Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Flyweight 34 2 3 (22)
Last Year s Ranking: 27
Status Report: We predicted in this analysis last year that Naito would suffer a drop and for once we were right. (No, we re not psychic; the guy s 36 years old.) His loss to Koki Kameda (L 12) was a huge blow to his standing, and a win over journeyman Liempetch Sor Veeraphol (KO 5) at junior bantam wasn t going to help much.
Future: He d love a rematch with Kameda, but he shouldn t count on it. Kameda has bigger fish to fry.
