How are rankings determined?

Rankings were generated by a voting panel made up of media members. The media members were asked to vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound. A fighter is only eligible to be voted on if they are in active status in the UFC.

A fighter can appear in more than one weight division at a time. The champion and interim champion are considered to be in the top positions of their respective divisions and therefore are not eligible for voting by weight-class. However, the champions can be voted on for the pound-for-pound rankings.

The rankings panel is comprised of media members from the following outlets:
MMA Oddsbreaker, CFMU 93.3,, FightNews, Fight Network, Gazeta Esportiva, Cherokee Scout, Burbank Leader, MMA Weekly, KIOZ 105.3,, Wrestling Observer, Top Turtle Podcast, MMA Fight Coverage, BoxeoMundial,, MMA Soldier, MMA NYTT, Blood & Sweat, Inside Fighting Radio
