Unofficial UFC Rankings: April 2010
Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images

Notes:

  • The UFC does not have an officially recognized ranking system, therefore the rankings listed below are debatable and subject to opinion.
  • The fighter records indicated includes all MMA fights, UFC and other organizations combined.
  • While all wins and losses are included in records, only UFC fights are counted in win streaks and only recent and relevant wins and losses are listed.
  • The No. 1 ranked fighter in each weight class represents the current champion.
  • Fighters who compete in multiple weight classes are only ranked under the weight class they are listed under on UFC.com.

 

I take the following criteria into consideration when determining rank:

  • UFC win-loss record
  • Wins over higher ranked opponents
  • Losses to lower ranked opponents
  • Consecutive fights won since last loss
  • Average consecutive fights won between losses
  • Fighter popularity (I.E Brock Lesnar getting a title shot early in his UFC career, because of his super-stardom)
  • Fighter performance in last fight
