I thought this was pretty cool just happened to see this on Sherdog.
All the rankings below are from Sherdog and MMA Weekly from 00-02

Sherdog.com April, 2000

Here it is....Updated April 25, 2000
Heavyweights.....
Not a whole lot of movement in the Heavyweights! Randleman Rizzo did not take place! Pride GP getting ready to go! Also the return of Ken shamrock. I believe Mark Kerr will be back in number one after tournament! But I'm giving Igor some respect. Hopefully he comes in in shape. Josh Barnett has been very impressive!!!
Middleweights.....
Frank Shamrock was removed because he will not be fighting for a while! Tito beats my number one Silva! But Silva will be back he is only 22 years old. Royce is back and we be fighting Sak!
Lightweights.....
Pele is still my number one and will fight Menne. Also Jens is getting better and better!

Good find.
