Fighter RankingsAs last year ended we promised that we would be adding Women’s rankings to the monthly updates of the MMA Fighter Rankings and we are very pleased to finally bring them to you. Along with the top five fighter rankings in the Men’s Flyweight – Heavyweight divisions you can now get the Women’s top five from the Atomweight – Featherweight divisions.

Besides the addition of the Women’s fighter rankings, there were only two noticeable* changes that occurred this month. In the heavyweight division, Stipe Miocic moved into the #5 spot now that Daniel Cormier is moving down to light heavyweight. The other change happened in the flyweight division as John Moraga replaced John Lineker, who lost at this past weekends UFC 169. (* = Benson Henderson dropped to #4 in the lightweight division despite winning at UFC on FOX 10)

As always the goal here is to give you the best Rankings that we can provide you with and of course a spot below for you to disagree and complain. So without further ado here is the latest MMA fighter Rankings:

About the Author ()

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
