MMA Rankings: Midsummer Edition (Divisional and Pound-for-Pound)

Huge shake-ups in the Heavyweight division have taken place this summer. Werdum's and Lesnar's submission victories have turned the division upside down and created interesting rankings problems.

There was also quite a bit of action in June that involved unranked fighters moving up into the Top 15 in their weight-classes, but not many ranked fighters facing each other.

There is going to be plenty of debating about rankings in the next few weeks, and my own rankings are based on the idea of a reflection of current, relevant accomplishments at this moment, not giving too much weight to past success or future potential.

There is a bit of dead period in July, in which the only notable card is Dream 15 on July 10th. This is just the quiet before an outstanding August, which is full of UFC, WEC and possibly Strikeforce cards.
