    The only problem I have is where Edgar ranks, but I guess that's something a lot of people debate. Personally I judge Edgar's ranking on the performance against Aldo - I believe he should have got the nod but he undoubtedly won 2 rounds at the very least. Whereas Chad Mendes and Cub Swanson both got knocked out by Aldo in the first round in their respective bouts.
    Does that not prove that Edgar should rank higher? Or should it be based on beating other guys? It's tough to call. For me Edgar should come second because he's proven himself against the best 145lb fighter in the world whereas Swanson and Mendes haven't beat anyone significant of late (perhaps Poirier though this was short notice).
    In the UFC's official rankings Edgar is 10th P4P but about 4th/5th at FW, where's the sense in that? Haha. He can't be below Mendes, Lamas... at FW but above them P4P.

    EDIT: There's no way Lamas can be below Swanson - Lamas destroyed Swanson just over a year ago. Lamas should be at least 4th.
    This is one of the reasons that I don't agree with P4P rankings, like you say if he is ranked above fellow FWs in P4P then he should be above them in FW ranking aswell

    Since the Lamas loss Swanson has beaten 4 top guys convincingly, 3 by KO. But yes, Lamas has also beaten Koch and Hioki.........all backs up my earlier statement, 145 is a fucking deep division just now!
    Exactly mate, that's what makes MMA rankings so subjective. Even the UFC themselves don't get them spot on.

    Re: Lamas, I think the fact he beat Hioki and Koch who were arguably both #2 at the end on top of beating Swanson previously means he should be higher up. Once again, an argument can be made against it as Swanson has beaten Oliveira, Pearson and Poirier but the fact remains that Lamas was the better fighter in their fight.

    145lbs is the most exciting division out there for me.

    Me too, love the 145'rs just now.....it didn't need Pettis, but that just made the division even deeper!

    The problem with ranking Frankie Edgar higher than he is, is he has not won a fight at 145.....I don't believe he beat Aldo. I think Edgar is a very soft ranking, meaning 1 win in the division catipults him to 2 or 3.
