Esther Lin of MMA Fighting

Check out the new SB Nation MMA Rankings format, starting off with the heavyweight division.

Welcome to the debut of the new version of SB Nation's MMA rankings. From now on, our rankings will incorporate the three SB Nation brands: Bloody Elbow, MMA Fighting, and MMA Mania. Two writers from each site will submit a top 10 list in each division. Fghters are given 10 points for a first-place vote, nine points for a second, etc., down to one point for 10th place. We will bring you the final stats here.

Participating in this month's poll are Dallas Winston and I from Bloody Elbow; Ariel Helwani and Dave Doyle from MMA Fighting; and Brian Hemminger and Thomas Myers of MMA Mania.
