Frequently Asked Questions

How are UFC fighter rankings determined?

Rankings are voted on by a panel of media members and industry experts who vote for who they feel are the top fighters in the UFC by weight-class and pound-for-pound.

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.

Ranked fighters must have an active status in the UFC.
