MMA Fighter Rankings

Cage Pages has ranked fighters across the UFC. The rankings follow the UFC‘s weight classes, spanning from women’s strawweight to heavyweight and including Pound for Pound ranks.

The system used to accumulate the UFC fighter rankings was a simple 1-to-10 scoring system. If a writer ranked a fighter at #1, they received 10 points, while the 10th-ranked fighter would receive one point as voted on by the Cage Pages Rankings Panel.
