GIl is suspended until June, so that's the only reason I didn't add him. I would put him at four or five if he could fight though.

Hmm, that does bring up a dilemma. His last fight was in June of 2015, but I was operating under the impression that fighters that haven't fought for a year or more are ineligible, rather than fighters that will hit 1 year before their next fight due to suspension....

I didn't add Lombard to the list of MWs, though, for the same reason. His last fight was on Jan. 3, 2015, so that's damn close to a year.

What's our policy on that, y'all? Rank the suspended fighters, yay or nay?

Yeah I say rank them until the 1 year ineligibility hits. You also never know if a suspension gets overturned or reduced.

So, you know, Dana White wants to say something? Let’s see him get in there and fight. Let’s see him fight somebody who’s a championship fighter and let’s see how many punches he throws in a round. Things change when you’re fighting the best guys in the world.
