  1. 2 FLY LEVI

    Loving the rankings..ya’ll keep an on on chris lopez he’s gonna be number 1 lightweight soon.

  2. 2 FLY LEVI

    out* not an

  3. Gerzan chaw

    I guess I’m retired

    • I gave you a thumbs down because you need to get your ass back in there!

    • Drew Ratichek

      gerzan Chaw is a sucker and chump. Hes no good and i hate watching him fight. Im glad he finally retired!! hahaha Gerzan…no but seriously..When IS your next fight?

      On a side note i noticed that JDF and I have “lost a little ground” in the HW division…thats a shame. We were poised for greatness at #1 and #2 back in the day.. 🙂 Is it ok that i use my ammy belt as a sling for a piece of workout equipment?

      Taylor Hebert deserves to be #2 quite easily in my mind. Of course people will say im biased and im sure the panel is considering the fact that Rakim lasted longer than Taylor did but as always ther were mitagating factors. Derrick is better each fight that he has…Taylor really and truly shouldn’t have fougth due to a serious injury and was totally faking the funk that night lol. (no disrespect to Derrick as taylor says no doubt derrick is number 1) All good things in time. I can’t wait to see taylor back at it though. The guys an animal.

      an idea i had: Eric schambari vs bubba bush…i think this is an interesting match up but i see bubba winning it. I think Bubba “foot breaker” bush will dominate the grappling and beat eric at his own game. anyone else intrigued to see this?

      Also I know that ive been out for a while and looked like crap but i see some guys at HW and LHW that id like to get at start of next year. See how i can do injury free and get back in there. Id like to try and slide on the rankings. Maybe Gerzan Chaw will come out of retirement to fight me??

  4. Andy J S

    congrats fellas …. i need to turn my light on…

  5. Beanie Campbell

    Great rankings!!! I agree about Chris Lopez…dude has SKILLS!!!!

  6. Ricardo Daniel Delgado

    I need to get on those rankings.

  7. Joe Trevino 4OZ

    Sweet, thanks for making me part of the list!! Houston has some really great talent!!

  8. Gerzan chaw

    I want to fight. If drew can make 170, ill make a come back haha

    • Drew Ratichek

      Gerzan would beat me like a rented mule at 170….lol. I’ve only got about 1/5 of his heart. Honestly gerzan, I have a dream to have a fight like you and Cody Williams did. Seriously.

  9. Buda

    The last time Drew was associated with the #170 was at a wing eating contest. On a side note, when are we gonna see a pound for pound female ranking?

  10. The Bison

    I need a fight. I was ranked at one time. Seems like so long ago.

  11. machado

    I see that there is a spot open., on the heavyweight division …I started my diet ,ihop when I wake up, big mac for lunch, taco bell for diner……and jack& box just bcuz. I CAN………..( no more 170 ) c u next quarter. Breaking the scales………..I would complain about the 170er..but damn that is a stacked division everyone is good on it

  12. Tom "Tommy Gun" Galdenzi

    I agree with Levi , chris lopez will being number 1 soon..Chris is well rounded and huge for 155.

    My boy Kyle Simpson number 3 pro heavy weight ..To bad he just dropped down to 205 in his last fight and will be staying at 205..Watch out!
