Demarce vs Clarke Rankings

A while ago, we put Clarke in our top 10 over Demarce. Both had long undefeated runs with no wins over 'A' level guys. We debated who should be there and gave it to Clarke as he was still undefeated and had beat Travis Briere.

Since then, Clarke has beaten a 4-5 tough LW named Eddie Rincon who gave Jose Rodriguez, a good Canadian LW, a bunch of problems a while ago.

Demarce has stepped up to face higher level guys, but lost a close split decision (I scored him losing both fights) to both Whitson and Davis.

Who do you rank higher? Demarce because he had the nuts to fight tough dudes and come close to winning or Clarke who had higher level fights fall through but won convincingly (I scored 30-25)against Rincon.

Demarce is high IMO because he's fighting guys who are either close to the UFC or just left. If those 2 fights were actually UFC undercard fights would we be having this discussion? Would you rank Ford above TJ Grant because Ford is 2-1 in his last 3 and TJ is 1-2?

Sherdog has two sets of rankings for Rincon. One for Ed @ 0-2-0 and one for Eddie @ 3-4-0. Regardless I would rank Demarce over Clarke based on their 2010/2011 fights.

Demarce's step in competitionshows he is ready and capable with the last two fights going to split decision.

tough call Keith and again a problem with rankings, the easiest thing to argue in mma and creates good conversations. As just saying said looking at 10/11

 

Demarce beat Bell 5-15 while Clarke beat MacArthur 5-16

Demarce beat Steele 3-1 while CLarke beat Machan 7-4

Demarce beat Blais 7-4 while Clarke beat Rincon 3-4

 

then on top of that Demarce went 1-2 ontop of Clarke losing two split decision.

 

2010-2011

Demarce 4-2

Clarke 3-0

 

Record wise they beat about the same level of competition but Demarce has more fights and stuck it out in some close battles against ex UFC fighters that he gave fits.  I like Clarke a lot but I am going have to give the nod too Demarce in this one oddly after him losing his last 2, either way I think it rest on his next MFC fight.  A win over Washington defiently puts him ahead of Clarke.

Just a note… I was told that Ed Rincon is a different person than the Eddie Rincon that Clarke faced at EFC 8.

Any further info? I see that Sherdog has an Ed and an Eddie… Ed fought at EFC 6 and is marked at 0-1 – wondering if he's the same guy as Eddie (3-5-0, 1 NC) or not?
