Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings

The latest MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings were released on Wednesday, August 8. This system ranks the top ten MMA fighters from all across the world in each of the six biggest weight classes, as voted on by MMAWeekly.


This week, the Featherweight fighters make their debut as part of the MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings.  The Featherweights are classified as athletes that compete at a weight of 145 pounds or less.


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.


Here are the current MMAWeekly World MMA Rankings, which are up-to-date as of August 8.
