We’re trying something a little new here at MMA Convert… rankings!

We’re kicking it off with the little guys today and we’ll continue to roll out the rest of the weight classes and the pound-for-pound list as the week progresses. Feel free to tell us what an awesome job we have (or haven’t) done below.

Our rankings will also be kept and updated monthly on our dedicated rankings page.
