  1. Wo Jamie Varner is 20th or so world lw…why is he so low at 45…??that is pitiful
    Seung Hwan Bang is a top 30 lw…just needs more experience i suppose….he at 73 is rediculous
    why are mccullough and horodecki on here??…they are can’s
    luiz Azeredo and Roni torres fight’s at 165 currently so should be considered a ww.
    Josh Neer Spencer Fisher and Din Thomas at 25 26 and 27?? come one they are each 50 or so.
    Good rankings

  2. Matt,

    Thanks for the feedback. Varner is a good fighter but he hasn’t beaten anyone. Marcus Hicks and McCullough are his 2 biggest wins and you said McCullough is a can. Same goes with Seung. He has zero big wins. He’s on the map because of his performance agaisnt Gomi. He lost to Seichi Ikemoto last year. He’s definately not top 30 right now.

    I didn’t know that about Torres and Azeredo. Thanks.

    The rest of the critique is ludicrous in my opinion.

  3. Hwan Pang owned Yokota who is in the final 4 for WVR…
    Yes Varner doesn’t have any real big win’s yet but watch out
    I don’t see how Josh and Spencer with their last perf you could possibly put them top 40….just my opinion….
    Din Thomas has sat out for a very long time now..and is considering a move to fw….he is also a injury bug
    imo Maynard will be top 10 shortly….i agree where u have him now
    Imo Crusher is easy top 10….just my opinion

  4. Matt, I will definately keep an eye on those guys, especially Varner. He has looked very good lately. I’m looking forward to his title reign.
