  1. I would consider Yushin a top 5 MW…

    I see him ranked higher than Mousasi, Lawler, Leites and Marquardt. To be honest, I have never heard of Jorge Santiago. I assume he trains with ATT since he is fighting out of Coconut Creek?

    Having said that, It looks like Leites will get the next shot at a MW title. Okami just isn’t marketable enough to risk a championship belt around his waist.

  2. I’d put Yushin at no. 5 mw
    1 Anderson Silva
    2 Dan Henderson
    3 Rich Franklin
    4 Nate Marquardt
    5 Yushin Okami
    6 Gegard Mousasi
    7 Robbie Lawler
    8 Jorge Santiago
    9 Vitor Belfort
    10 Wilson Gouveia

    Santiago at no. 3? Wow that’s a little high isn’t it?
    Please justify Leites in top 10 let alone no, 6.
    good ranking’s

  3. Leites’s victory over Marquardt puts him top 10. Santiago has a sick winning streak right now. His reach is gonna cause lots of problems for people, he’s settling down as a fighter, not making stupid mistakes and training at ATT is a bonus.

    Okami at #5 wouldn’t bother me. After Silva and Franklin, there is a big dropoff (Henderson’s record strictly at 185 isn’t as dominating as Franklin’s)

  4. Kevin, Leites win over Nate is serverely tainted. Herb Dean took an unjustified point away from Marq. In the 3rd round Marq was deducted a point for punching to the back of the head. We all know he did no such thing. I cannot fathom one considering Leites’ win over Nate was legitimate.

  5. Matt,

    Leites was beating Marquardt before getting rocked by an illegal knee. He manned-up and fought through it but he wasn’t the same after it. That’s why they take points away. In order to be fair. Marquardt lost a point and Leites lost his momentum and some mental clarity. I think Thales is legit. We’ll see where he’s at when he fights Anderson Silva.
