The Web Archive DID come through for me, so I updated the 2/25 rankings (The W) (which I mislabeled as "2/24") if you still care about that.

Unlike last time, most everybody ranked 10 or 11 women this time. (Many may have simply cut and pasted the rankings from last week, but a vote's a vote!) Thankfully, enough folks found an eleventh women so we now have a full slate in that class.

Following UFC 158, here are the latest rankings for all ten UFC weight classes:

I agree with every single thing you said but this. I'm not a Lesnar fanboy, but I don't think Cain can have any success against Brock once it goes to the floor.
