WEC Rankings lite. Consider yourself warned. These rankings do a good job of predicting who will be the next to get a title shot, but they do a horrible job of declaring contenders #5-10. The reason for this is simple, the organization lacks depth in some divisions. That will change soon enough. Don’t let that keep you from commenting, your input will only make these rankings better!             -Fightstalker
