ESPN Lightweight Rankings; Edgar and Melendez Frozen, Contenders Emerge

August 15, 2012 10:59 am by bjpenn.com staff 26 Comments

In the latest ESPN rankings Frankie Edgar still holds the number two spot. Once again, respected Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez fails to make it to the second spot in the poll. Interesting to note is Mike Chandler’s position on the list tied with fan boy favorite Clay Guida. Maybe it was Guida’s lackluster performance against Maynard?

Here is the complete list:

1. Benson Henderson 17-2-0

2. Frankie Edgar 14-3-1

3. Gilbert Melendez 21-2-0

4. Gray Maynard 11-1-1

5. Nate Diaz 16-7-0

6. Anthony Pettis 15-2-0

6. Donald Cerrone 19-4-0

8. Mike Chandler 10-0-0

8. Clay Guida 29-14-0

10. Eddie Alvarez 23-3-0

Others receiving votes: Jim Miller 6, Joe Lauzon
