  1. Well since you asked, Nick, here goes nothing. I seem to rant about this every time the UFC comes out with its new rankings, but never get an answer. Perhaps you, or one of your readers can enlighten me.

    I’m almost ready to give up asking how Holm is ranked #1 contender at BW when Shevchenko, who beat her, is not even ranked and Holm has lost 4 out of her last 5 fights with that sole victory over someone not even in the top 10 while Shevchenko has lost to no one in the UFC other than the champion. The UFC ranking guidelines say that a fighter can be ranked in more than one division, so I can see how they could possibly rank Holm at BW even though she has announced she’s now fighting at 145, that her intent is to get a rematch with Cyborg at 145, she has expressed no interest in challenging Nunes for the title at 135, her next scheduled fight is at 145 and 2 of her last 3 fights were at 145. But if they are stretching so much for Holm, why is Shevchenko not ranked #1 contender at both 135 and 125? She has only fought once at 125, has no scheduled fight at 125 and has expressed a desire to face Nunes once more for the title at 135.

    1. I agree with you JR! It would be a different story if they were angling for a Nunes x Holm fight, but that doesnt seem to be on the radar at all. I think if you have a scheduled fight in another division you should not be ranked in your former division. The BW rankings are arguably the messiest rankings the UFC has now.

      You also have Juliana Pena at #3 despite being inactive for a year now due to her pregnancy with no scheduled return. It’s insanity! The official UFC fighter rankings are voted on by media members and I just dont think its the most reliable system to be using!
