MMA Weekly World Rankings Updated (Post UFC 88)

Quote:
The latest MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, September 10. This system ranks the Top 10 MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the six most widely accepted weight classes.

Taken into consideration are a fighter's performance in addition to his win-loss record, head-to-head and common opponents, difficulty of opponents, and numerous other factors in what is the most comprehensive rankings system in the sport.

Fighters who are currently serving drug-related suspensions are not eligible for Top 10 consideration until they have fought one time after the completion of their suspension.

Fighters must also have competed within the past 12 months in order to be eligible for Top 10 consideration. It has been more than 12 months since Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion Randy Couture has competed. He is subsequently ineligible until such time as he returns to competition.

Also of note, Rich Franklin recently moved to the 205-pound division and is now eligible for consideration in that division.
