UFC 137 despite losing out on two of the best possible welterweight match ups available still features one of the best and most interesting fights possible as #5 Nick Diaz and #8 B.J. Penn headline the pay per view.
UFC 138's most relevant welterweight is #11 Thiago Alves welcoming undefeated Papy Abedi to the UFC.
UFC 139 will feature the very underrated fight of #9 Rick Story vs. #14 Martin Kampmann in a fight that on paper at least looks to be excellent.
Based on the premise that all MMA rankings are subjective but that it’s still useful and informative to know who the online MMA community as a whole ranks as the best fighters in MMA, we collect and average the rankings of the top MMA websites to produce our consensus rankings. We compile the top MMA rankings from each of our sources and award 25 points for a first place ranking, 16 for a 10th place ranking, 1 for a 25th place ranking. A formula is used to "normalize" the data so all fighters are awarded points from those lists that do not include a full 25 fighters. This formula ensures that each ranking site awards the same number of total points regardless of how many fighters they choose to rank. Each fighter’s total is divided by the number of possible points to determine their standing in the Consensus Rankings.
