    Default Uuuhhhh, Flo rankings defying logic?

    Current Flo rankings at 174:
    1. Chris Perry
    2. Andrew Howe
    3. Matt Brown

    I'm perfectly comfortable with Brown at 3, and I can see the argument for either Perry or Howe at the #1 spot. Fine so far


    Current Flo rankings, Pound-For-Pound
    1. Logan Steiber
    2. Ed Ruth
    3. Dave Taylor
    4. Kendric Maple
    5. Tony Nelson
    6. Andrew Howe
    7. Tony Ramos
    8. Jesse Delgado
    9. Chris Perry
    10. DSJ
    11. Nico Megaludis
    12. Mike McMullan
    13. Matt Brown

    So, I'm curious how Howe jumps Perry in the PFP rankings when Perry is ahead in the ranking at that weight. I think, technically, you divide both by 174...

    That is quite curious. Did vais do both rankings or was it two different people?

    I think he pulls the name out of a hat.
    "He beat nobodies..Thorn at 133 won't be great, R12 or worse imo...
    I just don't see it...David Thorn is not elite. I don't think he'll place"

    Could it imply that Howe's natural or better suited weight is at 165?

    The weight rankings are what people deserve (non speculative), while the pound for pound ranking are based on who VAIS perceives to be the better wrestler. Andrew Howe's performance wasn't exactly convincing but the rankings aren't bad.

    So by this logic what the 174 lb ranking says to me is, as returning champ Perry gets the #1 seed and will continue to be so until someone knocks him off, but Howe is the better wrestling (in Vais' opinion). Which I agree with.
