    Glowacki
    Egorov
    Makabu
    Goulamirian
    Mchunu
    Gevor
    Okolie
    Cieslak

    While It's still my favourite division, gotta admit It's not what It was 3 years ago. Here's to hope Egorov and Tischenko will bring back the excitement.

    I can't see it any other way than these being the top 5

    Briedis definitely #1

    Dorticos and Glowacki at #2 and #3. Either way round is fine. If you're of the opinion that Briedis' win over Glowacki is legit then Dorticos is #2 IMO

    Makabu and Goulamirian at #4 and #5 but I'd favour the later to beat the former albeit it would be sure to be a real cracker for as long as it lasted

    5-10 still not right at all IMO

    I can't see Lerena being top 8-9. Maybe 10th. Id put my money on Egerov and Tischenko to beat him today. Briedis should be 1, Dorticos 2, and Glowacki 3.

    This is not based on potential as much as it is resumé. Lerena has beaten Golovaschenko, Kalenga, Arslan, Kucher, Nielsen and other various top 30-50 guys. He's not great but he's certainly got more going for him than most in the division as of right now.

    I've always been irked by the silly placement of Tabiti in these rankings. 6th is a total farce. He's not even top 10 by my estimation, had to get a gift against Fayfer. By the way, worst matchup ever style wise. Both are awkward spoilers who don't punch all that hard so they make for long boring fights against higher level opponents usually. So. Much. Holding. Tabiti in particular annoys me because he has the ability to be a lot more exciting but he decides to be as negative as possible in most cases.
