MMAWeekly Rankings

The latest MMAWeekly Rankings were released on Tuesday, March 20th.  This system ranks the top ten MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the five major weight classes, as voted on by the MMAWeekly staff. 

The MMAWeekly Rankings are your #1 source for the most up-to-date and complete fighter rankings.  The next update of the MMAWeekly Rankings will be published on Tuesday, April 3rd, which is two weeks from now.

Please note that Dan Henderson is eligible for top ten consideration in two separate weight classes, specifically due to the fact that he holds a major promotion’s championship titles in two separate weight classes.
