I’m not sure how many times I can say this without having some large object thrown at me, but all pound-for-pound rankings are frivolous, arbitrary and as long as all fighters are unable to compete with each other — above all else, they’re senseless. In reality, the only thing that matters is the MiddleEasy Frate Trane List, nothing else even exists. Remember that. Tell your kids about the Frate Trane list before they go to bed. Instill it into their childhood at an early age. But whatever you do, don’t have Dan Henderson call out your rankings in our MiddleEasy video — because then that would just be silly.
We caught up with Hollwood Hendo yesterday at one of those official UFC events leading up to UFC 157 and he confirmed what we already suspected — the UFC rankings are meaningless.
