The MMAWeekly.com rankings list the Top 10 MMA fighters from around the world in each of the most widely accepted weight classes, as well as a Top 10 mixed pound-for-pound list ranking the best male and female fighters.
The Women’s Flyweight MMA Top 10 Rankings is expected to see a lot of flux as it continues to evolve. While the UFC’s first women’s flyweight champion, Nicco Montano, was stripped of the title when she was unable to defend it against Valentina Shevchenko, that belt will now be on the line at UFC 231 in Toronto. Shevchenko will face former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the belt that Montano never lost in the cage.
Taken into consideration are a fighter’s performance in addition to 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. The divisional rankings put a particular emphasis on recent results, while a fighter’s career, particularly if he or she has fought in multiple weight classes, adds considerable weight to the pound-for-pound ranking.
Fighters who are currently serving a drug-related suspension are not eligible for MMA Top 10 Rankings consideration until they have fought one time after the completion of said suspension.
Though we don’t have a strict timeline for fighters to compete, an athlete’s inactivity can also have an effect upon his or her MMA Top 10 Rankings consideration.
