water.

8. Antonio Silva (16-2)
When he burst on the scene in 2005, many hypothesized that Silva was the man to topple Fedor Emelianenko. The stakes changed, but on Feb. 12 in New Jersey, that is exactly what happened. “Pezao” pounded the legendary Russian, forcing a doctor stoppage after the second frame and punching his ticket to the semifinals of Strikeforce’s heavyweight grand prix, where he will face Alistair Overeem later this year.

9. Fedor Emelianenko (31-3, 1 NC)
Following the first back-to-back losses of his storied career, “The Last Emperor” seems a man on the brink. A win over thunder-fisted Strikeforce 205-pound champion Dan Henderson in their July 30 heavyweight bout could restore some luster to Emelianenko’s tarnished reputation. Given the Russian’s retirement talk in the wake of his February defeat at the hands of Antonio Silva, a loss could be disastrous.

10. Josh Barnett (30-5)
Competing for the first time in 11 months, the newly re-nicknamed “War Master” Barnett simply outclassed Brett Rogers in their June 18 Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal. The catch-wrestling stylist had Rogers on his back early and never relented, methodically working his ground game before tapping “The Grim” with a second-round arm-triangle choke. Awaiting Barnett in the tournament semifinals later this year will be Russian slugger Sergei Kharitonov.

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Jon Jones (13-1)
It’s been a bumpy ride since 23-year-old Jones became the UFC’s new 205-pound by blasting Mauricio Rua in March. First, he was to fight former teammate Rashad Evans. Then, he was sidelined with a nagging injured hand that required surgery. Now, “Bones” is back, forgoing the operation in order to defend his belt for the first time against Quinton Jackson at UFC 135 on Sept. 24.

2. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (19-5)
Following yet another lengthy layoff due to knee surgery, “Shogun” was mauled by young gun Jon Jones in his March 19 return, dropping his UFC 205-pound title in the process. While the former Pride star has a long way to go toward avenging that loss, he will have the chance to take back the defeat from his 2007 Octagon debut when he rematches Forrest Griffin on Aug. 27 in Rio de Janeiro.

3. Rashad Evans (15-1-1)
In spite of the drama that surrounded Evans and Jon Jones after Jones’ March 19 title win, the former training partners will not meet in the cage anytime soon. With Jones on the mend due to hand surgery, Evans will instead face unbeaten prospect Phil Davis at UFC 133 on Aug. 6.

4. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (32-8)
In his 40th professional fight, “Rampage” put on a show, shutting down every shot from fellow wrestler Matt Hamill and pounding “The Hammer” in the standup on his way to a May 28 unanimous nod. The win set up a Sept. 24 collision between Jackson and the man who currently holds the belt that was once his, Jon Jones, at UFC 135.

5. Lyoto Machida (17-2)
Machida threw the brakes on a two-fight skid, as he knocked hall of famer Randy Couture into retirement with a highlight-reel front kick at UFC 129. Before more than 55,000 fans in Toronto, the former light heavyweight champion reminded the MMA world why he remains a perennial title contender at 205 pounds.

6. Forrest Griffin (18-6)
The original “Ultimate Fighter” returned to the cage in February for the first time in 15 months and took a unanimous decision over former middleweight titleholder Rich Franklin. The 31-year-old will continue his road back to title contention when he meets fellow ex-light heavyweight champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 27. It will be a rematch of a September 2007 bout which Griffin won in a shocker.

7.Ryan Bader (12-1)
Bader came up well short in his February encounter with Jon Jones, submitting to a guillotine choke late in the second round. However, the former Arizona State University Sun Devil will have a chance to get back on track and add another big name to his resume when he takes on Tito Ortiz in Las Vegas on July 2.

8. Phil Davis (9-0)
So much for taking some time off. Shortly after outpointing Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and announcing a break from the hectic schedule that saw him go 5-0 in a 13-month span, “Mr. Wonderful” was pulled back into the fold. The unbeaten collegiate wrestling standout will replace injured 205-pound champ Jon Jones against Rashad Evans on Aug. 6, and he will do so before a hometown crowd in Philadelphia.

9. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (19-5)
The legendarily durable “Little Nog” provided a stiff test for up-and-comer Phil Davis on March 26 but dropped a just unanimous decision after three rounds. The 34-year-old Brazilian will attempt to rebound from the first back-to-back losses of his 10-year career on Aug.6, when he faces Rich Franklin at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.

10. Dan Henderson (27-8)
On March 5, Henderson became the oldest reigning champion in any major MMA promotion by punching out Rafael Cavalcante and snatching the Brazilian’s Strikeforce 205-pound strap. Henderson made it known afterward that he sought a quick turnaround for his next fight, and it came, though not in his own weight class. Heavy-handed “Hendo” will move up to heavyweight July 30 for a chance to further his legacy in a duel with Russian great Fedor Emelianenko.

MIDDLEWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Anderson Silva (28-4)
Though many believe that the UFC’s preeminent 185-pounder has little left to accomplish in the cage, there is still some housekeeping for “The Spider” to attend to. Silva will look to erase the most recent loss on his record, a 2006 disqualification against Yushin Okami, when he meets the Chael Sonnen training partner Aug. 27 in Rio de Janeiro. A win would extend Silva’s ongoing UFC records for most consecutive wins (13) and title defenses (eight).

2. Chael Sonnen (25-11-1)
It’s going to be a while before we see Sonnen back inside the Octagon. The 34-year-old wrestler appeared before the California State Athletic Commission on May 18 in appeal of the indefinite suspension handed down for what the CSAC believed were inconsistencies in Sonnen’s December testimony, itself an appeal of his September suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. The Oregonian’s latest appeal was denied, and UFC officials have stated that the company will honor the CSAC’s ruling, and will not book Sonnen for a bout until he is once again licensed to fight.

3. Yushin Okami (26-5)
After 10 wins and five years in the UFC, Okami will finally get his second go-around with Anderson Silva on Aug. 27. A November decision against Nate Marquardt put “Thunder” in line for the middleweight title shot, which will come before 14,000 of Silva’s countrymen in Rio de Janeiro.

4. Nate Marquardt (31-10-2)
It’s rare to see a fighter drop in weight class on the heels of a win, but “Nate the Great” will do just that on June 26. Marquardt outpointed Dan Miller in March and was originally set to headline UFC Live 4 against Anthony Johnson. Instead, the Grudge Training Center representative will take his first bout at 170 pounds against surging late-replacement Rick Story.

5. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (14-2, 1 NC)
Souza has been unbeatable thus far in his Strikeforce run, compiling a 4-0 record since joining the promotion in late-2009. The decorated Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion will look to defend his Strikeforce 185-pound belt for the second time Sept. 10 when he takes on American Kickboxing Academy’s Luke Rockhold, himself riding a six-fight finishing spree in the Strikeforce cage.

6. Mark Munoz (11-2)
The “Filipino Wrecking Machine” raised his stock considerably June 11 when he edged out a decision win in a fantastic bout with former title challenger Demian Maia. Though not yet confirmed, the 33-year-old wrestler’s name has been attached to a late-2011 bout against Brian Stann that, if made, could propel either man into contendership.

7. Demian Maia (14-3)
Maia was outpointed but never beaten in his excellent and technical June 11 scrap with Mark Munoz at UFC 131. The Brazilian submission specialist, a training partner of Wanderlei Silva, surprised many by showing aggressive and speedy strikes against the heavy-handed Munoz, but ultimately fell in a narrow unanimous decision.

8. Brian Stann (11-3)
The former U.S. Marine continued on his warpath May 28 with a violent second-round thumping of former Sengoku middleweight ace Jorge Santiago. Stann is now 5-2 in the Octagon with three straight stoppage wins, including a January knockout of the typically granite-chinned Chris Leben. While his next opponent has yet to be announced, Stann has been rumored to take part in what could be a No. 1 contender’s bout against Mark Munoz.

9. Jorge Santiago (23-9)
Santiago’s skills were not in question after his May 28 knockout loss to Brian Stann, only his chin. In four Octagon appearances, the Brazilian’s beard has thrice been his downfall, also losing via KO to Chris Leben and Alan Belcher in 2006. Santiago reentered the UFC against Stann having won 11 of his last 12, though he was also punched out in the Sengoku ring during a November 2009 encounter with Mamed Khalidov.

10. Michael Bisping (21-3)
Bisping got the last laugh against antagonist Jorge Rivera on Feb. 27, when he stopped “El Conquistador” on second-round punches in their UFC 127 co-headliner. While the Brit’s post-fight actions may not have won him scads of new fans, “The Count” proved himself definitively to be a better and more versatile fighter than Rivera. Where Bisping goes from here remains to be seen, but regardless, he remains a valuable commodity for the UFC’s international outings.

WELTERWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Georges St. Pierre (22-2)
It’s finally happening. After months, even years of calls for dominant UFC 170-pound king St. Pierre to face off against Strikeforce counterpart Nick Diaz, the UFC has tabbed the match for UFC 137 on Oct. 29. GSP will enter his sixth title defense on a nine-fight tear, most recently having served Diaz teammate Jake Shields a five-round decision loss in April.

2. Jon Fitch (23-3-1, 1 NC)
Fitch would have had the chance to erase the first stalemate of his career in a rematch of his February draw with B.J. Penn. However, the rangy wrestler suffered a training injury in late March that was severe enough to force him from the July date. What matchup awaits him upon his return remains to be seen.

3. Jake Shields (26-5-1)
Shields’ five-year, 15-fight win streak came to an end on April 30, when he suffered the same fate as many UFC welterweight title contenders before him: a unanimous decision loss at the hands of Georges St. Pierre. While the Cesar Gracie product landed at times, St. Pierre’s striking prowess was too much for Shields to handle over the course of 25 minutes.

4. Josh Koscheck (15-5)
Koscheck’s crushing Dec. 11 defeat to Georges St. Pierre was not just figurative; it was literal. Following surgery to repair a smashed orbital bone, Koscheck will spend at least six months on the shelf before returning to action, potentially stepping back into the Octagon sometime this summer.

5. Nick Diaz (25-7, 1 NC)
Left without a clear-cut top contender after his April 9 dispatching of Paul Daley, the 27-year-old from Stockton, Calif., briefly turned his gaze toward the boxing ring. However, after reportedly being summoned to a Las Vegas meeting with Dana White, Diaz inked a new contract with the UFC and has vacated his Strikeforce belt. Diaz is now set for a major title collision with UFC champ Georges St. Pierre Oct. 29 in Las Vegas.

6. Rick Story (13-3)
In the span of 15 minutes on May 28, Story switched from surging prospect to serious contender by outpointing former UFC welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves. The hard-nosed wrestler from Washington has reeled off six impressive victories in the Octagon, including wins over Dustin Hazelett and the previously unbeaten Johny Hendricks.

7. Thiago Alves (18-8)
Having previously won seven consecutive UFC starts, Alves has recently fallen on hard times, dropping three of his last four on the judges’ scorecards. The Brazilian broke a two-fight skid which saw him fall to champion Georges St. Pierre and Jon Fitch with a December decisioning of John Howard, but was outpointed by up-and-comer Rick Story in their May 28 three-rounder.

8. B.J. Penn (16-7-2)
Penn fought to a draw for just the second time in his career on Feb. 27, when he took tough welterweight stalwart Jon Fitch the distance at UFC 127. The pair would have danced again at July’s UFC 132, but Fitch was forced from the rematch with an injury. Penn also withdrew shortly thereafter due to shoulder problems.

9. Carlos Condit (26-5)
The “Natural Born Killer” will return from an eight-month layoff against undefeated “Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim at June’s UFC 131. The Greg Jackson product has lost just once in his last dozen outings and currently rides a three-fight win streak, including a brutal October knockout of Dan Hardy.

10. Paul Daley (27-10-2)
Things looked good early for “Semtex” in his April Strikeforce title bout, as the British slugger dropped defending champ Nick Diaz with his famously thunderous punches. Daley could not maintain control, however, and was swarmed on by Diaz in the waning seconds of the opening frame for a stoppage loss. The 28-year-old will return July 30 against another recent Diaz victim, Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, in a match which could have implications for Strikeforce’s newly vacated 170-pound strap.

LIGHTWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Frankie Edgar (13-1-1)
In round one of his lightweight title defense against Gray Maynard at UFC 125, Edgar looked dead to rights after taking an epic pummeling from “The Bully.” Somehow, the New Jersey native fought back over the last 20 minutes, shutting down Maynard’s wrestling and becoming the more effective boxer to force a split draw on the judges’ cards. A third meeting between Edgar and Maynard was slated for May, but both men were injured just weeks out and the UFC 130 main event was scrapped.

2. Gilbert Melendez (19-2)
Few predicted a finish from Melendez in his April 9 rematch with Tatsuya Kawajiri. Not only had “El Nino” gone the full five rounds in each of his previous two title defenses, but the pair’s initial meeting in 2006 also went the distance. Melendez topped the “Crusher” once again, this time in vastly more impressive fashion, elbowing the tough Dream standout into oblivion at 3:14 of the first period. While a date for his return has yet to be set, Melendez will likely make his next defense against American Top Team’s Jorge Masvidal.

3. Gray Maynard (10-0-1, 1 NC)
Through five minutes at UFC 125, it seemed a lock that Maynard would leave Las Vegas with the UFC lightweight crown. The “Bully” crushed Frankie Edgar in the first round, but the champion battled back over the next four to force a draw and retain his title in an early “Fight of the Year” contender. The pair was set to square off for the third time in May, but injuries forced both men off the card just weeks before their scheduled third encounter.

4. Shinya Aoki (28-5, 1 NC)
After a veritable merry-go-round of opponents saw Aoki matched with Willamy Freire, Antonio McKee, Jamie Varner and Shane Nelson, the “Tobikan Judan” wound up facing UFC vet Rich Clementi in the Dream ring on May 29. Aoki asserted his dominance on the floor in the non-title bout, eventually forcing the American to submit to a second-round neck crank. Since his lopsided decision loss to Gilbert Melendez in Strikeforce, Aoki has won five straight, submitting three.

5. Eddie Alvarez (22-2)
On April 2, for the first time in seven fights, Alvarez failed to finish his opponent. However, the Philadelphia native looked nothing short of dominant in defending his Bellator lightweight against second-season tournament winner Pat Curran, earning one scorecard of 49-46 and two clean sweeps of 50-45. Fourth-season tourney champ Michael Chandler is waiting in the wings for his shot at Alvarez, though that bout has yet to be scheduled.

6. Jim Miller (20-2)
Before a hometown crowd in Newark, N.J., Miller took another step toward a lightweight title shot by handing Kamal Shalorus his first defeat at UFC 128. With seven consecutive wins in the Octagon, Miller is clearly ready for title contention, but he will have to wait for the result of the pending Frankie Edgar-Gray Maynard bout. In the meantime, the AMA Fight Club product will face former WEC champ Benson Henderon Aug. 14 in his opponent’s home base of Milwaukee.

7. Clay Guida(29-11)
Vintage Guida was on display June 4 at “The Ultimate Fighter 13” Finale, where “The Carpenter” used his frantic pace and suffocating ground game to top former WEC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis. The decision win was the 29-year-old’s fourth straight, having also finished the likes of Takanori Gomi and Rafael dos Anjos during that stretch.

8. Anthony Pettis (13-2)
The final lightweight champ of World Extreme Cagefighting had his June 4 UFC debut spoiled by Clay Guida, who smothered Pettis for the better part of three rounds and avoided all submission attempt from the Roufusport fighter. The decision loss halted Pettis’ breakout, four-fight win streak which culminated in his spectacular win over Benson Henderson last December.

9. Tatsuya Kawajiri (27-7-2)
The “Crusher” became the crushed on April 9, as Kawajiri was smashed by the elbows of defending Strikeforce lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez. It was only the second loss for the Japanese fighter in his last seven bouts, the other coming to Dream champ and fellow world-ranker Shinya Aoki. Up next for Kawajiri: a July 16 duel with former Shooto world 154-pound titleholder Willamy Freire in Dream.

10. Ben Henderson (13-2)
Quelling the notion that WEC lightweights would be unable to hang with their UFC counterparts, former WEC champ Henderson put on an impressive display against Mark Bocek on April 30, outworking the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt in virtually every facet of the fight. Henderson will face a decidedly sterner task on Aug. 14, when he is set to clash with powerful contender Jim Miller in Wisconsin.

FEATHERWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Jose Aldo (19-1)
The violent Brazilian dynamo did not deliver one of his trademark knockouts April 30, but he did survive a late scare from Mark Hominick to win a decision in the UFC’s first featherweight title fight. Temporary on the mend to rehab a nagging neck injury, Aldo is expected to make his sophomore Octagon trip this fall. When he does, he’ll likely be defending his belt against dangerous former lightweight contender Kenny Florian.

2. Hatsu Hioki (24-4-2)
It seems the “Son of Shooto” is ready to leave the nest. Hioki vacated his Shooto 143-pound title on May 31 in a statement which discussed the fighter’s desire to “challenge a new stage.” Less than two weeks later, Hioki was in attendance at UFC 131 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, all but confirming that the longtime Japanese standout will soon make the leap stateside.

3. Chad Mendes (10-0)
While it appears that Mendes has been leapfrogged in the line for a shot at Jose Aldo’s UFC title, the unbeaten wrestler will still get a chance to add another big win to his resume come August. The 26-year-old Team Alpha Male prospect will take on Brazilian submission stylist Rani Yahya at UFC 133.

4. Kenny Florian (14-5)
“KenFlo” faced a stiff test in his June 11 featherweight debut and was forced to struggle through a tough opening round against Diego Nunes before taking the driver’s seat in the second and third. Given his prior accomplishments at 155 pounds, Florian’s unanimous decision win put him directly in line for a crack at Jose Aldo’s featherweight title, a matchup which could materialize this October.

5. Manny Gamburyan (11-5)
A back injury took Gamburyan out of his scheduled March encounter with Raphael Assuncao, but the former WEC featherweight title challenger did not have to wait long for a new assignment. The “Pitbull” is now scheduled to return to the UFC on June 26, when he will welcome ex-lightweight Tyson Griffin to the overflowing 145-pound ranks.

6. Marlon Sandro (17-2)
With teammate Jose Aldo currently running the 145-pound show in the UFC, Sandro will venture to become his Bellator counterpart when he enters the Chicago-based promotion’s eight-man “Summer Series” featherweight tournament. Up first for the hard-hitting Brazilian is countryman Genair da Silva, or “Junior PQD,” who enters their June 25 matchup having finished five of his last six opponents.

7. Diego Nunes (16-2)
At least for the time being, Nunes won’t have to worry about fighting teammate Jose Aldo. Despite a strong opening round, the 28-year-old “Gun” came up short in his June 11 bout with former lightweight contender Kenny Florian, dropping the last two frames on the judges’ scorecards. Nunes has since stated that he is considering a move stateside to improve his training regimen.

8. Joe Warren (7-1)
If Warren isn’t, as he claims, “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” he’s at least among the busiest. The 34-year-old Bellator featherweight champ has eyes on a bid in the promotion’s fall bantamweight tournament, as well as thoughts of competing at the 2012 London Olympics. Before any of that, however, Warren will have to defend his strap against Patricio “Pitbull” Freire, the man he controversially decisioned in June 2010 to earn his shot at the title.

9. Dustin Poirier (10-1)
Poirier had his coming-out party at January’s UFC 125, where he stunned the favored Josh Grispi, and looked to follow the upset with a strong performance against Jason Young at UFC 131. The 21-year-old “Diamond” did just that, stifling the Englishman’s striking assault with damaging punches and takedowns of his own, and earning a unanimous nod after three.

10. Patricio Freire (17-1)
One half of Bellator’s highlight reel-producing “Pitbull Brothers,” Freire propelled himself into the rankings with a trio of strong wins -- knockouts of Georgi Karakhanyan and Wilson Reis, followed by a decision over Daniel Straus -- which saw the Brazilian claim the promotion’s fourth-season featherweight tournament crown. Up next for the younger Pitbull is a July 23 title rematch with Bellator featherweight champ Joe Warren, who controversially outpointed Freire in June 2010.

BANTAMWEIGHT
Spoiler: Vis
1. Dominick Cruz (17-1)
Cruz exhibited pure dominance in his five-round December sweep of Scott Jorgensen, but the former WEC and current UFC bantamweight ace went on the shelf immediately afterward due to hand surgery. Now recuperated, the 25-year-old Alliance MMA product will attempt to avenge the sole defeat on his ledger in a July 2 rematch with Urijah Faber.

2. Joseph Benavidez (14-2)
Despite his two losses to champion Dominick Cruz and the fact that he may be a natural 125-pounder, Benavidez has picked off more top bantamweights than nearly any other 135-pound fighter. The Team Alpha Male product made a successful UFC debut on March 19 with a unanimous decision over Ian Loveland, and will look to follow up against onetime WEC champ Eddie Wineland on Aug. 14.

3. Urijah Faber (25-4)
“The California Kid” overcame a slow start and used his trademark wrestling to take unanimous decision over fellow ex-WEC champion Eddie Wineland at UFC 128 on March 19. The win was the last hurdle for Faber to clear on his way to a July 2 rematch with current UFC bantamweight ace Dominick Cruz, whom Faber submitted via guillotine choke at 145 pounds in 2007.

4. Brian Bowles (9-1)
On March 3, 362 days after losing his WEC bantamweight title to Dominick Cruz, Bowles returned to submit Damacio Page via guillotine choke for a second time. Next up for the former champ is a July 2 encounter with tough Japanese import Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 132.

5. Scott Jorgensen (12-4)
Already known as one of WEC’s most exciting bantamweights, Jorgensen wasted no time in transferring that reputation to the UFC in his June 4 Octagon debut. The 28-year-old “Young Guns” also put on a display of his knockout power, turning out the lights on Ken Stone with vicious punches from guard in the first round of their “Ultimate Fighter 13” Finale prelim.

6. Demetrious Johnson (9-1)
The man known as “Mighty Mouse” faced the tallest task of his career May 28, both figuratively and literally, as Johnson stepped up to replace Brad Pickett against former WEC champ Miguel Torres. Johnson used his wrestling to negate a 6-inch height disadvantage and spent enough time on top of the active Torres to sway the judges in a unanimous decision win.

7. Miguel Torres (39-4)
Defeated for only the fourth time in his 11-year career, Torres’ May 28 loss to Demetrious Johnson came by the narrowest of margins. The former WEC bantamweight champ’s dynamic ground work against powerful wrestler Johsnon went unappreciated by the judges, as Torres came up on the wrong end of a much-debated unanimous decision.

8. Takeya Mizugaki (14-5-2)
Following the first submission loss of his career at the hands of Urijah Faber, Mizugaki rebounded with a narrow split decision victory against Reuben Duran in his March UFC debut. The former Cage Force champ will go straight back to facing the cream of the 135-pound crop on July 2, as Mizugaki is slated to square off with former WEC champ Brian Bowles in Las Vegas.

9. Brad Pickett (20-5)
American Top Team’s British slugger was set to make his UFC debut against Miguel Torres at UFC 130 on May 28, but an undisclosed injury forced “One Punch” from the high-profile matchup. Pickett has won 10 of his last 11 fights.

10. Masakatsu Ueda (12-1-2)
Shooto’s former 132-pound ruler has won two in a row since his shocking March 2010 title loss to Shuichiro Katsumura. After outpointing Akitoshi Tamura and submitting Ralpha Acosta, Ueda has been assigned to a bout with Shooto legend Rumina Sato. The pair will meet at a catchweight of 134 pounds at “Shootor’s Legacy 3” in Tokyo on July 18.

Meget mærkelig LHW liste syntes jeg, men det er selvfølgelig også en lidt mærkelig skades plaget vægtklasse for tiden. Men Shogun som nr. 2, er stor Shogun fan, men syntes han mangler at bevise han stadig fortjener den plads. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira bliver med 2 på hinanden følgende tab, placeret over Henderson som ligger og roder rundt helt nede på 10. pladsen, på trods af han de sidste 5 år har været oppe mod de absolut bedste og har bæltet... det sgu en ommer :)

MMABay’s “Pound for Pound” Ranking’s for July
Spoiler: Vis
1: Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva: Current and former champions, along with a string of legitimate number one contenders, have all fallen in ‘The Spider’s’ wake. You have to go back to December 2004, nearly five and half years and 14 fights ago, to find the last time that another man actually beat him in the ring. Dismayed by a perceived lack of challenges at 185lbs, Silva has moved up to 205 on two occasions, wreaking havoc like only he can. A late, late win over Chael Sonnen and a spectacular first round knockout of Vitor Belfort has only reaffirmed the Brazilian as the number one fighter in the world.

2: Georges ‘Rush’ St. Pierre: Matt Serra’s anvil-like fists are the only thing keeping GSP off the top spot. Had the diminutive New Yorker not pulled off the biggest shock since the Virgin Mary told Joseph “You better start putting those carpentry skills to use on a cot”, it’s likely that St. Pierre would be sitting pretty at the top of the P4P rankings. He may have recently lost his claim of not having lost a round in four years, but until someone finds a way to take at least three of them from the Canadian superstar in one night, he’ll remain a P4P great.

3: Jon ‘Bones’ Jones: When we added Jon Jones to the P4P list in late-2010, we predicted that within a year he’d be challenging for a top five spot. Here we are less 12 months later and ‘Bones’ has defeated fellow ‘super prospect’ Ryan Bader and battered one of the all time greats into submission to win the 205lb title. Is there any stopping Jon Jones? We don’t think so…

4: Jose ‘Scarface’ Aldo: Mark Hominick may have made Jose Aldo look human in their UFC 129 classic, but ultimately Aldo showed one of the most important qualities of an all time great: The heart of a champion. The young Brazilian is the most devistating striker at 145; a fact made even scarier when you consider that his primary background is Jiu Jitsu. With Hominick behind him, it’s tough to see anyone troubling Aldo at 145, or anywhere else.

5: Cain Velasquez: Brown Pride is here to stay folks; Cain Velasquez backed up the hype and demolished his much larger opponent at UFC 121. If ‘Pound for Pound’ rankings are based on who could potentially beat who, all things being equal, then it’s tough to argue against Cain’s inclusion. He’s beaten bigger men, stronger men and more experienced men his entire career, and looking at the current heavyweight pack, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone with a legitimate shot at relieving him of his title.

6: Dominick ‘Dominator’ Cruz: Dominic Cruz may have earned the nickname ‘The Irritator’ from Urijah Faber for his inability to finish recent foes, but his ability to confound and confuse foes while dishing out a steady stream of punishment has seen Cruz develop into one of the most unbeatable fighters in MMA. After avenging his only loss to the aforementioned Faber at UFC 132, Cruz has solidified his spot in the pound for pound rankings.

7: Frankie ‘The Answer’ Edgar: What a difference a year makes. Frankie Edgar’s tight decision win over MMA superstar BJ Penn at UFC 112 saw him go from fringe contender to divisional king, although in the eyes of many he still had something to prove. His dominating performance at UFC 118 saw all doubts erased; contentious draws aside, Frankie Edgar is the best lightweight in the world, fact.

8: Jon Fitch: Say what? It’s true that Fitch is by and large the most unpopular fighter on this list, but take a look at his record. A massive twenty-one wins with only one defeat in his past twenty-three fights dating back to 2003, his only loss coming to divisional kingpin Georges St Pierre. Only Fedor beats him in terms of wins/losses over that time period. He might not be flashy, or even remotely entertaining to watch at times, but the fact is that Jon Fitch does not lose fights and until he does, he’s a lock in the P4P rankings.

9: ‘Suga’ Rashad Evans: Jumping back into the list for the first time in twelve months, Rashad Evans is an often-overlooked candidate for P4P rankings – something we’re equally guilty of. While he is yet to have that career-defining win in the vein of Frankie Edgar’s dismantling of BJ Penn or ‘Shogun’s tooling of Lyoto Machida, Evans has a near impeccable record and has taken the scalps of no fewer than three UFC champions. Whichever way you cut it, that’s pretty impressive.

10: Jake Shields: You can’t argue with the numbers, and the fact is that Jake Shields is on an almost unparalleled five-year winning streak. Everyone from Paul Daley through Robbie Lawler to Dan Henderson fell in Shields’ wake as he ran roughshod over two weight classes in Strikeforce. George St Pierre may have ended the epic six-year winning streak, but Shields became the first man to take rounds off the Canadian since 2007.

Pretty much...
Jeg synes det er lidt interessant med Nogueria. Hvis man ser på mandens kampe har han faktisk ikke tabt ret meget.

I den seneste tid har han kun tabt til Cain og Frank Mir.
So we're throwing spinning shit now?!

Nye rankings fra Sherdog:

SHERDOG'S OFFICIAL MIXED MARTIAL ARTS RANKINGS

Spoiler: Vis
6. MARTIN KAMPMANN (20-5)

After years of just being on the bubble, Martin Kampmann might be but a single fight away from a UFC welterweight title shot. At UFC 154 on Nov. 17, he will meet up with Johny Hendricks in what essentially amounts to a 170-pound title eliminator.

Er der nogle overraskelser :?:
