    bj penn should be in the top 10 rankings

  2. John Geary says:

    Mir should be over Big Nog who he defeated 2x

    • Brody says:

      I don’t think either should be ranked. One can’t stay healthy and the other has lost 3 in a row. If that doesn’t kick you off of the top 10, idk what does.

    • Sean Fram says:

      Yeah I understand your opinion on that but Frank Mir’s lost his last four fights n a row and that that’s why they gotta rank like at I think you should be right about being of he should still be ranked no. 10Least I love Frank there but yeah I guess you’re right away and then like they’re wrong in a way

  3. Chris Jones says:

    I agree, Nog should not be ahead of some one who KO and Sub’d him
