Last but not least… the highly contentious pound-for-pound rankings.

To clear up any confusion, these are not anyone’s personal rankings. They are compiled rankings from our staff and do not mirror any one member’s list. Our rankings are heavily based on the fighters’ more recent performances, the strength of their competition and the relevancy of those fights.

As always, our rankings can easily be referenced on our dedicated rankings page.
