What a difference 10 months makes.
The 25 fighters on this list started 2012 as the top-ranked guys in the sport. Between all the events, injuries, controversies and whatnot, a lot of them won't end the year in nearly the same place as they began.
We wanted to see whose stock has risen and fallen this year, so we revisited Bleacher Report's official Top 25 fighter rankings released Jan. 1. Then we broke out the most recent rankings and a few other comparison points. If you're like me, the fact that some of these guys were considered top-25 fighters in January will elicit come chuckles. Things change fast.
This list ranks the top 25 fighters as of Jan. 1. Their rankings as of the most recent list are noted in each slide, although it wasn't the only factor that goes into the stock movement.
So how did your faves fare? Did they lose, gain or simply maintain? Read on.
