Lombard shouldn't be in the list when Marquadt isn't. Also I don't see how Munoz can be ranked over Okami when Okami easily beat him when they fought.

Nate moved to 170. Good point on Munoz.

1. Silva
2. Sonnen
3. Okami
4. Belfort
5. Munoz
6. Maia
7. Stann
8. Leben
9. Rockhold
10. Souza

That's my list without Nate I guess. Lombard needs to beat someone near the top 10 to get in it. He could fight any of Leites, Cote, Santiago or Misaki to get in.

Weidman I believe to be there on talent, but not proven yet. Same with Palhares, who's not beaten anyone high level enough to warrant a top 10 ranking imo.

Champion: Anderson Silva

1. Chael Sonnen
2. Vitor Belfort
3. Yushin Okami
4. Mark Muņoz
5. Demian Maia
6. Michael Bisping
7. Brian Stann
8. Luke Rockhold
9. Ronaldo Souza
10. Hector Lombard

My least favourite division of the big five. Hopefully we'll see more fighters like Chris Weidman come in and shake things up. Papy Abedi shouldn't have dropped to 170lbs for his UFC debut either.

Division has always been garbage. Good to see it is finally evolving.

I think it's a good division in terms of having fighters who are elite at different discliplined, but not so many well rounded fighters. LW, WW and LHW are all deeper, might be the fourth best.
