MMA Top 10 World RankingsThe latest MMAWeekly.com World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, December 15. This system ranks the Top 10 MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the seven 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 unless they have a bout scheduled within a reasonable time frame.

    Bellator needs to do a better job of marketing Hector Lombard, that guy us a beast. Good to see him get some recognition in the rankings.

    BJ only just won his first fight back at Welterweight – he got his ass handed to him in his last two lightweight fights, remember? And he beat a Hall of Famer, not a young whipper-snapper like what beat him for his belt. So that’s probably why he’s not ranked.
    I did notice one typo, though, under the Featherweights… some joker’s gone and put Manny Gamburian in at Number 2!! Hahahahaha, that’s hilarious! Manny in a top 10 list… funny stuff!
