B/R Official Rankings for August: The Top 10 Lightweights in MMA

At UFC 150, Frankie Edgar will attempt to regain his lightweight title from Benson Henderson in a highly anticipated rematch. While Henderson took a unanimous decision in his previous meeting with the former champion, many felt Edgar was owed an immediate rematch after having to grant the same to B.J. Penn and Gray Maynard during his reign as lightweight king.

The fight with Henderson will provide Edgar an opportunity to prove he's still the best 155-pound fighter in the world. However, a loss could finally force Edgar to the featherweight division to grant the wishes of the UFC brass for the undersized lightweight.

No matter the outcome, the UFC 150 main event will have a major impact on the landscape of the lightweight division, so let's take a look at how the top-10 155-pound fighters stack up heading into the pivotal event.


These rankings are the combined efforts of some of Bleacher Report MMA's best writers, as we continue to try and provide you with the best content on the web.
