    I like 1-6 of the Cagetoday rankings. But I wouldn't put Tyson Griffin, Noguiera, and Sherk in my top ten. But since Sherk tested clean I would wait to see how he does against Penn.

    ESPN has Ramp at 2 about GSP, I don't agree with that. The have BJ Penn at #9, thats just crazy.

    i think bj should be number 2 because its pound for pound and he's faught in tons of weight classes and been champion in 2… gsp shouldnt be ranked that high until he fights a few people who are actually bigger than him. tyson griffin and sherk shouldnt even be in the top ten
