Don’t Blame Me For Chuck: The Light Heavyweight “ZUFFA” Rankings Following UFC 141

Only two weight classes left, and they both have heavyweight in their name (groundbreaking stuff here). Let’s have a quick refresher before getting down to business: This is the latest in a series of posts I’ve done over the past couple days ranking the various UFC weight classes based on the equation/algorithm/time waster I detailed here. Yesterday, I covered the bantamweights here, the featherweights here, the lightweights here, and the welterweights here. Today, I added the middleweights, and now, the light heavyweights.

Well, in a moment the light heavyweights. First, I’d like to draw attention to the fact that Chuck Liddell is still listed on the active roster on the UFC web site. That’s why he’s ranked here. That’s the best way I have of keeping track of the UFC roster for the purpose of this exercise. I know he’s retired. I am also somewhat perplexed that Royce Gracie appears on the UFC active roster, but hey, whatever.

Sorry to get all defensive on you. Here, have some more rankings as a peace offering:
