Posts Tagged ‘Rankings’

Man, April was quite the month for the UFC and MMA as a whole, wasn’t it? The Jon Jones hit-and-run. The Rampage Jackson vs. Bellator lawsuits. Major prospect signings in basically every promotion. Phil Davis leaving the UFC for Bellator through free agency. Even surprise pregnancies. It had it all!

Oh, and fights. Lots of those happened as well, with four UFC events, and appearances from Bellator, WSOF and One FC. There were some major shakeups this month across numerous divisions, so let’s jump right in.

You can check out our rules and eligibility requirements here. Here are the special notes for this month:

  • Now-former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is removed from consideration due to the suspension leveled against him by the UFC. While the original rules stipulate that fighters are automatically removed by drug-test suspensions, no such considerations were made regarding suspensions for Code of Conduct violations. Jones will be removed for the time being. When he will be re-added will depend on the length of his suspension, and the total time he spends out of the cage.
  • UFC light heavyweight Rashad Evans has been removed from consideration in the rankings due to inactivity. He last fought in November of 2013, and does not currently have a fight scheduled. He will be considered once again following his return to the cage.
  • UFC bantamweight Michael McDonald and UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett will be removed from consideration next month, unless they are scheduled for a bout before the June edition of the rankings.

Flyweight

Demetrious Johnson toyed with Kyoji Horiguchi before scoring a last-second armbar win at UFC 186. Impressive, lopsided victories are par for the course for Johnson and, despite the setback, Kyoji Horiguchi remains an intriguing prospect. Hopefully his growth as a fighter doesn’t get too stunted by this loss.

Bantamweight

At UFC on Fox 15, Aljamain Sterling thrashed Takeya Mizugaki, effortlessly controlling him with his grappling skills before sealing the deal with an impressive third-round submission. Sterling is a much-needed dose of young, high-level talent in a division that has long been dominated by middling veterans. While he’s likely not ready for a fight with a top-five opponent, he is most certainly somebody to keep an eye on. 

Featherweight

April was big for the featherweight division from beginning to end. At UFC Fight Night 63, Chad Mendes continued cruising through everyone not named Jose Aldo by demolishing Ricardo Lamas. A couple of weeks later, April’s No. 7 featherweight Cub Swanson was absolutely manhandled by the previously No. 10-ranked Max Holloway. 

Those two bouts shook up the rankings in a big way. While no one entered or exited the top-10, things have been thoroughly shuffled.

Lightweight

After a hectic March, the lightweight division calmed down in April. While there were a few interesting bouts with fringe names like Al Iaquinta and Beneil Dariush, the only ranked fighter to compete was Bellator lightweight champ Will Brooks, who took a fairly clear-cut 49-46 decision win. While some were critical of Brooks’ performance, his place in the rankings held steady.

Welterweight

One FC welterweight champ Ben Askren finally returned to the cage…and it wasn’t pretty. Against Brazilian veteran Luis Santos, Askren shot for takedowns for two minutes before an unintentional eyepoke led to a controversial no-contest ending. Reaction to the fight was mixed, with some expressing concern over the former Olympian helplessly flailing for takedowns in vain while others dismissed the fight entirely due to its brevity and quirky ending.

Middleweight

April was huge month for the middleweight division, with four top-10 fighters competing within the month. 

UFC on Fox 15 was responsible for a major shakeup in the top five of the division, with Luke Rockhold beating Lyoto Machida in devastating fashion. The win firmly cements Rockhold as one of the top middleweights in MMA today, and removes any doubts regarding his elite status. For Machida, the lopsided loss (coupled with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza cruising to victory over Chris Camozzi) opens up questions regarding how much longer he can remain in the sport.

Not only that, but Michael Bisping retained his top-10 status with his razor-close win over CB Dollaway at UFC 186. The win did little to inspire confidence in terms of him advancing much further than the No. 10 spot but it showed, at least for now, that he remains one of the best middleweights today.

Light Heavyweight

Yes, Ovince Saint Preux blew away Patrick Cummins at UFC on Fox 15. Yes, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson extended his winning streak to four at the expense of Fabio Maldonado at UFC 186. Yes, Jimi Manuwa stopped the rise of Polish sensation Jan Blachowicz at Fight Night 64.

That said, the greatest shake-up in the rankings didn’t come from actual in-cage action. It came from not one, but two top-five fighters getting bumped from the rankings. Needless to say, plenty has changed over the last month.

Heavyweight

Nothing particularly noteworthy happened in heavyweight MMA in April (with the exception of Mirko Cro Cop returning to the UFC and knocking out Gabriel Gonzaga). There will be some serious shakeups in May, though, with Stipe Miocic vs. Mark Hunt and Travis Browne vs. Andrei Arlovski both in the pipe.

Top-5 Fighters Fighting in May:

  • Stipe Miocic vs. Mark Hunt (UFC Fight Night 65)
  • Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber (UFC Fight Night 66)
  • Anthony Johnson vs. Daniel Cormier (UFC 187)
  • Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort (UFC 187)
  • Donald Cerrone vs. TBD (UFC 187)
  • Travis Browne vs. Andre Arlovski (UFC 187)
  • John Dodson vs. Zach Makovsky (UFC 187)
  • Joseph Benavidez vs. John Moraga (UFC 187)

With his win at UFC 186, Demetrious Johnson became the fifth person in UFC history to record six consecutive title defenses.

Even in a bout where he was a massive favorite, Mighty Mouse found a way to impress. Late in the fifth round, he easily could have coasted to a decision win from the top position, but he instead took a risk and locked up an armbar submission with one second remaining.

As Johnson continues to cement his name in the MMA history books, he’s been solidifying his place among the top pound-for-pound competitors in the sport. Was his win over Kyoji Horiguchi enough to elevate him in the official UFC rankings?

Here is a look at the good calls and bad calls made in the latest official UFC rankings.

At UFC on Fox 15, Luke Rockhold made a statement with a submission win over Lyoto Machida.

In joining light heavyweight champion Jon Jones as the only other fighter to submit The Dragon, Rockhold now has a strong case that he should be next in line to meet the winner of an upcoming middleweight championship bout between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort.

Rockhold lost to Belfort in May 2013. However, he’s developed some marketable bad blood with the Brazilian and still has not had a crack at Weidman. With four straight stoppage wins since his lone UFC defeat against The Phenom, Rockhold is as deserving as any of a title shot.

How much did the win propel Rockhold upward in the middleweight rankings, though? And was it enough to earn the former Strikeforce champion a spot in the pound-for-pound rankings?

With another UFC event in the books, here is a look at the good calls and bad calls made in the latest official UFC rankings.

Gabriel Gonzaga entered UFC Fight Night 64 as a Top 15 UFC heavyweight, but he suffered a third straight loss in his rematch with Mirko Cro Cop. Now, Gonzaga’s contender status has been revoked and there’s even a chance he may have seen his last bout inside the Octagon.

Only three years ago, Cro Cop left the UFC and looked to be done with MMA. However, he went on to win three out of his next four bouts and returned to the Octagon as a headliner on Saturday. With an upset win over Gonzaga, Cro Cop may even have heavyweight title contention on his mind once again.

Was Cro Cop’s win at UFC Fight Night 64 enough to earn him a spot in the Top 15 rankings? Did any other fighters make big moves with their performances over the weekend?

Here are the latest official UFC rankings, per UFC.com, which are voted on by the MMA media.

At UFC Fight Night 63, Chad Mendes bulldozed Ricardo Lamas in the main event.

However, the featured bout on Saturday did not impact the official UFC rankings as much as some of the contests leading up to it did. Namely, wins by Clay Guida and Julianna Pena boosted both fighters in their respective divisions.

Guida controlled Robbie Peralta on the ground en route to a clear decision victory. Meanwhile, Pena took Milana Dudieva to the canvas and earned a stoppage win with some damaging ground-and-pound in the opening stanza.

Where did Guida and Pena end up in the rankings as a result of their wins over the weekend? Here are the latest official UFC rankings, per UFC.com, which are voted on by the MMA media.
