MMA Planet’s Middleweight Rankings

Anderson is the clear cut best, but he will have a tough test in Chael Sonnen in August. Vitor Belfort is waiting in the wings as well. Jake Shields is ranked here because he deserves to be a ranked middlweight. Shields boasts wins over Dan Henderson, Robbie Lawler, Jason Miller and Yushin Okami. In July Yoshirhiro Akiyama and Wanderlei Silva will battle for top ten positioning. Bisping bounced back with a nice win over Dan Miller at UFC 114. I really believe that the top 9 guys in this division has separated themselves from their peers.
