MMA Rankings

UPDATED JULY 4th, 2010

DISCLAIMER: These and all rankings you see are entirely non-scientific, barely sensible tomfoolery. I do them simply for fun, and I honestly don’t think anybody else should view or use them as anything else. It’s fun to compile them and debate them, but that’s where it should end. In other words, MMA Rankings are conversation starters, not argument enders.
