October 2012 MMA Rankings: The 10 Best in Each Division
Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

It's a brand-new day, which means a brand-new set of mixed martial arts rankings for your personal enjoyment/hatred. 

Since USA Today is no longer doing their consensus MMA rankings, I decided it was time to start fresh with these rankings, and instead of going off September's rankings, as I normally would, I created them from scratch. 

Now, I realize that's not going to stop a large percentage of you from hating the rankings in the following slides, because that's just what rankings are: an inspiration for online commenters everywhere to bash the author. 

After all, if you disagree with my rankings, then my rankings must be wrong. Or something.

One thing I'm maintaining from the USA Today rankings system: the caveat that fighters who spend more than a year on the shelf are not eligible to be ranked. Yes, that means Georges St-Pierre is not included in my welterweight rankings, but he'll be right back in there next month after he faces Carlos Condit at UFC 154. 

With that out of the way, let's get started.
