UFC Rankings Report/MMABetz Rankings Report

1238

Below I have listed the UFC Rankings on the left side, and our MMABetz Rankings on the right side. Of course, TJ Dillashaw will not be in the bantamweight, or pound-for-pound rankings, and I also discluded anyone that’s changing weight classes: Luke Rockhold, Daniel Cormier, Kevin Lee etc. Louis Smolka spent his last two fights at bantamweight rather than flyweight, however I was forced to keep him in the flyweight rankings considering there’s only 16 flyweights signed to the UFC.

I didn’t realize how shallow the UFC made the 125 lb division, guys like Dustin Ortiz, John Moraga, Justin Scoggins, Jose Torres, Matheus Nicolau, Brandon Moreno, Jarred Brooks, Ben Nguyen, Ulka Sasaki, and Demetrious Johnson were released, let alone other top guys like Louis Smolka, Ray Borg, Sergio Pettis, and others moved up to 135 lbs. The flyweight division hasn’t been weak in quite awhile, and there are still some great fighters there, but was releasing all of them really the best idea? I don’t think it was, and I hated the idea from the start. Oh well I guess, I don’t make the choices for the UFC. Continue reading below to see the top 16 of each weight class:
