Following his dominating performance against then #1 Mauricio Rua at UFC 128, #1 Jon Jones will now prepare to defend the UFC Light Heavyweight belt against his teammate #3 Rashad Evans.
#8 Dan Henderson proved against #13 Rafael Cavalcante that he is the best light heavyweight not on the UFC's roster.
#11 Phil Davis is still a hot prospect after taking a clear unanimous decision victory over #10 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, but his performance put to rest any talk of his being the man to dethrone Jon Jones any time soon.
UFC 129 will feature #5 Lyoto Machida vs. #16 Randy Couture as well as the slightly less eagerly anticipated #21 Jason Brilz vs. #22 Vladimir Matyushenko.
#4 Quinton Jackson, the man Silva would have fought at UFC 130, is instead scheduled to fight #17 Matt Hamill that night.
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.
