I'd still favour martinez over everyone at 154 and i still think he's the best in that division even without being ranked in it
You mean...you think
that he would be
actually fought there?!
I'd favour Adamek or Haye to beat the cruisers right now, but if some guy comes tearing through that division and beats the actual top-ranked guy there, I'm not going to go "He didn't fight the best cruiserweight, who doesn't fight there that I think would beat him, so I can't say he fought the best." because they don't fight there!
