New Top 10
The new MMA Top 10 Fighters and Broadcasters Poll is out with new weight divisions for new fighters. Dan Henderson and Murilo Bustamante have moved from the 205 Light Heavyweight to the 185 division. It’s ironic that both fighters will fight for the Pride Championship to see who the best is at 185 in Pride.

Mach Sakurai debuts at #2 in the 155 pound weight class as he gets set to face Takanori Gomi on New Year’s Eve. Without further ado, here is the latest Fighters and Broadcaster Rankings exclusively from MMAWeekly.com.
