Everything seems to be just about right, but don’t ask us why UFC welterweight champ Georges St Pierre was listed as 4th in his division.  The only reason why we see him drop in rankings is probably due to his inactivity.  The French Canadian champ hasn’t fought since defeating Jake Shields on April 30th, 2011 at UFC 129.  Would you still consider GSP to be 4th at 170?

What are your thoughts on the overall UFC/MMA Rankings?

    GSP in 4th Just do not seem right. The champ is the champ he completely wiped out the welterweight division and has not lost in years. I could maybe see an argument for Condit been in 1st. But, Hendrick and Kampmann there is no reason for them to be above GSP.
