    Ya, they took down most sites. Now, it's all foreign language. I would delete your post, if I were you. It's almost as if they have a scout in here because every time an illegal site is mentioned it goes, bye bye quick.

    The UFC released their first official fighting rankings yesterday...

    http://www.ufc.com/rankings

    it was done by compiled media votes, and it's the first one, so it's hard to get too mad at it...

    but there is some notable pieces of horseshit in there..

    frankie edgar (0-1) is #4 at featherweight?

    gilbert melendez (0-0) is #1 at lightweight?

    dick diaz (1-1 + a drug suspension that's kept him from fighting for a year) is #3 at welterweight.. ahead of rory macdonald (5-1) and his only loss is to the same dude who beat diaz... and damian maia who's 3-0 at welterweight

    pleasantly surprised to see Khabib Nurmagomedov on the lightweight list though

    Sometimes I wish I was Joe Silva.

    Id make less filler fights and more fights like Nick Diaz vs. Rory Mcdonald, GSP vs. Anderson , Benson vs. Pettis, Aldo vs. Korean Zombie, Jones vs Henderson, Gustaffson vs. Glover, Cain vs. Cormier.

    Not good business but damn it would be legendary stuff lol.

    Aldo's leg kicks are top 3 techniques in MMA IMO, definitely the most devastating. I wonder if Pettis will be able to utilize his ground game on Aldo. We know that Aldo doesn't do too well in a 5 round bout when hes on his back in the latter rounds.

    Aldo's off the cage superman punch on Saturday was not too shabby, reminded me of Pettis obviously.

    Aldo's only flaw is his gas tank.. mainly because of the weight cut down to 145... luckily for him, he dominates early on in every fight he's in enough that it's not really an issue... even if he loses late rounds, he never gasses enough to be taken out

    personally, i think he's the most underrated fighter in the world... and most people would put him at #4 pound for pound... i'd put him right under anderson at #2... and ahead of GSP.. the long injury layoff and lacklustre decision fights really dropped his stock in my eyes..

    I agree hes underrated even for a champ, on another note damn homeboy Overeem needs to "hispect" his opponents more.

    Bigfoot is becoming a legend in more ways than one, for being a legend slayer. He looks like Andre the Giant mixed with Shogun and fights like a hes got concrete fists hes a smart fighter too and patient. I wanna see him fight Dos Santos for a #1 contender bout, talk about an absolute first round knockout fight.

    overeem was my pick in that fight... he's one of my favourite fighters... i'll generally cheer for any K-1 fighter though

    but even still.... that was a seriously gratifying knockout that i enjoyed immensely..

    as soon as overeem came out in the first with his hands down and chin out, i had a bad feeling... right away i thought "oh man... if big foot just catches him once with his guard down like that... he's toast"

    that knockout was just beautiful... controlled technical striking with insane ferocity

    good for big foot... i hope they give him the next crack at Cain

    Cain versus Bigfoot at this juncture, Id take Bigfoot. I think if Cain takes him down which he will for sure, even on his back he can take a punch with his big ass chin. Once the round ends he'll do the same thing he did to Cain but in the latter rounds maybe the 5th because Cain has amazing cardio and out strike him.

    Personally I think Dos Santos and Bigfoot could attract more attention on a co-main event on a card with Jon Jones or GSP headlining it.

    Cain already destroyed Big Foot.. not that long ago...

    but that overeem knockout.... man, i have a hard time convincing myself that performance wasn't a championship worthy performance

    i'd like to see dos satos vs reem up next... it was the fight that was supposed to happen... until dos santos lost the belt

    it's very seldom that a KO shocks the hell out of me... last week, it was the big foot knockout.. this week, uriah hall...

    the UFC is doing an outstanding with TUF this season... the editing is amazing...

    the knockout.... they edited that perfectly.... the second the kick lands... they cut to commercial... no replay, no reactions, just straight to commercial... leaving you marinating in that feeling of awe

    the KO itself was some BEAUTIFUL stuff... i'll be shocked as hell if Hall doesnt win it all... his foot movement is incredible, how he set up that kick was some of the most deceptive movement i've ever seen... and even then, to hit that kick from that close in, with that much ferocity..

    my jaw hit the floor when he hit it... im still kind of in awe, and i've watched it about 20 times since..

    Thanks for the info dude.

    I see JDS out-striking 'Reem because JDS' boxing is still up there in MMA and 'Reem's jaw is still made of glass.

    Cain and Big Foot will be fireworks. I'm sure Cain will take it but you never count out Big Foot he steps up in big fights.

    This kid, Michael Page, just debuted for Bellator last night..

    he's probably going to get his ass handed to him when he fights a real fighter... but in the meantime, god damn is he entertaining to watch

    Uriah strikes again, no pun intended. This guy is the real McCoy IMO. He wins the show no doubt and he most likely gets a big fight this summer.

    i almost puked when i saw the blood puddling out of Bubba's eye

    win or lose.. Hall needs to get a significant push early on... not the normal fighting shlubs on prelim cards that other TUF fighters get... he should really get at least mid tier consideration... dude is DEADLY

    that was damn near anderson silva-esque... moving backwards, quickly planting his foot, and throwing a HEAVY straight in the span of a millisecond..

    in other news... Josh Samman gives me douche chills..

    To be honest, I giggled when he said "Why is my eye hurting", its like dude you are fighting a mandingo warrior champion bro, thats what happens.

    Yeah, that flying knee to set up the counter was downright filthy, move of a true champion. Bubba was a vagina the whole episode anyways. I think he should felt his way into the fight not just leave himself open like that, that early on. He gave up the fight as soon as they touched gloves.

    This guy Uriah is top 10 IMO.

    I don't like homeboy either. Maybe its because I'm a douche as well.

    Anderson Silva LOST?! Whoa ... I know a bunch of people were calling this, but I'm pretty sure they 'call' it everytime Silva defends ... this is BIG news. What do we know about this Chris Weidman guy?
    In Masai we Trust.
