At MiddleEasy, we think rankings are elitist and irrelevant because they’re based solely on opinions instead of tangible accomplishments. The only such ranking system that matters in the world of MMA is our list of Frate Tranes conveniently located along the right side of this page. If you look at that list, you’ll notice that Mark Hunt, exercising his frate-tranedge for the rest of the world to admire. I might add that he has the best seat in the house (or on the list) because it’s next to Ronda Rousey. We’d advance him up the list based on his accomplishments at UFC 144 this past weekend, why anyone would want to trade seats with someone who isn’t sitting next to Ronda Rousey is silly, so he’ll remain where he is. While Fedor was undoubtedly the greatest heavyweight of the past decade, websites around the world now have Mark Hunt ranked higher than the Last Emperor. Luckily, Fedor doesn’t care. Fedor’s only prerogative is to dominate the Russian Sambo circuits until a suitable MMA opponent signs a contract to fight him this summer.
Rumors that M-1 Global have contacted Todd Duffee are floating around the metaphysical galaxy, but no official opponents have been named.
