The Official UFC Ranks
 
The Official UFC Ranks
http://www.ufc.com/rankings

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC and a fighter can only appear in one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

Meh. Subject to debate, I'm sure.

Having a P4P list is kind of silly. Too hypothetical, argumentative, and debatable to have a defined 'list'.

Absolutely, these rankings are a joke IMO.

Didn't think they were too bad. Seem to have gotten to important ones right. Though not sure about Frankie being that low.

I think most of the right names are there. But I'd argue some of the placements. Nothing overly appalling however.

Stun Gun 02-04-2013 09:25 PM

The lists are okay for certain weight classes, but some are off

LL 02-04-2013 09:27 PM

Outside of Carwin, those really aren't that bad.

Id have Mir at #4, Carwin as inactive with Hunt at #10.

Little Nog shouldn't be top five, I wouldn't even rank him above Rashad after that fight. I would go Henderson/Gustaf/Machida/Tex/Davis/Evans/Bader/Nog/Mousassi.

Anderson Silva

1 Chris Weidman
2 Vitor Belfort

4 Yushin Okami

6 Constantinos Philippou

9 Alan Belcher

It should go #1. Weidman, #2 Belfort #3 Rockhold 4# Lombard 5# Jacare and then Bisping/Okami/Munoz etc

3 Nick Diaz
4 Rory MacDonald
5 Demian Maia
6 Jake Ellenberger
7 Martin Kampmann
8 Josh Koscheck
9 Jon Fitch
10 Tarec Saffiedine
Koscheck loses to GSP and a close split decision to Hendricks he should be ahead of Ellenberger and Kampmann.

Quote:

Benson Henderson

1 Gilbert Melendez
2 Anthony Pettis
3 Gray Maynard
4 Nate Diaz
5 Jim Miller
6 Donald Cerrone
7 TJ Grant
8 Rafael dos Anjos
9 Joe Lauzon
10 Khabib Nurmagomedov
I'd have Lauzon and Khabib at #6 and #7

The list with the worst order is #205 the list with the worst omission in #185 as you could make a very good case for Jacare in the top five.

It's legit enough imo. I'd switch a few people around though. I don't see how edgar isn't #1 after a performance like that. But its not too shabby.

There truly is no need or purpose for a p4p list though. Its clear that Anderson is #1, but the rest of the list is too arguable to be set in stone.

This is what I was thinking. Not that exciting. Run of the mill list really.

Don't see how anyone can even consider Carwin relevant at this stage. The man is done. I guess they didn't consider Barnett part of the UFC.
