Regardless of all of that, Mir has lost twice since then and wasn't in the top 10 when he beat Bigfoot.  In fact, he was coming in off 4 losses in a row.  The Bigfoot fight was in 2015 and Mir's last win before that was in 2011 lol.  1 win, over a guy who shouldn't even be in the top 10, followed by multiple losses and a failed drug test, doesn't make one a top 10 fighter.

You are free to make all the excuses you like, and if Mir is released he can certainly work to earn a top 10 spot, but there is no way he deserves one now.  One has to actually win some fights first, which he hasn't been doing.

Bigfoot earned his rank by beating The Reem. His losses were to Valesqiez, Hunt, and Arlovski; losing to those guys does not push you from the top 10.

My last response to you on this since you don't deal with what was said, I will repeat:

"Regardless of all of that, Mir has lost twice since then and wasn't in the top 10 when he beat Bigfoot. In fact, he was coming in off 4 losses in a row. The Bigfoot fight was in 2015 and Mir's last win before that was in 2011 lol. 1 win, over a guy who shouldn't even be in the top 10, followed by multiple losses and a failed drug test, doesn't make one a top 10 fighter.

Even granting Bigfoot that #7 spot, Mir still wouldn't be in the top 10 based off only that with all of his losses before and since.

^^^^Ummm yes, yes he would. Beating the #7 should jolt you to the top 10. His rank has degraded since than due to losses but not by much since he has only lost to top dogs (he is now #11).

With that win and then those losses he may be around top 11 or so.

I'd like to see those and many more.  A number of real good matches for him but those are at or near the top.
