Five Ounces of Pain Rankings Updated

5 ozA twenty-three year old phenom fighting out of Brazil has broken into the 5 Oz. P4P rankings in a major way. Jose Aldo‘s recent dismantling of Mike Brown during WEC 44 confirmed the common belief that the still developing 145 pound champion is the future of the featherweight division.

Aldo also jumps up to number one at featherweight while Brown falls to the number two spot.

Manny Gamburyan enters the 5 Oz. featherweight rankings on the heels of his decision victory over Leonard Garcia, while Leonard falls into the honorable mention category.

Dan Hardy cimbs up the number five spot in the welterweight top ten, just behind Shields, Alves, Fitch and GSP, while Ben Saunders has placed himself in the honorable mention category with his brutal knockout over Marcus Davis.

Jake Shields has officially been removed from the welterweight rankings due to more than a year of inactivity in the division.

Yushin Okami falls to the honorable mention category at middleweight with his recent loss to Chael Sonnen, and Sonnen breaks into the top ten with the win. Likewise, Jorge Santiago makes his exit as well, being replaced with the man that served him up with a cold dish of humble pie via TKO at Sengoku 11, Mamed Khalidov.

At light heavyweight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua propelled himself to the number two spot with his impressive performance against Lyoto Machida. Ryan Bader has replaced Eric Schafer’s spot on the honorable mention category with his recent decision victory over Red. Tito Ortiz has also jumped into the LHW ranking with his recent return to action.

In the 5 Oz. heavyweight rankings Brett Rogers and Shane Carwin have swapped places due to Brett’s recent loss to Fedor, while Cain Velasquez has certified himself as legitimate top ten material with his one sided beatdown of Ben Rothwell.

  • moosebaby02 says:

    who ever gave me the thumbs down fine but really after the way tito looked the the 3rd round does he really deserve to be in the top 10????

  • hindsightufuk says:

    TITO IS DONE-ON A SIDE NOTE-DIEGO SHOULD BE RANKED TOP 2 OR 3 IN THE LIGHT WEIGHT CATEGORY-HE ABSOLUTELY OWNED CLAY(HOMO HUGGER)GUIDA-ANYWAYS-FORREST GRIFFIN IS NOW OFFICIALLY A HAS BEEN-TOO BAD-I REALLY LIKE THE GUY-APPARENTLY HE HAS SOME SELF DOUBT ISSUES

  • Hell, Couture is more deserving of a the top 10 spot than Tito.

    Couture has a fresh win over an Honorable Mention and is 2-1 in the LHW division since mid-’05 while Tito is 3-3-1 in the same span with two of those wins coming over Ken Shamrock.

    another list Hardly is overrated on, SWEET!!!

  • Midget says:

    Don’t really understand how Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is ranked at Number 4 on the heavyweight rankings behind Fedor, Lesnar and Mir and yet ranked at number 9 on the P4P rankings without Lesnar or Mir being ranked above him or even being ranked at all. Lesnar may have more weight on him than Big Nog, but Mir must be around the same.

  • edub says:

    You gave a little too much love to the Nogueiras in the pfp rankings IMO. Both great but I dont really think either should be in the top 10(pfp).

  • BigDave says:

    So let me see if I get this right, all you have to do to get into the top 10 of the LHW division is to not fight for 18 months, then come back get your ass whipped and do nothing but make excuses why you lost? Sign me up I could do that too.

    The HW rankings need to be changed aswell from 5 down anyway.

    1. Fedor Emelianenko

    2. Brock Lesnar

    3. Frank Mir

    4. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

    5. Cain Velasquez

    6. Shane Carwin

    7. Junior dos Santos

    8. Fabricio Werdum

    9. Alistair Overeem

    10.Josh Barnett

    Honorable mentions : , Gabriel Gonzaga, Brett Rogers , Heath Herring, Antonio Silva & Andrei Arlovski

    I can’t put Rogers in the top 10 just because he fought Fedor and beat Arlovski, and although I hate Overeem the fact still remain he is destroying everyone put in front of him even If they aren’t top tier guys.

    The top 10 P4P rankings are redicolous. dont know how Penn is ahead of GSP, after GSP destroyed him! Dont agree with marqurdt being in ther, dont know how both the nog’s are in there and Brock isnt. My top 10 would be:
    1. Anderson silva
    2. Machida
    3. GSP
    4. Fedor
    5. Bj Penn
    6.Brock lesnar
    7. Aldo
    8. Shogun
    9. Rampage
    10. Velasquez
