- MMAWEEKLY WORLD MMA RANKINGS UPDATED

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings

The latest MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, September 12. This system ranks the top ten MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the six largest weight classes, as voted on by MMAWeekly.


We take into consideration 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.


As always, fighters who are currently serving drug-related suspensions are not eligible for top ten consideration.


A fighter must also have fought within the past 12 months in a weight class in order to be eligible for consideration.  As such, Dan Henderson – who has not fought in the middleweight division since his loss to Kazuo Misaki on August 26, 2006 – is not currently eligible for consideration in the middleweight rankings.


Here are the current MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings, which are up-to-date as of September 12.
