Now sure Nog took a (uneventful) decision from Rashad, but over their past few fights, both beat Tito, Rashad went to a decision with Jones (and looked better than most against him), lost to Machida, and beat Thiago Silva, Rampage, and Phil Davis. Nog lost to Davis, and lost to Bader, then barely beat Brilz, beat Cane, and took a decision from Rashad. The weight of Nog beating Rashad doesn't outweigh Rashad's far superior resume. Not to mention Rashad would be the favorite in a rematch, which also factors into the ranking IMO.
I'm with you. The better fighter should be ranked above. Upsets happen.
