SB Nation/USA Today Rankings -Lightweight

Filed under: Uncategorized — kneebar @ 11:18 am

Bloody Elbow, part of the SB*Nation has partnered with USA Today for weekly MMA rankings.  Let’s break it down (I’ll only hit top 10 or 15 as the top 25 is sketchy at best, and not totally relevant to the title picture):


Let’s look here, BJ is good at 1.  Aoki at 2 is a tough sell, he’s the WAMMA champ which is a negative, and he fights up and down competition.  Florian and Sherk are fine and Alvarez is placed about right.  Hansen, JZ, and the Punk are ranked well.  I personally would switch Crusher and Kitaoka.  Also, Gomi has no business on this list right now, and Jamie Varner should be higher, but not much.
