    They take Barnett off of the HW ranks due to inactivity and leave Fedor at #1.

    Can anyone conceive of greater stupidity and/or hypocracy?

    http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles.asp?n_id=10708&my_page=2


    1. Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures) (27-1-0, 1 NC)
    After a profile free-agent sweepstakes, "The Last Emperor" and his handlers have opted for MMA's top heavyweight to become the face of M-1 Global. In the much-critiqued first bout of the deal, Emelianenko quickly armbarred South Korean ssireum giant Hong Man Choi (Pictures) on New Year's Eve. What's next for Emelianenko is anyone's guess, but rumors abound of a potential fight with former UFC title contender Pedro Rizzo (Pictures).

    2. Randy Couture (Pictures) (16-8-0)
    Just when it seemed Couture couldn't capture any more headlines in 2007 after his underdog demolitions of Tim Sylvia (Pictures) and Gabriel Gonzaga (Pictures), "The Natural" resigned from the UFC. The Couture-Emelianenko fight now seems but impossible. If anything, Couture's next battle will be a legal one, as he attempts to get out of his contract with Zuffa.

    3. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (Pictures) (30-4-1, 1 NC)
    Nogueira will have only competed once in 2007, taking an unnecessary but almost disastrous third win over Heath Herring (Pictures) in July. Thankfully, with the UFC title picture now up in the air, a bout with former champion Tim Sylvia (Pictures) could be in order for early '08, which is exactly the kind of matchup fans were looking for when this whole UFC-PRIDE thing went down.

    4. Tim Sylvia (Pictures) (24-3-0)
    After his domination at the hands of Randy Couture (Pictures) in March, Sylvia underwent successful back surgery and took apart rising contender Brandon Vera (Pictures) last month. A win over a borderline top-10 heavyweight and the relative stagnancy of the rest of the division sees the former UFC champion rise to the fourth spot in these rankings. With a potential bout against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (Pictures) looming, "The Maine-iac" may be poised to move even further up the list.

    5. Gabriel Gonzaga (Pictures) (8-2-0)
    Gonzaga flirted with championship glory but was brought back to earth against a more experienced foe in Randy Couture (Pictures). The 28-year-old Brazilian will begin his journey to another chance at being champion on Jan. 19, when he looks to avenge his first career loss to countryman Fabricio Werdum (Pictures).

    6. Andrei Arlovski (Pictures) (11-5-0)
    The former UFC champion has one fight left on his deal with Zuffa and won't be seeing action until he re-signs or gets out of the deal. Worse yet, his bargaining power is hampered by his losses to Tim Sylvia (Pictures) and his lackluster effort against Fabricio Werdum (Pictures) in April. The last thing MMA needs is another top heavyweight not competing.

    7. Fabricio Werdum (Pictures) (9-3-1)
    After a dismal UFC debut in April against Andrei Arlovski (Pictures), Werdum will head back to England in January for another tall task in former foe Gabriel Gonzaga (Pictures). Werdum handed "Napao" the first loss of his pro career in September 2003 in their native Brazil, and he will need to replicate his effort to maintain his standing as a top heavyweight.

    8. Cheick Kongo (Pictures) (11-3-1)
    Speaking to the power of a win over a name opponent, Kongo, who is still fairly limited as a mixed martial artist, finds himself ranked after his impressive decision victory on Sept. 8 over Mirko Filipovic (Pictures). The tall, powerful striker is a danger for anyone on the feet, but quality grapplers may still have their way with the Frenchman.

    9. Mirko Filipovic (Pictures) (22-6-2)
    After losing to Kongo, "Cro Cop" is just 1-2 since joining the UFC ranks after winning the 2006 PRIDE Open-Weight Grand Prix. Filipovic needs time off and a serious re-evaluation of his career if he's going to approach top-five status again.

    10. Ben Rothwell (Pictures) (29-5-0)
    With the subtraction of Josh Barnett (Pictures) due to inactivity, Rothwell slides into the tenth spot in the Sherdog.com rankings. While Rothwell is unproven against top competition, the 26-year-old Miletich product is riding a 13-fight winning streak, including wins over former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez (Pictures) and recently crowned IFL champion Roy Nelson (Pictures). With his relationship with the IFL looking a tad rocky, many are calling for Rothwell to take the jump in competition in 2008.

      Oh Heavens! Stop the madness!!!

      Sherk #7 and BJ Penn at #8?

      LIGHTWEIGHT (155-145)

      1. Takanori Gomi (Pictures) (27-3-0, 1 ND)
      While Gomi didn't take part in the New Year's Eve festivities, many watchful eyes caught "The Fireball Kid" ringside at UFC 79. Furthermore, UFC boss Dana White said he's still interested in signing the longtime lightweight king. Here's hoping.

      2. Gesias Calvancante (Pictures) (14-1-1)
      Everybody was hyped for "JZ" to take on Shinya Aoki (Pictures) on New Year's Eve, but apparently the braintrust behind Yarennoka! took everyone for a ride and announced Calvancante was injured. Talk is that Aoki-Calvancante will happen in March, possibly in HERO'S, and hopefully it goes off without a hitch this time. With Melendez's loss to Ishida, Calvancante rises to second from third.

      3. Mitsuhiro Ishida (Pictures) (15-3-1)
      Undersized and predictable as a fighter, many thought Ishida had peaked with a fortuitous win over a streaking Marcus Aurelio. Instead, "The Endless Fighter" marched out to the ring and outwrestled the undefeated and highly regarded Gilbert Melendez (Pictures) to a unanimous decision, earning the biggest win of his career. Like many former PRIDE fighters, what's next for Ishida is uncertain, but hopefully 2008 can see him against some noteworthy competition. With the victory over Melendez, Ishida leaps from seventh to third in the Sherdog.com ranks.

      4. Gilbert Melendez (Pictures) (13-1-0)
      In what looked to be a tough, but winnable contest for Melendez to put another scalp on his résumé, "El Niño" dropped a decision to Mitushiro Ishida in a back-and-forth bout of scrambles. While Melendez has already asked for a rematch, he'll first have to defend his Strikeforce crown against Josh Thomson (Pictures) in March. The loss to Ishida drops Melendez from second to fourth.

      5. Tatsuya Kawajiri (Pictures) (20-4-2)
      After a year away from the ring, Kawajiri looked like the "Crusher" of old as he pounded Brazilian wildman Luiz Azeredo (Pictures) to a dominant unanimous decision on the Yarennoka! card. Here's to seeing more of the former Shooto world champ in 2008. With the victory of his pal Mitsuhiro Ishida (Pictures) over Gilbert Melendez (Pictures), Kawajiri falls from fourth to fifth.

      6. Vitor Ribeiro (Pictures) (19-2)
      "Shaolin" had successful eye surgery in September following his destruction at the hands of Gesias Calvancante (Pictures). For Ribeiro, recovery likely can't come fast enough to allow him to erase the memories of his dreadful performance in the HERO'S semifinal. The rise of Ishida sees Shaolin drop one spot.

      7. Sean Sherk (Pictures) (32-2-1)
      After the tumultuous saga of his CSAC steroids appeal, Sherk's suspension was reduced to six months at his Dec. 4 hearing, and he was subsequently stripped of the UFC lightweight title. While the larger statements that the Sherk trial makes about MMA are up for debate, "The Muscle Shark" will be back in action in the first half of 2008 against the winner of the Joe Stevenson-B.J. Penn (Pictures) clash. Mitsuhiro Ishida (Pictures)'s climb up the ranks drops Sherk from sixth to seventh.

      8. B.J. Penn (Pictures) (11-4-1)
      Six years since he seemed poised to be the fighter to bring the 155-pounders to the masses, the 29-year-old "Prodigy" will take on Joe Stevenson for the UFC lightweight crown Jan. 19 in Newcastle, England. Indications are that the winner will face Sean Sherk (Pictures) later in the year. That's a schedule fans can get behind.

      9. Joe Stevenson (28-7-0)
      Riding a four-fight winning streak since returning to the lightweight class, Stevenson is now faced with the largest task of his career: B.J. Penn (Pictures) for the UFC's 155-pound championship. Should he emerge victorious, Sean Sherk (Pictures) is likely on the horizon. Needless to say, things are fixing to pick up for "Joe Daddy."

      10. Frank Edgar (Pictures) (8-0-0)
      One of the most pleasant surprises of 2007, Edgar burst onto the scene in February with his instant classic and fight-of-the-year candidate against then-undefeated Tyson Griffin. In continuing an undefeated streak against solid competition, Edgar dominated well-regarded Miletich product Spencer Fisher (Pictures) from bell to bell in front of a hometown New Jersey crowd.

                  The latest MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, January 16. This system ranks the top ten MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the six largest weight classes, as voted on by MMAWeekly.

                  We take into consideration a fighter's performance in addition to his win-loss record, head-to-head and common opponents, difficulty of opponents, and numerous other factors in what is the most comprehensive rankings system in the sport.

                  As always, fighters who are currently serving drug-related suspensions are not eligible for top ten consideration until they have fought one time after the completion of their suspension.

                  Fighters must also have competed within the past 12 months in order to be eligible for top ten consideration.

                  Here are the current MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings, which are up-to-date as of January 16.

                        Of special note, Kazuo Misaki's recent victory over Yoshihiro Akiyama has been ruled a no contest. As a matter of policy, that fight is no longer considered as a factor in the rankings. The middleweight rankings have been altered to reflect the fight being ruled a no contest instead of a victory for Misaki.

                          The latest MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, January 30. This system ranks the top ten MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the six largest weight classes, as voted on by MMAWeekly.

                          We take into consideration a fighter's performance in addition to his win-loss record, head-to-head and common opponents, difficulty of opponents, and numerous other factors in what is the most comprehensive rankings system in the sport.

                          As always, fighters who are currently serving drug-related suspensions are not eligible for top ten consideration until they have fought one time after the completion of their suspension.

                          Fighters must also have competed within the past 12 months in order to be eligible for top ten consideration.

                          Here are the current MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings, which are up-to-date as of January 30.
