A lot has happened in the last five weeks, when we last published our MMA rankings. Most notably, a man that many considered in their top 3 pound-for-pound list, Renan Barao, suffered his first loss in 32 fights after one of the most impressive performances of the year put in by the new bantamweight kingpin TJ Dillashaw.
Meanwhile, Jon Jones defended his light heavyweight title, Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler put in incredible performances to set up an August main event match-up and Daniel Cormier put on a clinic against Dan Henderson. There were also breakthrough performances from the likes of Gegard Mousasi, Anthony Johnson and Luke Rockhold, who each went from around the top 10 to instant contenders with impressive performances in their last respective bouts.
So, without further ado, here are the Cage Pages’ staff consensus MMA rankings for June 2014. Each of us have ranked our top 10 at flyweight, women’s bantamweight, bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight, welterweight, middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, reaching a conclusion on who should be where in each division. All MMA promotions and their fighters have been considered.
