FGP RANKINGS: Post-WEC Featherweights

Well shit. My #1 and #3 fighters just went at it for 2.95 rounds, and Tamura succumbed to a head-and-arm choke with 15 seconds or so to go. While it will take smarter men than me to determine if Waggney's just that good or Akitoshi's overrated, i gotta say I loved Waggney's determination in that fight to keep it exactly where he wanted it, and the finish was grueling.
I decided that MTB's win over Urijah Faber earns him my top spot. I did a little more reading on Hioki, the guy who kind of defaulted his way to my #1 spot, and I can't justify putting him at the top. Waggney definitely earned himself a shot in my book.
