Jussier Formiga Doesn’t Put Much Into The UFC Rankings
Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.14.2014

- Jussier Formiga recently spoke about UFC rankings, fighting Zach Makovsky and more. Here are the highlights…

On The UFC's Rankings: "I don't give rankings that much importance. If they were followed that closely, Cariaso wouldn't be fighting for the belt. But at the same time, Cariaso is a warrior, coming off three straight wins. And that's why he's deserving. I hope he has a great fight against Demetrious Johnson. "But in my opinion, rankings are only good so you know who's in the top 10. They're not very useful otherwise."

On Fighting Zach Makovsky: "He's a respected name, coming off two victories," he said. "For me, that's what's missing – starting a win streak so I face someone in the top five."

On The Value of Fighting Outside The UFC: "I think many people don't recognize the value of fighters outside the UFC," he said. "Before I joined the UFC myself, I fought for Tachi Palace Fights. It's where the world's best flyweights came from. I was in that promotion with fighters such as Ian McCall, Ulysses Gomez and Dustin Ortiz."

More on Zach Makovsky: "I wouldn't take anything away from Zach Makovsky," Formiga said. "He consistently beat larger opponents and even faced my training partner, Eduardo Dantas. He's very skilled. He strikes well and has great wrestling. I'm not sure how his ground skills are, but he seems very complete. He's a respected name."
