Previous Ranking

Ranking Change
MMA P4P #1
Fedor Emelianenko
Simply the greatest fighter in the history of the sport

MMA P4P #2
Anderson Silva
The most dominant figher in all of UFC. Silva will battle Thales Leites in April at UFC 97.

MMA P4P #3
Georges St. Pierre
The most athletic fighter in all of MMA, GSP continues his domination of the 170 pound class. Is Thiago Alves next?

MMA P4P #4
Lyoto Machida
Owns a resume second to none and no fighter as of yet can get to him. Deserved a title shot long ago, now maybe he will get one.

MMA P4P #5
Miguel Torres
An incredibly talented athlete. He works on all skills and is equally competent in each discipline. Torres should consider moving up to 155 pounds and compete in UFC.

MMA P4P #6
Rashad Evans
Rashad earned his jump into the top ten with impressive wins over The Iceman and Forrest Griffin. An undefeated champion with room to improve. Evans vs Machida would be a great matchup.

MMA P4P #7
B.J. Penn
"The Prodigy" is skilled in all disciplines of MMA. Despite the loss to GSP, Penn is still the 155 pound champion and one of the best in the sport. Florian vs Penn should be next.

MMA P4P #8
Forrest Griffin
Despite the loss to Evans, Forrest still ranks as one of the top Light Heavyweights in the world. He will be back.

MMA P4P #9
Rampage Jackson
A very impressive win over the Axe Murderer, Rampage should have been the next challenger for Rashad Evans; inexplicably, Jackson will fight Jardine in Columbus, Ohio @ UFC 96.

MMA P4P #10
Dan Henderson
Henderson has accomplished almost everything in the sport of MMA. The only thing left is a UFC title. Henderson defeated Rich Franklin at 205 and as a reward moves down to 185lbs to coach in TUF and face Michael Bisping. A head scratcher indeed...
