Khabib has been calling out Nate Diaz, and that is likely the type of fight that could propel him into title contention.
I would understand your argument for possibly ranking him above Dos Anjos, but the other guys not so much.
I liked this ranking a lot. Most people dont see dos Anjos so high but he has showed tremendous development on his last fights. Guillard is a little overated.
But everything else looks great. Thank you. Dos Anjos is on a solid winning streak and a lot of the other fringe contenders have suffered recent losses Tibau, Dunham, Guillard, Barboza, Bocek.
I think dos Anjos could surprise, his loss to Guida was due to injury, and that fight was going to be a close decision. When Guillard finished Dunham, he was on the verge of a title shot.
People forget that Dunham was scheduled to face Kenny Florian in what may have been a 1 contender fight for the LW division. All the fighters ranked below him have lost to lesser fighters in recent years.
I do think Guillard is overrated, but the guys below him have never beaten a top guy. I was sleeping on Grant going into his fight with Dunham.
Many people forget that he nearly knocked off Johny Hendricks at WW. Grant can do some damage at LW, and definitely can give guys like Guida, Lauzon, or Guillard a run for their money.
Nurmagomedov should be ranked ahead of Tibau,who could be ranked higher here. The lightweight division from is a complete mess.
Nurmagomedov beat Tibau in a very debatable decision. That knockout definitely had him on the verge of title contention. Considering the recent losses by Tibau, Stephens, and Sotiropoulos, he is still hanging around between I am hoping the lightweight scene sorts itself out soon.
Bocek needs a signature win. He has proven his merits against mid-level competition and gave Jim Miller all he could handle, but the fact remains, he has never beaten a top 20 fighter Lentz was around Terry Etim was a bordline Top 20 fighter prior to Barboza beating him.
Rafael Dos Anjos is on a solid run, but his recent loss to Tibau holds him back. Same thing for Tibau, he was looking solid up until the decision loss to Nurmagomedov.
All of these fighters have some sort of hiccup on their resume. Thanks for the solid info. I agree with a lot of your points. I remember it being close as well.
It was the fallout of the rankings that I had trouble with. Does Nurmagomedov really deserve to be ranked ahead of Dos Anjos, Sotiropoulos, and Bocek for one controversial decision win?
I am doing the same thing that I previously did with all of the wild Leonard Garcia decisions. Like I said, I will watch the fight again and see if Nurmagomedov did enough to win the fight.
Obviously the judges thought so, but pretty much every website doing play-by-play had Tibau winning that fight.
Cerrone has faced stiffer competition thus far in his career. Barboza may be the next big thing in the pound division, but he will have to prove himself against high-level competition first.
Overrated at maybe, but at Diaz was fairly solid. He lost to Gray Maynard in a close fight and easily defeated Melvin Guillard.
I think Diaz needs a big win at to show he is still a factor. UFC Lightweight Rankings. The rankings generated by the UFC can be found here.

Khabib Nurmagomedov 's sudden retirement from mixed martial arts Saturday has left a massive void in the sport in general, and a very specific one in the lightweight division.
The top of the pound division goes from a dominant champion in his prime, to a vacant seat with no obvious heir.
The UFC has plenty of good options for what to do with arguably its deepest weight class, but which will it choose? When asked about the division shortly after Nurmagomedov's bombshell announcement, UFC president Dana White said, "Don't ask me about the future.
I have no idea. Who do you want to see in the next lightweight title fight? This is the most obvious solution. McGregor and Poirier have verbally agreed to face each other on Jan.
Obviously, expectations were this would be a non-title fight, but that changes with Nurmagomedov's departure.
