I am so excited and nervous about the Celtics being up 3-2 in the series with the Pistons that I don't even know what to say. I don't want to jinx anything. Instead I will just watch Game 6 tomorrow night and try to enjoy it. To help take my mind off of the magnitude of that game, I've decided to update my UFC Rankings. Here is how I rank the best fighters in each weight class. Also I have added a fight I would like to see, that has not been scheduled, in each division.


1. Randy Couture

2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

3. Fabricio Werdum

4. Brandon Vera

5. Frank Mir

6. Gabriel Gonzaga

7. Heath Herring

8. Cheick Kongo

9. Brock Lesnar

10. Shane Carwin

Yes, I still have Randy Couture in the top spot. He is still the Champ right? But what a terrible division. The 9th best guy hasn't won a fight in the UFC and it was hard to find a 10th heavyweight at all. The loss of Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski quickly made this weight class one of the best to probably the worst. Don't worry, 40 year old Mark Coleman is coming back, not in August as planned though, he got hurt.

Fight I'd like to see: Randy Couture vs. Nogueira (chances I know unlikely)

Light Heavyweight:

1. Quinton Jackson

2. Dan Henderson

3. Maurcio ‘Shogun’ Rua

4. Chuck Liddell

5. Forrest Griffin

6. Lyoto Machida

7. Wanderlei Silva

8. Keith Jardine

9. Thiago Silva

10. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou

This division is stacked. 10 quaility guys here with Rashad Evans and others knocking at the door. Tito Ortiz would still be on my list, but he confirmed that 100% he would move on. I'm going to miss Tito and feel that he has some great fights left in him. When was the last time Rampage fought? Damn reality shows kill some of these match ups. You can make lots of intriguing fights though from the light heavyweights.

Fight I'd like to see: Wanderlei Silva vs. Lyoto Machida


1. Anderson Silva

2. Dan Henderson

3. Rich Franklin

4. Nathan Marquardt

5. Yushin Okami

6. Chris Leben

7. Patrick Cote

8. Jason MacDonald

9. Nathan Quarry

10. Michael Bisping

Not a lot has changed in the past month or so in the middleweight division. It's really Anderon Silva at the top then a serious drop off. Not sure what weight class Dan Henderson is going to stick to, if he'll stick to one at all. Leben vs. Bisping would have been awesome, you know, if Leben didn't have to go to jail. I'd still like to see it, but not as much as...

Fight I'd like to see: Dan Henderson vs. Rich Franklin


1. Georges St. Pierre

2. Jon Fitch

3. Matt Serra

4. Matt Hughes

5. Josh Koscheck

6. Diego Sanchez

7. Marcus Davis

8. Karo Parisyan

9. Thiago Alves

10. Mike Swick

Perhaps the deepest division in the UFC there are a ton of great welterweights. GSP has proven he is the cream of the crop, and maybe there is a potential GSP vs. Penn II in the works. Well first St. Pierre will face Jon Fitch. The rest of the guys in the top 10 all want shots at the title, but it may take some time. Less than two weeks away from Hughes vs. Alves and Davis vs. Swick. It'll be a great day for welterweights on June 7th.

Fight I'd like to see: Matt Hughes vs. Matt Serra


1. BJ Penn

2. Sean Sherk

3. Joe Stevenson

4. Kenny Florian

5. Roger Huerta

6. Tyson Griffin

7. Clay Guida

8. Spencer Fisher

9. Nate Diaz

10. Frankie Edgar

No question about it now, B.J. Penn is the best lightweight in the UFC. An impressive win over Sean Sherk proved that last weekend. The idea now is for Penn to face the winner of Florian and Huerta when those two fight in August. Will he fight GSP or the winner or both? Time will tell. I'm also not convinced anyone else can beat Sherk in this division. Looks top heavy to me.
