Come on man.
I understand but if a fighter hasnt been active for more than a year then he loses his spot but if he comes back in the same fashion he left then he gets his spot back or a step below depending on whats been going on.
Kinda like Floyd when he was gone for more than a year but didnt retire people removed him from their p4p #1/#2 spot but when he came back and proved he could still hang with around at the top then people put him back at p4p #1/#2 spot
